Abstract

The TVPA does not sufficiently protect victims, especially victims caught up in large trafficking schemes. From identification of victims by law enforcement or ICE to the ability of the FBI to actually interview every victim to DHS’ willingness to grant Continued Presence to Victims and DOJ to support their T-visa application, victims are presented with barriers that they must overcome in order to pursue justice, receive restitution, gain protection and try to move forward with their lives. These barriers are unnecessary, and damage the TVPA’s mandate to protect victims and prevent trafficking.
