According to the Huffington Post, with all the concerns about seeking to have illegal immigrants deported, there is a rising question regarding same sex relationships with foreigners. Homeland Security has shared that there might be a possibility in which foreigners that have been involved in a same sex relationship may be protected from deportation, though it is not a guarantee. They claim that there are programs that are being designed in order to help consider gay couples in which one person is from another country.
Classifying these relationships as low-priority on the deportation check list is helping their cause as officials seek to crack down on more criminals instead of people that pose no threat. They claim that while they are seeking to find ways in which to help these gay couples, the Obama administrations say they can’t flat out ignore their immigrant status. The Homeland Security recognizes the public’s hopes to protect same sex couples from having one being deported, and many law offices are trying to help clients fight for their right to stay in this country, especially when tied down to a significant other.
The ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) states that there are criteria’s in which they will evaluate to determine whether or not the immigrants should be able to stay in the United States. This would include family ties or community relations, or criminal records. The ICE is currently deciding whether or not to include gay couples as a part of the “family ties” criteria. Whatever the case may be, those who are in relationships or working in the United States should be given the opportunity to stay.
