Watch the new video from?The DOMA Project, fighting to stop deportations, separations and exile of gay and lesbian binational couples caused by the Defense of Marriage Act.?
Every day, tens of thousands of binational couples fight for the right to live together in the United States because the federal government refuses to recognize their marriages for immigration purposes. ?One such couple is Catriona & Cathy.
Catriona (U.S./Ireland) and Cathy (Ireland) met in 2006 while trekking in the Himalayas. The two married in May 2012, and they are now mothers to a son from Guatemala and two daughters from?Haiti. ?They were devastated earlier this year when Cathy’s second work visa was denied. All they knew was that they would do anything to keep their family together despite the unjust Defense of?Marriage Act (DOMA) that threatens to tear them apart. Their green card application can only be approved if DOMA is struck down by the Supreme Court.
