In August 2020, our legislative priority bill LB 745 amended to LB 512 was signed into law by Governor Pete Ricketts. The bill brings uniformity to law enforcement’s receipt and processing of victims’ requests to certify certain crimes, including sexual assault and human trafficking.
Because of ILC’s advocacy, a client of more than three years was able to apply for U-Visa status, and if the U-Visa application is approved this will provide a pathway to citizenship.
We depend on the generosity of our community to provide high-quality legal services, education, and advocacy for immigrants in need.
