Following up on news that's been developing all week, MetroWeekly reports that the hold placed on denial of green cards to foreigners who are part of same-sex married bi-national couples is now over:
The agency will continue to "enforce the law," he says, which means that the Defense of Marriage Act -- which prohibits the government from recognizing same-sex marriages -- prevents those green card applications from being approved.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency confirmed that to be true, but dashed hopes by warning that enforcement of cases against same-sex couples could resume within weeks.
That hold now has apparently ended.
