    Why is this bill still in the committees? After reading about the horrors that Shirley Tan had to go through, this bill should have passed Congress, been signed by Obama, and taken effect in a single week! It should have passed by voice vote!

    I am holding all 535 Congressmen personally responsible, in their individual capacities, for condoning this persecution (because that’s just what it is: Persecution) until this bill gets passed.

    Myself and my partner ( US citizen) have been together 10 years. We have a beautiful son, Finn ( 16 months, born here & I’m pregnant) I sold my house in Scotland to pay for my student visa ( the only way for us to be together here). The only hope for us to stay in the US is for the UFA to pass. Gay marriage is only at State level and means nothing for bi-national immigration status. All that me and my family wishes is that the dread and fear of having to leave our home, friends and life in the US is lifted. We would like to be treated like any other law abiding, tax paying couple. We have seen too many of our friends having to leave as they have to chose between their relationship, family and country. Please let us live in a US which has true equality and justice under the law for all. Our time is running out. How would hetrosexual couples feel if this liberty were denied to them?

    I can’t understand why people would oppose to this bill. This bill has nothing to do with gay marriage. Gay people just want to stay with their partners, just like any heterosexual people do. You can’t just let people fall in love and then split them apart. If other 20 countries could do it, I am sure America can also do this. Please support and pass UAFA!
