Ann Corcoran at  Refugee Resettlement Watch posted her weekly roundup on Sunday, and RRW is going great guns:
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.a2493e5822dae79e22ab9a8823ba9371_bigger[1]

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!
