USA: Same Sex Immigration Bill to Be Reintroduced Tuesday

US House Rep. Jerrold NadlerRep. Jerrold Nadler will reintroduce immigration legislation to allow gay and lesbian spouses to sponsor their partners for a green card. LGBTQ Nation reports:

The legislation, known as the Uniting American Families Act, is expected to be introduced in the U.S. House but not the Senate, according to two sources familiar with the bill. Although information on co-sponsors wasn’t immediately available, the bill is expected to have bipartisan support. Last year, the bill found support from Reps. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) and Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) in the lame duck session of Congress in addition to the 145 Democrats who supported the bill.

With Harry Reid announcing his support yesterday, maybe this has a chance?
