The 2000 law approved visas for victims of violent crimes who cooperate with law enforcement investigations or prosecution of crimes. The visas allowed them to remain in the United States and apply for permanent residency after three years. But regulations detailing how to apply for the U-visa were never published, and no visas have ever been issued. "Congress enacted the law with the dual goal...
