RRW wrap-up for week ending November 15th

We didn’t post a wrap-up last week because I just didn’t get to it.  But, much to my surprise our top post (again) this week is the one about Somalis going from Colorado, where there is now apparently a serious overload of refugees looking for subsidized housing, to Wyoming to pick up housing vouchers they can take back and use in Colorado.

Here are the top most-visited stories this week (Top daily posts are in the right-hand sidebar):

1)  So why are those Somalis moving to Cheyenne, WY? Prepare to be shocked

2)  Malta writer: no “illegal” migrants just “irregular” ones, and you are a racist if you don’t see that

3)  Our fact sheet (always in the top three most-read posts)

Top ten countries (excluding the US).  And, check this out, for the first time another country pushed aside one of the usual top three and came in at number one—Malta!

Malta  (those Maltese must have really liked our Malta writer post!)






South Africa

New Zealand



If this month’s high number of visitors continues through November, we could top our top month ever (October) in terms of readership.

And, since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel.  For new readers:

This is where you can find information if you are arriving here at RRW for the first time (in addition to the fact sheet linked above). 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 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.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 307 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

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

If you are a new reader, 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!

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.
