    The Obama Administration has denied the request of a married couple in San Francisco, ordering the expulsion of one spouse who is the primary caregiver of his legally married husband with AIDS.

    Team Obama is incapable of valuing our actual relationships, while making pretty speeches about DOMA’s unconstitutionality.

    Bradford Wells, a U.S. citizen, and Anthony John Makk, a citizen of Australia, were married seven years ago in Massachusetts. They have lived together 19 years, mostly in an apartment in the Castro district. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services denied Makk’s application to be considered for permanent residency as a spouse of an American citizen, citing the 1996 law that denies all federal benefits to same-sex couples.​

    Mr Wells states his case plainly:

    “I’m married just like any other married person in this country,” Wells said. “At this point, the government can come in and take my husband and deport him. It’s infuriating. It’s upsetting. I have no power, no right to keep my husband in this country. I love this country, I live here, I pay taxes and I have no right to share my home with the person I married.”​

    It displays Obama's hypocrisy. However, that is what the left is about, eh? If the left is really concerned about immigration policy, then they would go after Obama' aunt. Instead, they rather preach about gay rights while trashing them.

    However, given Obama's attack on civil liberties, this behavior is not surprising.

    What are you saying? That it's not because he's gay? That he's being treated like any other illegal alien? That's so mean!

    It is the hypocrisy that is astounding. Additionally, showing that there are no other priorities in going after immigration matters also raises eyebrows.

    A case-by-case basis that appears to exclude a legally married gay couple who have been together 19 years, one of whom is the AIDS caregiver for a United States citizen, along with owning rental property in the United States and starting a business here. Surely this is the kind of case where case-by-case basis discretion might apply. Why would this Australian’s deportation be prioritized? Aren’t there other, higher priority immigration matters?
