To be eligible for U nonimmigrant status (U visa) from the federal
government, a requestor must receive a certification form from a
certifying official attesting that the person has been the victim of certain
criminal activity and has been, is being, or is likely to be helpful to the
detection, investigation, or prosecution of the criminal activity. The bill
sets a required time frame for completion or denial of the certification

request and sets forth the factors that may and may not be considered in
the certification process. The bill also prohibits certain disclosures to
immigration authorities and requires law enforcement to provide crime
victims with information about the U visa.
