(James/U.S. -- Julio/Colombia) -- CA: When Julio was 16-years old, his mom brought him to the United States from Colombia in search of a better life. Five years later, he met James, and they fell in love. A few years into their relationship, Immigration officials caught up with him and attempted to deport him. It is James and Julio's hope that being married, as they always knew they would one day be, will afford them the green card to remain together in the U.S.
