Cumbersome rules plague visas

As an apology to trafficking victims for what happened to them on U.S. soil, Congress created a special visa status allowing those who came here illegally to remain. It’s called “T-visa status” and allows up to 5,000 victims a year to stay in America for up to four years. After three years, they can apply to stay permanently.
