I was asked again lately about why I chose to be an indie author. And I’ve discussed my self-publishing journey before, mostly in the moment when I put out my first book. But the true answer to why I ended up self-publishing came a lot in hindsight and some examination of the very uncomfortable truths […]

By CHRISTOPHER WEBER LOS ANGELES — A federal judge in California ruled Thursday that a twin son of a gay married couple has been an American citizen since birth, handing a defeat to the U.S. government, which had only granted the status to his brother. The State Department was wrong to deny citizenship to 2-year-old Ethan Dvash-Banks because U.S. law does not require a child to show a biological relationship with their parents if their parents were married at the time of their birth, District Judge John F. Walter found. A lawsuit filed by the boys’ parents, Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks, sought the same rights for Ethan that his brother, Aiden, has as a citizen. Each boy was conceived with donor eggs and the sperm from a different father — one an American, the other an Israeli citizen — but born by the same surrogate mother minutes apart. The government had only granted citizenship to Aiden, who DNA tests showed was the biological son of Andrew, a U.S. citizen. Ethan was conceived from the sperm of Elad Dvash-Banks, an Israeli citizen. A federal judge in California has ruled that the twin son of gay couple Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks has been an American citizen since birth, handing a defeat to the U.S. government, which had only granted the status to his brother. District Judge John Walter said Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019, that the State Department was wrong to deny citizenship to 2-year-old Ethan Dvash-Banks. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File) The suit was one of two filed last year by an LGBTQ immigrant rights group that said the State Department is discriminating against same-sex binational couples by denying their children citizenship at birth. The cases filed in Los Angeles and Washington by Immigration Equality said the children of a U.S. citizen who marries abroad are entitled to U.S. citizenship at birth no matter where they are born, even if the other parent is a foreigner. Only the Los Angeles case was decided Thursday. The State Department did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on the ruling. Previously the department pointed to guidance on its website that said there must be a biological connection to a U.S. citizen to become a citizen at birth. “This family was shocked and appalled and angry when they were told their family wasn’t legal,” said Aaron Morris, executive director of Immigration Equality. “They wanted their twin boys to be treated exactly the same.” Morris said the government wrongly applied a policy for children born out of wedlock to married same-sex couples. Walter agreed, writing that the State Department statute does not contain language “requiring a ‘blood relationship between the person and the father’ in order for citizenship to be acquired at birth.” “This is justice! We are hopeful that no other family will ever have to go through this again. It’s like a giant rock has been removed from our hearts,” Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks said in a statement provided by Immigration Equality. Andrew Dvash-Banks was studying in Israel when he met his future husband, Elad, an Israeli citizen. Because they couldn’t marry at the time in the U.S. or in Israel, they moved to Canada, where they wed in 2010. The children were born by a surrogate in September 2016. Everything seemed fine until the couple brought their cranky infants to the American consulate in Toronto a few months later to apply for citizenship and the woman at the counter began asking probing questions they found shocking and humiliating. The consular official told them she had discretion to require a DNA test to show who the biological father was of each boy and without those tests neither son would get citizenship. The men knew that Andrew was Aiden’s biological father and Elad was Ethan’s but they had kept it a secret and hadn’t planned on telling anyone. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] After submitting the DNA test results that proved who fathered each boy, the couple received a large and small envelope from the U.S. on March 2. The big one included Aiden’s passport. The other was a letter notifying Andrew that Ethan’s application had been denied. The family has since moved to Los Angeles to be closer to Andrew Dvash-Banks’ family. The other case involves two women, one from the U.S., and one from Italy, who met in New York, wed in London and each gave birth to a son. The State Department didn’t recognize the couple’s marriage, the lawsuit said, and only granted citizenship to the boy whose biological mother was born and raised in the U.S.

A “MONSTER” dad battered his newborn son to death in a furious rage because the boy’s crying woke him up. One-month-old Brayden died after suffering a significant brain trauma, skull fractures and separated vertebrae, doctors said. Utah man Matthew Graves pleaded guilty to avoid a death sentence Graves punched his son, one-month-old Brayden, to death after the tot woke him up with his crying The baby’s father, Matthew Graves, 24, confessed to repeatedly punching the newborn to death in a plea deal that means he dodges the death penalty. After admitting one count of aggravated murder – a first-degree felony – prosecutors in Ogden, Utah dropped a misdemeanour drugs charge and a felony charge of allowing a child to be exposed to a controlled substance. The Standard-Examiner reports that Graves was arrested after doctors at a children’s hospital in Salt Lake City discovered the baby was suffering multiple non-accidental injuries, internal bleeding and “profound brain trauma”. During a court hearing last year, deputy Weber County attorney Letitia Toombs said that Graves woke up to the sound of an alarm, and Brayden’s crying, at about 6.30am on September 7, 2017. He punched the baby, and then put a pacifier in the boy’s mouth to quieten him. DELAY IN PHONING AMBULANCE Toombs said that while taking another child, a five-year-old living in the house, to daycare later that morning, Graves noticed Brayden wasn’t breathing, and phoned his grandma for advice. He then phoned for an ambulance. Dr Antoinette Laskey, a paediatrician who treated the infant, said he arrived at the hospital in an “extremely critical condition” because of his head and neck injuries. Dr Jason Lozano, an assistant medical examiner who performed the autopsy for the Utah Medical Examiner’s Office, told the hearing he’d found a significant amount of bleeding and swelling in the newborn’s scalp and brain. Dr Lozano ruled the death as a homicide, reports the Standard-Examiner. Cops told the court that when interviewing Graves, he said he’d punched his newborn repeatedly in the head because he was crying. [article-rail-section title=”Most read in World News” posts_category=”328″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] He also said he’d “blacked out from rage” while battering his baby. The court heard: “Matthew made comments that he is a monster, that he has lost all hope in life and is going to lose everything.” Graves is being held at the Weber County Jail without bail, ahead of sentencing on March 5. Deseret News reports that in exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors have agreed to recommend a sentence of at least 25 years, and up to life in jail.
