LGBT couples are being separated at the U.S.-Mexico border

Tennessee residents will likely be aware that thousands of Central American migrants have entered the United States in recent months hoping to be granted asylum. Some of these migrants are LGBT couples who are fleeing persecution and violence in countries where they are not permitted to marry or enter into civil unions. These couples are usually separated when they make their petitions for asylum because U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services policy only allows couples to remain together while they wait for a hearing if they can produce a civil union or marriage certificate.

Since the tightening of immigration rules at the beginning of the Trump administration, it has become more difficult for ballroom dance studios in Tennessee and other states to hire the instructors they need. Even when studios have found the right applicants, deportations and other processes have stymied the hiring process. Since the most popular ballroom dance forms are foreign, hiring instructors from overseas is often necessary.
