    Congress Defunds DHS' Foreign Language Mandate!

    Congress Defunds DHS' Foreign Language Mandate!
    June 13, 2012
    ProEnglish applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for passing an amendment that stops taxpayer dollars from funding unlimited translation services at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The agency was required to provide written and oral interpretation services in any language requested by the public under a Clinton-era executive order (EO 13166).
    The amendment offered by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) passed by a bipartisan vote of 224 to 189 last Thursday (Roll Call 362). Rep. Steve King stated: “We got along fine without this executive order up until the year 2000, and we’ll get along fine without it after 2012.”


    “The assimilation component doesn’t take place if you facilitate foreign language speaking within government,” Rep. King continued. “87 percent of Americans support this policy – the policy of English as the official language. There is nothing in it that prevents Justice or emergency services from using language services from taking care of the people.”


    Rep. King offered this amendment on the heels of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) recent decision to implement a nationwide “language access plan” after an unnamed illegal alien filed a complaint with USDA. The illegal alien alleged that the U.S. Forest Service violated her “civil rights” by calling Border Patrol for back up and translation assistance when she was discovered to be without identification in a national forest.

    (Aboard Air Force One)

    __________________________________________________ _______________________
    For Immediate Release August 11, 2000


    EXECUTIVE ORDER

    13166

    IMPROVING ACCESS TO SERVICES FOR
    PERSONS WITH LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY


    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and
    the laws of the United States of America, and to improve access to
    federally conducted and federally assisted programs and activities for
    persons who, as a result of national origin, are limited in their
    English proficiency (LEP), it is hereby ordered as follows:

    Section 1. Goals.

    The Federal Government provides and funds an array of services that
    can be made accessible to otherwise eligible persons who are not
    proficient in the English language. The Federal Government is
    committed to improving the accessibility of these services to eligible
    LEP persons, a goal that reinforces its equally important commitment to
    promoting programs and activities designed to help individuals learn
    English. To this end, each Federal agency shall examine the services
    it provides and develop and implement a system by which LEP persons can
    meaningfully access those services consistent with, and without unduly
    burdening, the fundamental mission of the agency. Each Federal agency
    shall also work to ensure that recipients of Federal financial
    assistance (recipients) provide meaningful access to their LEP
    applicants and beneficiaries. To assist the agencies with this
    endeavor, the Department of Justice has today issued a general
    guidance document (LEP Guidance), which sets forth the compliance
    standards that recipients must follow to ensure that the programs and
    activities they normally provide in English are accessible to LEP
    persons and thus do not discriminate on the basis of national origin
    in violation of title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended,
    and its implementing regulations. As described in the LEP Guidance,
    recipients must take reasonable steps to ensure meaningful access to
    their programs and activities by LEP persons.

    Sec. 2. Federally Conducted Programs and Activities.

    Each Federal agency shall prepare a plan to improve access to its
    federally conducted programs and activities by eligible LEP persons.
    Each plan shall be consistent with the standards set forth in the LEP
    Guidance, and shall include the steps the agency will take to ensure
    that eligible LEP persons can meaningfully access the agency's programs
    and activities. Agencies shall develop and begin to implement these
    plans within 120 days of the date of this order, and shall send copies
    of their plans to the Department of Justice, which shall serve as the
    central repository of the agencies' plans.

    Sec. 3. Federally Assisted Programs and Activities.

    Each agency providing Federal financial assistance shall draft
    title VI guidance specifically tailored to its recipients that is
    consistent with the LEP Guidance issued by the Department of Justice.
    This agency-specific guidance shall detail how the general standards
    established in the LEP Guidance will be applied to the agency's
    recipients. The agency-specific guidance shall take into account the
    types of services provided by the recipients, the individuals
    served by the recipients, and other factors set out in the LEP Guidance.
    Agencies that already have developed title VI guidance that the
    Department of Justice determines is consistent with the LEP Guidance
    shall examine their existing guidance, as well as their programs and
    activities, to determine if additional guidance is necessary to comply
    with this order. The Department of Justice shall consult with the
    agencies in creating their guidance and, within 120 days of the date
    of this order, each agency shall submit its specific guidance to the
    Department of Justice for review and approval. Following approval by
    the Department of Justice, each agency shall publish its guidance
    document in the Federal Register for public comment.

    Sec. 4. Consultations.

    In carrying out this order, agencies shall ensure that
    stakeholders, such as LEP persons and their representative
    organizations, recipients, and other appropriate individuals or
    entities, have an adequate opportunity to provide input. Agencies will
    evaluate the particular needs of the LEP persons they and their
    recipients serve and the burdens of compliance on the agency and its
    recipients. This input from stakeholders will assist the agencies in
    developing an approach to ensuring meaningful access by LEP persons
    that is practical and effective, fiscally responsible, responsive to
    the particular circumstances of each agency, and can be readily
    implemented.

    Sec. 5. Judicial Review.

    This order is intended only to improve the internal management of
    the executive branch and does not create any right or benefit,
    substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or equity by a party
    against the United States, its agencies, its officers or employees, or
    any person.
