Breitbart News has published a major article which explicitly details how DACA amnesty and chain immigration both threaten English as the primary language in the United States.
The Breitbart article states, “The English language remains the key behind the United States’ common culture, but with talks of amnesty for illegal aliens and the potential mass immigration that would follow, American English’s future is on rocky ground.
The Breitbart article notes, “The trend of the U.S. becoming a majority non-English-speaking country could readily be slowed for the national interest by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. David Perdue’s (R-GA) RAISE Act, which would not only cut legal immigration levels in half but give priority to English-speaking immigrants.”
The Breitbart article prominently quotes ProEnglish Executive Director Stephen Guschov about the organization’s endorsement of the RAISE Act.
Guschov observes, “The English component is especially necessary. The Clinton-era Executive Order 13166, which has never been repealed, requires all federal funds recipients, including hospitals, doctors’ offices, and school districts, to provide interpreters or translations for non-English-speaking persons. And they must pay for it themselves. If they don’t, they face civil rights violations, fines, and even jail time.”
Guschov adds, “Over a decade ago the General Accounting Office estimated the cost of EO 13166 was in the billions of dollars annually. So it is only common sense that if we’re going to be forced to bear the cost of immigrants who can’t speak English, we should require them to speak it before they get a visa and come into our country.”
Guschov continues, “EO 13166 heavily impacts the area of health care. Requiring extra translation services for the over 300 languages spoken in this country only increases the cost of health care on all Americans while promoting linguistic divisions.”
Guschov concludes, “It only makes sense that President Donald Trump add EO 13166 to his list of unwise or unconstitutional presidential fiats that should be relegated to the trash can. After all, a requirement for a green card or US citizenship is that one should be proficient in the English language.”
