"California Bi-National Couple’s Deportation Postponed"

A married bi-national same-sex couple in California has been saved from deportation by immigration Judge Marilyn Teeter. The federal government has 60 days to decide whether to continue pursuing deportation proceedings against the couple under the Defense of Marriage Act. If it does, she will revisit the case in September 2013, ensuring the couple has at least two more years together. This is the latest in a series of cases where such couples have been protected by judges. (HT: Out4Immigration.)
