Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Chris Geidner. This is a very must needed addition to immigration reform. I have contacted Senator Leahy and both my Senators Portman(R) and Brown(D) about this but have received no response as yet. Read and noted.

Once immigration reform is active I suppose this topic will also be included and approved

I'm all for it. The H.R.C. and the other groups have my full support in this, and other, issue(s) of gender equality.

If same sex marriage is legal in San Francisco, then the same laws should apply as to every other married couple.

Nineteen years together, and the issue of citizenship never came up? I absolutely feel for these men, I just don't understand the mentality.
