Trump administration's decision to block victims

This decision by the administration is a step backward for domestic     violence survivors and families. It sends a message — to immigrants and   to U.S. residents — that you won’t be taken seriously, or that you can   inflict harm, because domestic violence is a “private crime.” This attitude   encourages people to turn a blind eye to violence and suffering and only serves to perpetuate the cycle of domestic violence.

We should be doing everything we can to interrupt this cycle by   protecting everyone who is impacted by domestic violence and providing   a safe and healthy environment.
