District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson in Washington, DC, said on September 27 that the government could not expand fast-track deportations, known as expedited removals. In July, the US government said it was increasing expedited removals to apply all over the USA to undocumented people who cannot prove they have been in the country for at least two years. But the judge says people cannot be deported until they have had a hearing.

August 16, 2019, update:

'N AMERIKAANSE hof het gesê dat die Verenigde State 'n nuwe reël oor asiel in sommige lande kan plaas, maar nie in ander.

A US court said that the United States can put in place a new rule about asylum in some states but not in others.

Die nuwe reël (sien Julie 16 onder) het gesê dat asiel soekers aankom by die VSA-Mexico grens moet eers vra vir asiel in 'n ander land wat hulle gereis deur langs die pad.

The new rule (see July 16 below) said that asylum seekers arriving at the US-Mexico border must first ask for asylum in another country they traveled through along the way.

vandag, drie regters het 'n besluit geneem in 'n AMERIKAANSE hof van appèlle in San Francisco. Hierdie hof van appèlle dek die negende distrik, wat Kalifornië en Arizona insluit. Die beoordelaars het gesê dat die VSA moet voortgaan om alle aansoeke van asiel soekers te aanvaar in Kalifornië en Arizona, selfs al het hulle nie gevra vir asiel in ander lande. Maar die VSA kan weier om te aanvaar asiel aansoeke van mitoelaes aankoms by die VSA-Mexico border in Texas of New Mexico, tensy die miperdings asiel is geweier in 'n ander land of lande langs die pad.

Today, three judges made a decision in a US Court of Appeals in San Francisco. This Court of Appeals covers the Ninth District, which includes California and Arizona. The judges said that the USA must continue to accept all applications from asylum seekers in California and Arizona, even if they have not asked for asylum in other countries. But the USA can refuse to accept asylum applications from migrants arriving at the US-Mexico border in Texas or New Mexico unless the migrants were refused asylum in another country or countries along the way.

Die beoordelaars het nie gesê dit was reg of reg vir die Verenigde State om asiel-versoeke te weier nie. Hulle het net gesê daar was nie genoeg inligting om die nuwe reël oor die hele land te blokkeer nie. Organisasies wat assisoekers ondersteun, is hard besig om meer inligting te verskaf wat die nuwe reël teen die AMERIKAANSE Wet is.

The judges did not say it was right or legal for the United States to refuse asylum requests. They just said there was not enough information to block the new rule across the whole country. Organizations that support asylum seekers are working hard to provide more information that the new rule is against US law.

Wat beteken dit vir asiel soekers van Sentraal en Suid-Amerika?

What does this mean for asylum seekers from Central and South America?

Die regters’ beslissing beteken dat, Vir nou, mense wat deur Mexiko kom, kan steeds vir asiel vra by die AMERIKAANSE grens in Kalifornië en Arizona. Maar as hulle vra vir asiel by die AMERIKAANSE grens in Texas of New Mexico, hulle kan weggedraai sonder 'n verhoor (tensy hulle asiel in 'n ander land geweier is).

The judges’ ruling means that, for now, people coming through Mexico can still ask for asylum at the US border in California and Arizona. But if they ask for asylum at the US border in Texas or New Mexico, they can be turned away without a hearing (unless they have been refused asylum in another country).

Hierdie ooreenkoms is van toepassing op mense by die VSA-Mexico border soek asiel in die VSA. If migrants came through Guatemala on their journey and did not seek asylum there, then they cannot ask for asylum in the United States.

This agreement applies to people at the US-Mexico border seeking asylum in the USA. If migrants came through Guatemala on their journey and did not seek asylum there, then they cannot ask for asylum in the United States.

There are many people in Guatemala and the USA who say the agreement will put migrants in danger. There will be challenges in the courts in both countries. By die dieselfde tyd, the Department of Homeland Security says it is hoping to sign similar agreements with other countries, including Mexico, Honduras, El Savador, Panama, and Brazil.

Behoorlike proses beteken asiel soekers het die reg om 'n immigrasie hof besluit as hulle moet word gehou of op borgtog vrygelaat. Dit heet 'n verband gehoor. Die regter sê asiel soekers moet 'n verband gehoor gegee word.

