STOCKTON, Calif. Prosecutors in Northern California said Thursday that they have obtained an arrest warrant for a tuberculosis patient who has refused treatment and may be contagious, putting those around him at risk.
Eduardo Rosas Cruz, a 25-year-old transient, went to the San Joaquin General Hospitals emergency room in March, complaining of a severe cough. Diagnosed with tuberculosis, medical staff told him to stay in a Stockton motel room, where a health worker would deliver his medication and watch him take it. But officials say he took off.
County health officials asked prosecutors to seek the warrant, in part, because Rosas Cruz comes from a part of Mexico known for its drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis. County health officials are searching for Rosas Cruz, and his name is in a statewide law enforcement system, San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Stephen Taylor said.

“Transient”? You mean illegal Mexican gang cartel thug?
one 9mm shot will cure him
Why was he not quarantined, will that hurt his feelings?
How would you like to be the room maid or next occupier?
Act of Love.
Absolutely nothing wrong with him a half an ounce of lead wouldn’t cure...
He's a far, far greater threat to public safety than someone's lost pet Weimaraner or a CCW holder who might also be a tea party member, so it should be easy.
Tubercuosis Barry.....Obama’s new name for allowing these people in.
I caught that too. You have to give the left credit - they sure know how to sugar coat the truth.
Well isn’t this just ducky !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ahem, or more appropriately, “cough, cough.” Not funny.
So let me guess, the left will spin this “irresponsible male” for the cause of every case of TB that shows up for the next few months. And 1 infected person in Houston or other big southern city will be the only cause of the outbreak of (fill in the blank). Clearly stating the whole time that there was no relation to the border in these matters.
It will be the fault of xenophobic, right wing tea partiers who forced him into the shadows.
Oh leave him alone !!!
Hes only a child !!!
Actually, I bet you're right about that - I can hear it now. "He was afraid he'd be deported so it's the fault of those who'd deport him".
Through the looking glass.
"Americas Impending Tuberculosis Epidemic"
TB? I call it—and every other contagious disease carried by illegal aliens—O’Malley-Gomez disease.
Wait until the leprosy cases hit from the South Americans. American drs do not recognize the disease anymore.
At my husband’s old job in the CYA, they had an elderly Filipino dr. A “ward” was brought in sick, and had already went through various law agencies, including “health” screens, before landing at the facility. The old Dr screamed for the kid to be quarantined immediately. The CDC, DOJ, and many other alphabets showed up within the day. The kid was whisked away, never to be seen, (and probably not deported). If the Dr had not been familiar with the disease... Luckily, it was not at a contagious phase.
No telling what diseases the criminals entering the country have. The American medical peoples are no longer trained to look for what are now obscure diseases for the States.
