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.”

Senate to Vote Today on Amnesty

Dear FAIR Supporters,

After weeks of backroom deals and procedural maneuvering, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s rush to pass the 1,200 page Senate amnesty bill comes to a close TODAY! FAIR’s sources say they expect a final vote to end all debate on the legislation today at 11:30 a.m. If that vote passes, then a final vote on the bill is expected at 2 p.m.

    Mass Immigration Is Unsustainable on

    How about an offset to make up for this new expansion of immigration? Unfortunately, it’s always higher. Consider that with the CIR bill–the huge increase will be the new baseline and it will be higher from there. Of course, only a small percentage of citizens favor increasing the immigration level but get it anyway.

    Now there is fighting in Britain between the Sunni and Shia branches of Islam. Which was the source of the violence in Iraq after the fall of Saddam. It’s why there is constant violence across the Islamic world. Why do we continue to pretend that everyone is an equal asset to this country. If that’s saying we have prospered because most of our immigration in the past was from the tolerant enlightened-thinking countries of Europe, so be it. It’s a fact.

    Whether it’s Mexico or other countries, many of them have a tradition of corruption and violence, and pretending that one society is as good as the other is burying your head in the sand. If they’re offended by being portrayed as such, here’s the answer. Change your actions and you will change the perception.
