Senator James Inhofe has filed bill S.992 the National Language Act of 2009. What this bill does is declare English as the National Language of the government of the United States and states that the government shall preserve and enhance the role of English as the national language.
The bill also states that nobody has a right, entitlement or claim to demand that the government provide documents or translation services for another language. This is currently a huge waste of money to the taxpayers of the United States. All of those who come to this country should be expected to either learn English of their own accord or provide their own translation services either through their own financial means, charity or the many groups in this country who claim to actually care about immigrants.
It's amazing the amount of groups that claim to care about new immigrants, but then do nothing to help them assimilate. In many cases this is intentional as they want these immigrants to remain unassimilated for racist goals and aims and for power over these new immigrants.
I do note however that the bill does not prohibit the government from providing documents in other languages. But this is by choice rather than mandate that such be provided.
Call your Senator and demand that they co-sponsor this bill as it is in the best interests of all Americans. If your senator is already a co-sponsor call and thank them and tell them to encourage other senators to join on.
