Immigrants Need Not Fear Reporting Cases of Violence


Many illegal immigrants live in fear of having their non-citizenship exposed. While this is a valid feeling, there is absolutely no reason that any case of violence or abuse should go unrecognized. This is especially true when instances of domestic violence, rape, kidnapping and the like remain unreported because illegal immigrants do not want their status to be discovered.

It is for these very reasons that the U-Visa was created. In order to protect everyone and anyone – including immigrants who may be residing in the United States illegally – this visa was implemented only three years ago and has already helped many victims of crime. The visa allows illegal immigrants to report the crimes that have been committed to their detriment without the concern of being deported. Instead, these individuals are allowed to legally remain in the country while actively assisting law enforcement officials in their pursuit of investigating and convicting the guilty parties.
