Why would they include illegal aliens in this?

They shouldn't be here to *have* violence committed against them on U.S. soil. If they followed our laws and were the "good" people they claim, they would be in their own countries and thus 100% not having violence committed against them here.

All this does is give illegal aliens another way to scam the system and claim they had violence committed against them. Stay home and you won't have to worry about it here. Complain to your own country.
Good Question

Illegal alien criminals use this law to get a green card. One illegal calls the law and claims the other illegal beat them up and then they use the loophole in the Violence Against Women Act to get a green card. Or they marry a U.S. citizen and call the law on them and claim they beat them up and use the loophole to get a green card...all the while, laughing at U.S. citizens and our laws.

Deportation, not legalization, of illegal alien criminals...as all are criminals!!!

"But if Republican lawmakers are not eager to oppose a domestic violence bill, conservative activists are itching for a fight. Janice Shaw Crouse, a senior fellow at the conservative Concerned Women for America, said her group had been pressing senators hard — especially Judiciary Committee members — to oppose any reauthorization of legislation she called “a boondoggle” that vastly expands government and “creates ideology that all men are guilty and all women are victims.”

Last month on the conservative website Townhall.com , conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly called the Violence Against Women Act a slush fund “used to fill feminist coffers” and demanded that Republicans stand up against legislation that promotes “divorce, breakup of marriage and hatred of men.”

Hey republicans...surprise surprise!
I agree with the right on this one.
