In reality it sounds like this deal is still being negotiated and there's been zero indication from any source that I can find that the refugees wouldn't go through the typical screening process or that this will increase the target number of refugees that the administration has said they would be taking in this year. Also Congress is scheduled to be briefed in a few days.

It also sounds like we'll be sending refugees to Australia in return.
The story is also covered by the AP. Try "Australia refugees coming to US" on Google. Several articles there.

An excerpt:

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The United States has agreed to resettle an unspecified number of refugees languishing in Pacific island camps in a deal that is expected to inspire more asylum seekers to attempt to reach Australia by boat, officials said on Sunday.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull would not say whether he had discussed the deal with President-elect Donald Trump during their telephone conversation on Thursday. The Obama administration had agreed to resettle refugees among almost 1,300 asylum seekers held at Australia's expense on the island nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea. Another 370 who came to Australia for medical treatment then refused to return to the islands would also be eligible.

Article further says Australia is refusing to resettle boat people.

The USA version, copyrighted by the AP:

U.S. to resettle Australia's refugees languishing on islands

That wasn't so tough.

Are you talking about Jimmy Carter deporting Iranians? Or Australia not letting in the Syrians. How many of these folks are going to Saudi Arabia, and other M.E. countries? It seems like they all want to go to European countries and the US. Are any going to South America? Africa? Greenland etc? I know it is hard for them to go to a lot of M.E. countries since it seems that wars are going on in most of those countries in the last few years.
