What do you think? Should there be a test to be a citizen?
Should there be a test to be a citizen?
Lately, there has been a widespread discussion regarding the question whether immigrants who want to become citizens should or shouldn’t pass a certain test. In my opinion they certainly should because of the following reasons.
First of all, if all immigrants take a test, they will assimilate better in the society. It may even ease the racial tension coming from existing citizens because they will be able to trust the fact that applicants had to answer some requirements.
In addition, when you become a citizen you automatically receive many privileges such as the right and freedom to vote, welfare benefits and public education. New immigrants might take advantage of the easy ways to become a citizen and may have bad intentions. However, if there is a requirement to take a citizenship test, people can be sure that immigrants who want to become citizens have good intentions and are willing to make an effort.
To sum-up, in my view immigrants who want to become citizens should first pass a test. Citizenship gives you all kinds of rights and in order to enjoy these privileges- you must have a certain amount of knowledge about the country. It’s also a way to ensure that minorities assimilate better.
