What to Do About Speaker Boehner

The Speaker of the House, John Boehner refuses to bring the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) up for a vote. Not to mention that the immigrant hater Lamar Smith refuses to bring the Uniting American Families Act up for a hearing in the Judiciary Committee (but that is a different blog subject)

What we need to do is for all of us, every single one of us to contact, email, tweet, and/or fax the Speaker's office daily. YES, Daily.

To Email the Speaker, you must use this form outside of Ohio's 8th district.

Office of the Speaker

H-232 The Capitol

Washington, DC 20515

Phone: (202) 225-0600

Fax: (202) 225-5117

If you live in Ohio's 8th district, you can email his Ohio Office

We can complain about his tears and the fact that he refuses to bring DOMA up for a vote, but unless we take action, our complaints are only heard by those who actually agree with our arguments .... and this will not bring about change. I urge you to take action.

It was brought to my attention that I was remiss in leaving out his twitter accounts. He has two of them. @SpeakerBoehner and @johnboehner

Binational Same Sex Couples: The Minority of a Minority

Why Passing the Uniting American Families Act

and Repealing DOMA is Urgent


The Census in the year 2000 said that binational same sex couples numbered approximately 36,000.  In the 2010 Census, we have yet to receive a number, however rumor has it that it was not counted or divided to give an accurate number.  With the onset of online dating, Skype, chat rooms, and other various ways our lives our touched by technology, I believe that number to be at least tripled.  However, all in all, we are a small group of gays and lesbians who have fallen in love with someone who is not an American Citizen.  If we were heterosexual, we could apply for a green card for our spouses and it would be immediately granted with little fanfare.  Because the people with whom we have fallen in love are of the same sex, there is little to no options for our spouses to immigrate.  Our options include the following:

1.  Our foreign born spouse can get a job here in the United States.  Unfortunately, it has to be a specialized job that no American citizen is able to do or wants to do.

2.  College.  Paying out of state fees.  However, one can only afford that for so long and there are only so many degrees that a person can earn.

3.  Be unusually talented.  By that I mean a Celine Dion or a Sammy Sosa type talent. 

Those are the legal options we have for immigration.  If our spouses do not or cannot fall into any of these categories, our options are really limited:

1.  Move to the spouses country if they are gay friendly.

2.  Move to a third country if able

3.  Live apart and on visits from time to time

4.  Live in the United States as a non-person "under the wire"

While Marriage Equality is so very important and absolutely needs to get done, those who live with their partners can go home at night and be held by their spouse/partner.  Bi-national same sex couples live visit to visit...often going a year or so before being able to hold their loved one.  I am asking everyone to please take action to get the Uniting American Families Act brought up for some sort of vote.  Right now, Lamar Smith, chairman of the Judiciary Committee in the House, has no intentions of bringing anything like it up for a vote.  He needs to be contacted daily.  We need to make the Uniting American Families Act something that Congress hears each and every day.

Tonight when you go to bed and you reach out and touch your loved one, know that thousands of bi-national gay and lesbian people are alone and not able to hold their loved one.  We just want a chance to live our lives with the person with whom we love, to live and love and just be and be legal.   Know that we are a small group, but we are part of a larger group and we are Americans asking for our right to live with our love. We ask for your help in getting the necessary legislation brought forward.

New York Marriage Equality Bitter-Sweet for Bi-National Same Sex Couples

"Hey American ... Hey American Lady.... " A man with a very thick middle Eastern accent approached us.  "Hey you are American?  I will marry you for for $40,000"  As my girlfriend (later to become my wife) and I walked along the streets of Amsterdam fourteen years ago, this offer shocked me and made me uncomfortable.  I chuckled and said something about the guy being desperate.  Today, sadly, I  understand this man's desperation all too well.

Today, NEW YORK celebrated Marriage Equality.  It was so very bittersweet.  I looked at all the pictures and had tears in my eyes for happiness for these couples.

  Congratulations from my heart to all of those who got married today and will marry in the future. 

Today, a friend of mine will leave her country in Europe and come for a short visit here in the United States.  She will visit the love of her life.  She will have to leave in three months and go back to her country of origin and leave her life partner....because there is no equality for us. 

