FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Hoosier lawmakers have joined a growing number of states that want your kid to take another exam. To graduate high school, students would have to pass an exam similar to the naturalization test required for immigrants to become U.S. citizens.

Still a work in progress, the bill will come up for debate during the upcoming legislative session and is being championed by Indiana Senate Education Chairman Dennis Kruse, a Republican of Auburn.

Kruse told The Daily Signal that he’s eager to see Indiana students rise to the same standard as individuals applying for American citizenship.

“I don’t know why our own young people—who are born citizens here, who go through our regular school system—shouldn’t know the same information,” Kruse said.

It's Because their being purposuly dumbed downed. an illerate person does not question , they amimelessly go along,and do not use as many reasources as does a smart person ie. the perfect slave.

Just how do we get our own State Legislators on board for this needed education? I'm tired of listening to a group of so called high School graduates who do not know who the Vice President is or what his duties are or for most of the Senate and Congressional representatives. 

Call them Their in the phone book Hell i have them on speed dial. Both your State's Sen.'s and Rep.'s

Good One Marilyn C. made me LOL. thank you !!

Sometimes we just need a good laugh..........in the middle of all this stupidity and chaos.

I remember my high school civics class. it was 1 period per week my freshman year. that was it.

When I graduated High School in the late '70's, Civics was a required course to pass before a diploma was granted.

So what happened to the school systems of America since those times?

Good answer by storyTman, the left wing progressive teachers have destroyed our schools.  They will also teach that Obama THE TRAITOR is actually a good President.  WHAT A LIE!!

I wonder if the people administering the test could pass it themselves.  Hmmmm ...

Lois:  I don't think you know very much about Native American History, so I suggest you start doing some studying.  Did you know that the American government at that time gave them blankets contaminated with small pox, and deliberately gave them liqour before some of the treaty meetings?  Oh, and also deliberately killed off the buffalo, because this was their main source of food?   They were barbaric?  Check into what our government did to take their lands aways from them.  Oh, what about the trail of tears when they took the Cherokee nation from NC to Texas, Oklahoma, etc.?  I suppose that was just a fantasy concocted by the Cherokees?  Oh and there was a massacre by American calvary soldiers in CO., and they rode into Denver wearing wombs on their hats cut out of Native American women?  What about that?  YOu need to read and become more informed before making the comments you that you did.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
