Gender Equality for Parents in Immigration

Parents, children and immigration were before the Supreme Court of the United States last week.  The Challenges of Family Law and Policy in Immigration Regulation are never easy to sort out, but always critical to families.
An immigration rule which makes it harder for unwed fathers to confer citizenship on their children than unwed mothers seemed likely to fall after oral argument before the Court in the case of Lynch v. Morales-Santana, which was argued November 9, 2016.  The discussion seemed to suggest that the constitutional rules of immigration may be changing. The justices spent most of the time trying to figure out the best remedy for this gender inequality.  A Christian Perspective on Gender Equality might prove helpful here, particularly in efforts toward family restoration. For more about this case and family immigration you can listen to this Cases & Controversies podcast.
Family restoration is always a guiding principle for immigration matters.
