Republicans block Violence Against Women Act as it also helps intolerables
The VAWA, originally passed in 1994 and reauthorized twice since, provides funding to local communities to improve their response to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. The federal grants from the law support law enforcement training, victim services, transitional housing, and legal assistance.
Republicans oppose the current reauthorization bill because it would allow battered undocumented immigrants to claim temporary visas and expand protections to same sex couples.
I have no idea how these despicable people can claim any sort of moral high ground. Sure we could help millions of American women who are victims of terrible violence and abuse but then someone we don’t like might also be helped. FUCK THAT!
I really, really wish you assholes would wake up.
