Homeland Security Warns Vermont Same-Sex Couple: You're Not Legally Married

http://crooksandliars.com/susie-madrak/homeland-security-warns-vermont-same-


This is why we need same-sex marriage rights on the federal level. This is just disgraceful. You'd think with all those dangerous medical marijuana dealers Homeland Security is hunting down, they'd be too busy to deport lawfully married spouses:

I am ashamed this is being done by my country.

2. What can they do NOW? That's the question....

I know we have treaties that recognize civil laws of other nations...maybe go and remarry in another country?

I hope someone up the chain in the Homeland Security/Immigration sphere puts a stop to this harassment.

Your screen name, 'Justice Wanted,' is appropriate to this thread!

3. Their marriage would be recognized in Washington D.C.

An area directly under Federal control.

4. It's time for us gays

To stop paying taxes since we are considered second class citizens. We have NO representation from the federal government. If we are "invisible" to them for our rights, it only must mean we are "invisible" and don't have to pay taxes. Let it go to court. This might be the best thing. And I want all the back taxes I paid throughout my lifetime. Always MAKING us file "single" on our taxes. I don't have the clout or the money to make a difference, but if we all stuck together with a class action lawsuit it may get somewhere. They are keeping us down, while protecting "religious" groups to attack us with "free speech", and prop 8. Till they "see" us, we shouldn't have to pay them shit. And if your state doesn't allow equal rights, then don't pay them either. Lawsuits are good for our cause.

5. i agree-civil disobedience quite often gets a group further in their goals than anything else

but I do worry that good people will go to prison and expend maybe scarce financial resources that could be used elsewhere

6. Full Faith and Credit Clause State and Federal

 

The Federal Defense of Marriage Act is Unconstitutional.

Don't like it. Change Full Faith and Credit Clause at the State and Federal level.
