Many LGBT Families Feel Left Out of President’s New Immigration Plan
President Obama’s new immigration plan focused on keeping families together and avoiding devastating deportations of the parents of children. However, the plan does not help families that do not have children. Also, the plan does not help the parents of US citizen children or lawful permanent resident children, when the parents are not the biological or legal parents. The Huffington Post reports that LGBT advocates say that these exclusions disproportionately affect LGBT families.
