Make English Our Official Language
Tell Your Senator to vote YES on the Inhofe amendment!
As the United States Senate debates immigration reform and prepares to pass blanket amnesty for at least 12 million illegal aliens, there is hope that some Senators are standing up for the American people.
Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) has submitted an amendment that would make English the official language of the United States. His amendment, identical to the National Language Act (H.R. 4408), sponsored by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) in the House, would require immigrants to learn English by making all official business conducted in English, including publications, tax forms, election ballots, and other items.
It is hard to believe that the United States has not already declared English as the official language. At least 26 states have declared English as their official language at the state level. In a recent Zogby Poll, conducted in March of this year, 84% of respondents supported making English our official language.
Making English our official language will go far in helping immigrants learn English and better equip them for success in our society. The Senate should pass the Inhofe Amendment and make English our official language!
The Senate will debate immigration legislation for the remainder of this week. The Inhofe Amendment could come up at any time. Your voice is needed to make sure we make English our official language!
