U.S. Spends $10 Mil to Give Foreigners Seeking Citizenship Free English, History, Civics Classes

Share:

The U.S. government just announced it’s spending $10 million to help foreigners seeking American citizenship by offering them free English, history and civics courses as well as naturalization legal services. The Obama administration dedicated north of $62 million to similar initiatives and there was tremendous hope that President Donald Trump would put a stop to the madness, or at least slash funding.

Instead, the cash will keep flowing via a Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program operated by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The goal, according to the Homeland Security agency that oversees lawful immigration to the U.S., is to promote the assimilation of lawful residents into the fabric of American society. “Naturalization requirements, such as knowledge of English and of U.S. history and civics, encourage civic learning and build a strong foundation upon which immigrants can fully assimilate into society,” the Homeland Security grant announcement states. “Through preparing for naturalization, immigrants will gain the tools to become successful citizens and assimilate into our society and meet their responsibilities as United States citizens.”
