I saw you on Democracy Now! this morning and was very interested to hear you report that Obama is no longer supporting DOMA.
I am in a situation very similar to your own -- I am an American national living with my partner in his country of Costa Rica, where I am unable to marry him and be granted any immigration rights here.
Likewise, he has been repeatedly denied any visa to visit the United States, despite the fact that I have shown US Immigration interviewers evidence that he has been my partner for the past 5 years. Their response to our attempts has been to deny him residency and even a
tourist visa to visit the USA on the grounds that we cannot prove our relationship legally in Costa Rica nor the USA.
Obviously the situation is very frustrating to the both of us. Now that I have seen your report about Obama no longer supporting the Defense of Marriage Act, I have hope and expectation again that I may be able to bring my partner to the US. I'd be very interested in any
more information you have on the issue or any information on the next step for the immigration process, if you know it.
Thanks very much for making me aware of this issue. Good luck to you and your family.
