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.

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!).

Weekly round-up of top stories and top countries; where to find information

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 16, 2014

I forgot about my Friday round-up yesterday, so here it is a day late!

Our Top Posts for the week are as follows (you can also see our Top Posts daily in the right hand sidebar):

1.   US State Dept. contractor resettles first Syrian Sunni Muslims to Georgia

2.   Our fact sheet

3.   The plot thickens in the Philadelphia immigration fraud arrest of Hayatullah Dawari

 Top ten countries from which visitors arrived at RRW (after the US of course).   For previous reports go to our category simply called ‘blogging.’

United Kingdom

Canada

Australia

South Africa

France

Thailand

India

Germany

Turkey  (new this week to the top ten)

Norway  (new this week to the top ten)

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.

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.

Top posts (top countries) for the week ending August 8th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 8, 2014

A few weeks ago, we started a Friday round-up of sorts to bring to your attention the posts that garnered the most visitors in the preceding week.  You can see those previous reports in our category entitled blogging.

1. The most read post of the week was:  Our fact sheet

2. Owners of dogs which killed jogger were asylum frauds, should have been deported by now

3.  And just posted yesterday, the most important news of the week in my opinion:  US State Dept. contractor resettles first Syrian Sunni Muslims to Georgia

Top ten countries this past week in the number of visitors from outside the US (last week’s top ten are here—July our top month in seven years!):

Australia

Canada

UK

Thailand

South Africa

Malaysia (new this week in the top ten)

Germany

Jamaica (new this week)

India

Denmark (new this week)

Why do we do this charitable work almost every day?

Because you have a right to know what the government and their contractors plan for your community!  And, because you need to know that border invasions are happening around the world.

Friday round-up: July 2014 best month ever for RRW!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 1, 2014

Refugee Resettlement Watch was launched in July 2007 (see ‘about’ if you have never read it) and this July we recorded our best month in all of those seven years as the issue of phony refugees (unaccompanied alien children) has galvanized the public’s attention on the whole refugee program of the US government.

There is a silver lining in the recent border crisis!  Finally lots of researchers and writers (and a few real reporters!) are digging into the finances and the political goals of the “charitable organizations” driving the open borders movement.  More researchers and more bloggers are needed, however!

Our readership increased by almost 100% since May.

If you haven’t noticed our daily Top Posts in the right hand sidebar, the top three with the most readers, for this week, are:

Will the federal government resettle hundreds of Congolese refugees in Dover, NH?

Refugee Resettlement Fact Sheet

Senator Jeff Sessions: Melt Congressional phone lines on Monday!

Top ten countries this week, and apologies again to readers from around the world that we haven’t been writing enough about your ‘refugee’ problems and illegal alien invasions since so much is happening with ours.  Of course, most of our readers come from the US, but here (below) are the top ten countries from which we hosted readers (in descending order) this past week.

The top three are usually the same; new in the top ten this week are Malta, India and Sweden.  (See last week’s round-up here.)

UK

Canada

Australia

Germany (#6 last week)

Thailand (#7 last week)

Malta

South Africa (#5 last week)

France (#9 last week)

India

Sweden

If you are a new reader (we have a lot this week!), 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.

P.S. to critics:  This is a charitable enterprise on my part, let’s just call it an ‘act of love’ to spend hours every day informing average taxpaying American citizens about the migrant tide (much of it LEGAL) flooding our towns and cities through a morass of government programs dressed up to look like ‘religious charity.’

Bottom line! You have a right to know what they plan for your community!

Friday round-up: Top posts, top countries

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 25, 2014

Since I don’t know how many readers have a look at our Top Posts every day in the right hand sidebar, thought maybe I would, at the end of each week, give a brief summary of what readers were most interested in over the previous seven days.

Here are the top three this week:

Athens, GA:  Do you know you will soon be receiving hundreds of third-worlders?

Tennesseans urging US Senators to block possible border surge to Tennessee

Refugee Resettlement Fact Sheet

Of course the lion’s share of our readers come from the US, but here are the top ten countries from which readers came to RRW in the past seven days (although there were about another 140 countries on the list).  In descending order:

United Kingdom

Canada

Australia

Hong Kong

South Africa

Germany

Thailand

Afghanistan

France

Pakistan

It is only July 25th, but already this month we have broken all records for readership and we are recording the largest number of  readers here in our seven-year history.

