DENIED: Obama Admin Immigration Decision Puts Couples in Limbo

By Andrew Harmon, by the advocate

The Advocate has learned of a high-level meeting with LGBT groups where the administration rejected a hold on deciding gay couples’ green card petitions.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Obama administration is standing firm against calls by LGBT rights groups and lawmakers to put a blanket hold on deciding green card petitions from married, binational gay couples. Instead, those petitions in all likelihood will continue to be rejected, denying much-needed stability for gay families stuck in the nation’s immigration system. While the administration has taken affirmative steps in recent months to ensure that foreign nationals married to American spouses of the same sex are spared from actual deportation, officials told LGBT rights groups in a recent, high-level meeting that they will not hold such marriage-based green card petitions in abeyance. The decision is being criticized by some advocates as a campaign-year calculation based on politics, not on sound legal analysis. A year ago today, Atty. Gen. Eric Holder announced that the Obama administration would not defend a section of the Defense of Marriage Act that bars gay married couples from full federal rights and responsibilities of civil marriage. Those rights include the ability to sponsor a foreign spouse for permanent residency in the United States.
The administration has since pledged to continue enforcing the law, though it has declined to defend DOMA in multiple lawsuits and has worked around some of the 1996 law’s more severe consequences. President Obama issued a 2010 memo mandating hospital visitation rights for LGBT partners and spouses, for example, while the Justice Department dropped its opposition last year against joint bankruptcy filings by gay couples. But providing broad immigration relief to gay binational couples as DOMA’s constitutionality is decided appears to be a bridge too far at this point.The meeting between LGBT advocates and government officials occurred January 30 at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. and was attended by representatives of Lambda Legal, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the Human Rights Campaign, Immigration Equality, and Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, The Advocate has learned. The administration in turn sent a contingent of senior officials from the White House, DOJ, and the Department of Homeland Security. According to multiple sources, those in attendance included White House LGBT liaison Gautam Raghavan, White House associate counsel to the president Kathleen Hartnett, Tony West, the assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s civil division; and DHS executive secretary Philip McNamara, who last fall was appointed as an LGBT liaison to a Homeland Security working group reviewing the nation’s approximately 300,000 pending deportation cases.

I just wrote Catholic Charities
you should to write them and tell them how wrong they are about gay marriage and how the kids they say they want to help would get loving homes.

this is what i wrote
I’d like to know why your group and the right wing always use morals, and in your case always use kids that need loving homes pawns in your fight against gay marriage or full civil unions. I’m not sure if you know that there are 23 countries right now that offer full gay marriage, or full civil unions, or common law? Countries like Canada, Spain, Israel, a tiny country like Nepal. Are you telling me that the morals in those countries are less then here, or the kids don’t get loving homes from gay couples that want to adopt?
I’d love to get an answer
Thanks

LGBT advocates fight Catholic Charities’ threat to stop adoptions if civil unions are legalized

LGBT advocates fight Catholic Charities’ threat to stop adoptions if civil unions are legalized

