ABSTRACT
The article reports on the new U.S. citizenship exam for people who want to be U.S. citizens. Most citizens can name the first President of the U.S. and know that July 4 is the nation's birthday. But U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials say people who want to become U.S. citizens should know more than basic facts. Emilio Gonzalez of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said that the new exam will focus more on the meaning of democracy and not on memorizing facts.
