Yes, and require High School students to pass the test before they graduate

@98VVTGH from Kentucky answered…2 days

i feel like they should just be tested on how good they know language and government not history

@98VSH78from Guam  answered…2 days

Yes, but it should at least cover very basic and simple topics and aim to allow them to comprehend more than just a basic level of understanding.

@98VQRV9Progressive from Ohio answered…2 days

No, but to enjoy the same rights as the rest of the citizens they will still have to pass some tests, such as those before you are allowed to vote.

@98VPBB7 from Massachusetts answered…2 days

YES but also require american citizens to take citenzhip courses as well

@98T2MWJfrom Guam  answered…6 days

I think it depends on their reason for immigrating, some immigrants are fleeing from war and need safety, maybe immigrants coming for work should take the test

@98S89BV from New York answered…1wk

language and history isn't as important but understanding on how the government works is important

@88ZXZZJ from GU answered…1wk

Yes, but the test should be something other than a memory tests of random facts.

@98RS8PY from Virginia answered…1wk

No, but they should be taught basic rights about citizenship without having to pass a test.

@98QX39FSocialist from Massachusetts answered…1wk

No, allow and optional test but not mandatory, and provide extra benefits for those willing to take the tests. Also make sure the tests cover very basic and simple topics

@98QLH9CIndependent from Texas answered…2wks

Yes, but it should only require a basic understanding of the laws, not its history

@98QHTFX from Illinois answered…2wks

Yes, but the government should provide programs to prepare for said test.

@98Q4KYZDemocrat from Texas answered…2wks

Yes, they should have a basic understanding of our government and history. The questions are not hard

@98Q4JX7 from California answered…2wks

This is a state's issue and the federal government must stay out of it unless it threatens national security.

@98PXPCQRepublican answered…2wks

Decrease government alone and under governor generaland is very important and is warned the vita ciztenship and under ground European and states of America inc

@98PD8XH from California answered…2wks

yes, the only requirements I think they should learn are the language and laws

@98P6PBN from Michigan answered…2wks

Yes and no. I feel like in other ways this is discretionary and stupid. But at the same time we should have proof that the people coming into our country can handle being here in ways.

@98NYDJ2 from Florida answered…2wks

@98NJ2XQfrom Guam  answered…2wks

Yes, except for citizens from the Americas (Canada, Caribbean and Latin America)

@98NG877 from New York answered…2wks

@98N3BLK from Iowa answered…2wks

Yes, but it should not include "our language" because we do not have an official language.

@98MSLKY from Mississippi answered…2wks

I think the Citizenship Test should be less of a test and more of a course, although I am unfamiliar with the program since I am a natural-born citizen. They already go through background checks and such but having a basic understanding of what to do to not break the law might not be a bad idea.

@98MTD2Y from Washington answered…2wks

Yes, all citizens and immigrants should be required to pass a basic citizenship test

@98JGF2Y from North Carolina answered…3wks

I believe that a citizenship test should be required to become a citizen, but with more modern questions that are about economy, education, daily living, etc. because most American citizens couldn't pass the test.

@98LPNV5 from New York answered…3wks

@98K63LH from Wisconsin answered…3wks

Yes, but every citizen of the US must pass the test once they turn 21, so as to attempt to eliminate bias towards those born of two US citizens.

@98K3VXF from Florida answered…3wks

No they should be taught about our country's language, history and government. Maybe provided free access for a period of time to an online language courses

@98K3TX2 from Virginia answered…3wks

Yes, even more so if they have done suspicious things in the past.

@98K3JZF from Missouri answered…3wks

@98K3CG2 from North Carolina answered…3wks

I think it is important for them to have a basic understanding of our language but they don't need to necessarily know the workings of our government

@98JTNT4 from Massachusetts answered…3wks

Natural-born citizens should have to pass a citizenship test before being allowed to vote.

@98JCD8V from Texas answered…4wks

Yes, but the difficulty should be adjusted to the point where most high school graduates could pass
