Lawsuit Filed Over Crime Victim Visas

Congress authorized new visas for noncitizens who cooperate with police in investigations of violent crimes.  The rationale seems to be that a noncitizen, faced with the risk of deportation, might instead choose to disappear (See Robert Blake story).  However, no visas have been issued, and no regulations about how to get one; laawyers have now brought a lawsuit.  Story here.
