Possible DOMA Repeal Saves Married Lesbian Monica Alcota From Deportation Back to Argentina

Well isn’t this a bit of lovely news: Like Anton Tanumihardja before her, Queens lesbian Monica Alcota (pictured, right) will not be shipped back to Argentina, an immigration judge has decided. Alcota, who is married to Cristina Ojeda, an American, overstayed her tourist visa, but the judge overseeing her case wants to see if the Defense of Marriage Act is repealed before issuing a final decision.

      LOL!!! I love this judge! So if congress does nothing or delays it, all deportations of gay couple spouses in that jurisdiction may go on hold.
