Erika Cisneros | Humanitarian Visas: The Stories and Options for Victims of Abuse

Immigration attorney Erika Cisneros joins the podcast.

Immigrating to the US and becoming a legal and permanent resident can be confusing and time consuming. And for victims of mistreatment it can seem like an impossible dream. But there is hope for immigrants—a humanitarian visa. Erika's new book Honest Immigration shares real-life stories of people who didn’t realize their personal and work-related mistreatment met the requirements to get a humanitarian visa.

In this episode we cover:

  • Steps you can take if you are the victim of a violent crime, sexual abuse, human trafficking, domestic violence, among others. 
  • Know when your immediate family members or children are able to get a humanitarian visa…and when they aren’t. 
  • Why the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Applies to Men and Women and how it can help you with Immigration
