An immigration reform organization is concerned that a new visa program -- designed for illegal aliens who become crime victims -- might lead to widespread abuse.

The 2000 Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act established what has come to be known as the "U" visa. The program is designed to encourage illegal aliens to report crimes against them in return for the right to remain in the U.S. and eventually apply for permanent residency. After a long delay, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, is finally starting to process those visa requests.
