ProEnglish Executive Director Stephen Guschov and ProEnglish Director of Government Relations Dan Carter visited the White House to discuss a variety of official English legislation issues with a senior legislative aide to President Donald Trump.
The White House meeting, which occurred in the East Wing, focused on Trump administration support for the English Language Unity Act, the RAISE Act, the COST Act, and also the possibility of President Trump repealing former President Clinton’s onerous Executive Order 13166 with a new Executive Order signed by the President.
When President Trump was campaigning for the White House in 2015 and 2016, he frequently remarked, “We have a country where to assimilate, you have to speak English.”
Vice President Pence also was a loyal and strong supporter and co-sponsor of official English legislation when he was a member of Congress from Indiana.
ProEnglish was greatly encouraged by the East Wing meeting, and also looks forward to additional, follow-up meetings at the White House with more Trump administration officials in order to accelerate official English legislation and executive orders.
