Immigration reform: don't count on inclusion

The Obama Administration really REALLY wants immigration reform Surprisingly, some religious conservatives do too--for the right reasons. An unlikely alliance that can resolve a clearly untenable situation for the common good.

Of course,
the whole effort could implode if the final legislation extended family reunification provisions to same-sex couples where one spouse did not have legal status. For evangelicals, he said, “That would be a deal-breaker.”

We've talked before about entering the US while gay. There are many devoted gay couples who are either living separated lives, or obligatory expatriates. Deportation and separation. clarknt67 takes it on at Daily Kos.

Do you think the Fierce Advocates will throw Teh Gay overboard to get an immigration bill passed?

I do. I hope I'm wrong.
