Away message….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 27, 2015

I’ll be out of the fray until Monday.

While I am gone please visit our newly revamped facebook page for some new or recycled information that you may not know.

The page is here where Kelly is doing a fantastic job of getting some important posts out there.  We reached over 150,000 facebook readers this past week!

 

Syria!

As I leave, if you didn’t see it, please have a look at our post on Syria from earlier in the week.  One of the most important things we can do right now is to support Obama’s FBI which testified before Congress in February that we cannot properly screen Muslim Syrians for entry into the US as refugees.

Nevertheless, the resettlement industry has begun a push to persuade Obama (probably won’t take much persuasion) to raise the ceiling for fiscal year 2015 from 70,000 total refugees to 100,000 so as to bring in large numbers of Syrians!

Please visit the post and see what you can do!

Because we won’t do a weekly round-up this week (where we usually post this information), below is for the many new readers arriving here (thanks to facebook visitors!) who would like to learn how to navigate RRW.

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two points I need to continue to make:

First, we do screen our comments and don’t post any that threaten any kind of violence and we don’t post ones filled with foul language.  An occasional expletive might slip in if the comment is otherwise a good one.  You are always free to disagree with our point of view if you follow those two simple rules.

And the other thing I want to mention is about e-mails that come to you every time we post.  They come directly from wordpress to subscribers.  We don’t send out e-mails.  So, if we are posting too much for your e-mail inbox, then just unsubscribe and visit RRW when you have the time I understand completely about too many e-mails!  You might want to simply follow us on twitter or on facebook (below).

This is where you can find information (in addition to our fact sheet). We have over 6,000 posts.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar)

*  See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts more than seven years ago, use the search window with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.

Readers from Europe should search for key words ‘Invasion of Europe’ for all of our many posts on the migration crisis on the Continent.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 330 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’

If you wish to be notified when we post, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

Because we screen comments, yours won’t appear until we are back in business on Monday.

RRW weekly round-up for week ending March 21st; best day ever last week!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2015

We haven’t posted a round-up for a few weeks because we have been busy, but so has RRW.  Last week we set our biggest one day record with our post on Spartanburg, SC.  That post was clicked on by over 20,000 readers which we think is great for a small narrowly-focused blog like this one.

We hope a number of you let Rep. Trey Gowdy (chairman of the House subcommittee responsible for the refugee program) know how you feel!

This week Spartanburg still tops the list of most-read posts for the week.  See our daily top posts in the right hand sidebar.

Top three posts for the week are:

1) Breaking News: Spartanburg, South Carolina targeted to be colonized as next refugee ‘seed’ community

2) A reader from Malta gives us a look at what the illegal aliens are doing to the tiny island nation

3) Our fact sheet

Top countries (besides the US) from which readers came to visit RRW:

Canada

UK

Australia

Thailand

Germany

European Union (still don’t know why this is here when we have individual country stats)

Netherlands

India

France

Ireland

As we mentioned previously, the primary purpose of our occasional weekly updates is to help new readers get oriented and to help you all find useful information among our 6,000 plus posts!

For new readers!

It occurs to me that I do see everyone’s comments to posts because we do screen them (no foul language, no threats), so if you have something you want me to see, I don’t at all mind if you send the link as a comment to a post, even if it’s off-topic.

To regular readers, thank you for your continued concern for this very important issue.

P.S.  In case you are wondering, this blog is a charitable enterprise on the part of its writers!

Going away….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 13, 2015

We will be missing a lot of news over the next couple of days just at a time when the refugee resettlement issue is heating up.

I’m going here and won’t have the time to post, but will be working to continue to spread the word.  Since your comments are screened, sorry it will be Sunday before I can get to them.

In the meantime, please take the time to explore Refugee Resettlement Watch.

If you are a new reader (or a regular) you might want to visit the last weekly report for instructions on how to find useful information among our over 6,000 posts.

Also, see especially the Top Posts in the right hand sidebar to learn which stories are attracting the most readers at the moment.  By many thousands, our post on Spartanburg, SC broke all records.  Thanks to all who sent it around!  Don’t miss Ten things your town needs to know!’

Be back Sunday!

P.S.  For all of you getting too many e-mails from RRW (via wordpress), you will get a little break this weekend!

RRW weekly round-up for week ending February 28th, new heights reached in February

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 1, 2015

This is one more of our sporadic weekly updates mostly to let readers know what posts were the most interesting over this past week and to provide tips, especially for new readers, on how to find information among our 6,000 plus posts.

And, February saw a new record set for daily visitors–-highest daily numbers in our over 7-year-history.  The numbers aren’t astronomical, but for a narrowly focused blog, we are thrilled at the interest.

Here are the top three most-visited posts this week.

No surprise that all three had to do with Minnesota Somalis. (Daily top posts are in the right hand side bar.)

1. Somali Islamic terrorists threaten attack on Mall of America; we are bringing in over 800 Somali refugees a month right now!

2. Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?

3. US State Department and resettlement contractors salted Minnesota with over 10,000 Somali refugees since 2005

Although not with the shock value of those three posts, I do want you to take note of this post on the structure of the Refugee Admissions Program so you know the names of those responsible for what is happening in your town or city.  It is an important post for members of the media and government watchers in general.

Instead of the top ten countries of the week from which readers came to RRW, this is a list of the top ten countries for the month of February (not including the US of course):

Australia

Canada

UK

Sweden

Germany

Netherlands

European Union (this is new and I don’t know how they come up with this when EU countries appear individually on the list)

France

South Africa

Malta  (of all the countries on the list, I would like to see Malta where they must have a high percentage of people with the will to save their little country!)

 

As we mentioned above, the primary purpose of our occasional weekly updates is to help new readers get oriented and to help you all find useful information among our 6,000 plus posts!