Due process means asylum seekers have the right to have an immigration court decide if they should be held or released on bail. This is called a bond hearing. The judge says asylum seekers must be given a bond hearing.

Die Amerikaanse regering wil hê asiel soekers na vrygestel word terwyl hulle wag. So die Departement van Justisie die regter se besluit sal appelleer.

Update 1

Die Departement van vaderland sekuriteit het begin sy “Migrant beskerming protokolle” by die US-Meksikaanse grens.

The Department of Homeland Security has started its “Migrant Protection Protocols” at the US-Mexican border.

Mense soek asiel by die San Ysidro grens kruising kan teruggekeer word na Mexiko en moes daar wag totdat hul aansoek verwerk is. Die Amerikaanse regering sê die Meksikaanse Regering sal mense beskerm terwyl hulle wag. Die nuwe beleid is nie van toepassing op onbegeleide minderjariges (kinders onder 18 jaar oud wat nie met volwassenes) of om Mexikaanse burgers.

People seeking asylum at the San Ysidro border crossing may be returned to Mexico and have to wait there until their application is processed. The US government says the Mexican government will protect people while they wait. The new policy does not apply to unaccompanied minors (children under 18 years old who are not with adults) or to Mexican nationals.

Wat doen hierdie gemiddelde vir asiel soekers?

What does this mean for asylum seekers?

Dit beteken dat die Amerikaanse Regering sal terugkeer asiel soekers na Mexiko terwyl hulle wag vir 'n gehoor (gaan na die hof om te sien die regter). Asiel soekers sal toegelaat word om te kom in die VSA vir hul verhore. Die eerste verhoor moet word binne 45 dae, en dan daar is dalk meer verhore. Die regering sê hulle moet 'n besluit binne een jaar kry. Lees die Migrant beskerming protokolle verklaring van die Departement van vaderland sekuriteit.

This means the US government will return asylum seekers to Mexico while they wait for a hearing (going to the court to see the judge). Asylum seekers will be allowed to come into the USA for their hearings. The first hearing should be within 45 days, and then there may be more hearings. The government says they should get a decision within one year. Read the Migrant Protection Protocols statement from the Department of Homeland Security.

Daar is oor 800,000 asiel aansoeke wag verwerk kan word. Dit beteken 'n wag van etlike jare vir mense aan die onderkant van die lys. Mense wag in Mexiko gaan na die onderkant van die lys. Maar dit word moeiliker vir hulle om te vind 'n Amerikaanse prokureur om hulle te help.

There are about 800,000 asylum applications waiting to be processed. This means a wait of several years for people at the bottom of the list. People waiting in Mexico will not go to the bottom of the list. But it will be harder for them to find a US lawyer to help them.

Selfs ná 'n lang wag, die meeste asiel aansoeke aangeskakel is. Baie min mense asiel toegestaan word.

Even after a long wait, most asylum applications are turned down. Very few people are granted asylum.

Update 2

Die aantal mense toegelaat om aansoek te doen vir asiel by die VSA-Meksikaanse grens elke dag is beperk.

The number of people allowed to apply for asylum at the US-Mexican border every day is limited.

Verslae van Mexiko sê VSA regering amptenare gesê Mexikaanse amptenare wat hulle sal slegs aanvaar 20 asiel aansoeke per dag by die San Ysidro poort van inskrywing. Die aansoeke sal geneem word, en dan die asiel soekers sal teruggaan na Mexiko te wag.

Reports from Mexico say US government officials told Mexican officials that they will only accept 20 asylum applications per day at the San Ysidro port of entry. The applications will be taken, and then the asylum seekers will go back to Mexico to wait.

Hierdie proses staan bekend as “meting.” Dit beteken net 'n vasgestelde aantal mense wag op die grens is toegelaat om aansoek te doen elke dag. Meting gebruik is by ander poorte van inskrywing, ook. Leer merts oor die proses van 'n onlangse verslag.

