Grant automatic political asylum to gay Russians

The United States has an opportunity to help Russian gays avoid the fate of German Jews in the 1930s. While all gays from countries with harsh anti-gay laws need to be encouraged to apply for asylum, the impending publicity of the Winter Olympics demands a high-profile response to the present uptick in persecution there. Congress should also appropriate funds to help Russian gays resettle in the United States.
