RRW Monthly round-up for March 2015; Top month ever!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 2, 2015

Thanks to social media expert Kelly, March 2015 is the top month for readers at RRW in our almost 8 years of publishing the only website in the world (that we know of!) focusing specifically on problems with the US Refugee Admissions Program and asylum and refugee problems worldwide.


Our highest number of visitors ever was on March 26th during the same week that our facebook page reached over 200,000!

The Top Posts for the month were these (see our Top Daily posts in the right hand sidebar):

1.  Breaking News!  Spartanburg, SC targeted to be colonized as next refugee seed community

2.  Tensions grow in St. Cloud, MN as more Somalis move in with help of Lutherans

3.  Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is responsible for the Somali chaos in St. Cloud

Honorable mention and not far behind is a post every new reader must read!

Ten things your town needs to know when (if!) welcoming refugees for the first time

Top ten countries from which readers arrived this month (excluding the US) are:





European Union



South Africa



For new readers….

Normally, in one of these updates we have a section explaining to new readers how to use RRW and find information, but we’ll let you check out that information at our last weekly update, here, archived at our category entitled ‘blogging,’ here.
