This is a great day for Bi-National LGBT couples! Another reason to keep Obama as president. I am sure the other side would dismantle this directive on January 21st if they would be elected.

I am sure they will try to stop it even if Obama wins. They can't stop hating on GLBT folk to save their lives or party.

illegal aliens need to be removed no matter what.all this will do is have those who want to stay say they are a gay couple.

all know illegal aliens and those who support them will say and do anything to stay so they can steal off citizens.

illegal aliens are the enemy of working class citizens.

My dad, my gay dad, married a woman so she would not be deported, after he divorced my mother who he married because he was confused about who he was thanks to bigots.

Wouldn't it make more sense for straight folks to just marry another straight person?

They do that NOW.

Then their partner can be deported with them, that would be a big sign of devotion.

all do it so there is no reason to give special treatment to those who are gay or saying they are gay.

so all who see illegal aliens as criminals are bigots?

being gay should not get special treatment, that alone is bigoted

and i am sure libs like always who are not honest with anything will try and twist words.

You're the one who made the claim that people will say they are "Gay" in order to stay here.....I'm telling you that one doesn't need to claim to be "GAY" because Straights will do it for illegals as well!!!

Got it!

from what i see all who support and those who are illegal aliens will say and do anything. the only thing neither will do is obey our laws.

now i see why the 2 was placed together on a bill not too long ago.

claiming to be gay may just give them the extra boost as a protected group.

Gay,straight,bi...does not matter,if illegal then detain and deport!
Given enough time Obama will just pass one of his executive orders and invite all illegals to come in to America and be free of worry of deportion and give them preference over real Americans!
Obama is out of control!

It'simply about treating ALL families as equal.

If you want the government NOT to take marital status into consideration in immigration issues, then you should be protesting that they have always done it for straight folks, not protesting that now gay couples will be treated the same way under the law.

I think what most folks are forgetting (if they ever knew) is that people have ALWAYS been able to sponsor relatives into the country. It happens every day.

It's not always about illegal immigration, or overstaying a visa.

Now, gay Americans will have the SAME right to sponsor their family, in the same way that straigth folks do.

doesn't sponsorship also mean fully support them? if not it should being whoever wants them here needs to step up and make sure they are never a burden of anyone else.

like those who have anchor babies yet others are forced to support for 18 years and longer.
