U.S. refugee resettlement policy badly needs comprehensive review and a major overhaul. Ann Corcoran, whose focus on this issue long has been featured at the ‘Refugee Resettlement Watch’ website, here turns her scholarship to a superb study of how refugees are selected and who decides which refugees and how many come to the U.S., as well as where they are placed and who pays the bills for them. Equally as important, she reveals how collaboration among the UN, U.S. government, local charities, and churches too often puts local communities on the receiving end of refugee resettlement out of that decision-making process. This is a critical and timely look at a program whose impact increasingly is affecting American society across the nation.
