INA: ACT 212 - GENERAL CLASSES OF ALIENS INELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE VISAS AND INELIGIBLE FOR ADMISSION; WAIVERS OF INADMISSIBILLITY
(10) 15/ MISCELLANEOUS.-
(A) Practicing polygamists.-Any immigrant who is coming to the United States to practice polygamy is inadmissible.
And there you have it.
Granted they might be visitors, but I assume that they would not be signing up on the family form either.
Then its fair at least.
Is that for immigration, though, or for visitors? I could understand not allowing them to immigrate, but not allowing them into your country? Though I understand they would reserve the right to, it just doesn't make sense to me
Doesn't really say anything about Gay couples that I can see in there
Of course, I assume a gay couple could immigrate there, but not as a couple, and it would be harder to immigrate as they'd have to go through as single people, where, IIRC, its would be much easier for them both to immigrate together if they were seen as spouses. That would be irksome, though I assume they do the same to polygamous families, which would be much harder
trying to get several people immigrated to the country
Would someone who had several spouses actually be allowed to immigrate/get a visa, even if none of the spouses were coming with them? So they weren't practicing polygamy in the US anyways?
