Skip to comments.A same-sex couple is suing Trump administration for treating their daughter as ‘born out of wedlock’

A married gay couple are taking legal action against a Trump administration policy that has hindered their baby daughters fight for US citizenship.
Roee and Adiel Kiviti, who are both US citizens, ran into trouble with the State Department after welcoming baby Kessem via a surrogate in Canada earlier this year.
The couple are both listed on Kessems Canadian birth certificate, but the State Department treats the children of same-sex couples as born out of wedlock, only recognising her link to biological father Adiel.
The out-of-wedlock status has hindered the application for the birthright citizenship that she would be entitled to if her parents were recognised as a married couple.

Under U.S. law they would have to go through adoption procedures to make the kid theirs.
Nothing to do with their "married status".
Interesting intersection, of surrogate parenting, and legal recognition of same-sex marriage, with an international angle to it.
A real judge would throw this out of his or her court.
what did they expect for their bastard child?
My wife and I looked into international adoption years ago, and it would have been the same for us. We can get the names changed on the birth certificate after the fact, but the fact is we would NOT be the child’s biological parents, so we would have jumped through many hoops. So, we eventually got another domestic adoption. Plenty of hoops, but easier ones.
Here comes the waaaambulance.

These days it could be it’s court
This lawsuit will go nowhere......................
Formally Adopt her. Problem solved.
That’s why faggots are UNnatural. God and “nature” NATURALLY makes it so for separate species to produce. Men and women shag and create life. 2 faggots do the same and give birth to AIDS.
Call me cynical, but why did they use a surrogate in Canada unless they were planning on causing trouble and making a name for themselves? I’m sure they could have found a surrogate here. It’s like the gay activists trying to force a Baker to bake their wedding cake. I dont believe there were no other willing bakers.
Another “Cake Attack”
yuck. a whole lot of wrong in this story
Actually, the kid is a dyed in the wol bastard
This is all a lie. The kid is secretly a Targaryen.
I am guessing this law was in effect LONG before Trump became POTUS? But the headline infers it is due to Trump, that they are having citizenship issues for the child.
