Incredibly, many Latino U.S. Citizens cannot get passports, even a 30 year veteran of the Border Patrol! Read our news release about the spike in cases like these.
There’s two common denominators: they have Hispanic surnames and were delivered by midwives. In a few isolated instances, a handful of midwives earned extra money by preparing fraudulent documents for non-citizens, but now the reaction by the Departments of State and Homeland Security is way over the top and innocent citizens are denied their constitutional right to due process, to travel freely, etc.
The news story below mentions a settlement to the class action lawsuit, in which the Department of State agreed to consider applications of citizens delivered by midwives. However, the Department of State then denied nearly all the applications, and now another lawsuit has been filed, and the plaintiffs are seeking class action status! The numbers are now likely in the thousands, as compared to a handful years ago.
