Due to expired visa,I sought help from Alberto Alers running Seamens Harvest.He introduced himself as a Yale law grad,told me I'd get sponsorship,had me fill out many forms including an asylum(I'm Jamaican) but said it was to be a "deportation stop order" while my case was pending.I got suspicious afterward,told Alers I didn't want his services.A year+ later(10/11),I was taken off Amtrak & learned that I had been deported in absentia.I told about Alers, found out he'd already been arrested by ICE in 7/11,got my case reopened by proving he got my mail from ICE,but deportation is still pending.I've told my story to 2 ICE officers, they don't need me as a witness in court even though the case is still active. Do I qualify for "U" visa?Mail fraud is one of the 42 counts Alers is charged with.

U Visas require the cooperation of the law enforcement agency that prosecutes the case. If there are many victims, there may be a reluctance or unwillingness to sponsor all victims.
I strongly recommend that you retain a competent and experienced immigration attorney or speak with a Federally certified staff member not for profit immigration advocacy group like Assista.
I agree with attorney Dixler.
