Will the USCIS ask me why I want to become a U.S. citizen? What are acceptable reasons that I can provide to USCIS?

USCIS does not ask an applicant for naturalization why he or she wants to become a U.S. citizen. Rather, unless there is evidence to the contrary, if an Applicant is shown to meet all of the eligibility requirements, files an application, pays the required fee, is successfully processed and interviewed, and is willing to take the oath of allegiance, such a person as a general rule is sworn in as a U.S. citizen.
