NEW YORK CITY, New York — Middle Eastern refugees who will need major mental health treatment are being resettled across five states in the United States, under an Obama-era immigration deal that President Trump has failed to shutter.
Former President Barack Obama signed the Australian-U.S. refugee deal during his last months in office — promising to take 1,250 Middle Eastern refugees off Australia’s hands.
Under current federal law, states do not have to be notified before the federal government resettles foreign refugees in the region.
In January, a refugee from Sri Lanka living in the detention centers raped an 18-year-old high school student multiple times after taking her to a nearby hotel, according to Loop.
Meanwhile, the foreign refugees will also need serious mental health treatment when they arrive in the U.S. in the various five states, as Breitbart News reported.