This process is known as “metering.” It means only a set number of people waiting at the border are allowed to apply every day. Metering is used at other ports of entry, too. Learn more about the process from a recent report.

Nadat jy eis asiel, die Wet sê jy moet gegee word 'n “geloofwaardige vrees” onderhoud. Die onderhoud is die eerste stap in 'n versoek vir asiel. As jy slaag jou geloofwaardige vrees onderhoud, Jy kan aansoek doen om asiel.

After you claim asylum, the law says you must be given a “credible fear” interview. The interview is the first step in a request for asylum. If you pass your credible fear interview, you can apply for asylum. The new rule says that then asylum seekers will be “processed by DHS and given a ‘Notice to Appear’ for their immigration court hearing.” Because of the new rule, you will be sent to Mexico instead of waiting in the USA.

Junie 11, 2018, voormalige ons prokureur algemene Jeff sessies het gesê dat mense wat huishoudelike geweld of bende geweld in hul huis lande sal nie oor die algemeen word toegelaat om te eis asiel in Amerika. Maar op Desember 19, Regter Emmet Sullivan het gesê die nuwe reël is onwettige. Hy het gesê dat hierdie migrante steeds mag versoek asiel.

On June 11, 2018, former US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that people fleeing domestic violence or gang violence in their home countries will not generally be allowed to claim asylum in America. But on December 19, Judge Emmet Sullivan said the new rule was unlawful. He said these migrants are still allowed to request asylum.

Wat beteken die regter se besluit vir migrante?

What does the judge’s decision mean for migrants?

Dit beteken dat jy het 'n reg om te versoek asiel in die VSA vir redes van bende geweld en huishoudelike geweld. Jy het 'n reg om gehoor word voordat jy gedeporteer. Maar die besluit nie nie beteken jou versoek toegestaan sal word. Baie min mense asiel toegestaan word.

It means that you have a right to request asylum in the USA for reasons of gang violence and domestic violence. You have a right to be heard before you are deported. But the decision does not mean your request will be granted. Very few people are granted asylum.

Update 2

Die Amerikaanse distrik regter in Kalifornië het voortgegaan om die blok op die Presidensiële bevel gemaak in November.
The US District Judge in California has continued the block on the presidential order made in November.

In November, President Trump onderteken 'n nuwe reël sê net asiel soekers wat gaan na 'n Amerikaanse hawe van inskrywing kan asiel versoek. Op November 19, Regter Jon Tigar gestop die nuwe reël, sê dit was teen Amerikaanse Wet. Nou die regter 'n — gearbei wat steeds sy verbod teen die reël gemaak het.

In November, President Trump signed a new rule saying only asylum seekers who go to a US port of entry can request asylum. On November 19, Judge Jon Tigar stopped the new rule, saying it was against US law. Now the judge has made an injunction that continues his ban against the rule.

Wat beteken die regter se — gearbei vir asiel soekers?

What does the judge’s injunction mean for asylum seekers?

Die verbod onlosmaaklik beteken die regter se verbod op die nuwe reël sal voortgaan. Dit beteken dat die Verenigde State moet verwerk asiel eise van mense selfs as hulle het nie kom deur 'n poort van inskrywing. Maar hierdie uitspraak nie nie beteken daardie asiel toegestaan sal word. Dit is steeds baie moeilik om te kry asiel in die VSA.

The injunction means the judge’s ban on the new rule will continue. It means the United States must process asylum claims from people even if they did not come through a port of entry. But this ruling does not mean that asylum will be granted. It is still very difficult to get asylum in the USA.

USAHello ondersteun die regte van asiel soekers om te vra vir beskerming in die Verenigde State.

USAHello supports the rights of asylum seekers to ask for protection in the United States.

November 19, 2018 bywerking: 'N Amerikaanse distrik regter het die Presidensiële bevel geblokkeer tot Desember 19.

November 19, 2018 update: A US District Judge has blocked the presidential order until December 19.

Die regter sê die Presidensiële orde gaan teen die Verenigde State’ wet. Amerikaanse Wet sê mense op Amerikaanse grond is bevoeg om aansoek te doen vir asiel. Dit sê nie dat hulle moes kom deur 'n poort van inskrywing. Op November 19, die regter het gesê die Verenigde State moet die Wet volg.

