Despite Prosecutorial Discretion Policy, Same Sex Spouses of US Citizens Still Facing Deportation

Rating: 2 votes, 1.00 average.

These should be the easy cases to take out of the deportation queue (assuming there are no criminal issues). Congress still has not righted this wrong and we're still waiting on the courts to declare the offensive Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. In the meantime, the White House still is preventing spouses from getting green cards. They do have the option of at least stopping deportation proceedings in all these cases under the new prosecutorial discretion policy. So why is this still happening?


The Denver Post reports on one such couple facing removal.

    Gallup's latest immigration poll out:

    "Just 6% are dissatisfied and want the level of immigration increased, unchanged from 2008 but slightly higher than in previous years."
