The Associated Press reports that a 31-year-old U.S. citizen who was born in an Indonesian refugee camp filed a lawsuit in federal court on Tuesday to challenge a newly amended Louisiana law that blocked him from obtaining a marriage license because he couldn’t produce a birth certificate. The law requires any foreign-born person wanting to get married in Louisiana to produce both a birth certificate and an unexpired visa or a passport from their country of birth. The suit alleges that the law violates the plaintiff’s constitutional rights and was intended to discriminate against foreign-born individuals.
