Refugee Resettlement Watch

RRW Monthly round-up for October 2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 2, 2016

Didn’t get around to my sporadic weekly roundup on Saturday, so since it was so close to the end of the month, I’m posting a round-up for the month of October. A big month here—readership in a week is more than my first half year in 2007!  And, as I mentioned in a post this morning about Denmark, we have readers from all over the world—from 182 countries and territories just in October!

You should know that there is way too much to cover on the topic of refugees that I can’t possibly keep up by myself and luckily lots of media outlets are picking up refugee news (LOL!) other than fluffy puffy news about refugees seeing their first snow. Breitbart and World Net Daily are two online publications with regular refugee news.***

Although now that November is here, be ready for lots of warm and fuzzy news about refugees and Thanksgiving.  The resettlement contractors make it a point each year to hold Thanksgiving dinners for newly arrived refugees and invite in the local press (Propaganda 101!).

Without further ado, here are the Top Three Most Visited Posts of the last month.

This is insane! Taxpayers pay rent for Somalis who feel the need to visit Somalia (for months!)

Obama State Department bringing refugees in at the astronomical rate of over 400 a day!

One town in Michigan is fighting for its survival as county targeted for even more Middle Eastern refugees

By the way, this number 3 top post was only published on the 27th of October so it did get a huge number of hits ( in only a few days) to be in the top 3.

Top ten countries excluding the US from which readers arrived at RRW in the month of October:

Canada

UK (will be watching the UK numbers more closely as a report yesterday from a reader suggested RRW might be being blocked there)

Australia

Germany

South Africa

Norway

India

France

Netherlands

Sweden

For new readers:

This (below) is my usual information to new readers so you can catch up with the last nine years of RRW.

RRW is a blog, a news outlet, not an organization with an office and staff.

I want you to be able to find information here where nearly 8,000 posts are archived!

Are you having problems with your subscription?  I’ve heard from several of you lately that you are not receiving your usual e-mail notices.  I have no control over that.  Those e-mails are managed directly by wordpress. I recommend that if you are having trouble (or you are getting too many every day), then simply visit here from time to time and just scroll back through recent posts.

Also, if you visit regularly you can use the search window using a few key words and find some important information among almost 8,000 posts going back to 2007!  If you are seriously interested in this issue, you won’t be getting the most out of RRW by simply reading posts in e-mail notices.

Also, see our newly updated Frequently Asked Questions and our fact sheet (out of date but still useful) in the header. In the FAQ you will see a link for ‘Ten things your town needs to know.’

I’ve been tweeting a lot and sometimes if I can’t write about a story you send, I tweet it.  See my twitter feed (over 5,000 followers at this moment) in the right-hand side bar. Even if you aren’t on twitter, you should be able to open the links to the news embedded in the tweet.  I am@RefugeeWatcher.

Likewise you might want to ‘like’ and follow RRW’s facebook page, here.  See it also in the left-hand side bar. It has over 33,000 likes now.  A friend helps me there (because I stink at facebook) so you will see other related news there that is not on RRW.

If you are looking for fellow grassroots activists in ‘pockets of resistance’ see the Refugee Resisters facebook page here (Jim Simpson).

All previous round-ups and this one are archived in a category simply called ‘blogging.’

My FIRST video about how the refugee program works is here (over 2.5 million views as of this writing).

All comments you submit are screened and we don’t post threats of violence, most foul language, or ad hominem attacks on other commenters.  Sometimes I am away from the computer for many hours, so you may not see your comment posted quickly.

As much as I would love to see you all in your hometowns, I hate speaking. I think I am more useful right here researching and writing.

In one week from today we will know if there is any hope of reforming this out-of-control refugee program or not! Go Trump!
