Supreme Court of US has agreed to consider Jerusalem birthplace law

The supreme court of United States has agreed to consider the integrity of the law intended to authorize the American citizens born in Jerusalem to state Israel as their place of birth in their passports.

The government has taken notice of the fact that the US citizens, who have taken birth in the places where sovereignty of a nation does not exist, are not allowed to state their place of birth in their passports.

Congress has made an attempt to pass a law, which stated that the state secretary would record Israel as the birth place in the US passport of the citizen on request of the citizen or a legal guardian on the behalf of the citizen.

The law has gained support from Jewish organizations of America.

Congress had forced the white House on this matter by means of many governments.

Even then, the state department whether through the administrations of the Democratic and Republican had/has not accepted the declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on passport listings, so far.

The decision regarding this issue is due in the court that is expected to begin hearing on the matter in October 2014 and end it by June 2015.
