On June 15, 2012 President Obama, under executive action, changed Homeland Security policy to not initiate deportation of non-threatening illegal immigrants who came to the United States before age 16. This process is know as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Today (August 15) was the first day U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) began accepting requests for deferred action.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History (NMAH) recently launched Preparing for the Oath: U.S. History and Civics for Citizenship. You can read and listen to short, interesting civics lessons; after each lesson, there is a related question from the pool of possible citizenship test questions. You can also practice taking the ten-question citizenship test.
