MAR­RIAGE DOES NOT EQUAL CIT­I­ZEN­SHIP

“Re­vers­ing mar­riage equal­ity is not im­pos­si­ble, but it would re­quire at least one more va­cancy on the Supreme Court, from the pro­mar­riage-equal­ity side. What is not only pos­si­ble but likely, though, is that we will be­gin to think about mar­riage dif­fer­ently un­der Trump. Seek­ing mar­riage equal­ity was a bril­liant le­gal and civil-right strat­egy: it worked so fast and ap­plied so broadly that for many peo­ple it served as a short­cut to full cit­i­zen­ship. But the right to get mar­ried does not equal full cit­i­zen­ship. It is en­tirely pos­si­ble to be mar­ried and still be sys­tem­i­cally dis­crim­i­nated against.”
