The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 explicitly exempts companies such as Match.com and AsianFriendFinder.com where one can find thousands of foreign women who join for free with the hope that an American man, who pays for the service, will contact them?

How are the men who use Match.com, AsianFriendFinder.com, and FilipinoFriend Finder.com any different than the men who pay for a women's contact information on the foreign marriage broker websites?

Why did the lawmakers go out of their way to allow this to continue unregulated and not provide the same protection to foreign women who use the larger "mainstream" matchmaking websites? Are they hiding something?

Was some sort of deal worked out with Match.com and others? Clearly, the writers of this law are not be completely genuine to their cause.

We, the undersigned, petition the writers and lawmakers who crafted the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 to enforce the law on all dating websites and companies where American men, by virtue of their paid membership, are able to contact foreign women who joined as non-paying members.
