Question about citizenship in Europe

Reader comment on item: Islamist Violence Will Steer Europe's Destiny

Submitted by Gary Epstein (United States), Nov 2, 2016 at 08:55

Here is a question about what does it take for a migrant coming into Europe to achieve citizenship in any particular European country: Do they have to apply for citizenship and subsequently pass a test and then take an oath to support and defend whatever is the equivalent of the Constitution of the United States?
