Biden has initiated an “unprecedented” attempt to reinforce illegal immigrants confidence to apply for citizenship, according to The Western Journal.
“There is no greater testament to the strength of America than our willingness to encourage others to join us as U.S. citizens as we work together to build a more perfect union.”
“Becoming a United States citizen is a tremendous privilege,” Mayorkas stated.
“New citizens, strengthened with the power and responsibilities that American citizenship brings, make our Nation better.”
“This strategy will ensure that aspiring citizens are able to pursue naturalization through a clear and coordinated process.”
“The 2008 civics test was thoroughly developed over a multi-year period with the input of more than 150 organizations, which included English as a second language experts, educators, and historians, and was piloted before its implementation.”
When I was president, I delivered on my promise to build a border wall to protect our country.”
“All Joe Biden had to do was paint it,” Trump shared
“I built the wall; Biden built a humanitarian catastrophe.”
“Instead, Biden has enacted the most radical open borders agenda imaginable.”
From The Western Journal:
Biden issued multiple executive orders on immigration after entering office in January. One order was allegedly aimed specifically at “Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems.”
In February, Citizenship and Immigration Services announced a rollback of the citizenship test implemented in 2020 in favor of a version of the test that was first put into place in 2008, the final year of the George W. Bush presidency.
The reason, according to the CIS news release, was that the 2020 version of the test “may inadvertently create potential barriers to the naturalization process.”
According to The Washington Times, the Trump version of the test covered 128 questions for potential citizens to study. On the day of the test, they would be asked 20 questions from that group. To pass, they would have to get 60 percent of them — or 12 — correct.
