Trump Administration is Changing the United States Citizenship Test

Some of the questions asked on the U.S.Citizenship test may include two Bill of Rights in the Declaration of Independence, naming one of five U.S. territories, or give the exact number of amendments in the Constitution of the United States of America.

Immigrants who wish to become citizens of America must take and pass the test not only to measure knowledge of U.S. civics but to understand fully the functions and values of the U.S. government and all responsibilities and rights that go along with being a citizen. The Trump administration is gearing up for an updated version of the test, which will be out before the end of President Trump’s first term.

The last time the test was revised was in 2008, and 10 questions are given to the applicants from a list of a hundred in three different categories: American History, American Government, and integrated civics (Symbols, geography, and holidays). All questions are available for every applicant to study and learn, so there are no trick questions.

Since the executive branch handles everything about the test and President Trump in charge, liberals are already getting their pacifiers ready for crying. President Trump has already made it clear he wants the laws and policies on immigration revised for the better.

Ken Cuccinelli, the USCIS acting director who was appointed by the president last year told journalists, “Isn’t everybody always paranoid that this is used for ulterior purposes? Of course, they’re going to be sorely disappointed when it just looks like another version of a civics exam. I mean that’s pretty much how it’s going to look.”

In the first two years as president, Trump has cut back on the number of refugees allowed into the U.S., made it more difficult to qualify for asylum, and overhauled the visa program to have those with advanced degrees first, along with those able to speak fluent English.

All of this is designed to keep America from becoming a third world country or worse. Liberals do not see it this way as they cry out “racism” or other slanders to keep Democrats in charge.

Many of the USCIS officials only see the test as a reshuffling or rewording of some of the questions which bring the test to a more modern education standard. Cuccinelli said, “I just think we need to freshen the material. Even if all we do is go pull questions from 2000 and questions from 2008.”

Last year, USCIS naturalized over 750,000 people. An immigrant has to be a permanent resident of the U.S. for no less than five years before being considered to apply. Immigration attorneys claim there is a backlog that goes back to 2016 and the list continues to grow.

According to USCIS, an applicant must answer six out of ten questions correctly to pass.

Not every question on the test is easy. Cuccinelli said, referring to question number 20: Who is one of your state’s U.S. senators now? “I can’t tell you how many spouses seeking to become citizens know more about that answer than their spouse.” Cuccinelli and his staff said they “joke about the ones that currently exist and whether we know them all.”

The last revision in 2008 removed the trivia feel of the test and put it up to par with incorporated questions meant to understand the U.S. government and the birth of America. Cuccinelli said there is hardly any difference with how this test strikes him as compared to the last revision. He found some questions should have never been asked like the questions concerning the United Nations.

He said it was “preposterous because it has absolutely nothing to do with the United States of America, and having such a question in there is just not right.” He added, “Who gives a flying rat’s ass that the U.N. is located in the United States? So is the Russian Embassy. We don’t ask about Russia. But nothing stands out as inherently wrong with the existing test”

Cuccinelli continued, “Really, and you see it in a lot of the questions that are already there. I want to see it reflecting American principles, constitutional principles, that are unique that help makes us exceptional and are frankly part of the reason people want to come here.”

Officials stated, “A lot of the questions such as ‘What is the economic system in the United States?’ and ‘What was one important thing that Abraham Lincoln did?’ is likely to stay the same.

  26. Hi, just wanted to mention, I loved this post. It was practical.
    Keep on posting!

  27. Everyone who is to be counted should make it right showing who they are and where they came from and how many of them are in the United States, we are allowing a certain number of congress people in to defend the citizens but the real question what is the real Number of citizens, which will cut down on representatives we are paying and lessen the number of government officers which are paid by the federal Government, and every state that is on a list of sanctuary city will finally be known who they really are as they and I mean every state is granted federal money to take care of their citizens and no Illegal Alien should be allowed to collect any SS Money no SSI nothing at all No Free Medical care and no free food stamps and no free housing and no free life as they have learned the system and have and will be on it till the day they die and the day their children are dead. This will give us an accurate count of illegal aliens and the corruption will show through!

