House Bill Introduced to Ban “Latinx” in Public Documents

The term was used four times in official White House press releases.

Representative María Elvira Salazar of Florida introduced a bill to the House to ban the use of “Latinx” in public documents released by the executive branch. The term has been used four times this year in White House public documents, all four of which were in biographies used for presidential appointees to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity for Black Americans. 

“Latinx” is a progressive term first used in 2004 as a gender-neutral alternative to “Latino” or “Latina.” It is generally used less frequently than its gendered counterparts or the more inclusive “Hispanic.”

“The Biden Administration is waging a woke crusade on Latino identity and the Spanish language,” Representative Salazar stated. “We cannot allow the Biden Administration to use White House communications to attack our language and impose progressive ideology on our people.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Congresswoman Salazar as she seeks to preserve the integrity of Hispanic language and culture.
  • For the president and his administration to consider the requests of those whose culture is being impacted by executive policies or procedures.
