US immigration chief: Same-sex ties are family ties

Same-sex couples will be considered “family relationships” in immigration proceedings, according to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, a move that could help stem the deportation of those in gay or lesbian binational relationships.

Close family ties to the United States are a factor considered by authorities in deportation cases, and gay and lesbian advocates have long argued for same-sex couples to have the same immigration rights as opposite-sex couples.

“In an effort to make clear the definition of the phrase ‘family relationships,’ I have directed ICE to disseminate written guidance to the field that the interpretation of the phrase ‘family relationships’ includes long-term, same-sex partners,” Napolitano said in a letter.

If anyone knows about the “same sex” thing it will be Napolitano.

a move that could help stem the deportation of those in gay or lesbian binational relationships.

This could eventually stem ALL deportations. It is backdoor amnesty, pardon the pun. It effectively puts the legal process of deportation in jeopardy.

How? Napolitano's plan opens the door for any household (of any size) of illegal aliens at risk of deportation to claim the homosexual waiver.

And like all waivers, there will be many times more claimants than expected that take it.

As it was in the Days of Lot, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man:

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2017:28-30&version=KJV

Luke 17:28-30

King James Version (KJV)

28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis+19:5&version=KJV

Genesis 19:5

King James Version (KJV)

5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him,
Where are the men which came in to thee this night?
bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

They've GOT to ram all these regulations thru before January, on the conviction that once a federal reg is passed, it will NEVER be repealed. It's the Bush Doctrine, left over from when that Idiot didn't take apart Clinton's little setup, and didn't prosecute the Arkansas Mafia.

I don't expect Romney to do jack in that direction, either. He will "study" it, and meanwhile, the Fairy Queens will destroy the military, and blame "homophobia" for the collapse of recruiting. (No one will suggest giving the peter puffers 90 days to bail with a general under honorable, before ANY homosex buys them 20 years in Leavenworth.) Or do we simply let all the 18 year old poofters, all 1%, become our only source for soldiers and sailors?

The military has had a whole bigger list of problems before the whole homosexual in the military issue came along. You had incomplete wars, that are going to wreak havoc on a survivor’s mind to see your buddies get shot up and ripped apart, then see their best efforts wasted as the war is left behind(PTSD and survivor’s guilt). Who wants to fight a war where it seems your pals get killed just to lose the war?
