Anti-immigration Republican sheriff in relationship with undocumented gay man

I haven’t even had a chance to say anything about this case and Paul Babeu is already in damage-control mode.

He was a campaign staffer for a candidate who’s antigay, and he was a prominent anti-immigration activist who was in a relationship with an undocumented resident. If anything, this should bring hope: even the most hateful among us can’t deny their humanity, and their humanity is focused on bringing people together, not pulling them apart.

As an immigrant myself, I wonder about what it takes to be in a relationship with someone who is so prominently working against your aspirations.
