Mark Esqueda, an American citizen and military veteran born in Texas and raised in Minnesota, is in a fight with the United States government after it questioned his citizenship when he twice applied for a US passport. Greene Espel attorney Jenny Gassman-Pines and the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota are representing 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 US passport.
