Have you seen the picture of a smiling George W. Bush signing the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act thats circulating around social media? The caption at the bottom reads Conservatives accuse Obama of following the law. Once again, George Bush is getting the blame.
Thats not the whole story (of course). Heres the rest. The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act was passed and signed into law in October 2000 by Bill Clinton.
Some provisions of the original law include: the Attorney General and Secretary of State make the regulations for law enforcement personnel and immigration officials.
victims receive medical care and assistance
providing protection including not disclosing the names and identifying information of the aliens to the public
federal law enforcement may permit aliens to remain in the US after an assessment that the individual is a victim of a severe form of trafficking and a potential witness to that trafficking.
the law gives great discretion for determining the aliens status to the Attorney General including authorizing the alien to work in the US and providing an employment authorized endorsement or other appropriate work permit.
Funding for the victims portion of the law was for two years, thus it had to be reauthorized in 2003, 2006 and 2008. On March 7, 2013, the law as an amendment to the Violence Against Women Act was signed by none other than President Barrack Obama.
Really BAD law passed by Dem congress and signed by Bush
yes Bush signed it
but BO ignores laws every day
and now all of a sudden THIS law is sacrosanct?
only so that Piece of chit can blame Bush
You’re not a failure until you blame someone else for your failures.
