As a coalition committed to compassionate, comprehensive immigration reform, we are thrilled for same-sex families in states that allow marriage equality that no longer need to fear being torn apart by our nation’s broken immigration system.
"Federal recognition for lesbian and gay couples is a massive turning point for equality, but it is not enough until every family is guaranteed complete access to the protections they need regardless of state borders.”
One more day! The U.S. Supreme Court whittled down its list of cases today, and said it would rule Wednesday on high-profile Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) impacting the gay and lesbian community.
Proponents now say they have little doubt that even with the worst outcome from the court — upholding the ban — California voters would legalize gay marriage if the measure made it on the ballot again.
