Senate Panel Advances Immigration Overhaul; Same-Sex Marriage Protection Removed

The bipartisan measure providing a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants has moved a step closer to approval. On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee advanced its comprehensive immigration reform bill in a 13-to-5 vote. Under pressure from Republicans and some members of their own party, Democrats removed an amendment that would have recognized immigrant couples in same-sex marriages. The full Senate could begin debate on the bill next month

Good it had no business in an illegal immigration bill. I find it hard to believe that anything about sex or marriage would reach a federal forum. I think it's a states rights issue.

It would have then been a short jump to use the equal protection clause to make federal law open to all. They can't force their crap any other way.

Advances to what? The Senate floor. It will be debated, and likely passed. Then it will go to the House where it will be debated, and rejected. Unless the border is closed first the House will not support the bill. That doesn't mean almost closed, or pretty much closed, that means closed. With border patrol agents with loaded guns that can keep any more illegal aliens from coming in, then talk about a path to citizenship. The current Administration will never arm the border patrol.

The Senate never tried to “sneak in a federal approval for same sex marriage”. The attempt was to equal the playing field.

Since same-sex marriage is NOT federally recognized, the attempt was to recognized people of same-sex in committed relationships the opportunity to stay together. There are many American Citizens that are in committed relationships and cannot sponsor the most important person in their life to stay with him/her in the US.

Unfortunately, people in same-sex relationships who cannot marry, or can but does not qualify for immigration (because not recognized federally) have found themselves in difficult situations. Some have had to keep their partners in the US undocumented, and some Americans have had to leave the USA to be with the person they love the most. American Citizens has have had to choose between their countries and the most important person in their lives.

The Amendment was going to recognize that all Americans had the right to happiness in their lives – it was really not about legalizing same-sex marriage, but allowing everyone the same opportunities.

Even if DOMA is overturned by the Supreme Court, the application to Legal Immigration may be valid only in the stats that recognize same-sex marriage, and those applying may be forced to lvie only in States where same-sex marriage is legal.

Yes, but they were trying to pull a national deal that would include the states they will never get.

It had nothing to do with including other States, but ensuring that all folks have an equal opportunity. They Amendment would have ensured that without taking into account same-sex-marriage, Americans in same-sex relationships can sponsor the person that they share their lives with to live with them in the USA.

Many European countries, even before same sex marriage, were friendly to people and relationships, and their democracies respected human rights.

Trying to force the issue will never work. People are going to do and think what they believe. Gays are always trying to stick their crap into everything. They should have stuck their crap in the gun control issue.

Homosexuality is a condition and a does not have to include sexual conduct with the same sex. That is a behavior and behaviors can be controled. Just because someone is born gay does not mean they have to sin. The could actually live their life in celebacy..........but so could unmarried folks that hook up for a fling, bot are sin.

According to trible ritual, married couples are only to have sex for the purpose of bringing children into the world. Trible thumpers who have sex for 'recreation' are sinners. They could actually live their lives in celebacy.
