AUSTIN -- Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court supporting the right of U.S. citizens born in Jerusalem to have Israel recorded on their U.S. passports as their place of birth. Under federal law, the Secretary of State is statutorily required to record Israel as the place of birth if an American citizen born in Jerusalem requests that designation. The Obama Administration, however, is refusing to comply with the law and is ignoring passport applicants’ requests, instead recording Jerusalem as their place of birth.

Attorney General Abbott issued the following statement on the amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court:

“Once again, the Obama Administration is simply ignoring a duly enacted federal law. In this case, the State Department is refusing to comply with a federal statute that specifically authorizes U.S. citizens who are born in Jerusalem to have Israel listed as their place of birth on their passports. The President and Secretary of State do not have the authority to simply ignore federal law and must honor Jerusalem-born U.S. citizens’ right to have Israel listed on their passports.”

The case is Zivotofsky v. Kerry, No. 13-628.
