Passport Photo Op After Trump Jerusalem Announcement?
Dr. Aaron Lerner 5 December, 2017
“Recognition is a matter on which the nation must speak with one voice. That
voice is the president’s.”
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in majority opinion - Zivotofsky v.
If President Trump declares that Jerusalem is Israel's capital the immediate
operative ramification should be that the US passports of American citizens
born in Jerusalem have "Israel" recorded as the "place of birth".
If Mr. Trump makes an announcement, Washington's ambassador to Israel has
the opportunity to orchestrate a photo opportunity to give substance to the
announcement by arranging to immediately enter the word "Israel" for "place
of birth" in the US passport of an American citizen born in Jerusalem.
Suffice it to say that the current ambassador personally knows scores of
Jerusalem born American citizens.
