According to Dictionary.com, citizenship is “the state of being vested with the rights, privileges, and duties of a citizen also the character of an individual viewed as a member of society; behavior in terms of the duties and obligations.” The United Sates has always been seen as the land of opportunity, and as a stable place to raise a family. In 2011, the U.S granted 1.9 million non-immigrants residence, and of that 270,000 of them resided in California. According to the Department of Homeland Security, most naturalization applicants are required to take the Naturalization Test, which focuses on English, U.S. history and government.