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

New blog: Refugee Racket Exposed!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 22, 2014

Reader ‘Jan Sobieski’ has launched a new blog critical of the Refugee Admissions Program of the US State Department and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) entitled Refugee Racket Exposed!

Editor:  I’ve been complaining lately about the fact that this subject is becoming way too big for just a few of us to keep up with and report on, so we welcome Mr. Sobieski’s entry into the fray.  As a matter of fact, I haven’t said it lately but we need MORE bloggers following all of our LEGAL misguided (insane!) immigration programs.  I’m thinking particularly of the Diversity Visa Lottery and Temporary Protected Status and of course Refugee Resettlement.  Please consider joining the blogger army—your help is desperately needed.

Here is what Mr. Sobieski says about his mission (emphasis is mine):

The purpose of Refugee Racket Exposed (RefugeeRacket.com) is simple – Expose the refugee and asylum system that has developed in the US and make Congress investigate the fraud and corruption and the negative impact the refugee racket industry has on America and Americans.

The Refugee Racket system is a multibillion dollar racket and controls the importation and/or settlement of over 150,000 refugees and asylum seekers into the US at taxpayer’s expense. I intend to expose the players who game and corrupt the system and to educate Congress about this abused program. Congress needs to dramatically scale back and reform the refugee and asylum industry. Taxpayers are on the hook for the refugees and asylum seekers resettlement in more ways than you can imagine. You pay for all of it. The Refugee Racket is the perfect example of the adage ‘The road to hell is paved with good intentions.’ In America today, it is dangerous to rock the boat. You will be attacked, and in some cases, physically harmed by those within the refugee racket. For this reason, I post under the pseudonym Jan Sobieski to protect myself and my family from harm. If you don’t know who Jan Sobieski is, google it.

Also, please see Mr. Sobieski’s excellent letter to Congress about why an investigation of the whole program must be forthcoming.

Visit Refugee Racket Exposed!   You can reach Mr. Sobieski at refugeeracketwebteam@gmail.com.

We are adding Refugee Racket Exposed to our blogroll.

As our 7th anniversary approaches….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 17, 2014

RRW needs help!

From the editor:

 I believe we are now at a crisis stage in America like no other in 150 years!

It hardly seems possible, but in a few weeks Refugee Resettlement Watch (see our ‘About’ page) will be seven years old!  Almost every day for seven years we have posted some news on the US Refugee Admissions program directed by the United Nations (carried out by the US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement in HHS and their contractors***) and related issues involving LEGAL and sometimes illegal immigration.

We began with 14 viewers in the month of June ’07 and that was probably a few tech helpers just testing the site!  Recently we have had 45,000 viewers in a month and they come from all over the world!   We have written 5,660 posts to date and, as I said, rarely miss a day!

Our facebook readers sometimes surpass 30,000 in a week!

I’m writing this, not to toot our horn, but to say that it is really concerning me that I can’t keep up with all of your e-mails and inquiries and write posts too.

But, please keep sending me articles because the growing number of concerned citizens are the greatest information resource I have for what is going on in your states with refugees and with the ever-expanding number of migrants being labeled as “refugees,” and with the large number coming from Muslim countries.   If I don’t always respond, please know that I am here without helpers!  LOL!  No secretaries, no interns, no nothing!

Perhaps as the invasion on the border continues, with the mostly teenaged boys being treated like refugees, the large immigration control groups (I won’t name names, you know who you are) will get in gear and pay attention to the Refugee program (assign some staff to it!) which they have largely ignored these last seven years.

Bottom line:  this week as World Refugee Day approaches on Friday—we need help!  The issue is too big for a volunteer blogger in the basement!  If you are a member of the big immigration control groups, tell them to pay attention to the refugee program and since the contractors are lobbying especially this week (in the media and on The Hill), take time to let your elected officials know (at all levels of government) how you feel about the ever-expanding resettlement of third-worlders into your towns and cities.  Bombard especially Rep. Trey Gowdy!

Thank you!!!   Ann

***The contractors (who, by the way, also are lobbying for amnesty because they will be paid to “service” the new “clients!”):
