The Uniting American Families Act, formerly the Permanent Partner Immigration Act, will be reintroduced in the House later today. The bill would allow binational same-sex couples to live together in the US.
This is a pretty important issue to me, personally, because my parents are a binational couple who live here in the US. My entire life wouldn't have been possible without my parents having that right, and there are so many children being raised by same-sex parents who shouldn't be separated from one of them because of immigration.
More information on the bill, the press conferences, the statements of House members, and the cosponsors as I get it.
I'm also kind of anxious to hear what the rabid right thinks of this one. There is absolutely no possible way to even spin this as special rights (at least for a sane mind), and keeping couples and families separated because of something as artificial as national borders is just kinda mean-spirited. I fully expect the "this recognizes homosexual couples" thing, but they can get creative. Anyone want to venture a prediction?
