Obama Administration Seeking to Destroy Another Gay Couple Through Deportation
NBC news reports that the Obama administration is unwilling to recognize the validity of the marriage of Brian Willingham and Alfonso Garcia, by continuing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
The couple has been together for ten years, marrying last August in the State of New York where same sex marriages are legally recognized. Apparently, they aren't recognized in the White House.
A routine traffic stop has resulted in the institution of removal proceedings against Alfonso. An immigration court hearing is scheduled this afternoon in San Francisco.
Now that this case is receiving press coverage I'm sure that the administration will make Alfonso one of the lucky 1%ers to qualify for a favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion.
Nothing like bad press in an election year.
