I really hope this gets through. I’m in a binational relationship with an American and for various reasons it is nearly impossible for him to settle over here permanently. If this goes through then it becomes a real possibility that he and I can make our lives together as a couple as we want to just like a heterosexual couple can.
Sadly I think this may have to be dropped to get immigration reform through. McCain has already signalled his opposition and I can’t see the Blue Dog Democrats voting for this in the Senate especially as it’s election year next year and many of them are up.
