Philadelphia Inquirer Article on the U Visa Backlog
ASISTA’s own Amy Cheung weighing in on the heavy backlog with the U Visa program which Congress created to strengthen the ability of police agencies to investigate and prosecute violent crimes like domestic & sexual assault.
“Biden’s plan to raise the cap to 30,000 is a promising start but given the immense backlog, there is still more work to be done.”
ASISTA is committed to working with the new administration to make sure the program is working as the government intended, and that immigrant survivors of crime are protected. See article here.
