CNN reviews immigration situation for gay couples
Whatever state a gay couple lives in (allowing marriage or not), federal immigration law does not allow same-sex marriage the “privilege” of bringing a same-sex couple alien into the country. A New York congressman wants to change that. On the other hand, “conservatives” like Maggie Gallagher insist that “immigration is a privilege”, not a right and a lot of people would like to come into the country in a variety of domestic situations.
The argument would seem to resemble that regarding the lack of survivorship social security benefits for gay partners.
