Editor: There are so many stories coming my way from all over the country about where Syrians are being resettled that I will never be able to post them all. I do tweet as many as I can, so please follow me on twitter and see my twitter feed in the right hand column here at RRW.
I’m posting this one on Baltimore because it made me laugh. The International Rescue Committee (one of nine major federal resettlement contractors) is touting “safe” Baltimore as a place to drop off mostly Muslim Syrian refugees.
We’ve told you about Baltimore here, just after the riots earlier this year. And, we wonder what the African Americans of Baltimore think of this—jobs and a free apartments for refugees!
Do you think this insertion of ethnic diversity is more fuel for Baltimore’s fire? I do.
From CBS Baltimore:
The International Rescue Committee in Baltimore has welcomed 26 Syrians by providing them with the tools to succeed, including a furnished apartment and even employment.
“When you get a safe place like Baltimore or the U.S. and you have the opportunity to rebuild your whole life,” said Chandrasekar, “how motivated do you think you would be? That’s what we see everyday when we welcome a refugee into the Baltimore area.”
The Baltimore office is primarily funded through federal dollars, but a lot of donations come from the community.
Over the last 15 years, the IRC has resettled 12,000 refugees from all over the world here in central Maryland.

I told you here that the questionable Muslim charity—Islamic Relief USA—was helping Syrian refugees get established in Kentucky.
Please go to the Clarion Project and learn about how this huge charity is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood!
