"Put up or shut up" says Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in his petition for Republican candidate Donald Trump to "prove" he can pass a U.S. Citizenship exam.

"Donald Trump wants to impose new tests for immigrants coming to America," Reid's website states. "Immigrants already face vigorous testing before gaining citizenship. And before Donald Trump makes it even harder for these hardworking people to achieve their American Dream, he should prove he can pass the test himself."

Trump's stance on immigration has drawn criticism from both Republicans and Democrats, and he recently began to soften his rhetoric.

"We want to come up with a really fair, but firm, answer," Trump said on Monday about his immigration policy, The New York Times reports. "It has to be firm. But we want to come up with something fair."

Reid claims, in a letter reported by The Daily Kos, that in "more than 30 years representing Nevada, I've found no experience more rewarding and inspiring than attending naturalization ceremonies. Dozens of times," he continues, "I have had the privilege of watching new Americans raise their right hands and pledge loyalty to the United States.

"Immigrants make America great. Trump makes America small, petty, and mean."
