Americans themselves don't seem to care. Obama is leading in the polls and very well will be re-elected. It's all very depressing at the moment. I hope things change soon.

Are you claiming that if an illegal marries a Citizen, then that illegal automatically becomes legal?

You have no clue as to how it works.

Even under DOMA if a foreigner and a Citizen are married, it all depends on the status of the foreigner. Was the foreigner an immigrant? (not illegal); was the foreigner on non-immigrant status and applied for change of status? (not illegal); was the foreigner an illegal to begin with? (illegal whether married to Citizen or not)

The administration is killing two birds with one stone -- they're going for the gay vote and the illegal alien vote.

Behind Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the lawmakers want the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to state explicitly that LGBT "family ties" will be deemed "a positive factor" discouraging deportation as DHS agents gauge whether to pursue cases."


They go on to say...........


"It would be beyond senseless," they added, "to see LGBT persons with family ties here in the United States deported simply because the affected persons, their attorneys, and/or ICE officials were unaware of DHS’s verbal policy."


I'm sure it would also be "senseless" according to these idiots to deport anyone because they are here ILLEGAL in the first place.


Pelosi, Dems push Homeland Security for clarity on LGBT deportations - The Hill - covering Congress, Politics, Political Campaigns and Capitol Hill | TheHill.com

And this is based on what? Inadequate verbal policy??

Quote:
"Since our last letter to you, there have been several key developments which show that the verbal policy you articulated to protect LGBT families in and of itself remains inadequate,"
So all the Dems have to do is to verbally express something and it becomes "policy"?? What's next creating laws verbally? "It's a law now, because I said so." No wonder ICE agents are so confused if they are getting their "orders" verbally.

Also the Hispanic-American vote. Blood is thicker than water I guess.

As you can see, there are posters here that really don't know how the process works.

Obviously the administration is pretty much accepting anything as a good reason for the illegal to stay here. If the illegal hasn't murdered anyone or been a serial rapist - then the administration says they aren't serious criminals and won't be deported. If they have close friends here, they won't be deported, if they are age 16 to 30, they shouldn't be deported. If they are in a homosexual or hetereosexual relationship, they won't be deported, if they aren't in a relationship but have given birth here or smuggled their children over here, they won't be deported.

Except under very rare circumstances, yes, if an American marries a foreigner, the foreigner automatically gets a 2 year conditional spousal green card, which can be reapplied for after 2 years and becomes permanent.

The immigrant (legal or illegal) doesn't get automatic anything. The foreigner must file for an Adjustment of Status, usually to an conditional immigrant visa. This can be denied just as easily as it can be approved. I like how you changed it from illegals to foreigners and then used except under very rare circumstances. CYOA Whats rare is for an illegal to be granted the conditional visa for marrying a citizen.
