VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) is the Violence Against Women Act. Signed by President Bill Clinton in 1994, this law allowed immigrant victims of domestic violence to apply for immigration status without relying on their abuser. In 2000, the law created the U and T visas as the new forms of immigration benefits for victims of violent crime and human trafficking. The law makes millions of dollars available for the investigation and prosecution of violent crimes against women. In addition, this law also created the Office on Violence Against Women in the Department of Justice.


The T visa is for immigrant victims of human trafficking. Forced labor: when a person is recruited, transported or housed for forced, threatened or deceived labor. The result is that the person provides services in a situation similar to that of slavery or involuntary servitude or debt bondage.
Sexual exploitation: when a minor under 18 years of age is induced into prostitution. And also when a person over that age is recruited, housed or transported and by means of fraud, coercion or force is forced into prostitution. That is, what is known as white slavery.

DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain individuals who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide legal status.
