Support SB3007: The Survivor Support and Trafficking Prevention Act
by Kimberly DrewMar 18, 2016
Foreign-born victims of trafficking, torture and other serious crimes are eligible to legalize their immigration status and obtain employment authorization but the process may take months or even years. During this time, when a victim is leaving their trafficking situation or seeking safety, they are highly vulnerable to further exploitation and harm. Victims of trafficking, torture and other serious crimes desperately need a safe place to live, adequate food, immediate attention to their physical and mental health needs, and an opportunity to stabilize their lives as they cooperate with law enforcement, adjust their immigration status, and obtain work authorization.
