Congress Requests Jerusalem, Israel To Be Recognized On Passports


Fifty-five members of Congress will ask President Trump to allow Americans born in Yerushalayim to have “Jerusalem, Israel,” written as their birthplace in their US passports.

“Despite the progress in moving the embassy, the State Department has not yet fully implemented the administration’s policy of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital for purposes of registration of birth, certification of nationality, or issuance of a passport of a United States citizen born in the city of Jerusalem,” the letter said.

  1. Whatever happened to that lawsuit against Hillary Clinton by a Father who wanted his daughter to have that stated on her passport (or something like that)?

  2. I was born in Jerusalem but it says “Israel”. I would think that if they didn’t recognize Jerusalem as Israel they would say born in Jerusalem. Not born in Israel. So the whole issue doesn’t make sense to me at all

    • Anon, a standard US passport lists both a city and a country of birth. You refuse to admit that your US passport doesn’t state “Jerusalem Israel”, rather you keep on repeating Israel in your US passport, as if a city of birth is not listed altogether. If your US passport list a country without a city, than you must come from a parallel universe.
