In April 2017, the Tahirih Justice Center and a coalition of national organizations sent a survey to the field to learn more about how new immigration policies such as the Executive Orders on immigration enforcement, are impacting survivors of violence.

“So long as the federal government continues down this road there are going to be immigrant women who are going to be hurt.”
