Many immigrants are fearful of admitting they have been a victim of a crime, in part,  because they believe they will be deported from the United States if they report the crime.  U.S. law provides several protections for legal and undocumented immigrants who have been victims of a crime.  There are specific protections for victims of domestic violence, victims of certain crimes, and victims of human trafficking.
