"To love could be criminal again" is indeed important, but I fail to see the connection the GLBT community. It seems like a last-ditch effort to appeal to a community that "maybe, might, perhaps" champion equal rights for illegal immigrants.

It would be terrible for a "bi-national" couple to be persecuted, but the issue is neither gay nor straight; it applies to everyone. Perhaps the author ought to have touched on race, as it may be a factor in police determining who is and isn't a "bi-national" couple.
