President Trump is preparing to accept hundreds of refugees from Iran and other terrorist-connected countries, taking them from camps being maintained by Australia under a deal his predecessor struck, without putting them through the long vetting that usually takes place, according to a report being released Monday.
Some of the refugees have tried to cleanse their social media presence to try to delete red flags that could cost them their chance to come to the U.S., the Center for Immigration Studies report concludes.
A staggering 88 percent of the refugees have some level of mental illness or disorder, according to a U.N. health inspection last year. And the center’s report documents incidents of rape and sexual assault perpetrated by the refugees on locals.
Australia has been looking for a landing place for the refugees for years, and President Obama agreed to take them. Mr. Trump criticized the “dumb” deal in February, and shared a testy phone call with Australia’s prime minister, but has since relented and is moving quickly to welcome the refugees.

And to rub in his rolling of President Trump, Turnbull has allowed to be released a video of him insulting Trump at an event that is usually off the record.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull isn't known for being a comedian but he tried some daring Donald Trump material on a room full of journalists in Canberra last night.
He gave a tongue-in-cheek speech, which Nine's Political Editor Laurie Oakes has decided to reveal, at Parliament House's annual Mid Winter Ball.
Usually the prime minister's address is off the record, but Oakes - who did not attend the dinner and does not believe reporting should be banned at events hosted by journalists - is making it public.
In leaked audio, Mr Turnbull is heard making fun of his meeting with the president in New York last month.

President Trump should take this opportunity to withdraw all State Department and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services personnel in Australia and Nauru and Manus Island who are processing these fraudulent refugees, fraudulent because Australia says they are fraudulent. President Trump can be diplomatic and just not address the issue as when the bureaucrats are withdrawn, there is nothing more needed to be done or said. But the message to the buffoon Turnbull will be clear, if you are so concerned about these Muslim terrorists, then let them in your country.
