Pelosi Calls for Public’s Action in Immigration Reform

 
Democratic House minority leader Nancy Pelosi said at a Oct. 4 women’s conference in New York City that she supported the federal immigration reform law in part because of the impact immigration laws have on women.  She encouraged the audience to participate in local rallies over the weekend and the national rally for immigration reform on Oct. 8.
The anti-immigrant laws resulted in many immigrant women struggling between supporting their family and raising their children and left them more vulnerable to domestic violence and deportation. 
Pelosi was joined by House members Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Nydia Velazquez (D-NY). The representatives also called for support for the Equal Rights Amendment, the Pay Equity Act, the New York State Family Leave Insurance Bill and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

We commonly say that a woman ‘was raped,’” said Garcia-Rojas. “But the use of passive tense in this way does two things: first, it makes the rapist invisible; second, it fails to make explicit that there was a person responsible for sexually assaulting the victim.
