GOP opposes Violence Against Women Act because it also protects gay men, lesbians and immigrants
This is because of the new provisions added to the act. If passed, the act would legally protect everyone from domestic violence, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender. It also would protect undocumented immigrants who have been victims of domestic violence, who would otherwise be reluctant to come forward due to the fear of deportation, by increasing the number of visas by 5,000. (It was at 10,000.)
And yet every single Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted against reauthorization of VAWA, which has been in effect since 1994.
I’m not sure what the problem is here. I guess they really do only care about you if you are a white, Republican, Christian, old, straight male.
