Twin Falls, Idaho welcomed nearly 3,000 refugees in ten years

Idaho refugee sexual assault case: boys get probation

And, adding insult to injury, the judge in the case placed an unlawful gag order on everyone in the court room, telling them they could not discuss what happened during the five hours when the boys were portrayed as victims and the little girl was forgotten.  Obviously the judge’s order was ignored, read on…..
