Federal rights, benefits and privileges, along with federal recognition of one's legal marriage SHOULD happen regardless of whether a State actually recognizes the marriage because sometimes a couple has to move for whatever reason and they should NOT become UNMARRIED just because of it......at the federal or state level!!!

This Immigration Service ruling could be the big breakthrough that automatically invalidates all state-level anti-gay constitutonal amendments and hate laws

I suspect the Immigration Service lacks authority overturn state laws.

Only the courts can do that.

Earth to Brian, were you asleep when the US Supreme Court ruled on Windsor v United States? Immigration is a federal agency.

Do try to keep up.

You do realize that with the recent Supreme Court ruling, the federal government, including the INS, must now recognize the legal marriages of all Americans, don't you? They are merely setting up the rules to allow that to happen. Sorry.

Both are at the federal level, and both must comply with federal law. After Windsor v United States that means the federal government acknowledges same sex marriages performed in jurisdictions that allow such unions.

Yes dear, the laws are written by Congress, the rules designed to carry out such laws are written by the agencies that those laws were written for. Understand now?

Windsor v United States applies to inheritance and tax law, not immigration law. Congress writes immigration law, they may set quotas or ban whoever they please. The case cited above was decided by government concession.

This is why we must vote to keep marriage one man and one woman.

Sorry Charlie, try again. Windsor establishes that the federal government recognizes same sex marriages performed in states that allow them. There has additionally been a federal court ruling in Ohio holding that the state must recognize the same sex marriage of a couple who married in Maryland. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/gay-marria...

I am starting to think that you lack basic reading comprehension skills. You have certainly misinterpreted a myriad of legal decisions and legal concepts.

Sorry Brian, but you'd be wrong......Windsor vs United States has to do with the Section 3 of DOMA and why it was UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!

You might want to read the ruling to help educate yourself on why Section 3 is no longer in place!!!
