The Uniting American Families ActMonday 30, March 2009
By Brittney Shepherd, Staff Producer | Latest News, That's A Family!
If there is anything that the kids in Thats A Family! teach us, it’s that it doesn’t matter where your parents are from, or what gender they are, but it’s growing up in a loving home that makes a family. For many young people with same-sex parents, one parent is prohibited from being with their family because they are not eligible to immigrate.
That is why we applaud Senator Patrick Leahy for sponsoring the Uniting American Families Act, which would allow citizens to sponsor their same-sex partner for immigration.
