Petitioner's reply to the Solicitor General's Opposition to Certiorari. The Solicitor General challenged Petitioner's claim regarding the unconstitutionality of former 8 U.S.C. §1432 (a statute that discriminates based on illegitimacy and sex to deny the children of unwed fathers automatic derivative citizenship) and argued that he does not have standing to raise the issue of sex-discrimination. Cases continue to arise in the federal courts, challenging the constitutionality of §1432 on this same basis, so we hope the Supreme Court will grant cert and consider this important issue.
