No. This is a stupid question. What happens if they are born in Canada and they fail? We shoot them on the spot? Stupid.

yes, but it should be a test with insightfull questions that any citizen could answer

@96RWFKCfrom Manitoba  answered…1mo

Yes, but take out the historical component. Language, laws, culture, done.

@96JQJPSfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

Aryan immigrants of an "ethnic" attitude should go through a testing of the countrys language history, and government and should assimilate to the point where even if they are as noble Germanic as can be they have to act like a White Canadian and become a Protestant if a catholic.

@95J3CD8New Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

No, just the basics like who the prime minister is and the basic laws.

@9464BX6New Democraticfrom New Brunswick  answered…4mos

@93Z5FJGfrom Ontario  answered…4mos

Yes, but they should get some time to be educated on Canada first.

@93YSF72from Ontario  answered…4mos

Yes and ensure that they understand the basic law in the Netherlands

@558YLXV answered…5mos

Yes, but only if/when they are pursuing US citizenship or permanent residency

@93VKG4LPeople’s Partyfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

Yes, but I believe a test should only cover crucial subjects such as language and laws that make sure that said immigrant fully understands the content, this would prevent new coming foreigners from taking advantage of aid from the country due to how easily residency was granted from a 'simple knowledge test'

@8532KYJ from Georgia answered…5mos

Yes, and all American citizens should have to pass the exam as well upon turning 18

@92JXK3J from New York answered…5mos

Yes, but provide those who wish to become citizens a course to learn about us, ensure that they have the best chance of passing a test, and ensure that they are willing to be a patriot.

Yes, but provide classes on the information and make the same material and test part of high school education.

@92YHQCV from California answered…6mos

Yes. However, it should only cover very basic and simple topics, but if they want to, then they can be allowed to take a test that tests more than just a basic level of understanding

@4KMQBNC answered…6mos

Yes, and naturalized citizens should also be required to pass a citizenship test at the age of majority

@936DR7Xfrom Ontario  answered…7mos

@9334YP3 answered…7mos

Yes, and it should also cover the Bible, church history, the law, and their rights.

@93242FFfrom British Columbia  answered…7mos

I think the current test should be modified. Anyone can pass it with little studying.

@8532KYJ from Georgia answered…7mos

Yes, and citizens should have to pass the exam as well upon turning 18

@8ZLFQJW from Oklahoma answered…9mos

The citizenship test should be made less difficult, most citizens can’t pass it, let alone immigrants.

@8ZM4Q6Dfrom British Columbia  answered…9mos

Depending on the circumstance, if it's an emergency or dire situation with individuals who lack basic knowledge, should be investigated before consideration. Otherwise, acceptance should be allowed for those who willingly put time into thinking about immigrating and passed the test.

@85QWNPG from Colorado answered…9mos

No, it is absurd to expect them to know all of our history when many American citizens do not, instead focus on skills that could be provided to various sectors via mental acuity tests in their native language. The most important thing is merely the background checks, nothing more is truly relevant to their longterm success here.

@4SNPK4B answered…10mos

No, I am in general in favor of open borders. Also, citizenship tests very often turn out to contain bizarre and unnecessary questions.

@8Z3B45Kfrom Ontario  answered…10mos

Should be tested on language and government so they know their rights and freedom

@8Y85WN9from Alberta  answered…11mos

It should be adjusted to the level that the average citizen could pass as well.

@lucasnator4 from Illinois answered…11mos

Yes but only on a test that citizens have already proven they can pass.
