Trump Administration to LGBT Couples: Your ‘Out of Wedlock’ Kids Aren’t Citizens

State Dept. to LGBT couples: Your children are not citizens

No parent can ever be fully prepared for the arrival of a new baby.  But when Roee and Adiel Kiviti brought home their newborn daughter  Kessem two months ago, they figured that they were as ready as they  could be. After all, they’d gone through the same process two years  earlier with their son Lev, who, like Kessem, was born with the help of  an egg donor and a gestational surrogate in Canada.

“It was as  straightforward as one can imagine,” Roee told The Daily Beast,  recalling the ease of bringing Lev home in late 2016, the infant’s newly  printed Canadian passport in hand, soon to be supplanted by an American  one. But this February, when Kessem’s fathers contacted the U.S.  consulate in Calgary to obtain a Consular Report of Birth Abroad for  their daughter—the legal equivalent of a birth certificate for Americans  born outside of the United States—something was different this time.
