A story in yesterday’s issue of TBA Today mischaracterized the benefits provided by a U Visa, as reported by Nashville Public Radio. This visa is actually a special temporary visa for crime victims, which allows the holder to remain in the United States legally on a temporary basis, but does not automatically grant citizenship. Under certain circumstances, a U Visa can allow the holder to apply for a green card after three years.
