Fighting Labor Trafficking
The risk of labor trafficking is higher in workers who are migratory, relocated, or undocumented. Migrant Legal Aid has discovered, identified, rescued, and legalized many victims (and their family members) from labor trafficking captivity.
Victims of labor trafficking are eligible for a T visa, which allows victims to remain in the U.S. for up to four years and ultimately to adjust their status if they have assisted law enforcement in an investigation or prosecution of labor trafficking.
Migrant Legal Aid offers services to help migrant and seasonal farmworkers receive T visas. Additionally, Migrant Legal Aid can refer victims to local services such as healthcare and counseling.
