“New site development guide” for those attempting to make your town a new refugee resettlement site

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 23, 2017

Just now when I was updating RRW with information on finding resettlement offices near you, I came across this guide prepared by the US State Department showing refugee activists what they must do to make your city or town a new site.

Laurence Bartlett (DOS) with an earlier version of the resettlement sites map we can no longer find.

I haven’t had time to read it carefully, but if you are in a pocket of resistance, or fear for your town, you better have a look at this. 

I don’t know when it was posted, but it looks like it was after the November election.

The undated letter of introduction is written by Laurence Bartlett, one of the career bureaucrats Trump’s people will have to deal with.  See here.

If you are a new reader and just beginning to try to understand the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, you might want to visit our ‘Where to find information’ category, here.

      No, it hasn’t stopped yet, but on some days I am feeling the burnout. WordPress sends out e-mails automatically when I post and nothing I can do to find out what the problem is. Best to just come here and visit every day and see what is new.

    In the midst of all of this fuss about the President’s Muslim ban, why is no one speaking out on the Resettlement issue? And who would be the best person or organization to do so? We need a more balanced look at the Islam issue.

    Ann- I came across this site today, the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, which seems to be very pro-refugee. Are you familiar with it?

  4. I have an app called Next Door. It is a neighborhood app where people swap info and things. Got information that Syrians are going to be resettled in my neighborhood. The fun is just starting. I can’t wait to see what their reaction is going to be when the church chimes start playing their spate of 3 hymns at noon and three more at 6 pm. Daily.

      True Muslims wouldn’t mind. We are brothers with Christians. Your problem is these “refguees” are actually the terrorists the USA has been training and supporting to overthrow the Assad regime and now they’re losing, they’ve been running home to their masters. It is worse than you realise, these are NOT normal Muslims they are criminals and mercenaries and lunatics.

    I AGREE WITH YOU. WE CAN BEARLY SUPPORT OURSELVES, LET ALONE HAVE TERRORISTS INFILTRATE US, WHO ARE TRYING TO KILL US. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SO FOR ME IS NOT MAKING THIS AN IMPERATIVE ISSUE. MIND YOU, IT IS A CRITICAL ONE, AND THIS COUNTRY IS IN AN ICU UNIT WITH REFUGEES. BEFORE LONG, WE ARE GOING TO BE GIVING AWAY OUR UNDERWEARS, BOXERS, AND BRAS THAT WE HAVE ON OURSELVES, WE CAN NOT AFFORD TO DO THIS. WE SHALL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE (BUT NOT FOREVER) WHAT TRANSPIRERS, AS FOR ME I SMELL A RAT SOMEWHERE:

  6. Thank you Ann. Now people have specific local names and addresses, instead of just organizations that are hard to pin down. While looking at one organization’s site, I can across this web page asking people to donate household goods to the incoming hordes. In a way, you really can’t blame them for coming, since we pay for their flight here, take care of all their needs, and even set them up in apartments with all furnishings included, all courtesy of our generous nation. Heck, if you are a “refugee” or “asylum seeker” you get much better treatment than our own poor and needy.

    Obama Orders Diversity Training For Bureaucrats Under Trump

    President Barack Obama is ordering select federal departments and agencies – which will be under President-elect Donald Trump’s authority shortly after noon Friday – to conduct mandatory diversity training every two years.

    Obama’s order requires senior leaders, managers and employees who handle recruitment and hiring take the training, which is intended to reduce “unconscious bias” – stereotypes and biases people unknowingly hold, Government Executive reported Tuesday.

    Obama wants the federal workforce to draw “from the rich range of diversity in our nation,” he wrote in the Jan 12. order. The federal government has spent nearly $240 million on diversity training since 2008, including $39.5 million in 2016, according to USASpending.gov.

    The agencies affected are: The Department of the Interior; the U.S. Forest Service; the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works; and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. Obama ordered the national security agencies promote diversity in October. (RELATED: Obama Orders National Security Agencies To Promote Diversity)

    Obama also encouraged the affected agencies to implement “performance and advancement requirements that reward and recognize senior leaders’ and supervisors’ success in fostering diverse and inclusive workplace environments,” the memo said.

    The federal government has hired more veterans and disabled individuals since Obama issued a similar 2011 executive order, Government Executive reported.

    Diverting the workforce at agencies overseeing natural resources could be a way to help make national parks more accessible to minority, low-income and disabled communities, according to Government Executive. (RELATED: Govt Spends $100K To Figure Out Why Black People Don’t Go To Parks)

    The memo also ordered affected agencies to develop ways that “all Americans can experience federal lands and waters and the benefits they provide, and that diverse populations are able to provide input to inform the management and stewardship of these important resources.” (RELATED: Now America’s National Parks Are Racist)

    The Trump administration could ignore Obama’s order, since presidential memoranda don’t carry the force of law, Government Executive reported.
