Legal Momentum Challenges Food Assistance Termination for Legal Immigrants

Immigrant women are more likely to confront poverty, violence and exploitation than any other demographic in America.  While apparently gender-neutral, our national immigration policies often place women at a disadvantage, compromising their personal and economic security.

Legal Momentum, represented by Kaye Scholer LLP, has filed an amicus curiae brief in the state of Washington, in support of a plaintiff with legal immigrant status who was battered by her spouse and struggled to find independence due to the termination of government funded food assistance for immigrants. Battered women, like the plaintiff, are be forced to stay in or return to abusive relationships due to lack of financial support. Learn more about the Immigrant Women Program.
