House Passes Violence Against Women Act That Leaves Out LGBT, Immigrant Protections
During the House debate, Democrats charged that the GOP bill would actually leave victims of domestic violence worse off than they are under current law. Unlike the Senate bill, the House proposal discourages undocumented immigrant women from reporting abuse without the threat of being deported. It also makes it harder for Native American women to seek justice against their abusers, and it leaves out protections for the LGBT community altogether.

And I agree there is a problem with the VAWA.
But I thought there is already laws against All assaults on anybody ?
Assault is assault.
Most are misdemeanors, some are felonies.
