GREEN CARD: Post-‎DOMA‬ Reality for ‪LGBT‬ Family in Boulder, ‎Colorado,‬ Hits Home When the Mail is Delivered


On July 15, 2013, Cathy Davis received her issued green card in the mail. Cathy and Catriona are the first same-sex couple in the U.S. to receive a marriage-based green card after their immigration interview in January.  On July 3, 2013, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a green card for Cathy Davis based on her marriage to Catriona Dowling, making Cathy the first immigrant to become a permanent resident in the U.S. through marriage to her same-sex spouse.

This is what equality looks like.
