Stop pushing survivors into the shadows.

These letters ask our Senators and Representatives to oppose Amendments and Provisions that seek to induce certain jurisdictions qualified as "sanctuary cities" for immigrants to intertwine Law Enforcement and the Immigration systems.  Immigrant survivors are already afraid of reporting abuse to the police for fear of being deported. The merging of the two systems will further push these survivors into the shadows by increasing their fear of reporting abuse to the police. It will also defeat the Congressional purpose of creating safer communities by encouraging victims to come forward, which is explicit in the bipartisan bill Violence Against Women Act.
