Posted on 05/17/2016 8:51:07 AM PDT by Rusty0604
One of every five refugees resettled in Minnesota by the federal government tested positive for latent tuberculosis in 2014, ...
More than 70,000 refugees have been resettled in the United States annually for the past three decades by the federal government. Its not just tuberculosis being brought in by these resettled refugees. Measles, whooping cough, diptheria, and other diseases that were on their way to eradication are also coming in across the borders of the United States.
A recent outbreak of measles in Memphis, Tennessee, a center for refugee resettlement, began at a local mosque, ...
The alarming public health report from Minnesota comes on the heels of news from the Centers for Disease Control that in 2015, the incidence of tuberculosis in the United States increased.
The CDC is still trying to determine the reason for the uptick.
Tuberculosis (TB) has surpassed HIV as the leading cause of death from infectious disease worldwide, the Minnesota Department of Health reports.
Treatment for tuberculosis is long and expensive.
Care also involves communication and cultural challenges.
The cost of treating an active TB case that is susceptible or responsive to drugs averages $17,000, according to the CDC. Care of patients with drug-resistant TB, which can result from taking antibiotics prescribed before TB was properly diagnosed, costs many times more: $134,000 for a multidrug-resistant patient and $430,000 for an extensively drug-resistant one
An alternative public health policyone that the United States used for decades in the latter part of the nineteenth century and early twentieth centuryis to test immigrants and refugees for infectious disease before they are allowed into the country.
In that earlier era, those who tested positive were sent home. Today, however, many are welcomed in and pose a risk of infecting the rest of the American population.

Oh for the days that this garbage never made it into the country. But they are “vetted”. Evidently that doesn’t include health checks.
Add to that super lice, scabies, etc.
The central socialist government is killing us.
Stop ALL immigration for an indefinite period of time until we can clean out the illegal and Muslim population.
Then clean out the District of Corruption!
Go Donald! It is within your power to become America’s greatest president by fumigating government.
We have a highly activist government that can print all the money, and issue all the debt it needs.
Any political, social-engineering scheme, no matter how stupid or dangerous, can be paid for.
It would only be fair for 22% of the “US” Congress
that allowed the Quartering of these incurable
diseases in the first place
... to infect themselves.
They are EXEMPT and above all who serve them.
Above all Laws. Above all acountability,
as is the unvetted First Moslem terroristophile.
The demand the American public submissively accept
tuberculosis as the new Vitamin C.
So far, the submission continues.
This could be tough. Better hire Sherlock Holmes to figure this one out.
And we STILL don't know what motivated them to go on their killing rampage. < / sarcasm >
That means we are paying for 15,000 foreign TB cases, plus all the Americans who are being infected by them. Obama promised a “fundamental transformation”, and he kept his word. Obama promised CHANGE, and I’d call the explosion of TB cases a big change. As for HOPE, every enemy of America now has more hope than ever before in history.
Who says Obama never keeps his word?
And that’s just 22% of the ones that they have actually tested. Imagine the true % of all illegals.
Look at how much money they are spending to treat these people.
send them to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington DC. It’s a big, big house, plenty of room!
Yes, I thought that was amusing.
Isn’t this just SPECIAL!!! This BASTARD WILL do ANYTHING to destroy this nation!!! Someone NEEDS to get this to the Trump campaign ASAP!!! He NEEDS to tweet this from the highest mountain!!! OFTEN!!!!
How about informing them that JOOOS developed the vaccine/cure for tuberculosis and without Jews there would be no cure for it and they therefore need to make a declaration that they will renounce any anti-Jewish activity if they are to remain in this country. Otherwise they will be returned to their native country.
I wish that was strong enough. It isn’t.
Your government is trying to replace you & your family, as fast as they can....and if some of us get a deadly disease in the process, then that’s the price THEY are willing to pay to negate your vote in your nation. It’s the massive LEGAL third world immigration that’s killing us people !
and sure to follow; ‘Disease Ridden’ will be next protected class...
I heard some moron DJ today discussing that TB was making a comeback after almost disappearing, but he “didn’t know why”. Duh, its the illegal aliens these hordes coming in that are not properly screened.
He changed to allow HIM positive in so we can pay for their care. Meanwhile taxpayers are struggling to pay for rising insurance costs.
More than 70,000 refugees have been resettled in the United States annually for the past three decades by the federal government.
One in five has tested poaitive for TB.
Let’s do the math.
70,000 times 30 years = 2,100,000 people
and 420,000 of them tested positive...
I feel better already.
