Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), along with 83 other members of Congress, led a push this week to keep lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) family members from being deported.

In a letter to Homeland Security sent on Tuesday, July 31, the Democratic members pleaded for recognition, in writing, that same-sex partners should be considered as a discretionary factor in deciding deportation cases.

This will be the second attempt at persuading Secretary Napolitano to put the Obama Administration and Department of Homeland Security’s 2011 announcement, into writing.

The announcement in August, from high-ranking DHS and White House officials stated,...

Since when should someone's sexual orientation determine whether or not they are to be deported?

Can you imagine the can of worms this would open up?

Immigration Lawyer: Ok Mr. Perez, your deportation hearing is set for tomorrow, you entered the country illegally so we really have no case....unless you happen to be gay?

Perez: Noo...No...gay.. I like senoritas...

Immigration Lawyer: Perhaps you don't understand, if you say you're gay. You won't get deported. So I'll as again. Are you gay?

Perez: Huh? Ohhhhh, I get it! Si Senior, I'm gay! gay! gay!

Heterosexual relationship? There's the bus. Homosexual relationship? Well, why didn't you say so! Stay right there, we'll bring drinks over!

Ahh, yes, gays only want equality...

I think the point is that since a Court considers marriage to a U.S. citizen as a factor in deportation proceedings, Pelosi wants the Court to also take into account that they are in a queer relationship.

Probably half the people in San Fran who vote for Pelosi are gay or illegal or both, when you think of that it isn’t surprising that Nancy would stand up for them.

Nancy should have stayed in Baltimore working on the Block as a B-girl, it was more suited to her intelligence and her morals.

There is already a huge cottage industry on arranged sham heterosexual marriages to avoid deportation and false claims for residency and citizenship. A friend of mine married a wife from Chile and they gave them the third degree when they applied for a resident permit for her to move to the U.S., even though they had three kids and a marriage certificate to prove legitimacy at the time.

This included separate questioning on trivia such as "what color are the sheets on your bed now?" I'm not even sure I could answer that question.

Apparently, SanFranNan thinks a simple declaration that "I'm a bum chum of xyz" should mean an automatic resident permit.

LOL! You just reminded me of the hilarious scene in the movie The Terminal where Tom Hanks encounters the balding immigration inspector.

Where one step might be prudent, the left always takes five or six and then is shocked at the inevitable backlash.

I think the point that one needs to address is that hetero couples in a committed relationship have the option of marriage to avoid deportation, while homo couples don’t.

Do you honestly think it has?

Nancy is busy being Nancy.

Next she’ll petition to make sure water remains wet, against those vile Conservatives who want to make it dry.

Who cares if there has never been a single mention of making water dry in the last 200+ years.

Some of Nancy’s followers will gasp, and tell their friends the Conservertaives want to make water dry. Oh NOOOOOOOOOOO...

"what color are the sheets on your bed now?" I'm not even sure I could answer that question.

I'll give it a shot.

Your sheets are a lovely shade of lavender.

I’d like to see her by herself, on a dark street with some of these pervs. Her eyes would never close—ike a deer in the headlights.

She has no more compassion for ordinary citizens then the rest of the donks.
Pathetic mindless dimwad. Yuk!

Don’t worry, Nancy. In my America, we will base their right to be here on whether they came here legally or not. The rest will not matter.

I know a couple in the DC area who "married" in one of the states that allow homosexuals to marry one another.

One of the two is a foreign national and has worked here for years and has been waiting his turn in the legal immigration line.

I'd guess Pelosi and the rest apparently want to have those cases treated "equally" with those of legal heterosexual marriages.

They also see it as a way to bring in more foreigners.

As you know, if a an American marries a foreigner that foreigner is allowed to live in the United States. The dems want that to be for men and men marriages too and lesbians.

WHAT??? So if a person is going to be deported, if they are gay that will save them from being deported? What the hell kind of sense does that make?
