Syrian refugee numbers to soar in Nevada in FY2017; cheap labor needed!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 28, 2016
We learned about the Syrian numbers soaring yesterday from Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.
His story is here. If you live in Nevada you need to read this!
We’ve told you about the new resettlement office in Reno on several occasions.
We were fortunate to have an advance copy of the R & P Abstract for Reno long before the fiscal year began (back in May!). You can read about it here and see especially the information on the letters of support that were attached.
It is that Reno Abstract that helped me understand how detailed the Abstracts are and to realize that many being reluctantly released by resettlement contractors to concerned citizens are abbreviated versions.
Unfortunately, unlike many communities developing ‘pockets of resistance’ (Rutland, VT for example), it seemed there was no interest by Reno citizens to question what was coming to their community. Maybe some will speak up now.
However, the office is open in Reno and they are extremely difficult to close once opened (see ‘Ten things you need to know’).
See also our subsequent post on Reno’s new office here where we learned something important! The Dept. of State has identified 47 new sites***!
This is one of the letters of support in the Reno FY2017 Abstract prepared by the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI, the same federal contractor embroiled in controversy in Twin Falls, Idaho and Rutland, VT).
***Here are some of the new or expanding sites we have identified so far:
Traverse City, MI
Watertown, NY (maybe)
Youngstown, OH (maybe)
