Illegal Homosexual Immigrants Could Skate Deportation

This is one of those “special” rights I’ve been talking about for homosexuals. According to the latest on the immigration front, if a foreigner has had a long standing same-sex relationship with a U.S. citizen it could help them stay clear of being deported.

News Max reports,

Binational gay couples are eligible for consideration under a federal program designed to focus resources away from low-priority deportation cases and let officials spend more time tracking down convicted criminals, said Marsha Catron, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security.

However, the Obama administration will not automatically shelve deportation cases or process green card applications involving foreign citizens married to same-sex American partners.

Catron said her agency will continue to comply with a 1996 law that prohibits the government from recognizing same-sex relationships, even as Homeland Security takes these relationships into consideration when evaluating possible deportation.

The Obama administration last year said it considers the 1996 law unconstitutional and would no longer defend it in court.

Isn’t that nice? Now it’s not just those “under 30” as Obama claimed. Homosexual relationships are now a factor in whether or not the Obama administration will enforce the law.

Of course immigrant advocates applauded the move. “It is significant to me because it is expressly inclusive of LGBT families,” said Lavi Soloway, an immigration attorney who represents a number of same-sex couples in deportation proceedings. However, “as long as it’s not in writing it doesn’t mean that much for an individual in deportation.”

So far nothing has been placed in writing by the Department of Homeland Security. In fact, the statement of Barack Obama in the Rose Garden, concerning his new policy on immigration, has not officially been put into an Executive Order, though many people have referred to it as such.

So I guess we’ll be hearing about illegal transgendered people next being allowed to stay because of a long term relationship with a legal U.S. citizen. Will it ever end?
