Parental Gender at Heart of Supreme Court Citizenship Case

The question the Supreme Court will consider on November 9, 2016, is whether it is a violation of the United States Constitution for the citizenship of a child born to unmarried parents to differ based on the gender of a parent. As it stands now, U.S. law makes it more difficult for children of U.S. citizen fathers than children of U.S. citizen mothers to obtain derivative citizenship when the child is born abroad. The Supreme Court will decide whether this is constitutional.
