Washington Post Editorial in Support of Equality in Immigration Laws

March 16, 2009

The Washington Post has an editorial today that supports extending immigration laws to cover gay couples.  While not high on the radar, you have to respect them for recognizing its importance.

THE UNITING American Families Act would allow gay and lesbian Americans and permanent residents to sponsor their foreign-born partners for legal residency in the United States. The bill, introduced last month in the Senate by Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and in the House by Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), would add “permanent partner” and “permanent partnership” after the words “spouse” and “marriage” in relevant sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act. If passed, it would right a gross unfairness…

…American gays and lesbians should not have to choose between their country and their partners.
