Anti-Immigrant GOP Bill Threatens Victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking

"I am especially troubled by the impact this bill will have on our country’s most vulnerable and isolated populations."

By - Jul 23rd, 2015 04:21 pm

“The passage of the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act, H.R. 3009, is another victory for House Republicans in their national efforts to pursue an anti-immigrant and discriminatory agenda. Policies like this fail to address the issues surrounding our fractured immigration system and only serve to punish states and local municipalities that support effective and lawful community policing strategies.

“In addition to the contemptuous nature of the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act, I am especially troubled by the impact this bill will have on our country’s most vulnerable and isolated populations.  This legislation would withhold vital crime prevention funding from ‘sanctuary cities’ which have decided to focus their limited resources on making their communities safer rather than policing federal immigration laws. Unfortunately, we know all too well that these types of policies directly undermine the carefully-built trust between police and immigrant communities – pushing victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking deeper into the shadows.  These victims are in need of a lifeline, but sadly, House Republicans are more concerned with riling up the most xenophobic elements of their base rather than helping those who have been forced into the shadows.

“As the leading voice in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), I find it abhorrent that the House has passed a bill that will undoubtedly undercut the protections of VAWA and endanger immigrant survivors and their children. I strongly urge my Senate colleagues to vote against this bill.”
