house Bill H.R. 1543

Easing Citizenship Requirements for Elderly Immigrants

Argument in favor

It's appropriate for elderly immigrants to be able to bypass learning English, American history, and what the U.S. Constitution offers them, and instead just be. Besides, most people born here have no idea what their constitutional rights are anyway.

Argument opposed

Anyone who wants to be a U.S. citizen should learn about their rights, America's history, and be able to speak English. Exempting the elderly from these requirements is both agist and anti-democratic; the elderly are old, not dead.
