Although the official language of the state of Mississippi is English, our state is made of up of diverse cultures and languages. It is imperative that official documents should be able to be translated into other languages so that all of our citizens receive the fairness they deserve in all legal and governmental proceedings. To imply that a document is not legal because it is not written in English is a dangerous precedent to set and infringes on the rights of all Mississippians.
