The resettlement of Muslim migrants has been accompanied by sexual assaults from country to country. There's no reason why the United States should be immune to that. And it wasn't.
After initial reports that Syrian refugees had raped a 5-year-old girl in Idaho, the media and the local authorities came out to declare the story absolutely false.

Okay, well that's good. So what did happen. Iraqi and Sudanese refugees raped the 5-year-old girl.
Well that's completely different. The media insists that their Muslim status is "unconfirmed", but a photo of the family of one of the rapists appears to show head coverings.
The strangest thing is the media's end zone dance. The media is acting as if a story claimed that a murder had occurred on Broadway when in fact there was no murder at all. But the actual correction is the difference between a murder taking place on Fifth Avenue being reported as having taken place on Broadway.
And the efforts by the authorities to play games about what happened.
“There were no Syrians involved, there was no knife involved, there was no gang-rape,” Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs said Monday morning.
The Syrians were Iraqis and Sudanese. The rape was a sexual assault of some unclear kind. And yes, no knife was used to sexually assault a 5-year-old girl. Clearly we need more Muslim refugees.
