Wholesale movement of Bhutanese refugees to US to end (so they say!)

Posted on November 19, 2017

But, the UN still has 8,500 more to go to completely clean out their camps in Nepal. The other day I mentioned that the US under Obama committed to helping the UN clean out some of its African camps of the people from the DR Congo and I predicted the resettlement would go way beyond […]

Nearly 100,000 Bhutanese refugees later we help UN clean out camps in Nepal

Posted on December 28, 2016

Lesson! When the Department of State welcomes an ethnic group to America expect the resettlement to be larger and longer than they initially said it would be. We have followed the process of cleaning out UNHCR camps in Nepal of Bhutanese refugees ever since the Bush Administration said: ‘come on in’ we well take 60,000.  […]

Concord, NH: Bhutanese refugees’ religious ceremony draws neighbors’ ire

Posted on October 17, 2015

I’m running out of time this morning after writing so much about Allentown, PA, but want to get a few more things posted before I have to move on to other of life’s duties. Over a week ago a large gathering of Bhutanese refugees disturbed a quiet Concord neighborhood with chanting, large numbers of people […]

Bhutanese refugees in Ohio need more costly mental health care due to high suicide rate

Posted on July 21, 2015

There is nothing new in this story from the The Columbus Dispatch.  We have reported ad nauseum about the high suicide rate among Bhutanese (really Nepali) refugees first admitted during the Bush Administration.  Even before Bush’s Asst. Secretary of State for Population Refugees and Migration, Ellen Sauerbrey, gave the go-ahead to resettle 60,000 from UN […]

U. of Vermont psychologists helping Bhutanese refugees with mental problems; send more refugees to Vermont!

Posted on January 20, 2015

There really isn’t much new and exciting in this story, but I’m posting it because I was interested in the small number of refugees going to Vermont, after all, Vermont’s senior Senator Patrick Leahy has, over the years, been a big pusher for more refugees and more stuff for them. We have had many many […]

Intriguing one line: Bhutanese refugees “forced” to go to America?

Posted on January 16, 2015

This isn’t the first time we have seen ‘hints’ that some Bhutanese refugees weren’t happy about the fact that 80,000 plus of them were sent to the US over the last seven years or so. I guess “hints” isn’t the right word. Here in October of last year we reported on the updated news about […]

First Bhutanese refugee advocacy day on Capitol Hill; they would like Congress to help them get home

Posted on November 24, 2014

In 2007, just as RRW was getting off the ground, the Bush Administration said that the US would “welcome” 60,000 Bhutanese (mostly Hindu) here over 5 years (read one of many accounts, here). We are now up to 80,000 of the Bhutanese (really Nepali people) who were booted out of Bhutan after living there for […]

Below is where you can find more information at the CDC website. For the Bhutanese the big concerns are nutritional […]

High rate of suicide among Bhutanese refugees resettled in US continues; some wish they had stayed in camps

Posted on October 8, 2014

For new readers, please visit our Bhutanese archive for background because I would have to write a book to bring you up to speed.  We have been taking thousands of Bhutanese (Nepalese) refugees ever since the Bush Administration began admitting them in 2007 (or was it 2008), it doesn’t matter, the bottom line is now […]

Rochester, NY: Bhutanese refugees fear violence from African Americans

Posted on July 2, 2014

The US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) and whichever resettlement contractor they used in Rochester, NY to resettle these Bhutanese (Nepalese) are a bunch of nincompoops! They must think that if they plunk down some new minority into an African American neighborhood that all of those people of different colors will somehow […]
