Napolitano Comments on DOMA

Rate this Entry

Blogging in a cab on the way to the AILA meeting but here is the quote:



“I applaud today’s Supreme Court decision in United States v. Windsor holding that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. This discriminatory law denied thousands of legally married same-sex couples many important federal benefits, including immigration benefits. I am pleased the Court agreed with the Administration’s position that DOMA’s restrictions violate the Constitution. Working with our federal partners, including the Department of Justice, we will implement today's decision so that all married couples will be treated equally and fairly in the administration of our immigration laws."

    As per my earlier post, and as verified by today's cloture vote, unfortunately, the CIR bill will in all likelihood have only 67 votes. This is because Grassley and Sessions (not to forget Vitter et al) have decided not to allow any Republicans to get their amendments adopted and thus not join the supporters of CIR in approaching the 75 vote mark, which was within grasp. What a pair shameless scoundrels!
