Civics Test

6A67E217-FB27-46F7-AE18-3AA20111D693So I just read that Trump is planning to make a big splash tomorrow when he rolls out a two-pronged immigration proposal that would make sweeping changes to the legal immigration system. One of the two prongs includes requiring potential immigrants to take a civics test.

In addition to mandated checks, like a health screening and background check, immigrants would be required to pass a civics test.

“They don’t need to be Shakespeare,” one official said, “but they should have the ability to navigate the law.”

I’m curious if Trump would be able to pass that civics test. He seems to know little to nothing about civics and has a total disregard for the law.

Oh the irony.

      Trump will cheat on the test, just like he does at golf and at life.

    I was just thinking that Trump could never pass a civics test. I’m not sure he could even read the questions.

      We actually have a test here to become an Australian citizen and even Australians can’t past. So goodness knows how other people pass it? I guess those these tests could probably be shown how little Americans know about their country? I think a lot of people just assume that immigrants knows nothing about the countries they flee too, because they don’t.

        We, too, have citizenship tests here in the US that people who are seeking citizenship must pass. But before immigrants can even apply for citizenship, they must get a green card, then establish the required five years of continuous residency, and then apply for naturalization, which can take another 6+ months. But Trump wants immigrants to take and pass a civics test just to get into the country.
