The official Spanish Twitter account for the United States Citizenship and Immigration services lists the wrong date for the Declaration of Independence.

On Wednesday, the Spanish account for USCIS’ posted a Twitter poll asking people “When was the Declaration of Independence Adopted.” The dates listed that people can select from are June 29, 1779, July 4, 1779 and July 4, 1778.


The Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 4th, 1776.

After reviewing results of the poll it is clear our government is not the only ones uninformed on the date of our independence.
