Married Couple Bradford Wells and Australian Anthony John Makk Launch Appeal Against DOMA Deportation Case

Earlier this month we reported how our “staunch ally” the Obama administration decided to continue to enforce the discriminatory immigration sections of DOMA . The administration announced that it was denying immigration rights to Bradford Wells & Anthony John Makk. Wells & Makk were legally married in Massachusetts in 2004, but thanks to DOMA their marriage is not federally recognized. Makk, who is a native of Australia, is Wells’ primary care-giver; Wells suffers from AIDS and has been ordered to leave the country.

Today Bradford and Thomas talked with Thomas Roberts and informs them that they have launched an appeal of their case.
