I have a question though. On the letter, that was posted above, the first page at the bottom, the last sentence at the bottom, tends to lead me to believe that a RSO applying for a passport will automatically denied.

At https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/22/51.60 section g states: The Department shall not issue a passport card to an applicant who is a covered sex offender as defined in 22 U.S.C. 212b(c)(1).

it is also at https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/retrieveECFR?gp=1&SID=5b219ccb7339b43fb5556ea62f774bc0&ty=HTML&h=L&mc=true&r=SECTION&n=se22.1.51_160

but at https://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/22CFR/HTML/22CFR/0-0-0-1/0-0-0-2898/0-0-0-3335.html
it is not even listed.

nor is it at https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CFR-2011-title22-vol1/pdf/CFR-2011-title22-vol1-sec51-60.pdf

So, was this a new section that was added that the last two urls do not know about (though they are gov’t sites)? More so, does this subsection mean what I think it means? That a passport will not even be given even with the identifer? I am confused. Can someone clear this up?
