A Republican congressman introduced legislation yesterday to push back against unspecified gender markings on U.S. passports, passport cards, and consular reports of births abroad (CRBA).
Representative Chip Roy (Tex.) introduced the Passport Sanity Act to hinder the promotion of “radical gender ideology” through State Department documents. The Daily Caller first reported the story with an exclusive look at the proposed legislation before its introduction into Congress.
Roy told the news website, “There are only two sexes — male and female — and that’s what official government documents should reflect. Passports exist to serve our national security by verifying the identity of those who exit and reenter our country; they do not exist to undermine reality.”
