Reframing the National Security Language Policy

Posted by admin on January 18th, 2011 —

This national language policy, since it encourages far more U.S.
citizens to understand numerous languages, gives an essential
counterbalance towards the Official English legislation that Senator
James Inhofe released during the 2006 congressional debates on
immigration reform and that his fellow senators approved by a 63-34
vote (Inhofe Natl.). Senator Ihofe's English Language Amendment
targets immigrants in particular, demanding that they discover English
as being a implies to stop them from 'importing unsafe, links of
deadly philosophies that go against our American ideals' ('Inhofe
Statement'). Though President Bush and other federal officials may
share the same perception that all individuals dwelling within the
United States need to learn  English, they have also sought to
encourage' and to fund packages that enable' all U.S. citizens to find
out a number of languages. Even since the nationwide security language
coverage promotes multilingualism, nonetheless, English scholars need
to examine this coverage closely to understand the suggestions about
language, id, and public participation that inform its vision for
language arts education.
