On July 23, Immigration Equality and Lambda Legal filed a lawsuit against the U.S. State Department for refusing to recognize the birthright citizenship of Derek Mize and Jonathan Gregg’s one-year-old daughter, Simone. The U.S. government does not recognize Derek and Jonathan’s marriage and is treating Simone as though she was born out of wedlock.
This is the third 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!
