Resolution 196-01: Urging Adoption of the Permanent Partner Immigration Act


In this Resolution, File No. 010379, the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco urges the United States Congress to adopt the "Permanent Partner Immigration Act," which would add the term "permanent partner" to sections of immigration law that provide immigration rights to legally married couples and would allow gay and lesbian citizens to sponsor their partners as U.S. residents.