By Melanie Asmar Denver west word blogs

​Gay advocacy group One Colorado has started an online petition to fight against what it calls “scare tactics” by Catholic Charities, whose reps testified at the Capitol last week that if lawmakers legalize civil unions, it may stop providing adoption and foster care services. Why? Because civil unions could lead to same-sex marriage, which Catholics oppose.
That was the word from Colleen Haggerty, who spoke on behalf of Catholic Charities and the Archdiocese of Denver. “We hold the institution of marriage and the family a sacred pillar of our faith,” she said, noting that Senate Bill 2, which would authorize any two unmarried adults — regardless of gender — to enter into a civil union, “undermines the privileged place of marriage.”
The bill, she said, “may unnecessarily jeopardize services to the children in the most need of our help” — kids requiring foster care and those up for adoption. “These are the very people who would be hurt,” she added.
Bill sponsor Senator Pat Steadman, a Denver Democrat, challenged Haggerty. “I don’t understand how this bill would impact you and in fact, I’m wondering if you’ve read the bill,” he said. “Because on page eighteen, it clearly states that, ‘This bill is not to be interpreted to require child placement agencies to place a child for adoption with a couple that has entered into a civil union.’ So I’m not understanding your objections.”
“I have read the bill, and I have it right here,” Haggerty said. “I believe I said that in other states that have this — this is setting a precedent…where civil unions lead to the recognition of same-sex marriage. Innate in our faith and the cornerstone of what the Catholic church believes is the institution of marriage is one man and one woman, so to recognize this in any other way would go against what we believe.”
“And for that you’d stop serving the vulnerable in our state?” Steadman asked.
“That’s not what I said,” Haggerty said.
Later, in response to a question, Steadman said, “The abandonment of a charitable mission because we have to be charitable to all is a rather disappointing position.”
One Colorado agrees. In an e-mail to supporters titled “Shocking,” director Brad Clark wrote, “You know what scares me the most? Catholic Charities is putting vulnerable children in the middle of this debate, and I don’t want thousands of kids to become collateral damage in the crossfire. That’s just not right.
“I hope you’ll help us send a message to Catholic Charities. A message of appreciation for the important work they do — and a request for that work to continue, even after all families are granted equal protection under the law.”

Judge Finds DOMA Unconstitutional

Judge Finds DOMA Unconstitutional

By Diane Anderson-Minshall advocate

Federal judge Jeffrey White, who was appointed during George W. Bush’s presidency, has ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. According to Think Progress, White, a judge in the U.S. District Court for Northern California, ruled in favor of Karen Golinski, an attorney and employee of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, saying that her rights had been violated under the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution when she was denied spousal benefits that heterosexual employees receive.

In 2009, Chief Judge Alex Kozinski had ruled in Golinski’s favor, saying that not providing those benefits violated the Ninth Circuit’s employment policies prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation, according to our earlier reports, but the U.S. Office of Personnel Management immediately announced that it would not comply with Kozinski’s ruling, arguing that DOMA excluded same-sex couples and it lacked the legal authority to extend those spousal benefits to Golinski, even though she and her wife were legally wed.

Today’s ruling is a victory for Lambda Legal, which represented Golinski, and other opponents of DOMA. According to Ginny LaRoe of The Recorder, who live-tweeted the trial today, White, yet another GOP appointee to vote in favor of gay rights — Judge Vaughn Walker, of Proposition 8 fame, was as well — said that DOMA should now be “subjected to heightened scrutiny. But it also fails even rational basis review.” It is also, as Think Progress notes, “a serious setback” for Republican leaders in Congress, who have taken over the defense of DOMA in lawsuits after Obama administration officials announced they would no longer make a case for it.

Paul Babeu’s Mexican Ex-Lover Says Sheriff’s Attorney Threatened Him With Deportation

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

THIS IS A MUST READ! SHOWS HOW THE REPUBLICANS LIE AND CHEAT, ARE GAY AND VOTE AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE! HIPPOCRATES!

Paul Babeu’s Mexican Ex-Lover Says Sheriff’s Attorney Threatened Him With Deportation

