Immigrants Often See Peril in Reporting Domestic Abuse

Los Angeles Times: Though Los Angeles County law enforcement agencies and community organizations have made advances in responding to domestic violence in immigrant communities, attorneys and advocates say many victims still face obstacles in reporting abuse and seeking help. Language barriers, financial dependence and lack of information keep victims from coming forward. And those here illegally worry about being sent back to their native countries. Many victims do not know that they may be eligible for special visas for victims of crime and domestic violence.
