In the 2017 JPMorgan Chase & Co. Annual Report, Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon makes the following statement:
“[It] is unlikely the American public will feel comfortable with immigration if we don’t revert to some core principles. Immigrants should be coming here because they want to be part of our country and who we are as a people. America was an idea borne of freedom, with freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise, and equality and opportunity. People immigrating to this country should be taught American history, our language and our principles. The American public will not be pro-immigration if we don’t address these issues.”
ProEnglish is encouraged that Jamie Dimon seems to understand English’s historic role as America’s common, unifying language, and we appreciate his English language support in the 2017 JPMorgan Chase & Co. Annual Report, and we hope that Dimon continues to use his influence to advocate in robust fashion for immigrants to be taught English.