Even if every single state in the Union and Puerto Rico were to legalize Marriage legalize Same Sex Marriage, it would not help bi-national same sex couples...not one little bit.  Immigration is under Federal law and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is the law of the land.  If we could get the Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) passed or the Uniting American Families Act. (UAFA) Now that is something that would remedy the situation and give us the freedom to be able to hold our loved ones in our arms...just to be able to be with them...

In the last year, two of my friends who are in a bi-national relationship will have in the last year, only spent 14 days together.  How is this justice? 

Please read my friends stories. Their courage to share what they are going through and their strength inspire me.

I am My Beloved's and My Beloved is Mine

The Last Night: VIDEO

A lot of my bi-national friends are legally married, however because of DOMA and because of unjust immigration laws, it does not matter. Legally, we are not allowed to be together. Please, if immigration by some other way, along some other avenue were possible, all of these bi-national couples would have done it already.

Please celebrate Marriage Equality in New York and know our hearts rejoice with yours. Please understand that we still are apart from our husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, life partners and we have no legal avenue to get our spouses here. We need DOMA repealed and we need it done soon. We also need the Uniting American Families Act passed. We should have the right to sponsor our partners for immigration.

Please stand with us.

The Senate DOMA Hearing

The first ever congressional hearing on the Respect for Marriage Act has ended. Among the witnesses were Freedom to Marry's Founder and President Evan Wolfson

Ron Wallen, a California man who may lose his home because DOMA prohibits him from receiving Social Security survivor benefits from his recently deceased husband Tom.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) questions Focus on the Family's Tom Minnery about his misrepresentation of a HHS study while claiming that children are better off being raised in homes with opposite-sex couples. The study found that children fair best when raised in homes with two parents regardless of gender.

Under questioning from Sen. Patrick Leahy, Focus on the Family's Tom Minnery admits that children are disadvantaged by lack of protections for same-sex couples.

From The Atlantic

Back in 1996, no senator was calling the antigay forces on their lies, damn lies, and statistics. No senator approvingly quoted his state's married same-sex couples or invited white-bread suburban lawnmowing gay men and lesbians to tell the heartbreaking disaster stories about being excluded from full marriage recognition. This time, perhaps no Republican senator was yet willing to urge DOMA's repeal, but only Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) showed up to speak in support of it.

The moral panic of the late 1980s and early 1990s left behind three major legacies: Bowers v. Hardwick, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and DOMA. The first two have fallen. And while states' laws and constitutional amendments have to be repealed as well, the federal DOMA is the most important brick in the wall. Today I could see that wall shaking.

Tom and Ron's story is a stark example of the kind of injustice same-sex couples face due to the Defense of Marriage Act. You can help reverse it by signing the petition to end the "gay tax" and repeal DOMA at

The Church/World Wrong?

The Earth is Flat

The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church” Ferdinand Magellan

The Earth is the Center of the Universe and the Sun rotates around the Earth Galileo Galilei - believed that the Earth rotated around the Sun. The entire world...all of the experts felt that the Earth was the center of the universe. From Wikipedia:

In February 1616, although he had been cleared of any offence, the Catholic Church nevertheless condemned heliocentrism as "false and contrary to Scripture", and Galileo was warned to abandon his support for it—which he promised to do. When he later defended his views in his most famous work, Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, published in 1632, he was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy", forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest.

The Bible says that Homosexuality is an Abomination

What the Bible says is an abomination is the unholy practice and cult ritual of a man depositing his sperm in the body of the High Priest during idol worship. The Bible never condemns a loving, monogamous, same sex relationship.

The Bible Says - Marriage

All of the above links are previous entries from my blog. They contain a great deal of research and compelling evidence that The Almighty God does not condemn a monogamous same sex relationship. I would be more than happy to discuss or debate my research in a respectful manner. Please feel free to comment or email.

