If you are an American living in terror that your homosexual lover will be torn from your loving embrace by government agents because he or she is living in our country illegally (an illegal alien), fear no longer. The Great Leader has heard your cries and he has decreed his mercy upon you. By the force of his mighty will he has directed the formidable apparatus of state security to look elsewhere for evildoers and ignore the crimes of your felonious lover.
From Carolyn Lochhead at the San Francisco Chronicle we learn:
Same-Sex Couples Officially Added For Deportation Relief
Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano has officially clarified that the same-sex partners and spouses of U.S. citizens are eligible for relief under the Obama administration's new policy of putting a lower priority on certain deportation cases.
The action was a response to a letter from Congress led by House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, and Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat who for years has crusaded for immigration relief for same-sex couples. Heterosexual immigrant spouses of U.S. citizens are allowed to apply for immigration rights that are denied to same-sex couples under the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.
Let this wonderful act be added to the scroll of goodness. Another gift from "The One" - our Great Leader who rules over our lazy unworthy selves with mercy and kindness.
