Congressman Carson's Statement on Passage of the Violence Against Women Act

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman André Carson released today the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Violence Against Women Act:

Today, the victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse and dating violence were granted the support and protection they so rightly deserve. After months of contention and House G.O.P. attempts to weaken the legislation, cooler heads prevailed, and the strong, bipartisan version of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) now makes its way to the President's desk.

All victims of domestic and sexual violence deserve the protections outlined in the VAWA, regardless of immigration status, race or sexual orientation. I'm proud to have supported the VAWA and encouraged that -- at least in this case -- Congress took steps to thwart discrimination in this country.
