The president of the United States, Joe Biden, celebrated this Thursday the approval of a bill to safeguard unions between people of the same sex at the federal level.

“Today, Congress has taken a fundamental step to ensure that Americans have the right to marry the person they love,” Trump said in a White House statement.

Biden, who has highlighted the consensus among legislators after being approved by 258 votes in favor and 169 against, has assured that this bill “will give peace of mind to millions of LGBT and interracial couples who are now guaranteed the rights (… .) that correspond to them”.

Thus, he has indicated that this measure gives “some security” and provides hope and dignity “knowing that your government will recognize and respect the families they build.”

“We are one step closer in our journey to build a more perfect union. We will never stop fighting for equality for LGBTQI + people and all Americans,” he said after thanking the defenders of the law, “who refused to stop talk out.

With this vote, Biden considers that it has been shown that “it is possible for Democrats and Republicans to come together to safeguard” fundamental rights.

Several dozen Republican congressmen cast their ballots after they won an additional amendment giving religious organizations some leeway. This amendment removes obligations on religious organizations to provide services that support same-sex marriage and ensures that the federal government does not recognize polygamous marriage.

It should be remembered, according to ‘The Hill’, that the measure was already approved last week in the Senate by 61 votes in favor to 36 against after months of negotiations, with the support of 12 Republican senators.
