KILICHOBADILIKA

Introduction

Tarehe 27/01/2017 Raisi wa Marekani Donald Trump alitia sahihi sera ya kuzuia wahamiaji kuingia nchini Marekani kwa mda wa miezi minne na kupunguza uandikishwaji wa wakimbizi hadi kufika idadi ya 50,000 mwaka huu. Pia alitia sahihi kwenye sera nyingine inayolenga wahamiaji waishio nchini Marekani, sera zote hizi zililenga ahadi zake alizotoa wakati wa kampeni kuwa atashughulika na uhalifu unaosababishwa na wahamiaji haramu ili hulinda usalama wa raia wa marekani.

We are living in difficult times. Recent actions against refugee resettlement, refugees and immigrants in the United States have created fear and concerns for many. Everyone has rights, including refugees, asylum seekers, asylees, immigrants, lawful permanent residents (green card holders), U.S. citizens, and individuals in the United States without status.

JE, NIOGOPE?

We all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of where we are from or how we pray. We all have rights. This resource is meant to provide refugees with urgently needed information. You must know your rights in response to the important issues facing our communities. This resource is not intended to create fear of law enforcement entities. It is important to understand that emergency service personnel (police, medical personnel, and firefighters) are available to help any person in an emergency. Always call 911 in an emergency. Know your rights – refugee rights.

Sera na kanuni zimeathili sana watu wengi ambao wanasubiri kuungana na familia zao wanaoishi ugaibuni. Japokuwa sera hizo haziathili moja kwa moja wakimbizi ambao tayari wanaishi nchini Marekani, ni vizuri wakimbizi na wahamiaji wote waendelee kutii sheria za nchi ya Marekani. Haupaswi kutilia mashaka uhalali wako wa kuishi ndani ya Marekani kisheria kama mkimbizi. Wakati raia wa nchi za kigeni ikiwa ni pamoja na wahamiaji halali na wakimbizi wanahesabika kuwa na haki sawa sawa na raia wa Marekani makosa madogo madogo yanayogundulika wakati wa upelelezi wa polisi kwa makundi hayo ya watu inaweza kusababishwa kupoteza uhalali wa kuishi ndani ya Marekani. Ikiwa unasubiri ndugu yako kuhamia nchini Marekani inaweza kuchukua mda kidogo pamoja na kwamba bado utatumia fursa halali ya kuwasilisha maombi ya ndugu yako katika ofisi za uhamiaji.

As a refugee, you are a very important advocate. Your voice can have a great impact because you are a refugee. You have the right to:

HAKI YAKO UNAPOHOJIWA NA OFISA WA SERIKALI

Lawful permanent residents who are accused of crimes

Ofisa wa serikali anayo mamlaka ya kukuhoji, lakini pia unahaki ya kukataa kuhojiwa ikiwa unahisi kuwa mahojiano yatavunja haki zako za msingi, zungumza na mwanasheria wako au msimamizi wako kutoka kwenye shirika lililopewa mamlaka ya kukusaidia uwapo Marekani ili wajue namna ya kukusaidia katika mahojiano.

If you are not yet a citizen and you are arrested or accused of a crime, make sure your lawyer understands your immigration status because minor offenses can result in deportation for non-US citizens. Pleading guilty as part of a plea bargain can jeopardize your legal status and could eventually lead to removal.

· Unahaki ya kuwa na mwanasheria wa kukusaidia kwenye mahojiano

If you have a criminal conviction on your record, it is recommended that you contact a lawyer to understand all your options. If you are able to get a “set aside” or “expunge” your conviction, this could clear your record, but the laws are different in each state, so it is best to consult a lawyer about these questions.

· Unaweza kuchagua mda na mahali pa mahojiano

Remember: talk to a lawyer if you are accused of even a minor crime.

· Unahaki ya kujua aina ya maswali yatakaoulizwa wakati wa mahojiano na kuwa na mtafsiri wako endapo hujui luhga ya mahojiano

Your rights if you are interviewed by a federal agent

· Sio lazima ujibu maswali yote kama hujisikii kuyajibu

Agents from the FBI or DHS may seek to talk with you. You have the right to decline to be interviewed, but this can be viewed with suspicion. Talk to your lawyer or representative from your resettlement agency first about the interview request.

· Kama unamsaidia mwanafamilia mwenzako kumleta Marekani inaweza kuchukua mda kidogo lakini bado fursa na utaratibu wa maombi ya kumleta utafutwa kama kawaida.

