Newsmax Features ProEnglish In Article
Newsmax featured ProEnglish in a recent article about eliminating former President Bill Clinton’s onerous Executive Order 13166 that mandates foreign language translations and interpretations for all federally-funded agencies and contractors.
The Newsmax article quoted ProEnglish Executive Director Stephen Guschov: “The government must stop placing this onerous and costly translation and interpretation burden on Americans, and President [Donald] Trump has the ability to do so on a speedy basis via a new Executive Order.”
The Newsmax article also noted that a government study during the George W. Bush administration set the cost of the translation and interpretation services at $2 billion a year, a number that certainly has increased since the time of the Bush 43 study, and to perhaps as much as $30 billion in total paid by U.S. taxpayers to date.
The article added that President Trump has said often that speaking English is important for immigrants, and that Vice President Pence, while in Congress from Indiana, was a 5-time co-sponsor of the English Language Unity Act.
