U.S. Immigration: Halt In Deporting Foreign Gay Partners Is Just Temporary, Don’t Get Too Excited

Just kidding everyone! A statement on Monday from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services department spokesman Christopher S. Bentley had us all believing the government was going to stop deporting the foreign partners of married gay couples while the constitutionality of DOMA is decided. But that’s just a temporary (read: two week-ish) halt. Yesterday Bentley clarified the government’s position: immigration officials have “not implemented any change in policy and intends to follow the president’s directive to continue enforcing the law.”
