ENGLISH FIRST FOUNDATION is involved in a case before the U.S. Supreme Court -- a case that is essential for us to stay on mission in making English the official language of our nation.

With control of the two chambers of the United States Congress now split, one common, bipartisan goal is emerging: increasing employment.
