Refugee Resettlement Watch

RRW Weekly roundup for week ending October 10, 2015

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 11, 2015

I’m going to do this quickly because there is so much more juicy news to get to this morning.

***Update*** There is so much breaking news on refugees that I can’t possibly post it all! So please follow me on twitter or follow the twitter feeds in my right hand sidebar to keep up with the news!  I am @RefugeeWatcher, click here.

If you didn’t see my Frequently Asked Questions post this week, please see it here (I’ve added it as a page under our header). There is information there about media requests and speaking invitations.

The For New Readers section below is a repeat because we get new readers every day!  If you read that section below and the FAQs (mentioned above), I think many of your questions for me will be answered.

Here are the Top Three Posts of the last week.  Top Daily Posts are in the right hand sidebar.

1)World Relief targeting Northern Idaho for refugee resettlement!

2)Connecticut Senator Blumenthal wants more Syrians here faster, proposes to eliminate some screening

3)Update: Who was that man over Senator Blumenthal’s left shoulder?

Top ten countries from which we received readers (excluding the US):

Canada

UK

Australia

Germany

Norway

Netherlands

EU (again I don’t know what they mean by this since individual European Union countries are listed)

France

Austria

Sweden

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two points I need to continue to make:

First, we do screen our comments (sometimes I don’t get to them right away!) and I don’t post any that threaten any kind of violence or ones filled with foul language.  An occasional expletive might slip in if the comment is otherwise a good one.  You are always free to disagree with our point of view if you follow those two simple rules.

And the other thing I want to mention is about e-mails that come to you every time we post.  They come directly from wordpress to subscribers.  We don’t send out e-mails.  So, if we are posting too much for your e-mail inbox, then just unsubscribe and visit RRW when you have the time I understand completely about too many e-mails!  You might want to simply follow us on twitter or on facebook (below).

This is where you can find information (in addition to our fact sheet). We have over 7,000 posts.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar, now a drop-down)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since the categories do not go all the way back to our first posts more than eight years ago, use the search window with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.

Readers from Europe should search for key words ‘Invasion of Europe’ for all of our many posts on the migration crisis on the Continent.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 390 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’

If you wish to be notified when we post, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook! (We are no longer posting every story we write at RRW to facebook so as not to overload your facebook feed either.)  We also have some content on facebook that isn’t posted here first, so like us and follow us (I do have a volunteer helper at facebook—Kelly Monroe Kullberg).

I’m trying to be better about tweeting, so please follow me!  I’ve even begun displaying my twitter feed in the right hand side bar here at RRW.

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!

Thanks to all of you for following RRW.  The subject is on fire (maybe you have noticed)!
