Are you within a 100-mile radius of a resettlement site? If so, you are in the (ever-expanding) target range

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 16, 2016

First, if you haven’t done so already, go to this list (click here) and find out where your closest UN/US State Department designated resettlement office is located.  See the map here.

Then draw a circle one hundred miles out from that city/town.***  If your town is within that circle, you could be seeing some of the huge surge of refugees expected to arrive in the US by September 30th.  (And, of course the following year many more as Obama has promised that at his last opportunity, for FY2017, he will be recommending 100,000, unless a new President comes in and rescinds that order).

Here is an article reader Diane brought to my attention (we mentioned it before, and the link has now been corrected thanks to Diane), but am posting it again because a huge push is on to find new resettlement locations (original ones are now getting very overloaded).

US Together is affiliated with Hebrew Immigration Aid Society, a national resettlement organization, which began plans to open an office in Toledo about five years ago. The Toledo office resettles people within a 100-mile radius of the city.

I first heard this ‘100-mile rule’ in 2007 when a US State Department employee told me about it in relationship to what was happening in my county seat—-Hagerstown, MD.

This bit of information is important as we also now see a push to open more offices that fall within the hundred mile radius of an existing office, but will themselves now serve as another hub with its hundred mile radius.

This is done for several reasons, the first of course is that they need more and more ‘welcoming’ locations with subsidized housing in which to seed refugees, but they also want to be sure relatives are resettled within a reasonable distance of each other.  And, finally, the contractor wants to make it easier for their own staff to get to their new “clients” and get them hooked up with their “services.”

***Look at this cool tool!  You can draw a circle with whatever radius you choose around your town or city!  Click here and try it!

      Hi Lois, Yes, those correspond to the nine major federal contractors working throughout America. Since I’ve been talking about them here for nearly nine years I forget we get new readers every day! They are Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Ethiopian Community Development Council, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, US Conference of Catholic Bishops, US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, and World Relief. There are 300 plus subcontractors working under the nine primary contractors.

    Ann,
    My understanding of the “100-mile rule” is this: within 100 miles of resettlement office or 2-hrs driving time, the latter which is controlling. So, if you can reach the 100-mile limit within 2 hrs, fine; if not, then the limit is dictated by the actual driving time from the resettlement office. In any event, the area encompassed wouldn’t be “as-the-crow-flies”, but the time it takes to navigate the hwy network in place. Area encompassed would, of course, be dictated by the terrain which varies throughout the states. Of course, it’s possible that the rule has been tweeked yet again.
