Same has happened here in Ireland today OrphanCrow having followed this Icelandic initiative.
Many like ourselves have pledged a room in a our house, provided in my case that our landlord doesn't object (he's pretty cool so I'd suspect he'd offer one of his own rooms too).
Problem is our government to date insists on all asylum seekers going into centres that are cramped and horrible where they will wait for 6/7/8 years to get processed, in the meantime unable to legally work. I'm hoping one of the things this crisis will do is quicken the asylum seeking process. Though we are talking about Irish governments. *sigh*
