Nadler: ‘Madness’ To Reform Immigration Without Same-Sex Couple Protection
New York Congressman Jerry Nadler says we have to protect same-sex couples to have proper immigration reform.
The strong statement in support of LGBT inclusion followed Sen. John McCain’s comments earlier Monday suggesting that senators proposing a framework for immigration reform had not yet discussed the issue, saying only, “We’ll be working out those details.”
Calling the absence of specific mention of LGBT immigration issues in the Senate framework a “major omission,” Nadler, D-NY, told BuzzFeed, “My bill to provide equal immigration rights for the LGBT community – the Uniting American Families Act – has been part of most Democratic immigration proposals in recent years, and… I fully expect UAFA to be included in actual legislation.”Click here for reuse options!
