    This is getting a lot of discussion:

    Donald Trump wants to deport every single illegal immigrant - could he?

    If the deportation of Mexican immigrants was taught in my high school U.S. History class (11th grade) I do not remember. Now it is a part of the discussion.

    I would like to explain that although I was not completely comfortable posting a link to the Christian Science Monitor article, I thought it excusable as it shows a mindset which is still prevalent today among many people.

    Must admit I lost interest in the CSM article fairly quickly and had a go at the " Could you pass a US citizenship test?" link in it, just out of interest-surprised myself how much I knew-or probably remembered from British & American Constitution studies fro pre-university exams ("'A' Levels") some 45 odd years ago! Recommend all non American members have a go-and maybe some of the American ones too?

    The test was making the rounds on facebook a year or so ago. Most people didn't know how difficult it was going to be. I've heard many people admit that immigrants they are acquainted with know more about American history than most people who were born here. In many cities there are classes where immigrants study in preparation for the test.

    I suggest all Americans take the test. In fact, I think I'll do so again. I won't tell how I score, though!

    Pass mark is 58%. I passed-though did tend to do better on the history questions than some of the others.

    I passed, too. I did at least as well as I ever did on a high school history test.

    Time for GOP panic? Establishment worried Carson or Trump might win.