The Salem Witch Trials

From Wikipedia

The Salem witch trials were a series of hearings before county court trials to prosecute people accused of witchcraft in the counties of Essex, Suffolk, and Middlesex in colonial Massachusetts, between February 1692 and May 1693. Despite being generally known as the Salem witch trials, the preliminary hearings in 1692 were conducted in a variety of towns across the province: Salem Village (now Danvers), Ipswich, Andover and Salem Town.

The best-known trials were conducted by the Court of Oyer and Terminer in 1692 in Salem Town. Over 150 people were arrested and imprisoned, with even more accused but not formally pursued by the authorities. All twenty-six who went to trial before this court were convicted. The four sessions of the Superior Court of Judicature in 1693, held in Salem Village, but also in Ipswich, Boston and Charlestown, produced only three convictions in the thirty-one witchcraft trials it conducted. The two courts convicted twenty-nine people of the capital felony of witchcraft. Nineteen of the accused, fourteen women and five men, were executed by hanging.[1] One man, Giles Corey, refused to enter a plea and was crushed to death under heavy stones in an attempt to force him to do so. At least five more of the accused died in prison.

The episode is one of the most famous cases of mass hysteria, and has been used in political rhetoric and popular literature as a vivid cautionary tale about the dangers of isolationism, religious extremism, false accusations, lapses in due process, and local governmental intrusion on individual liberties

The Bible Says - Marriage

Ruth 1:16 & 17

But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me."

What beautiful words. No where else in the Bible can one find such an intent promise of being faithful until death. No where else in the Bible can one find one so intent on being with the other that they are willing to change religion, location, and most importantly, place of burial. These are intimate words of love, promise and faithfulness.

These verses are often heard at weddings, as a matter of fact, I spoke these very words to my beloved bride on our wedding day on June 14th. These are TRADITIONAL wedding verses.

These words are spoken by a woman (Ruth) to another woman (Naomi)

Another passage in the Bible regarding two people of the same sex having romantic feelings for each other is that of David and Jonathan. I know that people would like to explain it away as the two of them being good friends, but that is not the language that the Bible uses when describing these two men.

I Samuel 18:1-3

1 After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself.

2 From that day Saul kept David with him and did not let him return home to his family.

3 And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself.

4 Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, and even his sword, his bow and his belt.

If this story had been written about Jonathan and a woman, it would be considered to be one of the sweetest love stories in the Bible. Man meets woman, immediately falls in love and gives her his prized possessions. However, because it is because the King's Son and the Man after God's own heart, they explain it away as the two of them being best friends. They want to look at this a a "brotherly friendship" between these two men. The Bible language describing this relationship does not support this description.

I Samuel 20:16

So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, “May the LORD call David’s enemies to account.”

17 And Jonathan had David reaffirm his oath out of love for him, because he loved him as he loved himself.

King Saul also saw this relationship as being more than brotherly love. Jonathan's father, King Saul, mentions this relationship as being sexual.

I Samuel 20:30

Then Saul's anger was kindled against Jonathan, and he said unto him, "Thou son of the perverse rebellious woman, do not I know that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion and unto the confusion of thy mother's nakedness?

31 For as long as the son of Jesse liveth upon the ground, thou shalt not be established, nor thy kingdom. Therefore now send and fetch him unto me, for he shall surely die."

32 And Jonathan answered Saul his father and said unto him, "Why shall he be slain? What hath he done?"

33 And Saul cast a javelin at him to smite him, whereby Jonathan knew that it was determined by his father to slay David.

34 So Jonathan arose from the table in fierce anger, and ate no meat the second day of the month; for he was grieved for David, because his father had done him shame.

In this Biblical text, King Saul speaks very strongly and even more significantly to the sexual relationship between David and Jonathan.

Uncovering the nakedness of a family member was a euphemism for incest in the holiness codes of the Old Testament , and Saul would not have used this phrase lightly. The implication is that Jonathan is bringing sexual shame on his family [because if this relationship continued, Saul's line would not be able to continue in royalty because David was to be the King].

From the Book The Children are Free

by Rev. Jeff Miner and John Tyler Connoley

Lastly on David and Jonathan is what David himself says when he learns of Jonathan's death:

II Samuel 1:25 &26

25 "How the mighty have fallen in the midst of the battle!

