Taxpayer-funded flash cards: "Name one benefit of being a citizen of the United States"

A Hill source tipped me off to government-funded “civics flash cards” that DHS is distributing to immigrants seeking to gain US citizenship.

One of the cards asks foreigners to name one benefit of being an American citizen. One card’s answer mentions the right to vote. Good so far.

But take a look at this one, which stands JFK’s famous admonition on its head. Ask not what you can do for America, ask what America can do for you. Gimme, gimme, gimme!



Yeah. That’s right. Your tax dollars are supporting flash cards that coach non-citizens to say that the most cherished benefits of living in the U.S. are government jobs, US passports, and immigration rights for family members.

And you wonder why the open-borders entitlement mentality is so prevalent.

How about printing this on a flash card?

Entry into this country is a privilege, not a right.

Photoshop, anyone? We can print them up and send them to DHS’s Citizenship and Immigration Services agency.


You can view the entire flash card set here. Take note of the question on page 45 about the United Nations, too. Send in your suggestions for new cards or rewrites.
