Very irate to read about the gay men married in Massachusetts 7 years ago, they’ve lived together 19 years, one of them an Australian citizen, the American suffering from AIDS, and now the federal government is trying to boot the Australian out of the country using the Defense of Marriage Act to say he can’t have permanent residency. If the Australian leaves, who will take care of his husband? And if the husband goes with him to Australia, who will cover his extensive medical needs? So ridiculous. SF gay married couple loses immigration battle.
