SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 202 of the William Wilberforce 
Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (WWTVPRA), 
Public Law 110-457, mandated that the Secretary of State, in 
consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Attorney 
General, and the Secretary of Labor, develop an information pamphlet on 
legal rights and resources for aliens applying for employment- or 
education-based nonimmigrant visas. Working closely with the Department 
of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Justice (DOJ), the 
Department of Labor (DOL), and the Department of Health and Human 
Services (HHS), and in consultation with non-governmental organizations 
(NGOs) with expertise on the legal rights of workers and victims of 
severe forms of trafficking in persons, the Department of State has 
completed this pamphlet, which is posted online at http://
Travel.State.gov/ and which will shortly be posted on the Web sites of 
U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide. The pamphlet, to be 
distributed to applicants applying for certain employment- or 
education-based nonimmigrant visa classifications, as provided in the 
WWTVPRA, notifies nonimmigrant workers in the United States of their 
rights and gives them resources in the event they fall victim to abuse 
or human trafficking. The pamphlet represents a major step in the 
Department's efforts to combat human trafficking and labor rights 
violations. The Department of State has sent the pamphlet to its 
partners at DHS, DOJ, DOL, and HHS and would like to let all agencies, 
NGOs, foreign labor brokers, and other interested persons know that the 
information is now available and may be copied and provided to other 
parties.

    Dated: July 7, 2009.
Janice L. Jacobs,
Assistant Secretary for Consular Affairs, Department of State.
