    we'll probably go there to get married.  

    We're itching to get it done...so unless we see marriage restored soon in CA, we'll probably get hitched it in Nyack, NY this fall.

      I am aware that the ICE recently granted a green card interview to a same-sex couple. This is a step further in the process than anyone has ever gotten.

      And the DHS abandoned the deportation orders for a couple in NJ recently and "depriortized" his case.

      My sense is the avenue may be more welcoming than the news is reporting because the admin is not wanting to spark news by reporting any wholesale policy changes.

      But it might be worth a try.

      Is the LGBT community inclusive enough to embrace the glitter-dispersal impaired? Discuss.

        ..do you have the link on the article granting a green-card interview to a same sex couple?  I'd like to put that in my file, and send to my lawyer. Thanks.

        We're actually in pretty decent shape right now (relatively speaking).  My fiance is legally here on a student visa, and is in the process of applying for a work visa through his employer-to-be.  So we're not in an emergency situation, and hopefully DOMA comes crashing down soon and we can then move along to permanent resident status based on marriage.

      their LGBT immigration policy is looking a lot to me like: "Squeaky wheels get greased."
