Little tiny Homer Township, located in Western Will County IL decided to jump on the anti-immigrant bandwagon this week. Although they readily agree that the township has no problems with illegal immigrants, and that all town documents are printed in English and have never been requested otherwise, they felt a need to pass a resolution this week declaring English their official language. One might wonder why, and you would not be alone. This wholly symbolic gesture will have no effect on life in Homer Township. The township has a population of about 30,000 with approximately 3600 Hispanic residents with very little governing responsibilities. Perhaps that explains why they have no more pressing matters to cover.
