This webinar is a primer on immigration laws and regulations for advocates serving Asian survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. It provides a basic introduction to U.S. immigration law and the paths to citizenship, the remedies available to immigrant domestic violence or sexual assault survivors–particularly VAWA protections, battered spouse waivers, and U-Visas–and the rights that all immigrants have, and should know when encountering an ICE officer.
