U.S. to expand work permits for immigrants who are crime victims
WASHINGTON, June 14 (Reuters) – A new U.S. immigration policy announced on Monday will expand access to work permits and deportation relief to some immigrants who are crime victims while their visa cases are pending.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will create a process that could allow tens of thousands of applicants for U visas to receive work permits if their claims are deemed to be made in good faith and without the intention of defrauding the immigration system, the agency said.
Reuters first reported the news earlier on Monday.
