These should be the easy cases to take out of the deportation queue (assuming there are no criminal issues). Congress still has not righted this wrong and we're still waiting on the courts to declare the offensive Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.

They do have the option of at least stopping deportation proceedings in all these cases under the new prosecutorial discretion policy. So why is this still happening?
