Posted on January 10, 2018

The federal refugee contractors, that altogether receive over a half a billion a year of your money to place refugees in your towns and cities, must be using reporters at Reuters to get their messages out to the public.   Here we have news that Lawrence Bartlett, some of you have seen his advocacy for […]

Far Left Dems trying to rescue Larry Bartlett from purgatory at State Department

Posted on May 20, 2018

This post might be going into the deep state weeds for many readers, but since beltway news hounds read RRW too, this is worth posting. Larry Bartlett, prior to being assigned to the Freedom of Information Office at the State Department, was the main career guru (under the Asst. Sec. of State level) responsible for […]

Sec. of State Tillerson attempting to clear huge FOIA backlog at State Department

Posted on February 3, 2018

The State Department is notorious for either delaying answering ‘Freedom of Information Act’ requests, or never answering them at all. In fact, although I used FOIA a number of years ago with another federal agency, I never bothered with it on the refugee issue knowing of the State Department’s horrible reputation for stonewalling the public. […]

Acting Asst. Secretary of State for PRM, Simon Henshaw, steps down

Posted on January 16, 2018

He says it has nothing to do with the fact that under the Donald Trump Administration the number of refugees being admitted to the US has plummeted. (I checked yesterday and in the first 2 weeks of January only around 200 came in.) For new readers, the Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and […]

Jewish refugee agency to begin closing resettlement sites

Posted on December 16, 2017

As I mentioned yesterday, when I reported that true-believer, Lawrence Bartlett, Director of Refugee Admissions at the US State Department, had been reassigned to Puerto Rico (voluntarily we assume), resettlement contractors*** are in a panic. At Jewish Telegraphic Agency (hat tip: ‘badboylookout’) we learn that the State Department is in talks with its contractors about which […]

Director of Refugee Admissions at Dept. of State reassigned to Puerto Rico

Posted on December 15, 2017

Well this news answers a mystery swirling around the US refugee resettlement industry. Where’s Larry? Lawrence Bartlett, Director of Refugee Admissions is in Puerto Rico.  Of course the assignment could be temporary as that US territory is still not anywhere back to normal. But his departure from the State Department Bureau of Population, Refugee and […]

Arrogant Church World Service closes doors in Poughkeepsie

Posted on December 3, 2017

“And when half the community didn’t agree with this program, they were called racists, bigots and so on.” (Poughkeepsie resident David Cole)   We reported about ten days ago that this was in the cards for Church World Service’s resettlement office where citizens complained “loudly” that they  opposed the opening in the first place, but […]

I repeat: all concerned citizens must ask to attend ‘Quarterly Consultations’ held by refugee contractors in your communities….

Posted on October 10, 2017

….transparency, transparency, transparency should be your mantra! The ‘quarterly consultation’ is required by law and the US State Department has confirmed that the general public is permitted to attend. One of the most important elements of the consultation is the discussion that should be held in public about how many refugees could be placed in […]

St. Cloud, MN residents concerned with refugee resettlement told it is a federal issue

Posted on August 10, 2017

No it isn’t.  Local governments want to pretend they have no role so as to get the monkeys off their backs! First, here is the news about citizens appealing to the city council for a study about the costs of resettlement.  The council voted the proposal down by one vote and said this isn’t a […]

Here we go again, local resettlement agencies operating in secrecy

Posted on June 15, 2017

Electing Donald Trump has apparently changed nothing in the way local refugee resettlement agencies contracted by the federal government treat taxpayers—the very people paying their salaries! I’m beginning to get calls from some of you working in your communities telling me that you are (again!) being barred from “stakeholder” meetings. For new readers “stakeholder” meetings […]
