“Victim visas” available for abused Muslim women

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 19, 2012

Oh brother, what other visa programs do we have that we don’t know about (yet)?

There are a couple of messages in this story to ponder.

First, no doubt we feel sympathy for Muslim women abused by the men in their lives.   But, is it our duty to save each and every one whose husband, brother or father thinks ‘his’ woman has not behaved properly according to their ‘faith?’

And, take note that we are importing this behavioral mindset to the US every day through myriad legal immigration programs, including refugee resettlement, when we admit immigrants from Muslim countries?   Who will save the women when the US is paralyzed by pressure from multiculturalists urging us to respect diversity.  Believe it or not, we have occasionally heard ‘cultural relativism’ arguments that go like this—-who are we to say female genital mutilation is an evil practice?

Now, hat tip David, here is the story from Al Arabiya entitled, ‘Saudi women get U.S. ‘victim visas’ following family disputes‘:

Five Saudi women living in the United States replaced their student visas with “victim visas” following disputes with male members of their families.

The women, whose change of status renders them ineligible for financial support from Saudi Cultural Bureau in Washington DC, were accompanying their families to the United States and went to court after they got into fights with their husbands or brothers, the Saudi edition of al-Hayat newspaper quoted a source from the bureau as saying.

One of those women, the source explained, is a student currently living with her children in an orphanage because of a dispute with her husband.

After the American court with which she filed a complaint ruled in her favor, she was not able to go back to her husband and since there were no guarantees of her safety if she returns to Saudi Arabia, she preferred to stay in the United States. She is now financially supported by the American government.

Let me know, if any of you find out which agency administers “victim visas!”

      Thanks Creeping, I saw it and its in my list to post….all the participants are Soros protegees and the Weekly Standard might seem surprised by this meeting, but I’m not. I think people like Bill Kristol still doesn’t get what is happening in America with Muslim immigration.

    I think they are getting ‘U’ visas. These visas are an add-on to VAWA the Violence Against Women Act.

    About 60,000 Saudi students have enrolled in U.S. universities since 2005


  4. When will visas be given to the Copts? They are and have been tortured, raped, kidnapped and murdered, had their homes and churches burned out while they occupied them. The latest word out of Egypt is that they’ve been stripped naken and crucified on the streets of Cairo.

    Who needs the visas more?
