Entry Denied is a documentary about the struggles with U.S. immigration faced by gay and lesbian Americans in relationships with foreign citizens. Under the current Immigration Law, an American citizen can sponsor their spouse or “qualifying” family member for immigration benefits. Because of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as the union between a man and a woman, even same-sex couples who legally married in U.S. states or foreign countries are not able to obtain immigration status based on their marriage. Americans in bi-national relationship are faced with the options of having their relationship torned apart, or to exile to another country where they might be able to live legally together. There are an estimated 42,000 bi-national couples currently living in the United States. Many others have been forced to move to another country. Entry Denied follows the lives and struggles of three of these couples.
