On September 12, Immigration Equality and Lambda Legal filed a lawsuit against the U.S. State Department for refusing to recognize the birthright citizenship of Adiel and Roee Kiviti’s six-month-old daughter, Kessem. The U.S. government does not recognize Adiel and Roee’s marriage and is treating Kessem as though she was born out of wedlock.
This is the fourth time Immigration Equality has sued the Trump administration on behalf of same-sex couples and their families, and we will keep fighting until the U.S. State Department changes its discriminatory policy!
