Immigration Rights For Same Sex Couples? Yes Please!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Let's make this happen!

Yesterday, House Democrats re-ignited their push for the Uniting American Families Act, which would "grant same-sex couples the same residency rights currently enjoyed by heterosexual couples under U.S. immigration law."

Here's what House Judiciary Subcommittee ranking Democrat Jerry Nadler had to say about it:

"Today thousands of committed same-sex couples are needlessly suffering because of unequal treatment under our immigration laws, and this is an outrage. Our Constitution guarantees that no class of people will be singled out for differential treatment — and LGBT Americans should not and must not be excluded from that guarantee."

Here's what Rep. Zoe Lofgren had to say about it:

"It's appalling that the United States government forces families to separate. As a nation, we should be encouraging the cohesion of American families, not forcing the deportation of partners and parents."

We wholeheartedly agree with this, and we truly hope that this bill gets passed in the house!
