U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants Annual Report 2011.
Produced by the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, (USCRI).
The 2011 Annual Report of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants is now available online. 2011 was a very successful year for USCRI. In our Annual Report, you will learn more about USCRI’s accomplishments to protect those fleeing repression and strife, to serve the uprooted, and to help them to integrate into their new American communities.
In 2011 we launched a national program to help the victims of human trafficking, grew our services to aid unaccompanied migrant children in need of legal representation, and expanded the reach of our resettlement services into three new communities. The network of our 33 partner agencies across the country continued to broaden their services to immigrants.

New report from IRR, which “brings together over 100 cases, mostly from EU countries, but also Switzerland and Norway, which documents patterns of violence, from the peddling of hate online and the drawing up of lists of ‘national traitors’, to violence, arson and murder on the streets, and the stockpiling of weapons in preparation for ‘race war’.”
