Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Flirts with the Idea of Abolishing the Citizenship Exam

Published

2020 presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke believes that eliminating the citizenship test for immigrants is “something for us to think about.”

While on a public panel discussion, O’Rourke was open to the idea of abolishing the requirement that immigrants pass a test before becoming naturalized citizens. This comment was made during a candidate forum this past weekend in Des Moines, Iowa.

During this discussion, the citizenship test mandated by law was described as “another structural barrier” for migrants. Yahoo News reporter Brittany Shepherd reported this comment on Twitter while in attendance at the Iowa event.

In typical fashion, O’Rourke gave a neutral response when pressed about the question of repealing the citizenship exam.

One panelist allegedly said that the citizenship test requirement that immigrants must go through is disrupting the flow of immigration to America. In the panelist’s view, this justifies its removal in order to streamline the process.

In its current form, the citizenship exam consists of two parts where in one section prospective citizens must demonstrate English proficiency in reading, writing and speaking. The second part of this exam tests civics knowledge. Applicants are asked 10 questions out of a pool of 100.  To pass this section, an applicant must get six out of 10 correct.

While such a suggestion to abolish the citizenship exam seems far-fetched, it does make sense from an electoral standpoint.

Based on polling and certain demographic trends, Third World mass migration tends to favor Democrats significantly.

So, any reduced barrier to entry that facilitates mass migration would be welcomed by Democratic elites. Although Democrats would gain tremendously at the ballot box thanks to a looser migration policy, there could be unforeseen social consequences. Europe is Exhibit A of the corrosive social effects of mass migration, as migrant ghettoes are popping up left and right throughout the continent.

Such a scenario could become a reality in America if its current immigration system is kept intact, or in extreme cases, modified to encourage even larger migrant waves. Either way, the average American loses out.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