"Jonathan lies slain on your high places.

26 I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant have you been to me;

your love to me was extraordinary, surpassing the love of women.

In my entire life, I have never heard any man say to his buddy that he loves him more than he loves his wife...not only loves him more, but the loving was sweeter. This goes well beyond two guys being good friends.

"In this story, we have a direct Biblical answer to the question: Can two people of the same sex live in a loving committed relationship with God's favor? The answer is "yes" because Jonathan and David did and the Bible celebrates their relationship."

There is a movie out called "Elena Undone" where an observation is made by one of the characters: "...I mean who really cares who is kissing who..."

Just because two men kissing makes you feel ill, just because the thought of two men having sex is repulsive to you, doesn't mean that everyone finds it grotesque and appalling. By the way, most men don't find lesbians offensive. Actually, they find it (lesbian sex) to be quite appealing although some men would not admit that publicly. So again, I believe that this moral, self righteous judgement being put upon gay folks is less Biblical and more personal.

The great State of New York just passed a Marriage Equality law which will go into effect at the end of this months. Surprisingly, several Republicans voted for the bill to be passed I would like to quote some of their statements regarding as to why they voted for equality for all Americans:

Senator Roy McDonald:

"You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing,"

"You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing.

"I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this."

Senator James Alesi:

"I believe that if you live in America and you expect equality and freedom for yourself, you should extend it to other people,"

Senator Stephen Saland:

“At one time I thought civil unions afforded the opportunity to provide the ability for same sex couples to attain the status they wanted,” says Saland, who voted against same-sex marriage when a similar bill was defeated in 2009. “When I came to the conclusion that civil unions wouldn’t do it, and if you really believed in fairness and equality and doing the right thing…for me there was only one answer,” Saland says. “It was purely a vote of conscience. I did what I thought was the right thing.”

His thought process evolved through research, discussions with “many, many people on both sides of the issue,” and talks with his wife and children. “I wasn’t surprised by my wife’s support and advocacy for same-sex marriage,” he says. He was, however, struck by a question posed by his kids. “What surprised me was that all of my children, a couple of whom are more conservative than I am, basically said, ‘Why do you have a problem with supporting gay marriage?’” he recalls.

Then we had the two Senators who didn't come out smelling like roses. There was the ever loud Senator Ruben Diaz who has a granddaughter who is a lesbian. The Granddaughter stood by her grandfather until one day he was at a rally against Marriage Equality and one of the speakers, a Rev. Ariel Torres Ortega, said that homosexuals are worthy of death. Granddad Diaz did not speak up to defend his own flesh and blood. This was something that even Erica Diaz was unable to accept. She spoke up against the fact that she was unable to marry in her home state. Her Grandfather says that he will not attend her wedding when she does indeed get married. Ruben Diaz made quite a scene on the Senate floor when he was out of order, spoke too long, and another senator refused to yield the floor. All in all, I was wishing he would sit down because he was making such a fool of himself.

Senator Ball, the media grabbing, attention seeking Senator who hires a film crew to follow him around, used this marriage equality vote to gain a lot of press for himself by saying he was undecided in his vote when all along he knew he was just trying to grab the spotlight. Turns out...he made himself look like the narcissistic, closed minded, prejudiced person that he has always appeared to be in the past.

The Bible does not condemn a loving same sex relationship instead it celebrates them. I urge you to do some studying on your own. The conclusions that you come to might just surprise even you.

I urge Congress to take action and repeal the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and pass the Uniting American Families Act or the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act soon. Families are being torn apart...families just like yours.

Why Immigration Reform? Why Now?

Bi-National Same Sex Couples Living in Exile, Under the Radar, or Separated by United States Immigration Law.


One might ask why with all of the problems with the economy, unemployment and wars, why is it important to bring up the subject of immigration reform?  I would love to answer your question as briefly and succinctly as possible.

