Interlineated HR 5331 Violence Against Immigrant Women Act of 2012 (May 7, 2012, Interlineation June 5, 2021) [pdf]

This document is an interlineated version of The Violence Against Immigrant Women Act of 2012, which was introduced by Representative Jan Schakowsky on May 7, 2012 in the 112th Congress, 2nd Session, HR 5331. HR 5331 contains a myriad of legislative provisions that, if enacted as law, would dramatically improve legal protections for immigrant women and children who have been victims of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking, child abandonment, child neglect or a range of other violent crimes committed against them in the United States. This interlineated version of HR 5331 is marked up with strike-throughs. The text that is crossed out in red indicates the amendments that are no longer needed, because they have already been passed—either in law or through policy—in the years since this bill was first introduced in 2012.
