    Gay Illegal Immigrants Demand Special Treatment From Obama
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...tion-protecti/


    Gay immigrants are mounting a campaign to demand that they be included in any unilateral moves President Obama makes this year to halt deportations, arguing that they face unusual circumstances that otherwise might leave them on the outside.

    The demands pose a tricky test for Mr. Obama, who has made major inroads with gay rights groups during his time in the White House, but who will have to draw lines somewhere as he seeks to craft a more lenient deportation policy without canceling deportations altogether.

    “We hope that he evolves and he gets it right, and he can push for the broadest deferred action or administrative relief as possible,” said Jorge Gutierrez, an activist who made the case last week in an op-ed for the Washington Blade, a leading newspaper for gays.

    ...the 2012 policy for dreamers excludes immigrants with major criminal records, and gay rights activists fear if Mr. Obama keeps those restrictions in place, it would end up excluding many members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community who, because of their lifestyles, end up with higher rates of criminal records, Mr. Gutierrez said.

    Is he saying that gays have more criminal records than straight people do? What is his basis for that statement?
    The price of freedom is something the protected will never know.

    Yes. The idea is that sodomy is still illegal in other countries and, as a result, homosexuals have more arrests (for sexual behavior) than other people.

    I thought the reference to the dreamers was related to a criminal record in this Country.

    Ah, I see. You know, I'm not sure now.