Phoenix new times
Monica Alonzo


Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu — who became the face of Arizona border security nationally after he started stridently opposing illegal immigration — threatened his Mexican ex-lover with deportation when the man refused to promise never to disclose their years-long relationship, the former boyfriend and his lawyer tell New Times.The latest of the alleged threats were made through Babeu’s personal attorney, who’s also running the sheriff’s campaign for Congress in District 4, the ex-lover says.He says lawyer Chris DeRose demanded he sign an agreement that he would never breathe a word about the affair. But Jose (New Times is withholding his last name because Babeu and his attorney have challenged his legal status) refused.The 34-year-old from central Mexico charges that the sheriff’s lawyer warned against mentioning the affair with Babeu. DeRose said gossip about Babeu would focus attention on Jose, attention that could result in his deportation, Jose says.
Melissa Weiss-Riner, Jose’s attorney, confirms her client’s account.
She says she spoke directly to the sheriff’s lawyer, DeRose, about the Babeu camp’s threats that Jose could be deported if he “revealed the relationship.” She says DeRose falsely claimed that Jose’s visa had expired.”Jose came to our firm because he felt he was being intimidated, and he was in fear for his life,” Weiss-Riner says. “He wanted his legal rights protected.”Babeu didn’t respond to requests for comment by publication time for this article, but his attorney, DeRose, says the dispute between Jose and the sheriff concerned Jose’s work on Babeu’s websites. He says Jose was a former volunteer who hacked into a campaign website.DeRose didn’t immediately address the other claims against him and the sheriff, except to say, “I never threatened to deport anybody” and that “[Babeu's] not threatening anybody.”Informed of the situation, Nancy-Jo Merritt, a longtime Phoenix immigration attorney, says such a threat would be indicative of an “atmosphere that’s been created politically in this state, so that if you get angry at someone who is Hispanic, you immediately jump down to the level of threatening to deport him.”If what [Babeu's attorney] says is correct [about Jose's being illegal], either the sheriff had a long relationship with someone he knew was undocumented, while all the time being Mr. Bluster about the border and using it for political gain,” or he threatened to deport someone he just broke up with, Merritt says.
“That’s just the worst kind of hypocrisy.”
She adds that federal immigration-enforcement agents have better things to do than “take care of Babeu’s boyfriends.”
Antonio Bustamante, a criminal defense attorney and immigration activist, tells New Times that if the allegations against Babeu are true, “To use a position of authority . . . and make legal threats opens a Pandora’s box of ethics issues for any law enforcement person or any elected person. In this case, he’s both.”
Jose says he met Babeu in October 2006 on gay.com, a dating website. What started with an online invitation from Babeu for the two to get together, he says, turned into not only a personal relationship but a professional one.
Jose says he created and maintained Babeu’s campaign websites, his Facebook page, and his Twitter account. Babeu didn’t pay him for his online services, he claims.
Jose says Babeu told him that he loved him and was with him exclusively. But Jose suspected Babeu was lying. The relationship soured, and Jose believes that Babeu sent DeRose after him. He says DeRose demanded the passwords to Babeu’s websites and social-media accounts. Jose says he complied but that Babeu and his attorney also wanted Jose to sign a document that would bind him legally to keep silent about the relationship.
Jose admits that he lashed out on news websites featuring stories about Babeu. He says he commented anonymously that the sheriff was not who people thought he was. He says he once wrote a comment on Chino Valley eNews that Babeu had an account on adam4adam.com, where gay men arrange sexual liaisons.
Jose shared text messages between him and Babeu with New Times. A September 4, 2011, text from the sheriff reads: “You can never have business after this and you will harm me and many others in the process . . . including yourself & your family.”
A couple of minutes later, Babeu followed with: “And you say you have loved me? Papi . . . this is no good.”
Jose responded: “Good threats. Wont work. Im already hurt me . . . and you didn’t care.”
They exchanged more texts on September 6.
Jose: “Dont threat me. Thats illegal. Im just speaking . . . true.”
Babeu: “You have crossed the line. Better get an attorney. You brother will also be contacted.”
The following day, on September 7, DeRose sent an e-mail directly to Jose ordering him to “cease and desist.”
DeRose wrote: “If you are serious about an amicable resolution to this, it is critical that no further offensive actions against my client be taken in the meantime. This should go without saying.”
Jose says that’s when he hired Weiss-Riner.

Some thing is really wrong here, Dog from Afghanistan to be reunited with soldier

Don’t get me wrong with this post but I love dogs and all animals, I’ve had dogs all my life, but, a person or group can bring a dog into this country and I can’t bring my husband into this country because I’m gay and legally married in Canada and the rest of the world, something is really wrong!

Marjie Mohtashemi, Eyewitness News
PORT JEFFERSON STATION, N.Y. (WABC) — A puppy who’s only ever known life in a war zone is getting a new home thanks to a Long Island charity.

