司法部撥款3500萬美元為人口販運的受害者提供住房

新聞簡述:人口販運是現代奴隸制的一種形式。 它破壞了社區,加劇了犯罪活動,並威脅到美國的國家安全。 川普總統政府上周授權司法部附屬機構「犯罪受害者辦公室」(OVC)撥款3千5百多萬美元,用於為受害者提供安全的住房。並在白宮召開由司法部長巴爾和伊萬卡·川普和多名人口販運受害者參加的會議。這是川普總統入主白宮以來一系列強有力的打擊人口販運行動的一部分,也是又一次川普政府對美國和海外邪惡勢力的宣戰。

發佈日期:2020年8月4日

Today, Attorney General William P. Barr and Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump announced that the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), a component of the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP), has awarded $35,104,338 in grant funding to provide safe, stable housing and appropriate services to victims of human trafficking.

今天,司法部長威廉·巴爾和總統顧問伊凡卡·川普宣佈,通過司法程序辦公室(OJP)的附屬機構犯罪受害者辦公室(OVC)已撥款 35,104,338 美元,用於為人口販運的受害者提供安全、穩定的住房以及相關的服務。

“Human trafficking is a barbaric criminal enterprise that subjects its victims to unspeakable cruelty and deprives them of the most basic of human needs, none more essential than a safe place to live,” said Attorney General Barr.  “Throughout this Administration, the Department of Justice has fought aggressively to bring human traffickers to justice and to deliver critical aid to trafficking survivors.  These new resources, announced today, expand on our efforts to offer those who have suffered the shelter and support they need to begin a new and better life.”

巴爾部長說:「人口販運是一種野蠻的犯罪活動,使受害者遭受難以形容的殘忍行為,剝奪了他們最基本的作為人的權利,剝奪了他們最基本的安全生活的場所。」「在本屆政府執政期間,司法部一直採取積極的鬥爭將人口販子繩之以法,並為這些人口販運幸存者們提供重要援助。今天宣佈的這些新資源擴大了我們的能力,為遭受不幸的人們提供庇護和支持,使他們開始新的、更好的生活。」

“In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, combating human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad is critical work.  DOJ’s grant recipients are on the frontlines of this fight, ensuring that survivors across our country are afforded safe and stable housing and empowered with the support and resources they need to rebuild their lives,” said Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump.  “I am incredibly honored to join Attorney General Barr to highlight these organizations and their tireless and vital work.”

「在COVID-19大流行期間,打擊美國和海外的人口販運是一項至關重要的工作。司法部的贈款是授予那些站在這場鬥爭的前線的組織,這些工作將確保為全國各地的幸存者提供安全穩定的住房,並獲得重建生活所需的支持和資源。」總統顧問伊萬卡說:「我非常榮幸能與司法部長巴爾一起,重點介紹這些組織以及他們孜孜不倦、至關重要的工作。」

The grants will go to 73 organizations to provide six to 24 months of transitional or short-term housing assistance for trafficking victims, including rental, utilities or related expenses, such as security deposits and relocation costs.  The grants will also provide funding for support needed to help victims locate permanent housing, secure employment, as well as occupational training and counseling.

贈款將撥給73個組織,為人口販運受害者提供6至24個月的過渡性或短期住房援助,包括租金、水電費或相關費用,如保證金和安置費用。贈款還將為幫助受害者找到永久住房、安全就業以及職業培訓和咨詢所需的支助提供資金。

“Human traffickers dangle the threat of homelessness over those they have entrapped, playing a ruthless game of psychological manipulation that victims are never in a position to win,” said OJP Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Katharine T. Sullivan.  “These grants will empower survivors on their path to independence and a life of self-sufficiency and hope.”

OJP首席副助理司法部長凱瑟琳·T·沙利文(katharine T. Sullivan)說:「人販子用無家可歸來威脅這些受害者,他們玩弄一場無情的心理操控遊戲,使受害者永遠無法擺脫困境。」「這些贈款將幫助幸存者獲得獨立,過上自給自足、充滿希望的生活。」

OVC works to enhance the nation’s capacity to assist crime victims and to provide leadership in changing attitudes, policies and practices in ways that will promote justice and healing for all victims.  OVC strives to uphold the intent of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and its subsequent authorizations to ensure that all trafficking victims receive support in accessing the services they need.

OVC致力於提高國家幫助犯罪受害者的能力,並在改變態度、政策和做法方面發揮領導作用,以促進正義和使所有受害者康復。OVC致力於維護《2000年人口販運受害者保護法》及其後續授權的宗旨,確保所有人口販運受害者在獲得所需服務方面得到支持。

OVC provides grant funding and training and technical assistance in an effort to develop, expand and strengthen programs for victims of human trafficking.  In 2018, OVC hosted listening sessions and roundtable discussions with stakeholders in the field and launched the Human Trafficking Capacity Building Center.  From July 2018 through June 2019, 118 OVC human trafficking grantees reported serving 8,375 total clients including confirmed trafficking victims and individuals showing strong indicators of trafficking victimization.

OVC提供贈款、培訓和技術援助,以制定、擴大和加強針對人口販運受害者的應對方案。2018年,OVC與該領域的利益攸關方舉辦了聆聽會和圓桌討論會,並啓動了人口販運能力建設中心的運營工作。2018年7月至2019年6月,118名OVC人口販運受助組織報告稱,他們為8,375名客戶提供了服務,其中包括已確認的販運受害者和有強烈證據表明屬於販運受害者的個人。

Human trafficking offenses are among the most difficult crimes to identify, and the scope of human trafficking victimization may be much greater than the limited data reflect.  A new report issued by the Department’s National Institute of Justice found that the number of human trafficking cases captured in police reports may represent only a fraction of all such cases.  Expanding housing and other services to trafficking victims remains a top Justice Department priority.

人口販運犯罪是最難識別的犯罪之一,人口販運受害的實際範圍可能遠遠大於有限的數據所反映的範圍。美國司法部下屬的國家司法研究所發佈的一份新報告指出,警方報告中抓獲的人口販運案件數量可能僅佔所有此類案件的一小部分。為人口販運受害者提供住房和其它服務仍然是司法部的當務之急。
