It is important for attorneys and advocates working with immigrant domestic violence/sexual assault survivors to understand what the anticipated changes in immigration policy might mean for the individuals and families they serve.  For this reason, this post-election Q &A was prepared to explain how the anticipated changes may effect immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual assault. This is very much a working document that will be updated if/when we learn more about specific policy proposals.  This document was prepared in collaboration with Americans for Immigrant Justice; Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence; ASISTA Immigration Assistance; Casa de Esperanza: National Latin@ Network; Center for Gender & Refugee Studies; Freedom Network USA; Immigrant Legal Resource Center; Immigration Center for Women and Children (ICWC); Julie Marzouk Assistant Clinical Professor, Dale E. Fowler School of Law at Chapman University; Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women; National Immigrant Justice Center; Tahirih Justice Center; We Belong Together.
