NACARA relief provides permanent resident status to certain nationalities through legislation passed in 1997 (Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act) and 2000 (Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000).
Section 203 of NACARA applies to some individuals from Guatemala, El Salvador, and nationals of former Soviet bloc countries who came to the country on or before certain dates, as well as completed any applications for asylum. They could have also registered for benefits under American Baptist Churches (ABC)v. Thornburgh.
Once Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (VTVP) was passed in October of 2000, NACARA §203 relief was further expanded for family members and some individuals who had been subjected to violence / cruelty by a U.S. citizen, LPR, or even a NACARA §203 beneficiary.
