Senate considers "Passport to Same-Sex Marriage"

The Family Research Council in Washington is alerting the public regarding Senate Bill 424 introduced in Washington DC.  Although this bill is called the “Uniting American Families Act of 2009”, FRC says this Bill is actually an attack upon marriage at the expense of U.S. taxpayers stating it is part of the movement to give same-sex partners special privileges.  Senate Bill 424  will allow any gay or lesbian foreigner who declares themselves to be a permanent partner of an American to immigrate to the U.S. on the same basis as foreign spouses. And, like a married couple, these homosexuals would be eligible for “permanent resident status” under the current immigration law.  The United States Senate Judiciary Committee will take up Senate Bill 424 at their Committee Meeting Wednesday, June 3rd at 10am. Both Wisconsin Senators Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold are members of this committee.  You may contact them regarding your position on Senate Bill 424. Senator Kohl’s number is (202) 224-5653.  Senator Feingold’s office can be reached at (202) 224-5323.
