The uphill battle that thousands of lesbian and gay couples face are described in these moving stories about immigration, injustice, and love. As Judy and Karin's story shows, when only one person in a gay couple is an American citizen, it is virtually impossible to obtain legal residence for the other partner. U.S. federal immigration law does not have a category for their union--even if they are legally married in another country. The result is that families are ripped apart, children are separated from their parents, gravely ill people die alone in the hospital, careers are abandoned, and relationships are strained to the breaking point.Thata#39;s when Aurelio learned how to drive and put all his belongings into a Honda Civic and headed east to ... issues to deal with, Roi is more concerned about Aure- lioa#39;s well-being in Canada or whether he has to go back to the Philippines.
