Could You Become a US Citizen? Take the Test!
Every Fourth of July we celebrate this amazing country we live in but I feel like, personally, sometimes I take it for granted. All I had to do was be born in this country and I had citizenship, for others it's harder.
On Tuesday, immigrants were officially welcomed during a naturalization ceremony at Saratoga National Historic Park. People from all over went through proper protocol and are now citizens of the United States of America. According to WTEN, along with the naturalization process, they also read the Declaration of Independence.
Naturalization is such an interesting process to me. What other people have to go through to become citizens that I get just by being born at St. Peter's Hospital in Albany. Have you ever seen the test they have to take? Along with an interview and an English test they have to answer civics questions, take a look at some of them. How did you do?