The “Guardians of Rescue” flew the pup, named “Trigger”, from Afghanistan to JFK.

After Trigger was born last September 11th, he was taken under the wing of some American soldiers.

Insurgents recently captured Trigger’s sister and killed her.

So, the Guardians got Trigger out of danger.

He’s on his way to Washington State to be reunited with the soldier who’s adopted him.

Maryland Marriage Equality: House Of Delegates Passes Bill In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage

huff post politics

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The effort to legalize gay marriage has passed a long-standing hurdle in the Maryland House of Delegates.

The House voted 71-67 Friday to give gay couples the right to marry.

After a week of speculation on whether proponents would gather the votes needed, lawmakers debated it Thursday evening.

Several amendments to the bill were rejected. They included creating civil unions and allowing parents to opt out of education programs that address same-sex relationships.

The measure now heads to the state Senate where last year it easily cleared the 47-member body. The governor has said he would sign it.

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie has backed up his promise to reject a bill allowing same-sex marriages in New Jersey.

His veto came Friday, a day after the state Assembly passed the bill. The Senate approved it Monday.

The Republican governor returned the bill to the Legislature, saying he wants voters to decide whether New Jersey changes the definition of marriage Democratic lawmakers say it’s a civil rights issue that shouldn’t be put up for a public vote.

Lawmakers have until the end of the January 2014 legislative session to override the veto

Washington’s Governor Signs Gay Marriage Into Law

Washington’s Governor Signs Gay Marriage Into Law

Eric Randall 2:59 PM ET

Washington’s Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a gay marriage bill into law at a ceremony Monday, meaning same-sex couples will likely be able to get married there beginning June 7. “We’re here to make history,” she said at a signing event. Washington will now be the seventh state to have legalized gay marriage. Passage has been pretty smooth since the bill was introduced this month, and it has also yielded some rallying moments for the gay community, such as this video, which went viral, of State Rep. Maureen Walsh describing her emotional decision to vote in favor of the bill. Gregoire signed the bill to cheers and chants of “Chris, Chris, Chris!” (No not you, Chris Christie.)

NJ Senate OKs gay marriage bill in milestone vote

AP GEOFF MULVIHILL

TRENTON — New Jersey lawmakers gave their blessing to legalizing gay marriage for the first time Monday as the state Senate passed a bill that would allow nuptials for same-sex couples, despite Gov. Chris Christie’s insistence that he will veto such legislation.

The Senate’s 24-16 vote sends the bill to the Assembly, which is expected to pass it on Thursday.

Monday’s vote contrasts with the only other gay-marriage vote taken in the Legislature. In January 2010, gay marriage supporters thought they had built a narrow majority in the Senate, but senators began to defect, and the measure was defeated 20-14. Since then, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, a Democrat from West Deptford, has changed his position. He says he regrets abstaining two years ago and has made gay marriage recognition a top priority.

Six states and Washington, D.C., allow gay marriage, and Washington state will be added to that list when Gov. Christine Gregoire signs legislation legalizing same-sex marriage Monday.

Christie, a Republican, announced his veto intentions last month. He has said he does not believe marriage laws should be changed but does support New Jersey’s civil union law, which grants gay couples the legal protections of marriage.

Christie said he wants to put a change in the definition of marriage to a public vote.

But gay rights groups oppose a referendum. They see gay marriage as a civil rights matter and argue that it should not be up to the masses to protect the rights of a minority group. They also believe that a nasty campaign from social conservatives could erode the narrow majority of support that public polls show gay marriage has in New Jersey.

Gay rights groups are looking at two other avenues to make gay marriage reality in New Jersey. If Christie vetoes the measure, the Legislature would have until January 2014 to override it by getting two-thirds of the votes in each chamber. Advocates hope that with nearly two years, they can change enough votes to get the legislation adopted.

The other route is through the courts. Five years ago, New Jersey’s state Supreme Court ruled that gay couples should have the same rights as married heterosexual couples. In response, the Legislature created civil unions.

