Default Is Unfunded Research position Worth it ??

I am an IMG, with no Visa, ( I mean I have the Visa problem). Recently I have been offered an unfunded research position in the field I like to get matched. They can sponsor J1 for me, but there is no funds for me.

I have no idea this opportunity is something great, like a special offer for me? or I just can search and find FUNDED research positions or postdocs?

The benefits of this position would be 1-Visa offering and 2-related field for me, but being unfunded is its disadvantage.

(I have a moderate clinical research background in my country with 4 articles which 2 of them are ISI and 3 of them are Pubmed, with no US research or clinical experience or LORs)
It will start almost after my Step 1.
