Gay and lesbian US citizens who fall in love with someone from another country do not have the same rights to having their partners immigrate as fiances or spouses that heterosexual couples have. Love should not be illegal. Where we were born should not keep us from a lifetime with a loving partner.
We have a historic opportunity to right this injustice. Congress is rewriting the rules on immigration now. You know what it’s like to love someone from elsewhere. You may yourself have had to jump through some immigration hoops to be with your partner. Imagine if there was no hoop to jump through, only a wall of legislation and regulation keeping you apart. Whether you are gay or straight, please call Congress at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to include protections for same sex partners in Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
