A new process for asylum in the USA started in 2018

More than 300,000 people are waiting to hear about their asylum applications in the USA. It will take a long time to process all those applications and interview all the applicants.

Kushughulikia tatizo, Uraia wa Marekani na huduma za uhamiaji (USCIS) changed its process for interviewing asylum applicants in 2018. Usaili waombaji mpya kwanza na kazi nyuma kupitia orodha mpangilio pinduzi. Read the USCIS information about asylum interview scheduling.

To address the problem, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) changed its process for interviewing asylum applicants in 2018. It is interviewing new applicants first and working back through the list in reverse order. Read the USCIS information about asylum interview scheduling.

Huu ni utaratibu mpya:

This is the new order:

  • Kipaumbele cha kwanza: Applicants who were scheduled for an interview, lakini mahojiano upya ombi la mwombaji au mahitaji ya USCIS.
  • Kipaumbele cha pili: Programu tumizi ambazo wamekuwa zinazosubiri 21 siku au chini.
  • Kipaumbele cha tatu: Maombi mengine yote ya Hifadhi zinazosubiri kijinsia itakuwa imepangwa kwa ajili ya mahojiano kuanzia na viingilio jipya na kazi nyuma kuelekea viingilio wakubwa.
  • First priority: Applicants who were scheduled for an interview, but the interview had to be rescheduled at the applicant’s request or the needs of USCIS.
  • Second priority: Applications that have been pending 21 days or less.
  • Third priority: All other pending affirmative asylum applications will be scheduled for interviews starting with newer filings and working back towards older filings.

Why is USCIS making this change to asylum in the USA?

Why is USCIS making this change to asylum in the USA?

Kama unaweza kuomba hifadhi, you may apply for a work permit 150 siku baadaye. Basi unafanya kazi mpaka ni alikubali au alikataa. USCIS anasema mchakato mpya itapunguza idadi ya watu kutumia Hifadhi tu kwa kupata kibali cha kufanya kazi. Kama waombaji mpya watashughulikiwa kwanza badala ya kusubiri kwa miaka, USCIS anaamini wao pengine si kuomba isipokuwa kama wana kesi nzuri. Hii ni kwa sababu wakati waombaji Hifadhi ni akageuka, they may be removed from the USA

If you apply for asylum, you may apply for a work permit 150 days later. Then you can work until you are accepted or refused. USCIS says the new process will reduce the number of people applying for asylum just to get a work permit. If new applicants are dealt with first instead of waiting for years, USCIS believes they probably won’t apply unless they have a good case. This is because when asylum applicants are turned down, they may be removed from the USA

Nini kama mimi wamekuwa wakisubiri kwa mahojiano yangu, na kesi yangu ni haraka?

What if I have been waiting for my interview, and my case is urgent?

USCIS says it will consider urgent requests to be scheduled for an interview outside of the priority order listed above. Please submit any urgent interview scheduling requests in writing to your USCIS asylum office.

Vipi kuhusu familia yangu?

What about my family?

Asylees baadhi wamekuwa wakisubiri kwa hadi miaka minne ili ukubaliwe ili wao kuleta watoto wao au wanandoa kujiunga nao. Itakuwa vigumu sana kwa wao kupata kusubiri hata tena. Watetezi wa haki za binadamu ni kuuliza USCIS kupata utaratibu haki kwa waombaji hawa. Kama wewe ni si tayari kufanya kazi na mwanasheria, Tunapendekeza kutafuta mwanasheria ili kukusaidia.

Some asylees have been waiting for up to four years to be approved so they can bring their children or spouses to join them. It will be very hard for them to have to wait even longer. Human rights advocates are asking USCIS to find a fair process for these applicants. If you are not already working with a lawyer, we recommend finding a lawyer to help you.
