ProEnglish participated in the recent Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” Radio Row in Washington, and engaged media from all across the nation about the urgent need for official English legislation to adopt English as the official language at all levels of government.
ProEnglish Executive Director Stephen Guschov and Director of Government Relations Dan Carter conducted several interviews with radio stations from all across the nation at the event. They discussed a variety of issues, including the push for passage of the English Language Unity Act in Congress, White House engagement for a new Executive Order to be signed by President Trump, official English legislation at the state level, the importance of cultural and linguistic assimilation, and the recent Rasmussen Reports poll that showed that 81% of Americans support making English the official language of the USA.
ProEnglish also met with several members of Congress at the event, including Reps. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania, Jim Jordan of Ohio, and Raul Labrador of Idaho. Reps. Meadows and Barletta are co-sponsors of the English Language Unity Act in the U.S. House of Representatives, and Rep. Barletta also is the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania in the upcoming 2018 mid-term elections.
ProEnglish also met with author and political commentator Ann Coulter and political activists and social media stars Diamond and Silk at the event.
