Congressman Gallego on Obergefell v. Hodges Decision
Washington, DC – Today the United States Supreme Court handed down a landmark decision in support of marriage equality. Congressman Ruben Gallego released the following statement:
“I applaud the Supreme Court's decision in the Obergefell v. Hodges case. We can finally say that same sex marriage is the law of the land. It is truly a great day in America. Today we can stand tall and proud knowing that equality prevailed and discrimination can no longer hide behind the rule of law.
“Today's Supreme Court ruling recognizes what we've known all along – that LGBT Americans like all Americans have the right to marry who they love and enjoy the protections that come with marriage.”
