“Alicia” was a victim of victim of domestic violence whose husband beat her nearly to the point of unconsciousness in front of their two young children and tried to run over the family with his vehicle when they returned home to get clothes and shoes. Through the efforts of Justice For Our Neighbors of Tennessee, she was able to get a Victim of Crime visa, enabling her to better provide for her two children and prevent her abuser from threatening further harm because of her immigration status.

Estefan came to the United States with his mother in 2004.  After her death, Estefan was alone in a strange land without identification or immigrant documentation.  Through Justice For Our Neighbors of Tennessee, Estefan has applied for Special Immigrant juvenile Status.  Now 16, he is most excited about getting a drivers license.
