With the Supreme Court's DOMA decision in US v. Windsor hot off the press yesterday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano issued this welcome statement:

“I applaud today’s Supreme Court decision in United States v. Windsor holding that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. This discriminatory law denied thousands of legally married same-sex couples many important federal benefits, including immigration benefits.  I am pleased the Court agreed with the Administration’s position that DOMA’s restrictions violate the Constitution. Working with our federal partners, including the Department of Justice, we will implement today's decision so that all married couples will be treated equally and fairly in the administration of our immigration laws."

The advocacy group Immigration Equality has posted great information already on how this decision will impact immigration benefits for same-sex couples.  Click here for more!

  1. You can't take guarantee that if the lawyer is certified then he must be an expert. Generally most of the attorneys give fake hope even they know they're gonna lose the case. So we should choose our attorney wisely.

  9. As far as federal and immigration benefits, I think this decision has been long in coming and has been welcomed by a lot of people, especially by same-sex couples that have been married for years but haven't been able to receive the same benefits heterosexual couples receive. It's a good step in the right direction!

  21. I have a friend that is trying to become an American citizen. He has a had a really hard time going through the paper work and tests. He has a really good lawyer to help him but sometimes there is only so much a lawyer can do. I hope that he gets his citizenship because he's more American than half of the Americans in this country. http://www.honoluluimmigration.net/contact
