Microsoft Steps Up to Support Immigration Reform Legislation

LGBT Weekly, July 5, 2011

Microsoft Corporation announced support today for the Uniting American Families Act, a measure authored by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy (D) and designed to create immigration law reform for same-sex couples in the United States.

Leahy’s legislation aims to promote greater equality by allowing LGBT Americans to sponsor permanent, same-sex partners in their bid for U.S. citizenship.


Leahy applauded “innovative leaders” like Microsoft Corporation, and championed a philosophy that maintains the strength of the American workforce by making it easier for employees to balance jobs with family.
