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

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



South Africa





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.
