President Obama directly ordered a modification to the Oath of Allegiance to the U.S. that no longer requires incoming U.S. Citizens to pledge that they will “bear arms on behalf of the United States” or “perform noncombatant service” in the Armed Forces as part of their naturalization process.
So this means that in an time when people are streaming to the U.S. to pretend to become U.S. Citizens in order to commit acts of terror, now Obama won’t even ask them to voice the words that they will defend our country.
This ruling went in to effect July 21, 2015 as set forth by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
The United States Oath of Allegiance (officially referred to as the “Oath of Allegiance,” is an oath that must be taken by all immigrants who wish to become U.S. Citizens. The current Oath of Allegiance is as follows:
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
So what’s next to change?
