It’s so very unfortunate that a few bad apples spoil the bunch. There are so many people who are deserving and want to come to the USA and do not lie, cheat and con an unwilling american into believing they are in love with them.
For every immigrant that cons an american citizen into believing they want a genuine marriage and files a false VAWA application and commits marriage fraud and is found out, there are hundreds more that go under the radar. But, it creates an uneasy atmosphere. It makes it unfair for all the people who are doing it the right way.
For all the women and men who are truly being abused and not just using VAWA as a loophole to get a GreenCard, you are taking time, energy and resources away from someone and maybe a family who genuinely needs them.
