The Obama Administration Must Appeal the DOMA Decisions

In today’s column over at 365gay.com (not gay on Feb. 29?), I argue that the government needs to appeal the decision by a Massachusetts federal district judge that ruled section 3 of DOMA unconstitutional.

I even think that the case might come out favorably even when it reaches theĀ  Supreme Court.

    John, if DOMA is either ultimately found unconstitutional, or struck down in Congress, what effect would this have on immigration rights for same-sex couples? Would such an instance automatically bring a change in immigration policy (thus allowing gay and lesbian Americans the right to petition USCIS for their foreign same-sex partners to come to the US), or would that be a separate issue that would have to be further dealt with through UAFA?