Gay rights advocates say that because the designation is hard to understand and still treats committed gays differently from married couples, the courts should eliminate civil unions and recognize gay marriage. A lawsuit seeking to do that is in the state court system.

NJ Senate OKs gay marriage bill in milestone vote

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Following the Senate, the Washington House voted today to approve marriage equality and send the bill to the governor, who has said she will sign it.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Christine Gregoire said Wednesday afternoon that she expects to sign the bill early next week, making Washington the seventh state plus the District of Columbia to legalize same-sex marriage.

A round of amendments from Republicans looking to stop the bill all failed. One of the failed amendments had tried to require a referendum before same-sex marriage could be approved.

Sen. Ed Murray, the gay man who has led much of the push for same-sex marriage in the state, said he and others are already gearing up for an expected referendum in November driven onto the ballot by signatures. He told TVW that first a “decline to sign” drive would try to combat the referendum and keep it off the ballot.

Republican Rep. Jay Rodne delivered an impassioned condemnation of the marriage equality bill, reminding the House that “what we do today can be undone by a future legislature” or at the ballot box.

Rodne called the bill “progressive re-engineering” and “an exercise of power that contravenes human nature.” He claimed it harms children and families.

“Children who are going to be brought into this world in the context of a same-sex marriage will have their relationship with one of their biological parents forever severed by force of law,” he lamented.

The Advocate

By Lucas Grindley

Democratic Rep. Jamie Pedersen, who is gay, is in a domestic partnership, which Washington approved under a law known as “anything but marriage.” He said his four children deserve to know “their daddy and their papa have made that kind of a lifelong commitment to each other.”

“Marriage is the word that society uses to describe a committed lifelong relationship,” said Pedersen.

Democratic Rep. Laurie Jinkins said the bill will strengthen families, especially hers. She and her partner of 23 years and their son help motivate her yes vote.

“All we do here — education, health care, jobs — we do all of those things for one simple beautiful reason,” she said. “It’s for our families.”

9TH CIRCUIT RULES PROP. 8 UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Advocate
By ANDREW HARMON

In a 2-1 vote, an appeals court panel rules that the 2008 ballot measure “serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples.”

A federal appeals court has ruled California’s Proposition 8 unconstitutional, upholding retired U.S. district judge Vaughn Walker’s 2010 decision in the high-profile case and setting up what could be an eventual showdown over the ballot measure at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Nearly three years after two gay couples filed suit when state officials denied them marriage licenses, a three-judge panel with the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled Tuesday that by stripping gay Californians of the right to marry, Prop. 8 violated the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Target of LGBT Bullying in Ohio School Tells His Story

For Zachary, it started in the 3rd grade.

First they said he looked and talked like a girl. Then they called him a “fag.” Finally, when he reached 8th grade, the bullying turned cruelly violent — and school administrators did nothing.

It’s unacceptable. And stories like Zach’s are far from rare. Similar events are taking place across the country, creating a toxic environment that denies countless LGBT students their right to an equal education.

That’s why we’re pressuring Congress to take action — and we need you to add your voice right away.

Take action,Protect LGBT Students from Harassment and Discrimination,

Every day, students in schools across the country face harassment and discrimination because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. Feeling unsafe in school can lead to increased absenteeism, dropout rates, adverse health consequences, and academic underachievement.

The Student Non-Discrimination Act will help to ensure that discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students has no place in our country’s public schools. The legislation builds on existing protections for students based on their race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin, and will provide LGBT students and their families with legal recourse against discriminatory treatment.

Urge your Representative and Senators to make schools safe and fair. Take action now and demand passage of the Student Non-Discrimination Act.

Take action,Protect LGBT Students from Harassment and Discrimination,

It’s reasons like this that we can not let the republican party win more seats in congress, the senate and the white house, it’s time that we stood up to the animals in Washington and in the church! It’s the church that breads hate and it’s the republican party that flues the fires. I’m not asking you guys to give money but take the time when a gay bill comes up for a vote to write the people in Washington, when there is a gay news story go to that site and add a comment, STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!
