Local authorities are dealing with it, the problem is it's done poorly as 2.5 American Indian women are victims of abuse to every 1 of all other American women. At some point, we need to give the local authorities more leverage in solving the problem.

In conclusion, you're basically completely wrong, as I figured you would be.
That's the kind of extremely low threshold for federal action that created the fiscally unsustainable entitlement state we live in today.

It's not a problem worthy of spending a single federal penny on. I could name a thousand potentially life threatening issues/situations that threaten the existence of "victims" that don't even begin to rise to the level of a threat to our national existence (or our cultural health) and don't deserve federal attention. To suggest that because it's really bad for the individual victims means the feds need to address it is about as lame an argument as I've ever heard you make.

Lack of immigration enforcement is an obvious example.
