Pelosi Letter to Paul Ryan #VAWA
This year’s version House bill sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). expanded the law to allow LE officials to take weapons from domestic abusers who legally can’t own them. The new version also significantly increased funding for rape crisis centers.

...to gain access to the U.S. by citing fears of expanding existing definitions of asylum status to “private violence.”
