Sign the petition! Demand local approval for refugee resettlement

It has been just over 24 hours since we told you about the petition, here, to demand transparency from the federal government and a local role in decision-making involving the “seeding” of refugees to towns large and small across America.

I am happy to report that as of this minute there are already 695 who have signed the petition and a quick look at the interactive map reveals that it looks like most US states are represented, plus we have 4 who have signed it elsewhere in the world—2 in Europe and one each in Australia and South Africa.  So, for our readers abroad, please consider signing the petition as well!

(If you click on the little circles the map expands to allow you to see how many from each state have signed already.)

Go here to see who has signed (you can remain anonymous if that makes you more comfortable), but please consider signing.

The federal refugee contractors are getting worried!  How do I know, come back later! I am out of time right now to post more.  ***Update*** HIAS goes on the attack!

  1. Petition signed! \

    From the Office of Refugee Resettlement – I found this info and thought I’d pass it along. The Obama Administration has now classified these children and young adults as “refugees” & “asylum seekers”.( No breakdown as to how many had grey hair or 5 o’clock shadow.)

    2014 & 2015 “unaccompanied children” who have been “passed along to sponsors” by state. Note – California, New York & Florida lead the pack. Vermont had 3. Readers may want to check out their state as there are some surprises. Of course, this info is supplied by DHHS so undoubtedly on the low side of the actual numbers.
