First, an apology to my faithful readers. I am overwhelmed with way too much news to report, with requests for information, with requests from media, with requests from some of you about conducting your facebook wars (answered that yesterday and lots of you commented), and so I apologize if I don’t answer all of your e-mails. I simply can’t! (I am trying so hard to balance my life so I don’t burn out!).
It is just me here, me and my computer. The other side has dozens (hundreds!) of organizations, many being paid by you, the US taxpayer, sending out press releases, holding demonstrations and otherwise clamoring to be heard.
There isn’t one national group that exclusively focuses on the Refugee Admissions Program!
Members of the national media know that Donald Trump, when he signed the EO to stop some refugees and migrants from some parts of the world, was responding to you, the people who elected him.
In fact, Rasmussen reported yesterday that 57% of those surveyed last week favor Trump’s temporary moratorium on refugee resettlement.
So, perhaps in a new found desire to ‘balance’ their reporting, I have had several requests to speak to some national news outlets including the New York Times, Al-Jazeera and the LA Times. I’ve decided to write a short post (next) with some of the things I would like to say to them.
But…..they are looking for you!
They want to talk to those of you who have been working in ‘pockets of resistance’ all across America where you have been investigating and educating your communities about cultural, economic and security problems with the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.
They really don’t know people like you!
So, if you want to be called by the national media, send me an e-mail (I promise to look at my g-mail account, left hand side bar, later today and tomorrow). But, put something in the subject line to catch my eye and send me an e-mail address you are willing to have passed along to reporters who are trying to find you.
