The House version took direct aim at immigrant victims:
The House passed its own version last week stripping out the new provisions, drawing a veto threat from President Barack Obama, who said it didn’t do enough to protect battered immigrants, Native Americans or gays. The White House said in a statement that the House version took “direct aim at immigrant victims of domestic violence and sexual assault” and jeopardized victims by placing them “directly in harm’s way.”
The House now refuses to negotiate over the Senate version of the bill, saying it includes fees associated with visas for immigrant abuse victims and that a clause in the Constitution requires all bills that raise revenue to originate in the House.
