Jerusalem Passport Case

Amicus Curiae Brief in Support of the Plaintiff


This brief was filed in support of the right of an American citizen born in Jerusalem, Israel to have Jerusalem, Israel listed on his/her passport as the place of birth. This right is provided for by law; but the State Department will not comply with the law. This Amicus brief focuses on the many places in which the Executive Branch refers to Jerusalem as a part of Israel - an undeniable historical fact. One of the places the Executive Branch does so was on the White House website. After this brief was filed, the Obama Administration removed all such references from its website.
