Twin Falls, Idaho is a hot spot for refugees, and the College of Southern Idaho (CSI) is the only refugee resettlement agency bringing them to the Magic Valley Region. Approximately 300 refugees were placed in fiscal year 2015, and more recent arrivals have included large numbers of individuals from Iraq, Congo, Burma, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and Somalia. Since 1984, 5,000 refugees from Iraq and Iran have been settled there.
On 2 June, 2016 a five year old girl with special needs was playing outside her home at the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, Idaho when she was taken by knifepoint to the shared laundry facilities on the premises by three boys from two refugee families, ages 13, 9, and 8 years old. The boy sexually assaulted the girl, and urinated on her as well.
Earlier in the week, the eight year old terrorists reportedly cut another young child’s arm with his knife at school. .
As for the 5 year old victim, according to her mother, a neighbor discovered her daughter with the three boys. Her clothes had been stripped off by the boys who were also naked and the 13 year old had a phone which he use to record the incident.
After being alerted to what was happening, the mother and father of the victim promptly arrived on the scene.
The video on the phone displayed the sexual assault of the 5 year old girl and according to the victims father, reportedly shows the older boy coaching the younger ones during the assault and attempted rape of the little girl, along with urinating in her mouth and over her body as they pinned her against a wall.
The mother took the victim home immediately, stating she was going to call the police. Shortly after arriving home the mother of one of the attackers showed up at the victim’s home demanding in broken English, “No police, everything ok.”
The police were called and arrived on the scene two and a half hours later, at which point the cell phone was given to the local authorities. The mother of the victim has also reported receiving threats by two young men of Middle Eastern descent, who told her they will come after her if she pursues the police with this matter.
The Twin Falls Police Department finally made arrests of the two older boys on June 18, 2016. They released them to their families shortly thereafter. Though a request was made for a restraining order by the victim’s family, the authorities have issued such an order of protection. Instead the perpetrators remain in the comfort of their own home and have been spotted running around the complex grounds.
Due to finances, the victim’s family remains in the same apartment complex as all three of her attackers.
The police department and county Prosecutor, Grant Loebs, have not acted in a timely fashion to protect the victim and her family from the attack by the Muslim refugees or from intimidation and harassment received from the refugee community in the aftermath.
According to Julie Ruf, a local leader and concerned citizen, there have been up to 200 local residents who have voiced concerns over the Refugee Resettlement program for over a year to their City Council, police department, and the CSI trustee board. They have received scorn instead of answers to their numerous questions and concerns regarding things like the welfare costs involved, the increased tax burden on local residents, healthcare, educational, and last but not least issues of national security and public safety concerns related to these individuals being settled in their city.
The local internet news source, Magic Valley, has published names of concerned citizens who dared question the program and tried to belittle them. If the MagicValley.com news site would print the facts of the Refugee Resettlement Program instead, they may have additional citizens concerned about the settling of Muslim refugees who adhere to Sharia Law within their communities. Incidentally, the mother of the boys involved in the assault wears a full burka in a display of adherence to the Sharia.
According to a Magicvalley.com article,
“CSI’s president. Jeff Fox, stated the following last June about the program when opinions from legislators were sent to him out of concerns they were hearing from their constituents.
“There is nothing to hide or fear about the Refugee Center’s operations. There is a long and successful track record.”
There may have been a glowing track record before the Federal refugee program started admitting Sunni Muslim refugees into America from warring Islamic countries, but now there plenty of stories where they don’t assimilate into western culture.
Take into account the skyrocketing sexual assaults happening all over Europe where ever Muslim majority immigrants/refugees have settled. Sweden, for example, is now the rape capital of the West trailing only North Africa. They have a 2% Muslim male population with 77% Muslims perpetrating the reported rapes. It is doubtful Magic Valley news or the CSI pays any attention to those details.