The judge says the presidential order goes against the United States’ law. US law says people on American soil are eligible to apply for asylum. It does not say they have to come through a port of entry. On November 19, the judge said the United States must follow the law.

Wat beteken hierdie nuwe regerende?

What does this new ruling mean?

Die uitspraak oor November 19 beteken dat die Verenigde State moet verwerk asiel eise van mense wat het nie kom deur 'n poort van inskrywing. Die uitspraak sê hierdie mense moet toegelaat word om aansoek te doen. Maar hierdie uitspraak nie nie beteken daardie asiel toegestaan sal word. Dit is steeds baie moeilik om te kry asiel in die VSA.

The ruling on November 19 means the United States must process asylum claims from people who did not come through a port of entry. The ruling says these people must be allowed to apply. But this ruling does not mean that asylum will be granted. It is still very difficult to get asylum in the USA.

November 8, 2018

November 8, 2018

President Trump het 'n bevel te beperk asiel soekers op die suidelike grens van die Verenigde State onderteken. Die nuwe reël sê dat asiel soekers moet gaan na 'n Amerikaanse hawe van inskrywing.

President Trump has signed an order to limit asylum seekers on the southern border of the United States. The new rule says that asylum seekers must go to a US port of entry.

Die reël sal begin by middernag op Vrydag, November 9. Dit duur vir 90 dae. Die nuwe reël geld nie vir kinders sonder 'n volwassene.

The rule will start at midnight on Friday, November 9. It lasts for 90 days. The new rule does not apply to children without an adult.

Wat doen hierdie gemiddelde vir asiel soekers op die suidelike grens?

What does this mean for asylum seekers on the southern border?

Hierdie verandering beteken dat as mense betree die Verenigde State van Amerika op enige plek behalwe by 'n poort van inskrywing, hulle is nie bevoeg om te vra vir asiel. Hulle mag kry spesiale beskerming omdat “redelike vrees” (minder as vier mense kry dit). Maar die meeste mense sal deported word. Lees meer oor redelike vrees en geloofwaardige vrees.

This change means that if people enter the United States anywhere except at a port of entry, they are not eligible to ask for asylum. They may get special protection because of “reasonable fear” (fewer than one in four people get this). But most people will be deported. Read more about reasonable fear and credible fear.

Wat beteken die nuwe reël vir mense wat reeds in die VSA soek asiel?

What does the new rule mean for people who are already in the US seeking asylum?

Die nuwe reël nie beïnvloed mense reeds binne-in die Verenigde State of mense wat opdaag op November 9 voor middernag.

The new rule does not affect people already inside the United States or people who arrive on November 9 before midnight.

Sal hierdie reël weer verander?

Will this rule change again?

Die wette van die Verenigde State sê dat migrante asiel kan eis wanneer hulle op Amerikaanse grond, egter en oral waar hulle ingeskryf. So burgerregte groepe is veg teen die nuwe reël.

The laws of the United States say that migrants can claim asylum when they are on American soil, however and wherever they entered. So civil rights groups are fighting against the new rule.

ICE logo update for asylum seekers

Junie 2018

June 2018

Daar het 'n verandering aan reëls vir asiel soekers te kom na die Verenigde State is. Junie 11, 2018, Amerikaanse prokureur generaal Jeff sessies het gesê dat mense wat huishoudelike geweld of bende geweld in hul huis lande sal nie oor die algemeen word toegelaat om te eis asiel in Amerika.

There has been a change to rules for asylum seekers coming to the United States. On June 11, 2018, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that people fleeing domestic violence or gang violence in their home countries will not generally be allowed to claim asylum in America.

Wat doen hierdie gemiddelde vir asiel soekers?

What does this mean for asylum seekers?

Hierdie verandering beïnvloed meestal asiel soekers as jy kom na die grens tussen Meksiko en die Verenigde State. Jy het waarskynlik kom uit 'n land waar bende geweld maak lewe gevaarlik. Of jy dalk 'n vrou 'n gewelddadige huis verlaat om jouself en jou kinders veilig hou. Die nuwe reëls sê jy kan kry asiel as gevolg van daardie redes.

