What Somalis are doing for RRW (not to mention the image of Islam and “refugees”)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 25, 2013

Our readership at RRW is going through the roof and it’s almost exclusively because the public is finally beginning to search for information, and understand better, how so many Somalis have “found their way” to America.  Of course we know they didn’t find their way here, but were brought here over more than three decades now through the US State Department’s Refugee Resettlement program with the help of nine major federal contractors.  The mall massacre in Kenya with speculation (no official confirmation yet that I know of) that some of the killers are Americans (former refugees) has prompted this latest round of interest.

See the disturbing images from Nairobi in the UK Daily Mail (hat tip: Ed).

Thousands of new readers visited RRW in the last few days.  And, I’m happy to report that we have exceeded our goal of adding 30 new subscribers in the month of September.  We have 43 new subscribers with five days left in the month!

Almost every search term yesterday related to Somalis.  Here (below) is what people are searching (I took out about 5 searches that didn’t involve Somalis).

To answer the question, which administration brought Somalis to Minnesota?—the answer is all of them since the 1980’s.  George W. Bush had some really big years following 9/11!   Check out our numbers here.

Our most-read post yesterday was this one from 2011:  ‘Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?

      That is so exciting! I think yours might be the first grassroots organization forming around this issue (on the restriction side that is)! Would you like to write a guest post about your website?
