The Asian Pacific American Legal Center of Southern California (APALC) called for an end to immigration discrimination against same-sex binational couples today in a detailed report, “A Devastating Wait: Family Unity and the Immigration Backlogs.” The 40-page report calls for Congress to pass the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA, H.R. 2221; S. 1328), a bill that would allow gay and lesbian US citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their same-sex partners for immigration to the US. It also calls for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which it describes as “an obvious and necessary step to ending federal discrimination against gay and lesbian couples.” The full report is available online at:
