so is this an attempt to talk about binational couples, or does everyone just want to make juvenile quips about "bending over backwards".

i think the mayor raises a good question, one that has come up quite a bit.

do spouses in states that allow gay marriage get to legalize their partner if they are not citizens? can gay couples legalize a spouse they married in a country that allows gay marraige?

sadly, this might not occur until gay marriage is federally recognized.

its sad that many binational couples have to jump hurdles others dont.

WOW, how pathetic are you? All of a sudden you are accusing this guy of being bi-sexual and that the only reason he wants to be with him is to bring his family and kids across the border??? It's people like you that are hurting your own cause. Leave the guy alone. He's gay, big deal. You don't have to talk about "bending over backwards" to try and make a point.

WOW how pathetic are your comprehension skills?

I stated:

HE MIGHT BE, key word: MIGHT as in: may be, could be, etc. If I had stated: HE IS then that would be an accusation. That being said, I don't need your permission to make a statement and you need to stick to the topic of the thread.

more paranoid, speculation.

you come up with some wierd fantasies...


because guess what, these people just MIGHT be in LOVE

the story says that the guy moved to mx with his partner.
if it wasnt love do you think he would do that? or did the illegal just bamboozle him? again. in your twisted mind.

talk about reading comprehension

I think it's rather touching. One doesn't just up and move to a foreign country to be with someone to get sex...well, I'm a romantic these days and I can totally understand why he'd do it, as I'm in a similar situation (only I'm not gay, so at least I've got the chance to marry my sweetie if I so decide). I would go with my SO if he was forced to return to Mexico.

talk about reading comprehension
I never questioned the mayors' lust for his boyfriend, it's obvious. The question I posed is whether the illegal alien gives a rats' ass about him or is he simply using him to pay for and obtain his US citizenship and possible future chain migration?

You can stop pretending that illegal aliens don't use Americans for the sole purpose of gaining US citizenship, early and often. Nobody is buying your tired line of turn the tables on the messenger BS .

As for your comment about reading comprehension, mine is working just fine, apparently yours isn't.

Again, the boyfriend was in the US ILLEGALLY for 5 years and now that he's got a rich politically connected lover and wallah, all of a sudden citizenship is a pressing issue.

Whether you like it or not, this story reeks of the typical illegal alien scam. I'm sure gays are not immune to this issue.

It's something completely different and pernicious and vile to seek out a U.S. citizen and run a scam by them and entice them into marrying them and not only abandoning and emotionally abusing them, but falsely accusing them of a heinous act. They allege the U.S. Citizen abused them somehow and file paperwork with (the U.S. government) … and they're here to stay," said Sampson. "They have an ace-high flush."

Lust? you cant even say LOVE? wow.

obviously there is love otherwise this relationship would have ended.

but this brings up the issue about people who are here legally and by expiration of a VISA find themselves in the "illegal" category.

opposite sex relationships have an option to prevent seperation of loving couples.

same sex relationships dont.

but i doubt you can think that deeply about an issue you see as motivated by LUST

this will become a federal issue. once the gay marriage issue makes it to the federal level.

so VOILA to you to sister!

i cant imagine having such negativity and pessimism in my daily thoughts and actions...

Gays can only lust, and illegals can only scam, to some people.
