Illegal immigrant gets U Visa

A local Philadelphia man and illegal immigrant was shot during a burglary. As a reward for helping the police during the investigation, the man received a U Visa.  A U visa allows illegal immigrants to work legally in the US for four years if they are a crime victim. After three years, the immigrant can apply for a green card. The purpose of U Visas is to address the increased risk of violence and exploitation that illegal immigrants face and help police catch their offenders.
