It is evident from recent studies that a woman's citizenship status does not exempt her from exposure to partner violence. The purpose of this article was to examine if social support, self-efficacy, and marginalization of abused women differ based on U.S. born compared to non-U.S. born with and without documentation. The findings suggest that women who were born in the United States had significantly higher self-efficacy scores compared to non-U.S.-born women without documents. There were no significant differences in social support among abused women who are U.S. born compared to non-U.S. born with and without documentation. In addition, women who were not born in the United States and did not have documents had higher marginalization.

Es evidente a partir de estudios recientes que el estatus de ciudadanía de la mujer no la exime de la exposición a la violencia de pareja. El propósito de este documento es examinar si el apoyo social, auto-eficacia y marginalización de la mujer maltratada son diferentes basado en tener o no tener ciudadanía estadunidense. Los hallazgos sugieren que las mujeres que nacieron en los EE. UU. tenían puntuaciones significativamente más altas de autoeficacia en comparación con las mujeres no nacidas en Estados Unidos sin documentos. No existen diferencias significantes en apoyo social entre las dos clases y definitivamente la mujer sin documentos legales proyecta niveles más altos de marginalización.
