Thank you very much. I have heard that some people just can not be accepted into they Pro Bono System asylum program because they cases are not as straight forward 'easy' as they wish they were. Others expressed concerns that they do not look like those asylum seekers on the front page of the website. I also saw on the website that they advise to the asylum office, by using deductive method what I'm implying here? I wonder whether or not it means that they give advise against your case if they do not like you, then it is not good. Who know it for certain, please share the information with other gay people here. You probably can get help if you can sex reassignment surgery, you also more likely than not will get help if you marry someone of your own gender or if you can find a good stylist who will decorate your look, for female its easy but need to cut your hair short, for man it would be helpful to have few earrings and color the hairs)long hairs - if you can do any of those, sometimes simple things it can save you from lots of troubles and prejudices down the road. I am striving to learn more and really do my best to come to the right conclusion. Any more thoughts, only practical advice please?
Because I like the idea and my knowledge is limited I will start with 5 stars.
Immigration Equality is a small, hard working organization that fights for some of the most important rights the LGBT and HIV+ community is deprived off. It's been very successful in its battle against the absurd discrimination against HIV positive immigrants and visitors by pushing the lifting of the HIV ban. It's helped many immigrants who fled their home countries where their life was in danger because their sexual identity. And the staff of this organization works very hard to give gay Americans the basic right to live with their foreign partner in the US and not being forced to choose between their family and the country they love.
Immigration Equality has taken on a huge task of representing and fighting for LGBT community working to change the immigration laws. The discrimination LGBT community is facing from INS is not covered in the media and talked about as much as other gay issues that have become part of the political and social landscape, but affects too many in the community, and almost everybody was touched by it directly or indirectly. This issue separates gay couples and families sending foreign partner out of the country and causes a lot of stress and pain in the process. Immigration Equality is our very competent voice and is making a huge difference in changing the laws and keeping gay binational couples together.
Great organization. Working hard to give us all hope that soon we will be all counted as equal by immigration laws.
This site has been an invaluable resource to those of us in a bi-national relationship, having to live in another country. It keeps up up to date with what is happening with LGBT issues in America, how the UAFA is progressing, and it fights equally for all - not just people like me and my wife, living in a country we don't want to. I've been donating for a while now and will continue to do so, because the support they offer is indiscriminate and priceless. ImmigrationEquality deserves your vote!!
I try to check their blog as much as I can and support their fight to make our country a place where every American share the same rights. Keep up the great work!
Immigration Equality has been so great. For the past year and a half my Brazilian partner and I have only been able to see each other when I can find the time to go visit him. He cannot come here, know my home or my family. IE has been personally supportive and works tirelessly to overcome the injustice and cruel disregard for LGBT bi-national couples. They also were instrumental in helping get the HIV travel ban repealed and continue to work to have the repeal implemented.
Immigration Equality is doing such a good job for same-sex binational couples. Currently there are 36,000 couples who are denied civil rights that heterosexual couples are afforded. Keep up the good work.
