The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has implemented a new pilot naturalization test. It will be fully implemented in Spring 2008. It is meant to be a little more open ended and contain less of those jeopardy style questions. You have to get 6 out of 10 questions correct to pass the civics portion of the test. Not surprisingly, many of these questions are flawed. I shouldn't be too hard, they are only pilot questions. Anywho, I just took the test and got 141 out of 142. Why are there three branches of government? Isn't that like asking why are there three species of leptons? oh right, so "no branch (lepton) is too powerful".
You can try it for yourself here: Pilot Test.
Why is this test only given to people who want to become citizens? Shouldn't everyone have to take and pass this exam? If this test was give to everyone over the age of 21, regardless of whether they were born on or above U.S soil, there would be A LOT of people who would not obtain citizenship.
I wonder what Lou Dobbs would think about this? Even he is not that radical, right?
