There is special consideration in the U.S. immigration system for victims of human trafficking. You may be able to get a T Visa if you are a victim of trafficking.

The U. S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement system created the T-Visa to grant immigration relief to victims of this terrible crime. Human trafficking, also known as trafficking in persons, is another name for modern-day slavery. Traffickers lure individuals to the United States with false promises of employment and a better life. They generally will provide a way to smuggle their victims across the border.

Once the victims are in the U.S. the traffickers assert control over their them with coercion and threats. They are forced into harsh labor conditions or sexual slavery.

Individuals and their families may also fall victim to many other types of crime in the United States. These crimes include: rape, murder, manslaughter, domestic violence, sexual assault, and many others.
