Seattle has a commission on refugees and immigrants, November meeting coming up

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2015

A reader has brought to my attention that there are opportunities for concerned citizens to attend meetings where you can learn more about what is going on where you live and who the principle players are (who are the people in your community calling the shots).

No rent hikes!  What do you think?  Are they getting community organizing training somewhere? You betcha!


See our post last year where Somali community organizers protested an effort by the Seattle housing authority to free up some public housing for 9,000 on a waiting list. The housing authority failed.


In Seattle there is the Immigrant and Refugee Commission.  Here is the meeting schedule for the two remaining meetings this year.  Surely they will be discussing how many Syrians will be seeded in Seattle.

In the last few days we reported on opportunities here in Orlando, FL (one of our readers attended!  thank you!) and here in Minneapolis, MN to attend PUBLIC meetings to learn more about what is happening where you live.  To be effective in standing up for your community, you need to understand how refugee resettlement works and who the players are where you live.

    Why do so few Americans even know this is happening? It is astounding that our national news is completely obfuscating this phenomenon. The culture that rules our national media would silence any criticism of this program as “racist” and “islamophobic” even though Islamism is a SUPREMACIST ideology. We will wind up like Europe if we can’t break through this problem. Thank you so much for the work you are doing!

      So few people know about it because secrecy has surrounded the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department for 35 years. You wouldn’t know about it now if it weren’t for the alternative media (people like us) reaching Americans by circumventing the establishment/corporate media. It is my mission to make sure every town in America is aware of what is about to come their way—-and believe me, they want every town “diversified” eventually. If the town ‘welcomes’ it once they get all the facts, so be it. But, citizens are entitled to all the facts!

    OT but is a follow up to my prior post about the Obama administration removing/banning pork products from all federal prisons:

    Clearly the Bureau of Prisons could not back up their statement that pork was removed because ” prisoners don’t like it ”

    My thoughts exactly: =
    ““I find it hard to believe that a survey would have found a majority of any population saying, ‘No thanks, I don’t want any bacon,’” Dave Warner, spokesman for the trade association,”

    Note the video states “Ohio removed pork in 2011 because of a lawsuit – filed by Muslims” (There you have it —-Muslims = the REAL reason for the pork ban)

    Fortunately – for now – Bacon wins!
