Homeland Security Doesn’t Care If Henry Velandia Married An American

Wedding announcement impaired couple Greg Gould and Aurelio Tiné aren’t the only U.S.-Venezuela binational pair facing deportation because their marriages are invalid in the eyes of the federal government. So too are Henry Velandia and Josh Vandiver, whose Connecticut marriage license is no match for the Defense of Marriage Act and Henry’s foreign citizenship. Henry applied for a work visa through his employer — but only after his visitor’s visa expired. Their only hope: Delay the deportation process until the Supreme Court can knock down DOMA.
