Gay couples divided by immigration law

Incredibly emotional video about US citizens in relationships with foreign citizens and the difficulties of staying together. I am amazed at how little awareness many people have about this aspect of marriage inequality. So many liberal people assume US citizens can get married “somewhere.” Yet state marriage does not provide immigration benefits, retirement benefits, health care, property rights, or any other basic legal protection routinely afforded to the non-gays.
