Make-a-List Monday: No or limited English

MPs who spoke little or no English at the time of their disappearances. There are probably a lot more on here than I include on this list. I have their primary language, if I know it for sure, in parentheses. I’m not going to make any assumptions; the guy from Korea probably speaks Korean, but it doesn’t say that so I didn’t list his language. Most of these people are either visitors or immigrants to the United States. I’m not including people who are unable to speak English due to some physical or mental disability.

    So sad! Any language barrier is bound to hamper any LE investigation, unfortunately.

      Edit: I realize that many of these MPs spoke English as well.
