Immigrant Resource Library: National Latin@ Network

“The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) includes important protections for immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking. It is well known that abusers often use a victim’s lack of immigration status as a tactic of abuse – threatening to report them to ICE and have them deported. Similarly, it is extremely common for abusers to tell immigrant survivors that if they reach out for help from the police or the courts, then they will be arrested and separated from their families.
