If you are arriving here for the first time, I feel sure you can find just about anything you would like to learn about among our 6,000 plus posts.  Use categories and tags, but the easiest way to find something is to type a couple of key words into our search window.

RRW week in review for week ending October 10th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 10, 2014

For new readers, we occasionally highlight at the end of the week the top posts for the week and the top countries from which readers arrive at RRW.  Previous reports like this one are archived in our blogging category.

For this week the top posts are:

1) Our fact sheet (always in the top three)

2)  Fiscal Year 2014 Wrap-up

3) Norway deports Somalis, but Somali government refuses to take them

For daily top posts see our right hand side bar.

Here are the top countries from which readers arrived at RRW this week (in descending order).  Of course, we exclude the US which is naturally always #1:

Canada

Australia

United Kingdom

Germany

Lebanon (new this week)

Ireland (new this week)

France

Norway

Netherlands

India

We have written 5,996 posts to date so the best way to find information here is to use the categories, tags or to use a couple of key words in our search window!

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.  And, sorry for the repetition sometimes, but there are new people joining us every day who know nothing about this complex program aimed at moving third-worlders to Western countries.

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!

Welcome to all of our new readers!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 2, 2014

The Daily Caller interview we did last week has resulted in a welcome flood of new readers.

You have arrived at a point (mentioned here a few days ago) where I am planning to take a break and return writing shorter posts more frequently (if possible! because there is so much news on “refugees” now) and will use links to direct you to some of our previous 5,000 plus posts for background.  I’m pretty sure you can set up a digest if you find you are receiving too many e-mails in a day.

If you have just arrived and want to learn more, my best suggestion is to use our search window.  For example, you might type in your city or state and see what we have written about where you live.  LOL!  I don’t recommend typing in just ‘Somalis’ though unless you want to see a list of at least 500 posts on that subject!

I notice some of you are checking our ‘your state’ category which we have been remiss in keeping up.  So, it’s best to type your state into the search window as I just mentioned.

And, I apologize in advance for not being able to answer all of your e-mails.  Put something catchy in the subject line, or put a question there so I might see it more easily.

My break is over!  Welcome!

Daily Caller interview by Ginni Thomas

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 1, 2014

I was honored to be interviewed by Ginni Thomas for her “Leaders” series last week.  You can see the 22-minute interview by clicking here. (May take a few seconds to load video, or at least it does on my computer!).

More of Ginni Thomas’s interviews may be found by clicking here: http://dailycaller.com/author/ginni-thomas/

Here is some of the text introduction:

As Labor Day looms, President Obama’s immigration policy looks to become a war on American workers. Without prioritizing who’s allowed to come to America, former liberal Ann Corcoran says “the American worker loses. The numbers are too high. We can’t assimilate this many people.”

Marylander Ann Corcoran, who says she was “tea party” before the movement existed, has written a daily blog, as a volunteer activist, at Refugee Resettlement Watch for the last seven years to inform and engage citizens.

Refugee Resettlement Watch is a small but growing daily blog focused on how the government has resettled over 3 million refugees since 1975. Without any financial backing, she is doing what the media and Congress have failed to do – tracking how a federal program is functioning. Corcoran, who has published over 2,500 [5,868--ed] posts now, says “the open border left wants no borders.” And those involved with resettling refugees with the U.N. and Washington want no scrutiny of this program.

More here.

RRW weekly summary for the week ending August 30th, 2014

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 31, 2014

For the last few weeks, I have been giving you all a summary of how we are doing here at RRW including top posts and top countries from which readers arrived.  Click here for all of the previous reports.

This week’s report follows below.

I didn’t get to this summary sooner because our internet had been down late in the week.  Not able to have my daily fix of posting, I realized I need a break—a little vacation from blogging to catch my breath and to catch up on reading and your e-mails.   So, you may hear from me in the coming days only if something earth-shattering happens.   And, when I do post I’m thinking of trying to post more (but shorter!) posts every day.  I’ve tried that before, but it’s hard to bring the new readers (who arrive daily) along without additional explanation.  So we will see how it works!

Our top posts of the past week are as follows (you can see daily Top Posts in the right hand sidebar):

1.  Australian website (Pickering Post) posts what the Australian Left-media doesn’t want you to see

2.  Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?

3.  Our fact sheet

Top countries from which readers have arrived in the past week.  The US is always first, and Canada, the UK and Australia switch around from week to week.

Australia

Canada

United Kingdom

Germany

India

Thailand

United Arab Emirates (new this week in top ten)

South Africa

Japan (new this week)

Turkey

While I am taking a break, please search RRW for topics of interest.  There are 5,868 posts here.  The best way to find something is by typing a couple of key words into the search window.

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.

RRW’s week in review (August 17-23)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2014

Continuing something we began several weeks ago, here is information about how we did this week.

Our numbers are down a little, but not that much considering that this is probably the most important vacation time outside of Christmas when most people just want to escape from having to consider thorny issues.  Although I must say the news is pretty awful this August and hard to get away from.

Our top three most-visited posts this past week (out of 5,855 posts we have written!) were:

1.  Our fact sheet.

2.  One more reason for foreign nationals to continue to stay in the US—Ebola.

3.  Athens, GA mayor attempting to put brakes on proposed resettlement of refugees.

You can see our daily ‘top posts’ in the right hand sidebar (just below ‘recent posts’).  For our previous weekly reviews, go here.

By the way, I had to laugh.  A commenter somewhere (I forget where) said that RRW was a useful resource but strangely organized.  I don’t remember the exact words (I think ‘strange’ was the word used), but wonder what is so strange about it?  LOL! It is perfectly organized in my head.  We have categories, and tag clouds and we have 5,855 posts!  How else could we organize it?  And, besides, readers can simply type in a few key words in the search window and quickly find anything we have written on a specific topic going back seven years.  What more could you want from a free educational resource?

The best way to keep up with this complicated material is to read our posts every day filled with many links to previously reported information!

Top countries:

Top countries from which we received readers outside the US didn’t change much (the first three switch around every week) and are as follows:

Australia

UK

Canada

Germany

Sweden

South Africa

India

Thailand

Netherlands

Greece  (new this week in the top ten)

And, it’s worth mentioning that number 11 is Saudi Arabia this week.

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

Apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day (no secretaries, no assistants and no interns here!).
