King Re-Introduces The English Language Unity Act

Feb 13, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve King released the following statement after re-introducing H.R. 997, the English Language Unity Act, in the 115th Congress:

“The most unifying force in the world has always been a common language,” said King. “Almost without exception, every nation state, including the Vatican, has at least one official language – except the United States. My English Language Unity Act requires all official functions of the United States to be conducted in English.

Federal law has long required immigrants to learn English before they can become naturalized American Citizens. America has risen to superpower status because we have successfully assimilated multitudes through English. Today, only Leftists oppose Official English. It’s time to make English the Official Language of the Unites States.”
