This study analyzes the relationship between domestic violence (DV) and women's vulnerability and shows how this relationship is directly impacted by an individual's immigration status. This study is done from a qualitative perspective using interviews to conduct the research and was conducted in a DV center. All participants being analyzed were undocumented immigrant women (UIW) living in the southwestern region of the United States, near the U.S.-Mexico border. This thesis provides insight into the hardships and obstacles UIW face when they are in a DV relationship. The benefits of this study will be substantial not only for educational purposes, but for those working with DV victims. This will allow for a better understanding and, most importantly, how to address these obstacles and better serve UIW in a DV relationship.
