Immigrants Uneasy about New Citizen Test

On October 1st, candidates for citizenship will be asked to take a new civics test to qualify. There are other aspects in the process, such as English fluency, that are tested. But the new test makes immigrants nervous. Critics think it's too abstract, though the intent was to raise it above the trivia of the current test. As a consequences, immigrant advocacy groups are organizing tutorials to prepare. (See NY Times article.)
