Policy Changes Means Married San Francisco Gay Man May Not Be Deported After All

In a decision announced last week, the Obama administration has changed its deportation policies so that each of the 300,000+ pending deportations must be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine which cases to pursue and which to ignore on the basis of family relationships, criminal history and other factors.

That’s good news for Bradford Wells, a U.S. citizen, and his spouse of seven years, Anthony John Makk, a citizen of Australia. The San Francisco couple have been in a committed relationship for 19 years and married in Massachusetts 7 years ago. Makk’s visa is set to expire on August 25th.
