Congress passed the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000 (VTVPA) in order to provide:
Individuals who have been victimized in the most severe fashion with the ability to: remain in the US (temporarily and in some cases longer) and receive federal and state assistance;
Protections for certain crime victims including victims of crimes against women; and
Law enforcement agencies with a comprehensive law that will enable them to pursue the prosecution and conviction of traffickers.
