Immigration Provisions of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
William A. Kandel (au)
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) includes provisions to assist foreign nationals who have been victims of domestic abuse. These provisions, initially enacted by Congress with the Immigration Act of 1990 and the VAWA of 1994, afford benefits to abused foreign nationals and allow them to self-petition for lawful permanent resident (LPR) status independently of the U.S. citizen or LPR relatives who originally sponsored them. VAWA expired in 2011, but reauthorization bills have been introduced in Congress. Contents of this report: Intro.; How VAWA Provisions Work; Critiques of Immigration Provisions of VAWA: Self-Petitioning Requirements; Concerns About Immigration Benefit Fraud; Current Legislation. Illus. This is a print on demand report.
