Putting U.S. citizenship to the test

Jessica Coscia

Lately, many have been weighing in on what U.S. citizens should expect of those who aspire to become American citizens. I sometimes wonder if these folks even know what it takes to reach citizenship or legal status in this country and if they would be able to live up to those same standards, if put to the test.

At the end of the long, arduous and expensive road to naturalization, aspiring U.S. citizens must pass a naturalization test and interview. People who want to become citizens must answer 6 of 10 questions correctly from the 100 possible questions on the nationalization test.

More than 24,000 immigrants became citizens at 350 special ceremonies from June 27 to July 4. This Independence Day we celebrated the thousands of immigrants who have crossed the finish line to U.S. Citizenship and have chosen to make this country their home after years of hard work, sacrifice and dedication.

Yesterday, NBC 17’s Justin Quesinberry http://www2.nbc17.com/staff/52705/ quizzed people enjoying Independence Day activities at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.
