Meet 1st gay couple likely to receive a green card if DOMA is struck down

Catriona and Cathy, mothers to three kids, are likely to be the first gay binational couple (one is American, one is an Irish national) to receive a green card should the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) be struck down by the Supreme Court at 10am today.


More on their story from the YouTube page:

¬†Boulder, CO: Cathy and Catriona met in 2006 while trekking in the Himalayas. Now mothers to a son from Guatemala and two daughters from Haiti, they were devastated earlier this year when Cathy’s second work visa was denied. All they knew was that they would do anything to keep their family together despite the unjust Defense of Marriage Act that threatens to tear them apart. Cathy and Caitriona married in May, 2012. Their green card application can only be approved if DOMA is struck down by the Supreme Court.
