Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Congressional Candidate's Partner Faces Deportation

Rate this Entry

Mike Williams, a Candidate for Congress in Connecticut's 5th Congressional district, is at risk of losing his spouse, Bart Hoedemaker, to deportation.  Bart is Dutch, and is in the United States legally, but his job as a horse trainer ends in September.  Once his employment terminates, so does his immigration status, and he must depart the United States, or he will become subject to the institution of deportation proceedings if he doesn't leave the country.  The couple married in Connecticut, but unfortunately, from an immigration perspective the marriage still isn't worth the paper it is written on.


This is just one more example that despite the Obama administration's statements to the contrary, bi-national couples are excluded from applying for immigration benefits as a result of the restrictions set forth in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
