Stephen Broden, guest correspondent for The New American, reflects on the Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill that is currently in the House of Representatives.
A group of black leaders rallied on Capitol Hill July 15 to emphasize how the present immigration "reform" bill would economically devastate the black community.
On June 28 — just two days after the Supreme Court decision that struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that denied federal benefits to members of same-sex "marriages" — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services notified Traian Popov, a Bulgarian immigrant who lives with his American partner, that his application for a permanent visa (green card) had been approved. Popov and Julian Marsh, who has joint U.S.-Canadian citizenship, were wed in New York, where same-sex "marriage" is legal. Their “marriage” is not recognized in Florida, where they currently live.