  28. There are a lot of native citizens born here, gone through our education system who can’t answer a lot of these citizenship questions. Sad.

  29. Say all of you Progressive Liberal Democrats including Todays Commie Socialist and Radicalized Islamic Muslim Squad Of Four, who only want a lot of under-privileged flunkies to be approved for US Citizenship, which is Illegal! You all most likely do NOT remember going through Ellis Island, WELL I DID, which used to be one of many US Immigration entry points, where a Migrant will have to Speak and Write the English Language, Ellis Island did have a functioning Hospital, because The USA did NOT allow Sick, Dangerous, Deadly Violent And Destructive Migrants To Enter The USA, and then the Sick, Dangerous, Deadly Violent And Destructive Migrants Had To Board A Ocean Liner Going Back To Wherever They Came From! I know it was sickening to send people back to their original countries, back then, The USA did NOT want anyone that was or is a Psycho, Loony or Crazy! And All Of Those Migrants Back Then Had To Love, Embrace, Honor Every Thing United States Of America Including The Pledge Of Allegiance To The US National Flag And The US Constitution, The US National Anthem! It is NOT a Privilege To Become A Legal Immigrant Of The United States Of America! The USA Is A Constitutional Democratic Republic, Where ONLY “We The Legal Citizens/People And The Legal Immigrants Of The USA Have The Right To Have A Voice, Freedoms And The Vote And Honor To Be An American!!!

  30. Is the test for US citizenships printed in English only?

  31. Members of Congress MUST take and pass BEFORE being Seated!. They need a twice as hard College Level Test on the constitution and a situation Ethics Test with real-world situations. Obama thought there were 57 States, and he wanted to give the mochers and GOVt. workers in District of Corruption two Senators and a voting Representative. NO WAY Hoshea,

  32. No other country in the world coddles people like we do, our country was built on immigrants from all over the world, and as long as they come through the proper channels we should welcome them, however we should put time limits on how long a person has to learn our language and our customs I believe 6 months should be sufficient,.
    We should never allow someone to take a drivers test in their own language, if they can’t reed our street signs they’ll be dangerous.
    They need to be able to read the test for themselves.

  33. I am glad they are changing the qualifying test for U. S. Citizenship. To pass the citizenship test; one must first be very conversant in the English language; that means one must understand English, must be able to read and be able to express oneship in English. One who seek U. S. Citizenship; must be patriotic that is love U. S. A. first before their allegiance to their country of origin. One must adopt to our country and not try to convert U. S. citizens to their country of origin’s
    thinking and more ( must learn how to assimilate).

    I am a naturalized U. S. Citizen who came to USA legally after High School graduation; served in the Military during Vietnam era; pursued and accomplished higher education at night after regular work hours; assimilated; and made great contribution to U.S. economy and technology. I had been a lawful citizen.

  34. glad this Administration is finally doing what is good for America.

  35. LET the DUMBOCRATS cry, they are a BIG BUNCH of cry babies anyway., anytime things do not go their way.

  36. Who wrote this article, some of the same people who write the instructions in the latest household appliance made in China? “U.S.Citizenship test may include two Bill of Rights in the Declaration of Independence,…”???????? Huh? The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments in the Constitution of the USA. It is not in the Declaration of Independence. Sorry, NO CITIZENSHIP FOR YOU!

  37. There should be a citizenship test. If you are going to settle in the U.S. you should at least know some of the history of the country you are settling in. The liberal commie democrats only want illiterates in the U.S. they are easily controlled.

  38. I think being able to speak English should be more important. There should be more on what it means to be an American and that it is where your aligeance should be.

  39. Not sure that most of native born americans can pass a civics test. Requiring a civics course in high school has gone the way of the mental institution – no longer funded considered to be required but necessary. Funny how the elimination of the mental institution predated elimination of requirenent to pass civics coursework to obtain a high school degree
