Reminder! Visit Friends of Refugees blog

I know I’ve said it before, but I can’t say it enough.  Visit ‘Friends of Refugees’ here where investigative blogger Christopher Coen has some very informative posts about how the US Refugee Resettlement program continues to falter leaving communities struggling and refugees in the lurch.   In Arizona for instance the State Refugee coordinator is begging the US State Department to send no more Iraqis to Arizona.

Meanwhile we hear that this week the Obama Administration will tell Congress that they will aim for 80,000 more refugees in FY 2011 which begins October 1.
