From TPM:

Responding to a report indicating that President Obama will call for same-sex couples to be covered in immigration reform, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Tuesday said the issue is "not of paramount importance at this time." The Senate's recently unveiled reform plan does not address same-sex couples' immigration issues.
I have news for you John.

We. Are. All. Human. Beings.

You are talking about ripping families apart and you do not find this to be of paramount importance?

The obsession with demonizing immigrants has a long history in this country ironically.

But this has the added twist of LGBT hate thrown in with the racism. And as always this will impact the Transgender Community at a disproportionally higher rate as those that have fled their home country for the relative sanctuary here are also impacted by these laws.
