Abstract:

Abstract: The purpose of this project was to conduct an in-depth policy analysis of the U nonimmigrant status (U-visa) provision, enacted under P.L. No. 106-386, Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (VTVPA) of 2000. This analysis examined the social problem of domestic violence, particularly among immigrant women. The objectives and implementation of the U-visa were discussed and the intended effects and limitations of this provision were explored. Overall, the findings suggest that the U-visa increases the allocation of resources, services, and rights to immigrant women who experience domestic violence. In contrast, the unintended effects of the implementation of this provision include the lengthy processing periods and the inconsistent application of the U-visa by law enforcement agencies. Social workers have an obligation to bridge the gap between women who experience domestic violence and the institutional systems in which they live by taking an active role in advocating for policy reform.
