For the last two years, the agency has kept a list of same-sex couples whose green card petitions were denied, the officials said, anticipating that the Supreme Court would eventually weigh in on DOMA. Those denials will now be reversed without couples having to present new applications, if no other issues have arisen. Gay couples with no denials, like Mr. Marsh and Mr. Popov, will move through the system at the same pace as traditional spouses, officials said.

I almost have a tear in my eye, from the shock -- I think of Customs and Immigration as rather hostile to foreigners, and here we have them not just avoiding doing harm, but anticipating and creating a chance to do good.
