The Ulster Scots Making Of America

EDM number 1298 in 2017-19, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 22/05/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Immigration and North America.

That this House notes that 2018 marks the 300th anniversary of one of the most significant of the early waves of Ulster Scots emigration to the emerging US; further notes that many of the first pioneers and Presidents came from this stock, including Presidents Andrew Jackson and James Knox Polk, Sam Houston, Davy Crockett and others, including many of those who helped fashion and build what was to become the most powerful nation on Earth; and expresses the hope that President Trump's forthcoming visit to the UK will build on these historic links.

This motion has been signed by a total of 7 MPs.