If you agree to an interview, you have the right to have an attorney present. You can find legal services from CLINIC or from AILA.

KUMBUKA : Hautakiwi KUTOA taarifa za uongo wakati wa mahojiano, vinginevyo itahesabika madhara kisheria

  • You can choose the time and place for the interview.
  • You can request to know what the questions will be at the interview and have an interpreter present.
  • Do not give any false information during your interview. You do not have to answer all the questions you are asked, if you are not comfortable.
  • If you are waiting for your family member to be resettled to the U.S., it may take longer, but they still have the same opportunity to apply for resettlement.

UWE MAKINI NA WAPELELEZI KUTOKA KUTOKA VYOMBO VYA SHERIA

Remember: you MUST NOT give false information during your interview. It will be considered a criminal offense and may result in negative consequences.

MTEGO🙁 Mtego wa fumanizii )

Be aware of law enforcement surveillance

Mtego ni hali ambayo ofisa wa serikali huweka dhini ya mtu ili kujua kama anadhamira ya uhalifu, hufanyika pale ambapo kama mtu huyo asingetegwa maana yake asingefanya kosa hilo, kwakuwa maaskari wa sirini hufuatilia kimyakimya mienendo ya waislamu na wahamiaji ndani ya nchi ya marekani ni vizuri watu wote kuishi kwa dhamira safi ili isiwepo sababu ya kuingizwa kwenye makosa ya jinai

Entrapment

UPELELEZI ( Surveillance)

Entrapment is a practice whereby a law enforcement officer induces a person to commit a criminal offense that the person may have otherwise been unlikely to commit. Since undercover agents sometimes may monitor Muslim or immigrant communities, it is important to always maintain situational awareness and consciousness, hold true to your values, and not be lured into activities that could be illegal.

Wewe na familia yako mnaweza kuchunguzwa na serikali, Upelelezi inaweza kufanyika kwa njia kwa njia tatu( a) Njia ya kawaida, hutokea pale ofisa wa serikali anapofuatilia taarifa za mtu kwa kutumia mtu mwingine kwenye familia.

Surveillance

b. Njia ya muonekano, hutumika pale ofisa wa serikali anapotumia mahojiano kwa kumhoji mmojammoja ndani ya familia ili kupata taarifa.

You and your families may experience some form of surveillance. The purpose of surveillance is to gather information and the techniques can be categorized into three types: covert, overt, and electronic surveillance:

c. Njia ya utandawazi, hutumika kwa kutumia vifaa vya kitekinolojia kama vile simu na mitandao ya kijamii ili kupata taarifa za mawasiliano yaliyofanyika hapo nyuma. Sheria hutofuatiana kutoka State hadi State nyingine, ni vizuri kuzungumza na mwanasheria ikiwa unahisi kuwa chini ya upelelezi.

  • Covert surveillance is when the individual is not able to detect someone gathering information on them. This can be done by following the individual from a distance, searching through garbage receptacles left of public property, and using microphones to listen in on conversations.
  • Overt surveillance is visible and is what is being most frequently reported by refugee communities. This type of surveillance can be accomplished by knocking on doors and asking questions, openly talking to neighbors, etc.
  • Electronic surveillance focuses on monitoring internet, website pages, and using listening devices. Overall, surveillance is a legal process used by local, state, and federal law enforcement. The specific laws and regulations vary from state to state and it is advised to speak with a lawyer if you feel you are under surveillance.

MATUMIZI YA UTANDAWAZI

Ikiwa watoto au wazazi watakuwa wanashabikia mitazamo hasi dhidi ya serikali kuna uwezekano wa kuchunguzwa na kupelelezwa na hivyo kujikuta familia hizo zikiwa kwenye matatizo yasiyo ya lazima.

Be careful not to visit websites that might hold extremist ideologies or engage in online conversations with others who might hold radical views.

HAKI YAKO YA KUTETEA JUMUIA YAKO

Talk to your children and teenagers about what are appropriate internet sites to visit and what you expect them to avoid. Monitor your children and teenagers’ activity online and encourage them not to visit websites or participate in online activity that could be perceived as problematic. Consider setting guidelines ahead of time or even using software that can restrict their use.

Sera ya serikali imeathili sana familia za wakimbizi wengi, kama mkimbizi wewe ni mtetezi mzuri kwa wenzako, sauti yako inaweza kuwa na matunda mazuri kwasababu wewe ni mkimbizi.
