...Or maybe not so good news

Some cold water on our faces regarding the break for binational couples. Metroweekly tells us the "abeyance" that might have protected them indefinitely may last no longer than a week.
Despite statements from leading organizations – most prominently, Immigration Equality – suggesting that the cases would be held in abeyance until DOMA's constitutionality is settled, a DHS official told Metro Weekly on Monday night that the abeyance could last for as little as a week....

"The DHS official tells Metro Weekly today, however, "Suspending all cases implicating DOMA until there is final judicial resolution on DOMA's constitutionality would run contrary to our obligation and to the AG's letter and therefore DHS cannot and will not do that."
