Ann Corcoran was educated at Rutgers and Yale Universities and is a conservative grassroots activist who was busy raising children and rescuing senior horses onher farm in Western Maryland in 2007, when she learned that the Virginia Council of Churches had been quietly dropping off Muslim refugees from Russia (among others) in Hagerstown, the county seat of Washington County, Maryland.
Shebegan researching the program, simply motivated by wanting to better understand the governmental process of the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program and how itwas possible for a non-profit "church" group to choose a rural community inanother state for resettlement of impoverished and culturally/religiously diverse people without any local approval or discussion.
To help keep trackof what she learned and to help others around the country with the sameconcerns, she began writing the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, which has now become the go-to place on the internet for anyone wishing to understand the UN-federal government initiative to "change" cities large and small across 49states.
She reports on the states rights issues and the unfunded mandates with their social impacts and costs on communities and citizens, maintaining that local governments and citizens have every right to know all the facts about what impact a large number of impoverished and culturally and religiously diverse third world immigrants might have on a small town or city and gives prescriptions on how to help make citizens' voices heard.
This is a legal immigration program that is in desperate need of reform. Mrs. Corcoran also reports on refugee and asylum seeker problems world-wide with a special concern for what is happening to Europe as migrants from the Middle East and Africa flood European countries.
In early 2015, the Center for Security Policy Press published her monograph in book form entitled: ˜REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT AND THE HIJRA TO AMERICA.' By Ann Corcoran available at Amazon.