This change mostly affects asylum seekers if you are coming to the border between Mexico and the United States. You have probably come from a country where gang violence is making life dangerous. Or you may be a woman leaving a violent home to keep yourself and your children safe. The new rules say you cannot get asylum due to those reasons.

Dit is reeds baie moeilik om asiel status in Amerika. Die meeste asiel soekers is nie aanvaar nie. Die Wet sê jy mag asiel soek as jy vrees van vervolging omdat:

It is already very difficult to get asylum status in America. Most asylum seekers are not accepted. The law says you may seek asylum if you have fear of persecution because of:

• ras

• race

• godsdiens
• religion
• nasionaliteit
• nationality
• lidmaatskap in 'n spesifieke sosiale groep
• membership in a particular social group
• politieke mening

• political opinion

Selfs as jy kom vir een van hierdie redes, Dit kan moeilik wees om te bewys aan U.S. Immigrasie en doeane afdwinging (YS). Lees hierdie regering bladsy meer te leer oor reëls vir soek asiel.

Even if you coming for one of these reasons, it can be difficult to prove to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Read this government page to learn more about rules for seeking asylum.

Wat sal gebeur as ek aankom op die grens wat asiel soek vir een van hierdie redes?

What will happen to me if I arrive on the border seeking asylum for one of these reasons?

Alle asiel soekers wat asiel soek moet verstaan dat hulle gehou kan word deur die Amerikaanse regering (gedwing om te bly in 'n aanhouding Sentrum) vir baie weke. Sommige mense het al geskei van hul kinders wanneer hulle opdaag op die grens. Sedert Junie 20, Dit word nie toegelaat nie. Daar is groepe wat in die VSA te help ouers hul kinders vind. Maar daar is baie min wat enigiemand kan doen om te help jy of jou kinders as jy reeds gehou deur die Amerikaanse regering.

All asylum seekers who are seeking asylum should understand that they may be held by the US government (forced to stay in a detention center) for many weeks. Some people have been separated from their children when they arrive on the border. Since June 20, this is not allowed. There are groups working in the US to help parents find their children. But there is very little anyone can do to help you or your children if you are already being held by the US government.

Wat moet ek doen?

What should I do?

Jy het nodig om te vra vir 'n prokureur. In die Verenigde State, Jy het die reg om 'n prokureur, maar jy moet vra vir 'n prokureur. Jy moet sê, “Ek wil nou by 'n prokureur praat.” Hou vra elke persoon jy praat vir 'n prokureur totdat jy toegang tot 'n prokureur gegee.

You need to ask for a lawyer. In the United States, you have the right to a lawyer, but you MUST ask for a lawyer. You need to say, “I want to speak to a lawyer now.” Keep asking every person you talk to for a lawyer until you are given access to a lawyer.

Wat gebeur as ek slaag my onderhoud? Sal ek steeds word aangehou?

What if I pass my interview? Will I still be detained?

As jy jou asiel onderhoud geslaag het (genoem 'n “geloofwaardige vrees” onderhoud) Jy sal 'n verhoor voor 'n regter te maak jou geval vir asiel kry. Dit kan baie lank neem om 'n gehoor. Jy moet vrygestel word van aanhouding terwyl jy wag.

If you have passed your asylum interview (called a “credible fear” interview) you will get a hearing in front of a judge to make your case for asylum. It can take a very long time to get a hearing. You should be released from detention while you wait.

Maar, Sommige aanhouding sentrums is asiel soekers hou selfs nadat hulle slaag hul onderhoud. Op Julie 2, 'n federale regter gesê ys moet nie hou asiel soekers na hul onderhoud sonder 'n goeie rede. As jy gehou nadat jy jou onderhoud geslaag het, vra om te praat met 'n prokureur.

However, some detention centers are holding asylum seekers even after they pass their interview. On July 2, a federal judge said ICE must not hold asylum seekers after their interview without a good reason. If you are being held after you have passed your interview, ask to speak to a lawyer.
