T Visas for Crime Victims
February 20, 2014
T Visas for Crime VictimsThis 90 minute audio seminar was presented live on February 20, 2014, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time.
Since 2000, the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) has given crime victims T visa protection. Eligibility limitations to the crimes of sex trafficking and forced labor often discourages advocates from pursuing T visa relief in favor of the more expansive array of qualifying crimes under the U visa. However, the U visa can present its own perils, often making the T visa a more powerful alternative tool for crime victims. Learn about T visa myths and misconceptions that lead practitioners to ignore the T visa. Join our panel of experts as they discuss strategies for successful outcomes.
