What does this new ruling mean?

Tawala tarehe Novemba 19 maana Marekani lazima mchakato Hifadhi madai kutoka kwa watu ambao hawakuja kupitia bandari vya kuingia. Chama tawala anasema watu hawa lazima kuruhusiwa kutumia. Lakini hii tawala si maana ya Hifadhi hiyo kitatolewa. Bado ni vigumu sana kupata hifadhi nchini Marekani.

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

Parapanda ya Rais ina saini ili kupunguza helkopta katika mpaka wa Kusini wa Marekani. Kanuni mpya anasema kwamba helkopta lazima kwenda Marekani bandari ya kuingia.

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.

Utawala kuanza usiku wa manane siku ya Ijumaa, Novemba 9. Hudumu kwa 90 siku. Kanuni mpya haitumiki kwa watoto bila mtu mzima.

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.

Je, hii maana kwa helkopta katika mpaka wa Kusini?

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

Mabadiliko haya anamaanisha kuwa kama watu kuingia Marekani mahali popote isipokuwa katika bandari vya kuingia, wao si wanaostahili kuomba hifadhi. Wapate ulinzi maalum kwa sababu ya “hofu ya kuridhisha” (watu wachache kuliko moja katika nne kupata hii). Lakini watu wengi watafukuzwa. Soma zaidi kuhusu hofu ya kuridhisha na hofu ya kuaminika.

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.

Utawala mpya inamaanisha nini kwa watu walio tayari katika hifadhi ya kutafuta ya Marekani?

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

Kanuni mpya kuathiri watu tayari ndani ya Marekani au watu ambao kufika tarehe Novemba 9 kabla ya usiku wa manane.

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

Kanuni hii itabadilisha tena?

Will this rule change again?

Sheria za Marekani wanasema kuwa wahamiaji wanaweza kudai Hifadhi wanapokuwa katika ardhi ya Marekani, Hata hivyo na popote waliingia. Hivyo vikundi vya haki za raia ni kupambana dhidi ya kanuni mpya.

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

Juni 2018

June 2018

Kumekuwa na mabadiliko kwenye kanuni za helkopta kuja Marekani. Juni 11, 2018, Marekani mwanasheria mkuu Jeff Sessions alisema kwamba watu wanaokimbia vurugu ndani au genge la vurugu katika nchi yao kwa ujumla haitaruhusiwa kudai Hifadhi katika 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.

Je, hii maana kwa helkopta?

What does this mean for asylum seekers?

Badiliko hili mara nyingi huathiri wanaotafuta kama ni kuja kwenye mpaka kati ya Mexico na Marekani. Wewe pengine kuja kutoka nchi ambapo kundi vurugu ni kufanya maisha hatari. Au huenda mwanamke kuondoka nyumbani vurugu kuweka wewe na watoto wako salama. Kanuni mpya kusema huwezi kupata hifadhi kutokana na sababu hizo.

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.

Tayari ni vigumu sana kupata hadhi ya hifadhi nchini Marekani. Wengi wanaotafuta ni kukubalika. Sheria inasema inaweza kutafuta hifadhi kama una hofu ya mateso kwa sababu ya:

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:

• mbio

• race

• dini
• religion
• utaifa
• nationality
• uanachama katika kundi fulani la kijamii
• membership in a particular social group
• maoni ya kisiasa

• political opinion

Hata kama unaweza kuja kwa moja kwa sababu hizi za, inaweza kuwa vigumu kuthibitisha kwa Marekani. Uhamiaji na forodha utekelezaji (BARAFU). Soma ukurasa huu serikali ili kujifunza zaidi kuhusu kanuni kwa ajili ya kutafuta hifadhi.

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.

Kile kitakachotokea kwa mimi kama mimi kufika mpakani kutafuta hifadhi kwa moja kwa sababu hizi za?

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

Wanaotafuta hifadhi wote ambao wanatafuta Hifadhi wanapaswa kuelewa kwamba yanaweza kufanywa na serikali ya Marekani (kulazimishwa kukaa katika kituo cha mahabusu) kwa majuma mengi. Baadhi ya watu wamekuwa kutengwa na watoto wao wanapofika katika mpaka. Tangu mwezi Juni 20, hii hairuhusiwi. Kuna vikundi kazi nchini Marekani kusaidia wazazi kupata watoto wao. Lakini kuna kidogo sana yeyote anaweza kufanya ili kusaidia wewe au watoto wako kama wewe ni tayari wanashikiliwa na serikali ya Marekani.

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.

Nifanye nini?

What should I do?

Unahitaji kuomba mwanasheria. Katika Marekani, una haki ya mwanasheria, lakini lazima kuomba na mwanasheria. Unahitaji kusema, “Nataka kuzungumza na mwanasheria sasa.” Kuweka kuuliza kila mtu wewe kuzungumza kwa mwanasheria mpaka ni kutokana upatikanaji kwa mwanasheria.

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.

Nini kama mimi kupita mahojiano yangu? Itakuwa mimi bado kuwa kizuizini?

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

Kama unaweza kupita mahojiano yako Hifadhi (kuitwa na “hofu ya kuaminika” mahojiano) utapata kusikilizwa mbele ya Jaji kufanya kesi yako kwa ajili ya Hifadhi. Inaweza kuchukua muda mrefu sana kupata kusikilizwa. Wewe wanapaswa kuachiwa huru kutoka kizuizini wakati ukisubiri.

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.

Hata hivyo, baadhi ya vituo vya mahabusu ni kufanya wanaotafuta hata baada ya wao kupita mahojiano yao. Tarehe Julai 2, mwamuzi shirikisho alisema barafu lazima kushikilia helkopta baada ya mahojiano yao bila sababu nzuri. Kama wewe ni kuwa uliofanyika baada ya wewe kupita mahojiano yako, Omba kuzungumza na mwanasheria.

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.

Wewe wamekuwa kutengwa na mtoto wako?

Have you been separated from your child?
