Britta and Carla Fight Deportation, As Their Case Progresses in New York Immigration Court

Britta and Carla were married in 2009, but they are still fighting deportation. One solution for lesbian and gay binational couples would be passage of immigration reform that included a provision for foreign partners. However, couples like Britta and Carla who are legally married should have their marriage recognized by Citizenship and Immigration Services.  That does not require reform of existing immigration law, because we already have a provision by which American citizens can sponsor their foreign spouses. When DOMA is repealed or struck down as unconstitutional the last obstacle for married lesbian and gay binational couples will have been removed.  For this reason, the fight against DOMA and the campaign to STOP THE DEPORTATIONS is so important.
