BACKGROUND:

U.S. Senate Republicans and Democrats just introduced competing bills to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and neither version closes the dangerous immigration loopholes victimizing American constituents.


VAWA sunsets – or expires – every five years in order for lawmakers to “tweak” the legislation.  At the last reauthorization in 2013, sunset provisions were ignored concerning immigration loopholes issuing fast-tracked green cards and citizenship to any foreigner claiming to be an abuse or crime victim.


These special green cards are issued without evidence, investigations or interviews, and can’t be revoked by trained immigration investigators in the event of fraud or national security concerns.


These dangerous loopholes also waive criminal activities and inadmissibility within the immigration process making them highly coveted by criminals, fraudsters, national security risks and those previously denied immigration benefits.


Congressional leadership has long known about widespread immigration fraud perpetuated by VAWA loopholes and has refused to protect American constituents:

2006: Groups of U.S. citizen constituents started visiting D.C. congressional offices about loopholes allowing foreigners to get a quick path to citizenship by making flimsy, unsubstantiated allegations









2011: Julie Poner testified at well-publicized Senate Judiciary Committee hearing about abusive Czech husband that claimed abuse to successfully halt his pending deportation (invited by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA))

2012: Whistleblower Elena Maria Lopez first discovered and warned congressional leadership (including Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA)) about clusters of national security cases tied to VAWA loopholes

2013: Advocacy groups funded by VAWA grants pushed for congress to ignore sunset provisions on fast-tracked green cards, citizenship; Loopholes made permanent law by congress, president

2016: FBI contacted Lopez for her growing cluster of national security cases using VAWA loopholes to hide criminal activities, national security risks, fraud within immigration process

2017: Lopez testified before Senate Judiciary Committee about her personal case: her abusive Dutch husband used VAWA to waive his inadmissibility and well-documented criminal activities in green card process (invited by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA))

2017: Dr. Jamal Hussain of California testified about fiancé fraudulently using VAWA to stay in country; Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-NY) introduced Hussain at hearing

2018: Lopez twice met to White House advisors to present growing cluster of national security cases and possible avenues to catch fraudsters

2018 & 2019: Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chuck Schumer (D-NY)Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), John Cornyn (R-TX), Marco Rubio (R-FL) constituents presented personal immigration fraud and national-security cases with DC staff/counsel; Sen. Joni Ernst’s (R-IA) chief counsel presented national security cases; All senators refused to close loopholes

2019: Justice Department indicted one man responsible for an astounding 1,800 fraudulent VAWA applications; investigations spurred by 2018 White House meetings

2019: Congressional investigators admitted to widespread fraud in the VAWA immigration program and revealed the DHS has absolutely no fraud controls; Investigation requested by former Senate Judiciary chair Sen. Grassley (R-IA) and officially submitted to current Senate Judiciary chair  Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC); investigation spurred by whistleblowing of Lopez and Victims of Immigration Fraud (VOIF)

 

  • Many constituents thrown in jail and forced to pay exorbitant legal fees to prove innocence
  • Others lost jobs, security clearances and custody of children based on a single, uninvestigated allegation made for quick green card
  • Many American victims found foreigner had been engaged in bigamy, prostitution, drug running and other criminal activities; VAWA’s provisions granted waivers of inadmissibility or criminal activities
