The U.S. government has awarded permanent residency to the gay Mexican husband of a Coral Gables man, nearly two years after they wed in Washington, D.C, and seven months after the U.S. Supreme Court abolished a portion of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
Im very excited and very relieved, said Daniel Zavala, 28, who applied for a green card shortly after he and Yohandel Ruiz, a Cuban-born American citizen, married May 1, 2012. We feel like we finished the process and got what were looking for. Were going on with our lives as a regular couple.
The couple had met in South Beach while Zavala visited on a tourist visa. Seven months after their marriage, Ruiz received a letter from the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services denying Zavala a green card. Immigration wrote that it could not recognize the marriage because of DOMA.
Zavala and Ruiz appealed the decision in January 2013, according to immigration attorney Lavi Soloway, who with law partner Noemi Masliah heads The DOMA Project: Binational Couples Winning Equality.
On June 26, the Supreme Court tossed the portion of DOMA that prohibited the federal government from recognizing legally married same-sex couples.

Other than the right to pay taxes.
Ya don't say.
We should not break up two (or more) people who love each other.
Give sex a chance.
Sheesh, are they twins?
How nice to know. As if America hasn’t already devolved into a dark, deviant moral cesspit, we’re now going the extra mile to “import” more degeneracy.
Never would have imagined it a few short years ago, but the rate things are going, America might very well be a force of poison in the world in short order. The opposite of everything we once represented and championed. A sick and evil country.
I have a friend who is a legal immigrant from Mexico, who when he went to visit his parents met and married he says his “dream girl”.
He has his own business, own home, virtually zero debit and he has been trying for three years to bring his bride to this country.....it’s costing him a bundle for all the paper work and lawyers.
This is crapola.
Dear Lord, I am so sick of the gay stuff-non stop 24/7!
I can tolerate sinful people (since we all are), BUT it’s out of hand that this is constantly in our faces in the MSM and “Entertainment” Media!!
Send both of these dung punchers to Mexico!
You can see the demonic influence in their eyes
Yes! The process is abusive and expensive to lawful residents who marry citizens.
The immi nazis even have rules againt using electronic devices while enduring the interminable waiting room waits.
The system is so broken I’m almost ready accept disbanding it, and letting all comers enter and stay.
