RRW wrap-up for week ending November 15th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 15, 2014

We didn’t post a wrap-up last week because I just didn’t get to it.  But, much to my surprise our top post (again) this week is the one about Somalis going from Colorado, where there is now apparently a serious overload of refugees looking for subsidized housing, to Wyoming to pick up housing vouchers they can take back and use in Colorado.

Here are the top most-visited stories this week (Top daily posts are in the right-hand sidebar):

1)  So why are those Somalis moving to Cheyenne, WY? Prepare to be shocked

2)  Malta writer: no “illegal” migrants just “irregular” ones, and you are a racist if you don’t see that

3)  Our fact sheet (always in the top three most-read posts)

Top ten countries (excluding the US).  And, check this out, for the first time another country pushed aside one of the usual top three and came in at number one—Malta!

Malta  (those Maltese must have really liked our Malta writer post!)

Canada

UK

Australia

France

Germany

South Africa

New Zealand

Thailand

India

If this month’s high number of visitors continues through November, we could top our top month ever (October) in terms of readership.

And, since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel.  For new readers:

This is where you can find information if you are arriving here at RRW for the first time (in addition to the fact sheet linked above). We have over 6,000 posts.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar)

*  See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts seven years ago, use the search window with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 307 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’

If you are a new reader, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

It occurs to me that I do see everyone’s comments to posts because we do screen them (no foul language, no threats), so if you have something you want me to see, I don’t at all mind if you send the link as a comment to a post, even if it’s off-topic.

To regular readers, thank you for your continued concern for this very important issue.

The Somalis-to-Cheyenne, WY post has gone viral

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2014

I didn’t get around to a weekly wrap-up of what was hot at RRW last week…but I need to mention this:

I don’t know why or how, but the post we wrote ten days ago about the Somalis going to Cheyenne, WY to get their subsidized housing vouchers is still coming in every day in the number one most-read posts tabulation.  Thousands and thousands have read it.

Click here to read it if somehow you missed it.  I would like to know who taught them how to game the system—Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains maybe?

By the way, I see it’s minus 6 degrees in some parts of Wyoming this morning.  Brrrr!

For all of our previous weekly summaries, go to our ‘blogging’ category.  See also our archive on the Wyoming refugee controversy by clicking here.

RRW down for about 24 hours; no explanation

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 28, 2014

As many of you figured out on your own, WordPress took down Refugee Resettlement Watch for about 24 hours claiming we violated terms of our agreement.   Although we are grateful to be back up, we wish we knew why this happened.

One very positive outcome however, was the great outpouring of concern from many faithful readers who e-mailed or phoned to show support and encouragement.

Thank you so much!  Ann

RRW week in review September 27, 2014

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 27, 2014

We have been trying to post weekly reviews here at RRW so new readers could see which posts attracted readers in the previous week. (See past reports in our ‘blogging’ category).  Daily Top Posts are in the right hand side bar.

Below are our top posts for the week ending today.  And, btw, September is going to be our second highest month in terms of readership since we began RRW in 2007. 

July 2014 was our highest month so far and that was largely driven by the ‘Unaccompanied alien children’ invasion on the Southern border when the No borders activists miscalculated by calling the illegals “refugees,” and thus, in my view, negatively educated the whole country about refugees.

Top posts this week:

1. Immigration is key to the “stealth jihad” says Muslim convert to Christianity

2.  Dead Isis fighter had ties to Lewiston, ME

3. Our Fact Sheet (always in the top 3)

Top countries this week were the usual (see past weeks), but for some unknown reason Jamaica made the top ten.

The best way to find information in our archive of 5,000 plus posts is to use the search window and a few key words.  The search function is really very good and I use it every day myself.

If you are a new reader, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

It occurs to me that I do see everyone’s comments to posts because we do screen them (no foul language, no threats), so if you have something you want me to see, I don’t at all mind if you send the link as a comment to a post, even if it’s a little off-topic.

To regular readers, thank you for your continued concern for this very important issue.

Need your population replaced? The UN will be happy to assist

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2014

As the UN General Assembly continues to disrupt New York City, a reader sent us this old (over a decade old) press announcement from the United Nations alerting certain countries that their people were getting old and not having enough kids so it was time to start moving in the replacement population.   No mention here, of course, about the quality and character of the replacement people (replacement workers for big companies?).

UN: We are all here to help make it possible—to help you replace your old people with our poor people!

Readers, remember that the UN chooses most of our (US) refugee populations.  Yes, for some political reason from time to time, the US State Department uses the refugee program for some other foreign policy purpose, but the majority of those arriving now are ones the UN has identified.

Yesterday, we learned that they are already pretty far along with the US, here.

Replacement Migration:
Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?

United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.

Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

So, of course, the UN is busy, out of genuine concern for us, replacing our population!

The UN even has a whole population division working on this “problem.”

Some nagging from me!

This story reminds me that we need more bloggers willing to focus, focus, focus on some aspect of our immigration problem (other issues too!), not bloggers in need of running their mouths on myriad topics to satisfy news junkies all day long.

Basically, my dream blogging force would be research bloggers who would every day (or several times a week) report the news on the topic and dig into documents, reports etc.  Someone could write a whole blog just on this “work” of the United Nations!  Real investigative journalists are rare these days, so some of you reading this right now must become citizen journalists if we are ever going to save this great country.

The more of us there are, the less likely they can shut us up!

Weekly summary for the week ending September 19, 2014

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2014

For a while I was able to post a weekly summary of what was hot here at RRW, but missed it for the last few weeks.

We had a really good week and September is shaping up to be one of our biggest months yet (in seven years).

If you find me repeating things you already know, remember that we welcome new readers every day who are anxious to get up-to-speed on the federal refugee resettlement program.

Here are our top posts this week (you can see the daily top posts in the right hand side bar):

1.  As invasion of Europe continues, Swiss village raises taxes to support one large African family

2.  US State Department:  We are bringing thousands of Syrians out of Turkey to the US

3.  Our Fact Sheet (always makes the top 3)

Here are the top ten countries (excluding the US) from which we received readers.  LOL! I am surprised Switzerland didn’t make it because some readers took umbrage with my characterization of the Swiss and I assumed they were Swiss themselves.

Canada

Australia

UK

Germany

Sweden

Israel  (new to the top ten)

France

Thailand

Netherlands

South Africa

Press mentions:

If you missed it, go here and follow links for my interview by Ginni Thomas at the Daily Caller.   And, go here to see the mention of RRW in an important article at World Net Daily.

Where to find information if you are arriving here at RRW for the first time.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar)

*  See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts seven years ago, use the search function with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city or state to see what we have reported from there over the years.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 289 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.  All of the weekly summaries we have done so far are in the category simply called ‘blogging.’

If you are a new reader, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

It occurs to me that I do see everyone’s comments to posts because we do screen them (no foul language, no threats), so if you have something you want me to see, I don’t at all mind if you send the link as a comment to a post, even if it’s a little off-topic.

To regular readers, thank you for your continued concern for this very important issue.

One last thing!  I am not eager to spend any time up-dating the look of RRW, first because I am tech-impaired and secondly, because we have been at this for so long, I think readers expect to see the format they are used to.  But, I am willing to hear from you if you think RRW needs to be modernized!
