Client Win: Greene Espel Client is Declared U.S. Citizen

Mark Esqueda, an American citizen and military veteran born in Texas and raised in Minnesota, was twice denied a U.S. passport by the United States government after it questioned his citizenship. Greene Espel attorney Jenny Gassman-Pines and the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota represented Mr. Esqueda in a lawsuit to compel the United States to recognize his citizenship and afford him rights that should come readily and simply to all Americans like him, including the right to a U.S. passport.
