There are immigration attorneys offering FREE legal aid to detained immigrants through the International Refugee Assistance Program at major international US airports all weekend.

Why You Need Somalia by Yasminah - Bosaaso.com

Why You Need Somalia more than Somalia Needs You? I have been in Somalia for almost two years now. I’ve spent the past two years breathing the unpolluted fresh air, munching on unrefined & inexpensive organic foods, and reveling on the serene scenic views of the ocean and the highlands. Growing up i…

Why I moved back to Somalia (and you should, too)

Learning Somali is good for business as well as cultural heritage!

The author writes:
"Returning diaspora members are positioning themselves for success beyond their wildest imaginations — especially compared to their prospects in the States. I’ve seen people come here with a modest amount of savings and leverage it into entire hotel chains..."

Members of the diaspora are leaving a Seattle that's increasingly inhospitable for working class immigrants and people of color, and moving back to Somalia to rebuild.

U magac bixinta afka soomaaliga Iyo aqoonta ku hareeraysan ayaa siyaabo badan loo dhigay oo erey murtiyeed lagu soo ururiyay. Sida aragtida oranaysa afka soomaaligu waa tix Iyo tiraab oo laga soo xigtay gabayadii raage Ugaas allah haw arxamee.
Sidoo kale, aniga gardaadshahaygii laaxintiraha ahaa waa Saciid warsame ilkaxiir oo lagu naanaysi jirey (jebeli) wuxuu ii baray inay tuducda Ama tixda sugaantu ka kooban tahay EREY YO Iyo UJEEDDO.

Haddaba Waxa jira laba dembi suugaaneed oo waagan dambe la caadaystay.

Labadaa arimood waa gef Iyo gabood fal qofka ku talaab sanaya la sahlan Laakiin xanuun keeda leh.
Waxa jira wax la yiraa maanso dheeg, waa marka qof isku deyeya inuu wax Hal abuuro dhex galo sugaantii h**e loo sameeyey, hadba ereyga iyo tuducda uu quudhi waayo ka gurto oo si badheedha ah hal muceedka uga togto.

Wax yaabaha dadku dheegaan oo sumad dooriyaan Waxa ka mida ereyada Iyo u jeeddada labadaba.
Arintaasi waa tan keentay inaan aragno Hal sheeko ama gabay Amaba halku dheg oo hebello Iyo deegaanno kala duwan lagu sheego. Amaba dad kala duwani sheegtaan.

Gabood falka labaad waa kasii xanuun badanyahay maansa dheegga.
Waxana la yiraa maansa booli.
Waa marka gabay, sheeko, maahmaah Iyo waxii hadal murtiyaad ah oo hanaqaad ah oo qof h**e lahaa, mid kale si cad u sheegto oo intuu magacii xaqlaha tuuro fagaaraha is la soo taago.

Falalkan waxa dhiiri geliyey wax qoraal la'aanteennii h**e iyo is gaadhsiinta oo siday maanta tahay aan beryihii h**e ahayn.

Geba gebadii maygu raacsantahay in aan ka hor nimaadno, dhaqannadaa qof mootan Ama maqan u quudhi waayey midhkii hibadiisa Hal abuur keentay.

Mays la qaadanaa inaan dhaqankaan hanti ka qaadka ah oo boolida u haysta xoolo mood Iyo nool ah oo la dhacay Laakiin aan dareensanayn Amaba sahashadey ka sariigad la'aanta hantida Hal abuur.
Mays la falanqaynaa xeer u samaynta arintaa.
Haddii saaxiibada aan akhriswadaagta nahay kasoo tiraab celiyaan aragtidan Waxan ra'yi ku darsan doonaa talaaboo yinka loomari karo xeer ka ku wajahan arintan.
Alla magantii ahaada
