Partisan Politics and Domestic Partnership Provision Will Derail Immigration Bill

Jun 4, 2010

Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) proposed immigration bill includes a provision for same-sex domestic partners that would treat them like spouses in a marriage, thus making way for a foreign same-sex partner to become a legal citizen because of their relationship to a U.S. citizen. President Barack Obama supports the objective of this provision, despite the fact that inclusion of domestic partnerships will kill any immigration bill.

"A flawed immigration policy and the failure of the federal government to enforce existing immigration laws pose serious threats to our national security and domestic tranquility," said Mathew Staver, Founder & Chairman of Liberty Counsel. "Any potential consensus for key aspects of immigration may quickly be set back by partisan politics and special interests," Staver continued.
