Deloizy faces deportation because immigration officials are barred from recognizing their marriage under the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Himes filed a spousal green card petition so they can continue living stateside in Harrisburg with their four children, John, 11, Claire, 8, and 6-year-old twins, Jacob and Joshua.

These deportation laws are crazy. Obviously, the DOMA is crazy too. But look at these nutty deportations:

In LA: "Five thousand minors are in foster homes because they were separated from their families when their parents were detained and deported"
http://newamericamedia.org/2011/11/5...outrageous.php

"A federal immigration judge has ordered a 38-year-old woman adopted by an American couple from Mexico when she was 5 months old to be deported back to her native country."

Their current state of residence doesn't consider their marriage legal, either.

Keep on freepin' on

Family values is allowing a gay family to be broken up due to deportation.
