US Law Association supports LGBT migration equality

The world’s richest and most powerful lawyers’ group, the American Bar Association, has for the first time adopted a resolution for multinational LGBT rights- so that same sex partners will be able to migrate to the US.

Here is the resolution:

RESOLVED, That the American Bar Association supports the enactment of legislation and the implementation of public policy to enable a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident who:
(1) shares a committed, intimate relationship with another adult individual of the same-sex;
(2) is not married to or in any other legally-recognized partnership with anyone other than that individual; and
(3) is unable to enter into a marriage with that other individual that is cognizable under the Immigration and Nationality Act, to sponsor that individual for permanent residence in the United States.
