New Republican governor signs executive order to remove any use of ‘Latinx’ from state documents

Breaking News

Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed multiple executive orders after being sworn in on Tuesday, including an order to remove the use of the controversial term “Latinx” anywhere it appears in state documents.

The order calls for state entities to review documents for occurrences of “Latinx,” “latinx,” “Latinxs,” and “latinxs” and then swap out any occurrences of those terms for variations of “Hispanic,” “Latino,” or “Latina.”

“One can no more easily remove gender from Spanish and other romance languages than one can remove vowels and verbs from English,” the order says. “It is the policy of the Governor’s administration to prohibit the use of culturally insensitive words for official state government business.”

Sanders, who served as White House press secretary during a portion of Donald Trump’s presidential tenure, was backed by the former president during her 2022 gubernatorial bid and has now made history by becoming the first woman ever to serve as Arkansas governor. Her father, Mike Huckabee, previously served as the state’s governor from mid-1996 until early 2007.

“CONGRATULATIONS to Sarah Huckabee Sanders on being sworn in today as the first female Governor of the GREAT STATE of ARKANSAS. She is a fantastic person and will be a truly incredible Governor,” Trump wrote in a Tuesday Truth Social post.

Last year, Sanders revealed that she had undergone successful surgery for thyroid cancer.

“During a check-up earlier this month, my doctor ordered a biopsy on an area of concern in my neck and the test revealed that I had thyroid cancer,” Sanders said in a September 2022 statement. “Today, I underwent a successful surgery to remove my thyroid and surrounding lymph nodes and by the grace of God I am now cancer-free.”
