Cameron was initially invited to work here in the United States over 12 years ago and did so legally on a visa up until recently. Unfortunately he was laid off during the recession, so he lost his privileges to live and work in the US with a visa. However, during this time he had fallen madly in love with and committed himself to Mark. Unlike a heterosexual couple, Mark's US citizenship could not and still can not help Cameron get a legal visa, denying them the equal opportunity to spend of the rest of their lives together as a heterosexual couple could. The only other option would be that Cameron would have to leave the country every 90 days on tourist waiver, simply because same-sex immigration spouses cannot apply for those spousal visas.
WHY THIS IS UNJUST: On Friday, October 5th, the Obama Administration, (as promised Sept. 28th - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/28/same-sex-immigration-reform_n_1924763.html), issued written guidance to immigration officials regarding same-sex relationships. It stated that immigration officials are required to recognize same-sex partners as family members when deciding whether to deport undocumented immigrants. This means that the Obama Administration created this policy to ensure that the deportation of immigrants in same-sex relationships (who pose no security risk) no longer took place. It is important to note that this policy came into effect BEFORE this all happened to Cameron. Therefore, the regulation was in fact intact during the time at which Cameron was deported, which means US Immigration officers did NOT abide by the newly-established policy (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/29/us/homeland-security-puts-it-in-writing-on-immigration-policy-and-gay-couples.html).
