Feb 13, 2015
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve King released the following statement after re-introducing H.R. 997, the English Language Unity Act:

"There is no more unifying force in the world than a common form of communications currency," said King. "Every sovereign nation sate, including the Vatican, has at a minimum, an official language. It is essential that we make assimilation of our legal immigrants a top priority and learning English is an important first step in that process. My English Language Unity Act provides consistency among Americans by requiring all official functions of the United States to be conducted in English, establishes a uniform language requirement for naturalization and places an obligation on representatives of the federal government to encourage individuals to learn English.

We are a nation strengthened by assimilation, and it is important we share one vision and one official language. English as the official language of our nation ensures as a Nation we are bound together and all have the ability to achieve the American dream."
