I wonder... how does one “prove” that one is homosexual to the State Department?
Say I am from Mexico and I have a friend who is an American Citizen. He wants to help me immigrate to the US. Also, suppose we are BOTH HETERO-SEXUAL ( not homosexual ).
All he can do is “marry” me and I am on the road to legal permanent residency status in the US.
After I come here, we can eventually “legally” get a divorce.
What kind of safeguards does America put against this?
Nice to see John Kerry taking care of the important things first at the state department. Maybe next he can investigate why American and Canadian bacon are different. What a joke our country has become.
If you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen, your visa application will be treated equally.

About all I can say is something that goes like this:
“What kind of safeguards does America put against this?”
The same safeguards that exist against “traditional” sham marriages. Interviews of both parties (separately), background checks, etc.
