Hallelujah! President Trump Admin. Set to Allow ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ on Passports


President Trump is the GOAT! No one else comes even close. And probably never will.

Trump Admin. Set to Allow ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ on Passports, Politico Reports

By Haaretz, October 28, 2020

The Trump administration is set to allow Jerusalem-born U.S. passport holders to add “Israel” to their birthplaces, Politico reported.

On Wednesday, Politico quoted an administration official who confirmed the change, which reverses decades of policy under Republican and Democratic presidents.

Jerusalem-born Americans began seeking to change to their passports almost immediately after Congress passed a law in 1995 recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but the State Department until now has not allowed the change. In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Obama administration’s right to disallow the inclusion of “Israel” in a case that was decided according to precedents granting the executive branch preeminence in determining foreign policy.
Allowing Israel as a designated birthplace for those born in Jerusalem is consistent with President Donald Trump’s 2017 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and his moving of the U.S. embassy there the following year.
