The Salazar amendment passed a few minutes ago...

This amendment makes English the "national language" but does not punish those who do not speak English.

So the citizenship requirement of English proficiency which passed just moments before may be null and void. Denying citizenship to someone because they do not speak English (as the previous amendment would do) I am sure will be considered "punishment."

Hmm...I guess I was wrong. I said it would be Kennedy who killed the amendment and I gave him until tomorrow.
