doma immigration

Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and law professor David Strange made a wholly unfounded argument July 18, 2013, in The New York Times. Their attempt to carve LGBT families out of federal immigration protections is baseless and punitive.
Immigration is very complicated, so I contacted Bryan K. Randolph, an attorney practicing in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., area who is preparing to face an influx of cases of binational same-sex couples seeking recognition of their relationships for the purpose of immigration.
One impact of the Court's decision that resounds far beyond our borders, is in the area of immigration.
The DOMA decision aids binational LGBT couples; Senators formally added an amendment on Wednesday that increases border security measures in the "gang of eight" immigration bill.
Lesbian and gay binational couples remain shut out of green cards and fiancé(e) visas. As a result, LGBT families are still torn apart, forced into exile or left fighting to remain together in this country. None of them feel that we have already won, and to say that is an insult to their struggle.
