US citizenship fuels same sex-marriage debate

Only heterosexual foreign spouses receive US citizenship under current law.

    Arguments for and against same-sex marriage are being heard at the US Supreme Court.

    One burning issue is that of citizenship, since under current law heterosexual marriages give foreign spouses US citizenship, while gay partners can find themselves being deported.
