..."switching to"? Wouldn't that require the US to have an official language in the first place?

Well, de facto, de jure, sure.

Now I'm wondering... has the US ever actually codified English as the language of the federal government? I know there's various state laws, but I'm not sure federally.

Nope. The US does not have any federally recognized official language.

And (all else being as it is) this is actually a good thing, because it means the federal government is required to provide services to people who do not speak English.

If the federal government adopted English as an official language, I'm sure (at least) hundreds of thousands of first-generation immigrants would lose access to welfare, disability, and legal services.

Hell, other nations have federal bureaus to manage how Their Language is spoken and written.

Could you imagine

"We're codifying English as the official language of the United States" and thousands of racist fuckheads rejoice
"so here is how you speak it properly" and the same fuckheads cry about their freedom to talk however they want

So many stupid signs demanding English as the official language, but this one always pops up first.

Not exactly a tweet, but it's twitter-related enough:

I have so many questions that I don't actually wish to hear the answers to.
