Bush Signs President's Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Legislation (tags)

Within the legislation is a directive to lift the HIV travel/immigration ban, which bars foreign travelers with HIV/AIDS from entering the United States unless they obtain a spouse or family waiver. That ban is blatantly discriminatory, particularly against gay men and lesbians with the illness, because under current US immigration law, their partners do not qualify as spouses or family.

After all that has transpired, is it not clear that this administration and the neocon cabal which drives it shares not one thread of the human decency so evident in DC today? We have no choice but to stop them."
