Marine's Widow Immigration

So Hotaru Ferschke, a Japanese citizen, met her husband Michael Ferschke, a US Marine, while he was stationed in Okinawa. They fell in love, she got pregnant, and Michael was deployed to Iraq where he was then killed in combat. Their baby, Michael Ferschke III, will grow up never to meet his father… or live in America. Since they had a proxy wedding, each signed marriage documents on different continents, the United States of America does not officially recognize the marriage until the two have met again in person after the wedding. Yes, because that is possible. This fact will deny Hotaru US citizenship. Blame it on some 57 year old immigration law. Or blame it on Obama. People seem to like to do that.
