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,司法部长威廉·巴尔和总统顾问伊凡卡·川普宣布,通过司法程序办公室(OJP)的附属机构犯罪受害者办公室(OVC)已拨款 35,104,338 美元,用于为人口贩运的受害者提供安全、稳定的住房以及相关的服务。

“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.”

巴尔部长说:“人口贩运是一种野蛮的犯罪活动,使受害者遭受难以形容的残忍行为,剥夺了他们最基本的作为人的权利,剥夺了他们最基本的安全生活的场所。”“在本届政府执政期间,司法部一直采取积极的斗争将人口贩子绳之以法,并为这些人口贩运幸存者们提供重要援助。今天宣布的这些新资源扩大了我们的能力,为遭受不幸的人们提供庇护和支持,使他们开始新的、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大流行期间,打击美国和海外的人口贩运是一项至关重要的工作。司法部的赠款是授予那些站在这场斗争的前线的组织,这些工作将确保为全国各地的幸存者提供安全稳定的住房,并获得重建生活所需的支持和资源。”总统顾问伊万卡说:“我非常荣幸能与司法部长巴尔一起,重点介绍这些组织以及他们孜孜不倦、至关重要的工作。”

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.

赠款将拨给73个组织,为人口贩运受害者提供6至24个月的过渡性或短期住房援助,包括租金、水电费或相关费用,如保证金和安置费用。赠款还将为帮助受害者找到永久住房、安全就业以及职业培训和咨询所需的支助提供资金。

“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首席副助理司法部长凯瑟琳·T·沙利文(katharine T. Sullivan)说:“人贩子用无家可归来威胁这些受害者,他们玩弄一场无情的心理操控游戏,使受害者永远无法摆脱困境。”“这些赠款将帮助幸存者获得独立,过上自给自足、充满希望的生活。”

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致力于提高国家帮助犯罪受害者的能力,并在改变态度、政策和做法方面发挥领导作用,以促进正义和使所有受害者康复。OVC致力于维护《2000年人口贩运受害者保护法》及其后续授权的宗旨,确保所有人口贩运受害者在获得所需服务方面得到支持。

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提供赠款、培训和技术援助,以制定、扩大和加强针对人口贩运受害者的应对方案。2018年,OVC与该领域的利益攸关方举办了聆听会和圆桌讨论会,并启动了人口贩运能力建设中心的运营工作。2018年7月至2019年6月,118名OVC人口贩运受助组织报告称,他们为8,375名客户提供了服务,其中包括已确认的贩运受害者和有强烈证据表明属于贩运受害者的个人。

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.

人口贩运犯罪是最难识别的犯罪之一,人口贩运受害的实际范围可能远远大于有限的数据所反映的范围。美国司法部下属的国家司法研究所发布的一份新报告指出,警方报告中抓获的人口贩运案件数量可能仅占所有此类案件的一小部分。为人口贩运受害者提供住房和其它服务仍然是司法部的当务之急。
