My Family Spans Three Countries

America is a country of immigrants. My wife is Australian, I’m a US citizen and we live in the Netherlands. Our grandchildren are Dutch citizens. Our elderly parents, 91 and 88 years old, live in Australia and America.

For 13 years my wife was prevented from living with me in America by the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a discriminatory law that was declared unconstitutional in 2013.

I don’t want a wall separating my family or any other family.
