The so-called group of eight bipartisan senators introduced their blueprint for CIR several weeks ago. It contained no provision for bi-national same-sex couples, despite the years long push among advocates to include UAFA.
This week I asked New York Senator Charles Schumer’s press office if he would strongly advocate for it, since it has not been included in the bill. I got a one-sentence reply: “Senator Schumer is a co-sponsor of UAFA and supports its inclusion in comprehensive immigration reform.”
But, significantly, Schumer has not yet put UAFA in the bill. So when I hear senators and House members insisting that “all men are created equal,” I won’t believe them until I finally see some proof.
