USCIS must do more to protect immigrant survivors

On April 7, 2020, ASISTA supplemented its initial letter to USCIS regarding its recommendations in light of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) global pandemic. Immigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and other serious crimes already face myriad barriers accessing services and assistance, and these barriers have been exacerbated during this unprecedented emergency. We call on USCIS to take additional steps to ensure that survivors can fully access protections during this COVID-19 crisis.
