The perfect storm for a humanitarian and public health disaster is brewing in the U.S. and the mainstream media is largely ignoring it. Its the politically incorrect elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about.
With the influx of well over one million new persons each year not born in the U.S, diseases that rarely occurred or were eliminated have begun to re-emerge, putting all Americans at risk.
Breitbart reports, Until recently, most Americans believed these diseases were gone from our shores for good. But a politicized public health system and a rise in the subsidized migration into the United States, however, have combined to reverse a century of progress.
Below is a list of six diseases now making a comeback:
1.Tuberculosis: Of the entire U.S. population, only 4 percent test positive for latent tuberculosis while 33 percent of the world population tests positive. However, of the refugees resettled in Minnesota alone, 22 percent tested positive, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. A 2013 study from UC San Diego, in agreement with numerous other studies, concluded that high rates of latent TB among resettled refugees presents a public health risk. Minnesotas Star Tribune writes, Today four states California, New York, Texas and Florida have more than half the nations active TB cases, though they have only a third of the countrys population. These four states have the highest numbers of foreign-born residents.
Treating TB patients is labor intensive. Patients must complete a course of drugs that lasts six months or longer. Treatment programs require a health care worker - not a family member to administer the medication.
2. Measles: The elimination of measles was documented in the U.S. in 2000. But in 2014, we experienced a record number of measles cases...

When Hillary throws the borders wide open, making no pretense, every one of these diseases will be right next door.
The biggest reason for the resurgence of these diseases is the unwashed masses pouring across the border, but the left is busy blaming parents who don’t want their children injected with vaccines of questionable safety manufactured from cells of aborted fetuses. But the truth just doesn’t fit the narrative
Of course .. because people are coming here WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN VACINATED FROM THESE DISEASES.
So, the most important thing we can do to any “migrants” who come here .. vaccinate ALL ADULTS and their children.
And .. probably a lot of them will already been exposed to these diseases, or alrady infected, and don’t even know it.
That’s what happens when you allow :
1. Hordes of unscreened immigrants from third- and fourth-world nations.
2. Unrestricted and unmonitored movement of people who are confirmed infected with a transmissible & incurable disease.
3. People who have a grudge against a doctor/hospital/etc., are mentally ill and/or have no/totally incorrect knowledge of medicine allowed to spread rumors of life-threatening ‘risks’ for vaccinations that are confirmed to prevent serious illnesses.
Some of these bastards know they are sick and come here to make us sick.
According to someone in social services/public health the illegals do vaccinate. What they don’t do is practice good hygiene. Indicates that the anitivaccination crowd may be correct when stating that indoor plumbing and the cleanliness it brought had as much to do with ending polio as did the vaccine. Polio is spread through fecal matter. I assume many other diseases are as well.
Toilets, toilet paper and hand washing are not important parts of third world countries-they can baffle the newly arrived.
The anti vax crowd claims they are innocent here. Maybe they can explain why the diseases were wiped out here, and still running rampant in the countries that didn’t vaccinate.
“...when stating that indoor plumbing and the cleanliness it brought had as much to do with ending polio as did the vaccine.”
Utterly idiotic. You cannot back that up with the stats. The vaccine was licensed in 1955. The annual number of polio cases fell from 35,000 in 1953 to 5,600 by 1957. By 1961 only 161 cases were recorded in the United States.
Tell us about the explosion of cleanliness from 1955 to 1961.
This is simply ignorant moms needing a cause. Like Alar in the apples.
Thanks to our mussie overlords.
All because of the POS infestation at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue...
Or inside your house.
And what about the hordes of these illegals admitted to our schools, sitting next to YOUR kid, who have not been vaccinated and whose teachers have not been notified until well into the school term, AFTER ample time to be exposed to TB and other horrible diseases has passed?
Can anyone site a positive benefit from the Somalis settle in Minnistan? And cleaning airports doesn’t count.
