President Joe Biden is rolling back yet another controversial Trump-era legislation by changing back the required civic examination citizenship applicants must take.
In a Policy Alert Monday, the president announced that the civics examination requirement implemented in December 2020 will switch to an earlier version administered in 2008.
In the 2020s version of the civic applicants would have 128 possible questions on the exam, but with Biden’s new order, it will switch back to the 100 possible questions as seen in the 2008 version.