Important error in previous post!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 22, 2015

Sorry to generate yet another e-mail to you, but readers who receive RRW via e-mail have an error in that post.

In my hurry to post the latest news about Somalis in the US, I originally said the numbers at the end were from FY2014, that should have been FY2015! 

Right now, we are bringing in over 800 Somalis a month into the US.

Go here to see the corrected version!

RRW Weekly round-up for the week ending February 13th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 14, 2015

Welcome to new readers/subscribers who arrived here after my few minutes on Fox & Friends this week. 

Most weeks (if we have time) we like to let readers know which stories during the week were being most widely read.  You can see our daily top posts in the right hand side bar, but here are the ones that topped the list for the whole week:

 

1) Somalis colonizing Nacogdoches County, TX

2) Mass Exodus from Muslim Kosovo into Europe

3)  Maine Governor LePage says immigrants pose a health threat to America

Top countries from which readers arrived are many of the ones we are familiar with.  Interestingly, although not making the top ten, but high on the list is the Russian Federation.  We haven’t seen that before.  Here are this week’s top ten (excluding the US of course):

Canada

UK

Australia

Germany

Sweden

France

South Africa

Jamaica

India

Thailand

 

Really the primary purpose of our occasional weekly updates is to help new readers get oriented and to help you all find useful information among our 6,000 plus posts!

RRW does Fox and Friends this morning….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 12, 2015

Yesterday I got a call from Fox asking me to appear on Fox & Friends today and I agreed.  It was a first for me.  I realized how hard it is to say much in a few minutes.   Here is the clip of my interview (thanks to our friend Brenda Walker at Limits to Growth who posted it).

http://video.foxnews.com/v/4048062668001/new-plan-allows-relatives-of-illegal-immigrants-to-enter-us/?playlist_id=940325739001#sp=show-clips

Asked what my biggest problem with the expansion is, this is what I said:

My biggest problem is the lawlessness coming from the White House on this particular issue. I followed the refugee program for the last seven years; this is a major jump in expansion of the program. I also think that immigration is our existential threat in this country, both the numbers and who we are bringing in.

We previously reported on the Obama Administration’s expansion of the refugee program, by magically transforming poor kids in three Central American countries into “persecuted” refugees, here and here.

Tomorrow we promise to be back to our normal posting schedule.

RRW Weekly round-up for week ending February 6th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 8, 2015

Haven’t rounded up for two weeks—away last weekend!

So, I didn’t get to tell you yet that for January 2015 we reached another milestone—best month ever in terms of the number of readers arriving here.

Here are the top most-read posts for this week (top daily posts are in right hand side bar):

1) Australia grapples with Bacha Bazi compulsive predators

2) Seattle Somalis protest against a refugee agency over Mohammed cartoon

3) France: EU shaken by rise of Le Pen in polls

Top countries from which visitors arrived (besides the US):

Australia

Canada

UK

France

Malta (those Maltese seemed to like the Le Pen story)

New Zealand

Germany

Sweden

Netherlands

Finland

And, although we don’t normally go beyond the top ten, next after Finland was Romania (that is a first to find that country so high on the list).

Really the primary purpose of our occasional weekly updates is to help new readers get oriented and to help you all find useful information among our 6,000 plus posts!

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two new comments from me:

RRW takes a break!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2015

But, we won’t be sunning in some warm climate!  I’ll be at a conference in St. Louis to speak about the refugee program and won’t be posting.  I’ll report on the event when I return on Sunday.

I’m telling you this so that you know if you don’t see your comments posted, or you’ve e-mailed me and get no response, you know why!

On the e-mails generally, I get hundreds every day and only have time to look at a few, so please accept my apologies if you write and don’t hear from me even when I am here.   I don’t know how to solve that problem unless I get a staff (or even an intern!) somehow.

If you are arriving here for the first time, please spend some time searching our site for news you could use.  We have over 6,000 posts and the best way to find something is to start with your city, state, or country name in the search bar.    Also, have a look at our categories and our tags for topics of interest.  See last week’s ’round-up’ for more tips on finding information here.

I’m hoping that this opportunity in St. Louis will be the beginning of a national grassroots initiative that addresses the US Refugee Admissions Program and its much-needed reform!

RRW weekly roundup for the week ending January 23rd, 2015

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 24, 2015

This month we are on target to having the best daily visitor average ever!  However, since I am going away to speak about refugees at the end of the coming week and won’t be able to post for three days, we might not make it to the best month ever (which so far is October 2014).

We didn’t publish a weekly summary last week mostly because the same posts that topped the list were the same ones that everyone was reading the previous week!  And, because I am lazy sometimes!

I don’t get it, but one of those posts is still the Top Post three weeks running!  Here are this week’s top three (daily top posts are in the right hand side bar):

1)  Syrian Muslims headed to North Dakota, Nebraska and Kentucky  (LOL! Don’t think you are off the hook if you live in another state, just about every state is going to get some!)

2)  Denmark: How its Muslim immigrants are destroying the country (economically and culturally)

3)   Construction of new mosque in Twin Falls, ID the result of Muslim refugee influx

Top countries

Here are the top ten countries from which we received readers (excluding the US) this past week.  Looks like many of the usual ones:

UK

Canada

Australia

France

South Africa

Germany

Netherlands

Sweden

Kenya

Finland

Slightly lower on the list and much more interesting are: Jamaica, Japan, Israel, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Turkey, Czech Republic and Saudi Arabia.

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two new comments from me:

First, we do screen our comments and don’t post any that threaten any kind of violence and we don’t post ones filled with foul language.  An occasional expletive might slip in if the comment is otherwise a good one.  You are always free to disagree with our point of view if you follow those two simple rules.