1. We are American Citizens

We, as United States citizens, should be allowed the same rights (nothing special) as every United States Citizen.  We ought to be able to enjoy the wonderful right to live with the person with whom we are in love.  While some may say that this is not all that important, I have a question, "Whom do you go to when your world is crushed, to whom do you reach out to when you need a shoulder on which to cry?"  Think of that for a while and then ask yourself the following question:  "What if that person was 10,000 miles away with no clear idea as to when you will see them again?" 

2.  We Should Move Beyond Discrimination in the Country Where All Are Created Equal

Many people were against allowing the people of color into the same colleges as the Caucasians.  These people were the Christians; the religious right.  Many people were against allowing interracial marriage.  These people were the Christians; the religious right.  True story, my Korean friend wanted to date a Hispanic man.  In order to do that, they had to get permission from the Pastor of our Independent Fundamental Baptist Church, who had people look up as to the origins of these races.  REALLY and this was in the early 80's.

People may say that racial discrimination and sexual orientation discrimination are two different things.  The truth of the matter is this, discrimination against a group of people who are being discriminated against because of whom they love is just that, discrimination.  It is wrong.

3.  Defense of Marriage Act is Unconstitutional

4.  We Have Families 

I am the proud mom of two sons.  I did not give birth to them, but they are my boys none-the-less.  My wife (we were just legally married in Iowa.) and we found a wonderful sperm donor.  Went to his house, picked up the sperm in a sterile cup, brought it home and to put it as gently as I can, I was able to be of help to get her pregnant.  When our boys were born, we went before a judge and I have joint custody of them.  I will be doing a second parent adoption as soon as we can dish out the $5,000 the attorneys want for each boy. 

If you think that I am any less of their mother than my wife, their birth mother, do you also feel the same way about adoptive parents?  Do you feel that step-parents are less of a parent?  Do you think that foster families who adopt their children are less of families?  Of course not.  I am their mother as much as their birth mother, my wife. 

We wanted these boys and had to go through a lot to have them.  We are a family no matter what anyone says.  I would really challenge anyone to find a closer family.  Our eight year old is in boy scouts, church choir, 4-H, and is making straight A's.  Our 4 year old will start kindergarten this fall.  I am so proud of the both of them. 

5.  There is no legal reason to vote against The Uniting American Families Act.

6.  It is nothing but pure cruelty to keep loved ones apart because you have personal issues against those relationships.  Growing up, my Pastor would not tolerate any sort of inter racial dating by the teen members of his church.  If a person went against the will of the Pastor, they could be thrown out of the church or made so miserable that they would leave the church.  Please tell me, what is the difference between what this man did and the things that Congress is doing to the Lesbian and Gay couples who just want to live together in peace and raise families.

7.  If it is against your Christian beliefs, I urge you to understand, I, too, am a Christian.  I, too, believe that Jesus died on the Cross for everyone.  I also know that the Lord Jesus Christ, of whom we Christians are supposed to try to be like, never condemned a loving monogamous same sex relationship.  I assure you, I have done the studying. 


The Bible Says - Homosexuality

I urge you to to bring the Comprehensive Immigration Act up for a vote.  I urge you to vote for the Comprehensive Immigration Act or the Uniting American Families Act.  To put it quite simply, it is the right thing to do.

Happy July 4th..... Land of the Cruel and Unequal

Let me say, first of all, that I love the United States of America. There is no greater country in the entire world. I am so proud to be an American. I will never take for granted that freedoms that we have and the price that has been paid for our freedoms.

My friend lost a son in Afghanistan, my own father was a World War II veteran. I have always been the most patriotic person. I love America. It breaks my heart and I feel betrayed by my country and my family, that they cannot accept us for who we are; for whom we love.

Governor Scott Walker (Wisconsin) believes a new law that gives gay couples hospital visitation rights violates the state constitution and has asked a judge to allow the state to stop defending it.

What is the point of this cruelty. Who cares if people who love each other visit each other in the hospital. This is nothing but power hungry, power mongering political play and a case of cruelty. I don't know what the point would be to prevent people seeing each other. For those of you who have experienced this type of discrimination and homophobia, I am sorry. I work in a hospital and I have never seen this type of discrimination and cruelty. I wrote a blog entry on how to avoid this type of evil cruelty. How to Bypass Hospital Homophobia/Discrimination

Matthew Shephard Memorial Site states the following.

