Did you know that……………………..………
In Sacramento, Democratic state Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) wants to repeal 227 and reinstate bilingual education.
Thank you for all of your phone calls into the Georgia State Senate, Lt. Governor Cagle’s and Governor Deal’s offices last week urging them to allow a Senate floor vote on SR 1031, to amend the state constitution to make English the official language. SR 1031 would have also prevented the state from issuing driver’s license exams in any language other than English. Unfortunately, the current Leadership refused to add SR 1031 to the Senate floor agenda to guarantee it an up-or-down vote. So, last week, your elected officials decided to cater to the demands of non-citizens (A.K.A. non-voters) and disregarded the will of the people who voted them into office.
Polk County Wisconsin
ARLINGTON, VA— ProEnglish, the nation’s leading advocate of designating English as the official language of government, today praised the Polk County, WI, Board of Supervisors for voting 13-9 to declare English as the county’s official language. It specifically requires all audio, video, printed materials, signage or other materials used in any official capacity to be in English.
A new bill has been introduced in the Alaska General Assembly that would add 20 Native Alaskan languages to the state’s longstanding official English law.
HB 216, which has passed out of the House Committee on Community and Regional Affairs, was introduced by Rep. Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins (D-District 34).
In 1998, a solid majority—69 percent—of Alaska voters approved a ballot question (Measure 6) to establish English as the only official language of the state, but HB 216 seeks to weaken this longstanding statute.
ProEnglish Op-Ed in The Washington Times on the Terri Bennett Lawsuit in Arizona
Arizona student fights for English only at college as law requires
Student fights back after school punishes her for insisting law be obeyed
It has been almost a year since Terri Bennett, a nursing student at Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz., asked school administrators to ensure that students speak English in her class so she could properly ask questions and learn the subject matter.
Yet after making that reasonable request, she says the director of the nursing program called her a “bigot” and other vicious names. Then she was later slapped by the college with a nine-month suspension.
It is incredible to think that this can happen in the United States, where the motto “E Pluribus Unum — “Out of many, one” — has been the traditional assimilation model for everyone who seeks to be an American united by our common English tongue.
It is happening more and more, with the Bennett case being one of the most egregious examples to date.
