State Department tosses Trump regulation that denied citizenship to gay couples' kids [View all]

The Biden administration has ended a Trump-era policy that denied American citizenship to same-sex couple’s children born abroad via surrogacy or in vitro fertilization. The State Department will resume automatically granting citizenship as it did before former President Donald Trump (R) changed the policy.

The Trump administration classified the children as “born out of wedlock” to deny them citizenship.

Parents of a child born abroad to a U.S. citizen can go to a U.S. embassy and get their child’s U.S. citizenship recorded and a U.S. passport issued.

The State Department has now instructed all U.S. diplomatic posts to grant citizenship if the parents are married and one of the parents must have a genetic or gestational tie to the child. The change is retroactive.
