As of the close of business today, you are THREE YEARS BEHIND in reporting to Congress the full economic and social impact of the large numbers of refugees being resettled to the US. See reports here.
The Office of Refugee Resettlement is REQUIRED BY LAW to submit a report to Congress by January 31st of the year following the end of the previous fiscal year. The last report filed is 2007. So ORR now owes Congress and the public 2008, 2009 and 2010. Those are the worst years so far of the great recession and we can only conclude that ORR does not want to reveal to the public the dismal financial situation the refugees and the volags (federal contractors) are in!
Readers, if you have never looked at an annual report, check out 2007 and see what an incredible trove of information these reports contain. Can you just imagine what the unemployment numbers are today or the welfare usage when over 50% of refugees in 2007 were on food stamps.
For just a reminder of what the refugee/asylum program costs you, go here.
