Raquel Was Terrified to Report Her Abusive Boyfriend. Texas' SB4 Could Make Things Worse.

Raquel Was Terrified to Report Her Abusive Boyfriend. Texas' SB4 Could Make Things Worse. | Fabulous Feminism | Scoop.it
Yvonne’s problems began several months ago when she started noticing bruises and swellings on the arms, face, and lips of her 16-year-old daughter. Yvonne (not her real name) kept asking her how it happened, but her daughter Raquel (also a pseudonym) offered unconvincing answers. When Yvonne finally figured out what was going on, she was horrified, and she contacted the local police in El Paso. In turn, they notified the County Attorney’s Office, which is responsible for obtaining legal protection for victims of family violence. From there, mention of Raquel’s injuries ended up in a federal court in San Antonio, hundreds of miles away.

Statement of Eleanor Smeal on the Rescission of DACA | Feminist Majority Foundation

Statement of Eleanor Smeal on the Rescission of DACA | Feminist Majority Foundation | Fabulous Feminism | Scoop.it
The Feminist Majority Foundation stands with the 800,000 Dreamers who have built lives here in the United States and contribute to our communities every day. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced for the Trump Administration that it has rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which – even with time for Congress to act – fundamentally uproots the lives of millions of people, disrupts our communities, and potentially ends the dreams of DACA recipients, many of whom were finally able to pursue educational opportunities, start careers, and live their lives freely and in the open. By stripping DACA protections, Trump has made undocumented women even more vulnerable to violence, discrimination, trafficking, and abuse. We must pressure Congress immediately to act and to stop the heartless and mean-spirited rescission of DACA. The Feminist Majority Foundation will do all we can, in solidarity with Dreamers and immigrant rights advocates, to help ensure that Dreamers continue to have the protections guaranteed to them by DACA. Together, we will resist the rising tide of white supremacy that the administration panders to and defend the safety and security of all, regardless of immigration status, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, and/or sexual orientation.
