Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) commented today on the federal appeals court ruling finding elements of the Defense of Marriage Act to be unconstitutional:

"Today's ruling is yet another important milestone in our journey toward a more perfect union. The Court's ruling makes clear that the time for repealing the Defense of Marriage Act is long past due. This backward thinking, discriminatory law remains a barrier to justice and should be eliminated."
