This story has been circulating on the internet for a few days now. Initially, I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first given the credibility of some of the sites making the claims, but FOX News has verified that something awful took place:
“Despite the hot-button issue of refugee resettlement, the story has gained little traction with the national media, and Internet fact-check site Snopes.com has labeled the information circulating on the web as “mostly false.” According to Loebs, the three assailants, ages 7, 10 and 14, are not Syrian, but may be refugees. The girl was not raped, but is believed to have been sexually assaulted, he said. …
Davis Odell, a community resident who has been in close contact with the victim’s family said the boys dragged the unnamed girl into a utility room in the Fawnbrook Apartments, a low-income, subsidized housing complex in Twin Falls, and assaulted her in an attack that ended when a neighbor happened upon the scene and called police.
“They stripped her naked, and urinated in her mouth,” Odell told FoxNews.com, citing his conversations with the girl’s family. …”
Breitbart has clarified that the refugees, who were adolescent males, were from Sudan and Iraq, not Syria as was the story was originally reported:
“Police Chief Craig Kingsbury of Twin Falls, Idaho, confirmed Monday that three Sudanese and Iraqi boys allegedly sexually assaulted a five-year-old girl, and that two of them have been sent to a detention center after allegedly brutalizing the American child.
The suspects — two of whom are 10 and 14 years old — have been in Twin Falls for less than two years, he said, according to an Idaho TV station, KIVI-TV ABC 6. The news site used the word “rape” while the police chief said “sexual assault.”
The news site also rushed to say no Syrian refugees were involved in the case without explaining why or how Iraqis and Sudanese came to live in the Idaho city, or why it’s in the interests of Americans to invite foreigners’ alien culture into their communities.

“Grandma Jo, Grandma Jo, help me.” It doesn’t matter if they were from Syria or Iraq or Sudan. That’s a minor detail. As Donald Trump has pointed out, they shouldn’t be here in the first place, and if Hillary Clinton is elected president and resettles hundreds of thousands of refugees here this kind of thing – like the recent uptick in jihadist terrorist attacks – is going to become a “feature” in your community.
