While many had hoped that the new immigration bill would finally solve the problems surrounding immigration rights for gay and lesbian families, Immigration Equality Exectuive Director Rachel Tiven anounced that she does not expect that same-sex couples will be included in the comprehensive immigration reform bill. The bi-partisan group of senators are expected to introduce the reformed bill by the end of the week. “We are not expecting LGBT families to be included in the Gang of 8 bill,” she told the Washington Blade during a conference call ahead of a rally in support of comprehensive immigration reform on Wednesday that is expected to draw tens of thousands of people to the U.S. Capitol. “That in our minds means that of course the bill is incomplete.” [WashingtonBlade]
