Immigration Options for Victims of Crime


Many immigrants are fearful of admitting that they have been a victim of a crime in part because they believe they will be removed (deported) from the United States if they report the crime. U.S. law provides several protections for legal and undocumented immigrants who have been victims of a crime. There are specific protections for victims of domestic violence, victims of certain crimes, and victims of human trafficking.

The information sheets below are provided in multiple languages and are a source of information for law enforcement, healthcare providers, and other front-line workers.
