"The time is long overdue to repeal this unjust and sweeping policy that deems HIV positive individuals inadmissible to the United States. This law emerged out of fear and stigma, and there remains no public health rationale for treating HIV more harshly than other communicable diseases. We salute the leadership of Senators Kerry and Smith and urge Congress to end this draconian policy," - Joe Solmonese, president, Human Rights Campaign.
My personal thanks to Senators Kerry, Smith, Lugar and Biden. C'mon, Madam Speaker. More information on the travel ban here.
