U and T Visas for Immigrant Victims of Crime and Trafficking: Best Practices in Responding to, Investigating and Prosecuting Cases Involving Immigrant Crime Victims

Event Date
Wednesday, December 13, 2023, 01:00PM


Immigrant victims of crime are often reluctant to call police for help or to participate in the criminal justice process. In cases involving domestic and sexual violence the barriers are compounded, as victims often face immigration-related abuse and threats of deportation.


This training will provide law enforcement, prosecutors, and system-based advocates with information on the U and T visa programs, including how these programs enhance victim and community safety by increasing victim participation in the criminal justice process and ultimately holding offenders accountable.


You will learn what you can do when you receive requests for certification in the context of victim and offender dynamics, as well as pretrial and trial strategies to counter common defenses in cases involving immigrant victims of crime.
