Here’s a Republican senator Steve King speaking (don’t know when; probably in the early 2000s) about making English the official language and about assimilation of immigrants. Something I warmly applaud him for. Of course, he is arguing his point using old political concepts, such as nation, but nonetheless.

Somehow these ideas, pretty normal for the late 20th century, have gone out of fashion by now and become a sign of a conservative.

As for the senator himself, the reason I heard about him at all must be because recently he was pilloried in the media for saying something "racist".
