Biden’s throwing out another Trump rule that made it harder to become a citizen
Amy Lieu, The American Independent (February 23, 2021)
In a recent policy alert, the Biden administration and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that the version of the U.S. civics tests released at the end of 2020 would be withdrawn. In its place will be a 2008 version of the test which requires applicants to correctly answer 6 out of 10 questions (down from the latest version’s requirement of 12 out of 20). The Biden administration repealed the most recent version in light of the burden the more comprehensive test would have on application processing time, which slowed the process considerably.
