Overview

One area where the public has great sympathy for extending public benefits is to immigrant victims of trafficking, domestic violence, and other serious crimes. 

  • Florida HB 7181, California SB 1569, and North Carolina SB 1078 all make public social service benefits available to victims of trafficking, domestic violence, and other serious crimes. 
  • Hawaii HCR 204 proposed a resolution to have the state investigate existing obstacles, in statute, rule, or policy, that limit or deny benefits to victims of trafficking and assist such victims in attaining needed services.
