Obama Grants 'Reparations' to Homosexuals

The Obama administration has embarked on massive taxpayer-funded benefits to homosexuals who agree to "marry," such as vacations for members of the military and special rights to non-citizen homosexuals:  Foreigners who enter into same-sex "marriage" get faster visas, and those living in the U.S. with expired visas will be forgiven if they "marry" a same-sex partner.

-- From "The Military Endorses Same-Sex Marriage" by Mark Joseph Stern, Slate 8/14/13

Today, the Pentagon has announced that it will grant the exact rights and benefits to married same-sex couples that it does to married straight couples, including housing and healthcare, a vast expansion of its previously announced plans to extend only meager perks to gay couples. Even more surprisingly, the military will offer a 10-day leave to gay couples stationed in a non-marriage state to travel to the 13 states plus Washington, D.C., to be legally wed.

Make no mistake: This is huge news, the biggest military-related LGBT victory since the repeal of Don’t Ask Don't Tell. . . . To allow gay couples to leave the homophobic states [sic] in which they are stationed to gain equal rights—to encourage it, actually, by tethering it to a holiday—is a bold endorsement of marriage equality by the military.

And that endorsement will have broad repercussions throughout society. . . .

From "Military to allow leave for gay weddings" by David S. Cloud, Los Angeles Times 8/14/13

In a sign of how quickly society is changing, the Pentagon said Wednesday it would grant special leave to thousands of military personnel in same-sex relationships so they can get married in the 13 states where such unions are legal — making them eligible for the first time for full benefits provided to other military families.

The decision, which the Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously backed, places the military in the forefront of the still-contentious national debate over same-sex unions.

Same-sex marriage is still barred in 37 states, including the entire South, where many of the Pentagon's largest installations are located. Thus many gay and lesbian couples in the military will face the unusual situation of having their unions recognized by federal authorities while they are on base, but not by the states where they live.

Critics contend that the Obama administration is pushing the military into the center of a political controversy with the goal of forcing even wider acceptance of same-sex marriage in the civilian realm.

From "John Kerry: Gay couple visas now issued" by Hadas Gold, Politico 8/2/13

The United States will immediately begin issuing immigrant visas to same-sex couples, Secretary of State John Kerry announced Friday.

As long as the marriage is valid in the jurisdiction, either U.S. or foreign country where it took place, it is valid for immigration purposes, the State Department said in statement. An engaged couple who cannot marry in the foreign fiancĂ©’s country can apply for a fiancĂ©(e) (K) visa.

From "State Dept. Panel Advises Gay Foreigners in Civil Unions to Get Married" by Alissa Tabirian, 8/19/13

Victoria Neilson, legal director for the LBGT group Immigration Equality, was one of three panelists fielding questions submitted through social media sites. She was asked exactly how foreign domestic partnerships will be recognized under new State Department guidelines that require visa applications based on same-sex marriages to be treated the same way as those for heterosexual marriages.

The Immigration Equality website offers the same advice Neilson did on marrying to “feel more secure that your relationship will be recognized for immigration purposes” and notes that generally, “marriage-based petitions are adjudicated quicker” than employment-based petitions.

From "On-line Discussion of Visa Guidelines for Same-Sex Spouses" posted at U.S. State Department 8/8/13 - Don Heflin, Director of the Visa Office at the State Department Bureau of Consular Affairs and David Stewart, Minister Counselor for Consular Affairs at the U.S. Embassy in London

MR. JOHNSON: Hi there, and welcome to the Google Hangout on the Department of State’s visa processing guidelines for same-sex spouses. . . . we have Victoria Neilson, who is legal director for the LGBT group Immigration Equality.

MS. NEILSON: Great. Hi, thanks for having me here. This is a very exciting time for Immigration Equality. . . . It’s been really great to finally be able to say yes to committed [homosexual] families instead of no, which we’ve been saying for many years. We are delighted that the State Department put out its guidance last week . . .

. . . the advice that we have been giving to most [homosexual] couples is if you can get . . . married, that your rights will be much more certain at that point and the processing of an application would be more straightforward. . . .

. . . If you entered [the U.S.] legally with the visa and overstayed and you are married to a U.S. citizen, then the fact that you’re here unlawfully is forgiven and you can file that application from within the U.S. . . .
