News that the Justice Department is delaying cases involving married same-sex couples in anticipation of the repeal of Defense of Marriage Act -- coming just after the President's decision to stop deporting young illegal immigrants -- makes "stalling while awaiting some other branch of the federal government" seem like the hot immigration policy strategy of the week.
Now Obama Is Delaying Immigration Enforcement Against Same-Sex Couples - Politics - The Atlantic Wire

Either Obama is getting horrible advice from someone in his camp or his true poll numbers are beginning to look really dismal.

I actually think that immigration benefits should be extended to same-sex partners same as for married couples, starting immediately...though people who have been in violation of existing laws still need to pay the associated costs/penalties associated with violating immigration laws.

Basically starting now, you're good...but that doesn't mean we're going to forgive past lawbreaking.

So, as I understand this, heterosexuals no longer have equal protection under the law with the Obama self-made congressional bypass of an immigration policy.
