Immigration for lgbt
Among the growing problems that have immigration reform advocates concerned is the fact that Gay and Lesbian couples are left out legislation expected in congress shortly. A member of the Southeast Immigrant Rights Network Monica Hernandez says the bill will not include provisions for allowing same sex couples to apply for green cards for non-citizen partners. Hernandez says she appreciates the administrations efforts to unite LGBT families by its marriage equality stance but President Obama has fallen short… Current immigration laws don’t treat gay and lesbian couples as a legitimate family because the Defense of Marriage Act doesn’t recognize same-sex marriages. Hernandez is hoping a change will come if the Supreme court issues a decision on DOMA favorable to LGBT citizens. (CC)