On October 6, 1998, Matthew was beaten and tied to a fence just outside of Laramie, Wyoming. Yet, this one tragic event shook the nation. It may have been due to the fact that this murder took place in small town America, as well as a college town. Matthew was a student at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Even now, it is not fully clear what went on that night of October 6, 1998, but it appears to be a combination robbery and gay-bashing. Even though it has been over five years since Matthew's death, violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender as well as toward minorities continues unabated. This being the case, it is important that as many sites such as this be made available to keep the awareness of this serious problem before the public. In election years, it is all the more important that these issues are addressed by our future leaders. Even though Matthew's murder appears to have been motivated in part due to his being gay, this site exists as a resource for all human rights issues, not just those of the LGBT people.
It is my belief that people like Governor Walker probably did not find the torture and death of Matthew Shepherd disturbing, hateful and sad.

A Republican Representative Eric Turner (R-Marion)in the State of Indiana made the comment as he co-sponsored a bill to further discriminate against EQUAL RIGHTS for all Hoosiers, "'s nothing's not like this is hurting anyone..."

I beg to differ. Anytime that discrimination is written into the Constitution of any state, there is hurt being done. Our elected leaders cannot be so oblivious to this fact. They truly cannot believe that they are doing no harm to anyone by separating loved ones...please tell me they don't believe that people who are being told that they are second class citizens...please tell me that they don't believe that no harm is being done. Well, maybe they do believe that because they believe that the people being discriminated against are not deserving of a second thought. Maybe they believe that this group of people is undeserving because of who they love.

A lovely website is Top 10 Anti-Gay Activists Caught Being Gay

Just a quick thought on "He who lives in glass house should not throw stones..." and also the wonderful quote from William Shakespeare, " the lady doeth protest too much..."

My own Independent Fundamental Baptist family has now chosen to not have my wife, our boys and I be part of family functions. Upon announcing to my family that my love of 12 years and I were going to travel to the wonderful state of Iowa and get married, I received a type written letter from my two older sisters, their husbands (one of whom is an evangelist who goes around the United States preaching as to why Christians should memorize the Bible), and their adult children. It said that they had many family meetings (Of which I, my wife, or our other adult nephew were not part)and that:

"We have painfully decided as a family that if you follow through on this immoral act, we would be forced to break a lot of family relationships with you. We would have no desire to have you present at our usual family gatherings...This hurts to say this, but you would no longer be welcome in our homes."

They go on to say that the decision is mine. Yeah right. The sad thing is this, they really think that they are showing me "tough love". They really think that before God they are doing the right thing. They have been sadly disillusioned by power hungry, obsessive compulsive, and tyrannic church leadership. I don't know what they want me to do. Do they want me to give up my wife, my sons, my life, my family...that is exactly what they are asking me to do. Amazingly unbelievable isn't it. It is not their job to tell me how to live my life. I have done major research on what he Bible says about Homosexuality and have posted many entries as to my beliefs on what the Bible says. For those of you who are doubting my ability to understand the Bible I wish to tell you that from the 5th grade to graduating from the Independent Fundamental Baptist School and College, I have been in Bible School.

What Other "Abominations" Should We Condemn?

Then there is the Immigration Discrimination Issue

The vast majority of Americans have no clue as to what it takes to immigrate to the United States. Sadly, President Barak Obama made the statement that there are those who have stood inline for legal immigration..." If it were that easy, to just get in a line and get legal immigration, there would be few illegal immigrants....there would be no undocumented. However, for bi-national same sex couples, there is no line in which to stand. Unless our loved ones are rich, or extremely talented (like Sammy Sosa, Celine Dion), can get a job that no American can do, or are oppressed in their country by their government there is no line for binational same sex couples. Please consider my blog entry on how uneducated the regular American person is about immigration.

This fourth of July, let us hope and pray that this is the last one that we will say that there is a group of people in the United States that does not have equal rights. This is after all, the land of the free where all are created equal.
