Weekly round-up for week ending December 23, 2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 24, 2016

Note: As I began writing this post, Firefox appears to be blocking access to RRW.  I don’t know what is up with that, so I’ve switched to Chrome for now….let me know if you are having problems too!

I debated whether to post this photo—I’ll call it the photo of the week—but decided to do it because there is no sense sugar-coating where the western world is this Christmas.

In the wake of the Berlin Islamic terror attack…..

Here are our Top Three Posts of the week (top daily most popular posts are in the right hand side bar):

Somalis pouring in to US in first 10 weeks of the fiscal year, could be biggest year ever for Somalis

What the hell! Somali American goes HOME for visit to Somalia!

Austin, TX mayor works with White House to welcome Syrians against official state position

For new readers, I have a good summary of how to use RRW and find information at the end of both the October roundup, here, and at the end of the November roundup, here.

And, many thanks to everyone who has suggested that I might be useful to the Trump team. I am flattered, but there are several good people I know who hope to be placed in agencies involving refugee resettlement in the Trump Administration, so let’s hope the Trump Transition Team has the good sense to hire them!

As for me, who would write RRW if I was busy in DC battling bureaucrats every day? And, besides, I need to be right here, not only informing you, but ready and willing to keep Donald Trump and his people honest if they stray from Trump’s campaign promises on immigration!

Merry Christmas!
