Inhofe Bill Would Make English the Official Language

Two conservative “Republican lawmakers, Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) and Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), introduced the English Language Unity Act of 2011 on Friday, a bill that requires that all official United States government functions be conducted in English,” CBS News reports.

"A common language is the most powerful unifying force known throughout history," King said in a release. "We need to encourage assimilation of all legal immigrants in each generation. A nation divided by language cannot pull together as effectively as a people."

Added Inhofe: "This legislation will provide much-needed commonality among United States citizens, regardless of heritage. As a nation built by immigrants, it is important that we share one vision and one official language."

The bill would also “establish a uniform language requirement for naturalization and oblige federal government officials to encourage people to learn English.”

The Senate bill is S. 503.

    Why doesn’t the left use language we can all understand. That’s the purpose of this bill afterall. I think GO FUCK YOURSELF translates to I’m to illiterate to carry on an intelegent argument.

    Let me re-write your comment into proper English:

    I certainly don’t expect Kochbaggers to have a strong grasp of the English language particularly in sentence structure and simple 4th grade spelling words. For any example, please read some of the signs carried by Kochbaggers.
