Trump wants to quiz immigrants on civics — but many natural born Americans lack basic knowledge of government

President Donald Trump wants legal immigrants to pass a civics exam before they’re allowed to enter the country — but many natural-born Americans may struggle with such a test.

Trump proposed the new civics-test requirement Thursday as part of a sweeping overhaul to America’s legal immigration system, which he wants to turn into a merit-based system. He outlined the proposal in a Rose Garden speech.

Typically, people have to pass tests about American history only when they are applying for citizenship.

“To promote integration, assimilation and national unity, future immigrants will be required to learn English and to pass a civics exam prior to admission,” he said.
