    UAFA: the cartoon

    Posted by: Andoni

    You know a movement has momentum when it starts making cartoons to advance its cause. Bi-national same sex couples who want the law changed so that a US citizen can sponsor his/her same sex foreign born partner just as heterosexual couples can, have made this cartoon to help their cause.

    The legislation is called UAFA (the Uniting Americans Families Act) and is H.R. 1024 and S. 424. It's closing in on 100 co-sponsors in the House. So if you want to help out, call your US Senators and Congressperson and ask them to co-sponsor this legislation. And oh, also tell them that any Comprehensive Immigration Reform legislation isn't really comprehensive uless it includes gay and lesbian families in it.

      Umm... is it meant to sound like a robo-call? Surely we could scrape up a few dollars for live actors (or just any live human beings) to provide the voices?

      That's the style in which they talk, so no. That entire design is meant to be used for satirical purposes, but some people use it for serious communication.

      What dkeller said. Haven't seen a post by Chris in a looooong time. Those "twitters" at left are 3 months old. What gives?
