Let us hope, at least. From a story in the WaPo, "Immigration overhaul could leave gay couples out," this:
Another Washington gay couple, who requested that their names not be published because the foreign partner is a Latino man currently living in the country under false pretenses and the American partner is a prominent Republican whose identity could easily lead authorities to the other man, said gays and lesbians fall in love in the same unpredictable way as straight people. Sometimes, the object of that love happens to be a foreigner.
Of course there will be much speculation, and Princess Sparkle Pony and Wonkette are already off to the races in fine fashion. But y'never know. Sometimes, one prominent example case can put the spotlight on bigotry affecting tens of thousands of ordinary people.
