On Monday afternoon, I posted a diary discussing the Uniting American Families Act. It also got Front Paged here (thanks, benign overlord administrators) I also received an excellent e-mail about the issue.
I titled the diary “The gay rights bill you don’t know about.” I should have checked some tags first. Heh.
At any rate, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a very informative hearing on the bill Wednesday morning.
To recap, UAFA does one simple thing. It would allow American citizens to sponsor same sex partners for immigration just like married couples. The Senate bill is sponsored by Patrick Leahy of Vermont while the House version is sponsored by Jerrold Nadler of New York. Follow me below for a recap of the hearing.
