Maybe it’s because I’m relatively new to the immigration beat, but I’m consistently surprised at the twists and turns of immigration policy that lead to absurd and shocking results.
Not only are most immigrants in detention centers imprisoned for months or even years despite not having committed a crime, as I wrote Monday, but, as Glenn Greenwald points out in Salon, while the heterosexual legal spouse of a U.S. citizen is allowed to live and work and apply for citizenship in the United States, gay spouses of U.S. citizens get no such privilege. Meanwhile, we have voters in California and elsewhere voting to make it impossible for gay people to get married and obtain that right. Whether intentionally or not, turns out they’re making an anti-immigration argument, too. The rule is estimated to be keeping thousands of people in committed same-sex relationships from even living in the same country.
