English Version

The former president of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, is now in charge of the new UN agency that fights for the rights of women around the world and one of her priorities is to fight against domestic violence and sexual abuse against women.

This is important to Latinos living in The United States, not only because she is Latina, but because she represents hope for all undocumented Latino women victims of crime. Many come to this country running away from violence in their countries of origin due to the lack of protection from their local authorities. However, when they arrived to this country, they have to face the immigration issue that place them in risk due to deportation procedures or because they are afraid to denounce their aggressors to the police due the the fear of deportation.

No we can count with the support of this great woman, she can advocate on our behalf to stop the deportation of many women who may be killed as soon as they are back to their countries of origin and also to advocate for a law that protects immigrant women victims of violence from being deported as a result of calling the police to denounce their aggresors in this country.

Michele Bachelet is the hope for all undocumented immigrant women in this country that suffer domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking.  She is a true Latino pride!
