Allow families of US citizens to be legal to be in this United States

We call on you to go beyond political rhetoric about family values and actually support marriages of many thousands of US citizens by promptly implementing the Department of Homeland Security's proposed "Provisional Waivers of Inadmissibilty for Certain Immediate Relatives of U.S. Citizens" rule, published in the Federal Register on January 9,2012 on page 1040. American families should not be forced to choose separation or exile during 1601 processing. The right of United States citizens to marry whom they please should always have been protected by our laws. The sanctity of our American marriages and the value of our American families will be affirmed by promptly implementing this small proposed change in the rules. Taking this little step will benifit not only thousands of US citizens and their families but also this great country of ours, by bringing immigration policy a little more into line with common sense American values. The husbands ,wives and children of US citizens are legally eligible for green cards. We should not have to choose between life as outlaws or exiles because the immigration system fails us: fix it , Please                                                                                   Sincerely, Kelley E. Martinez
