Napolitano Says DHS Will Move to Implement Same-Sex Marriage Sponsorships
“Days before the Senate is expected to pass a sweeping immigration reform bill, bi-national same-sex married couples have cause to celebrate after the Supreme Court’s decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act appeared to offer them equal treatment under U.S. immigration law,” NBC News says.
“Before [the Supreme Court] decision, an American was prohibited under DOMA from sponsoring a same-sex foreign national spouse for a green card. Practically, that meant that an American who married someone of the same sex from a different country was unable to bring their spouse to live legally in the United States as a heterosexual married person could.”
