Something needs to be done about these foreign trespassers.(thanks washtimes)
Foreign trespassers is dead on.
If they are bringing in bio-agents, I say they are WMDs, and need to be dealt with appropriately.
We used to reject immigrants with dangerous diseases. Liberalism is dangerous to your life as well as your liberty.
Interesting how the MSM is suddenly so interested in this issue--last night Alan Colmes wanted to wax sorrowful over an alien that murdered somebody. I think the left smells a wedge issue--they know that Bush loves Vicente like Lindsey Graham loves McCain.
Do we really need any MORE reasons to halt illegal immigration NOW?????
Ironically, this is one reason why many state governments are reluctant to keep illegal aliens from receiving "free" medical care, and from attending public schools. Having the state maintain some level of official contact with them enables government agencies to inoculate them under the force of law.
This risk/problem was obvious to all but the very young or very stupid...
Give them something worth fighting for..
The quality of Homeland Security would go up 1000% and for 1/10th the cost in tax dollars
It is getting BEYOND ridiculous that we are LETTING this happen.
The Minutemen proved that we CAN stop the majority of illegal immigration.
It's become beyond insane and I apologize to every freeper who was concerned about this issue years ago and I brushed them off.
I want some liberal to explain to me how it is OK to let disease ridden terrorists wander across our border at will.
Savage was all over this last week. His very first demo talk radio tape years ago covered this topic.
They are undocumented workers. Hardchargers who are just here to do for $5/hour the jobs Americans won't do for $15/hr. Unofficial dual-citizens. Mexican colonists. Unrecognised immigrants. Desert nomads. Wandering minstrels. Affordable Human Resources. Subsidized Healthcare Consumers. Oh, I could go on and on.
"Foreign trespassers" is so terribly unsensitive.
And to suggest that they might be carrying diseases long ago defeated in industrialised nations. Why that's just silly. What about all the experimental medical treatment available only in Mexico?
First, I couldn't believe I read the title correctly, especially in this PC age. Second, I couldn't believe who reported it. Third, this seems to be reason #3,498 as to why the border should be guarded and all illegal deported. I wonder how many more reasons we need before Bush gets it.
"Americans should be told that diseases long eradicated in this country -- tuberculosis, leprosy, polio, for example -- and other extremely contagious diseases have been linked directly to illegals," said Scottsdale Congressman J.D. Hayworth.
"This is one of the cheap thrills of cheap labor," said Childress. "As you may have noticed, many immigrants, legal or otherwise, are employed -- if they are at all -- as cooks, dishwashers, waiters and food handlers. And it's a fact that Hepatitis A, B, and C show up in fast food environments."
You should see the crew of Ecuadorians waiting downstairs at my building. Today there are so many the little deli/cafeteria downstairs is serving as in impromtu waitiing room. (Good luck to anyone who wants to sit down and eat. I don't think the Japanese owners are going to put up with that very long.) I'm sorry to say this, but they are a sorry looking bunch of sad sacks. I really don't understand this, but my office building should not be looking like a welfare office every day.
It is not only the illegals, but legal immigrants are not health screened sufficiently either, not to mention all the jet airplanes of visitors from countries that have no vaccinations. We need to close our borders, and if anyone comes into our country who has been in a place where foreign diseases are present, to not let them in unless they can prove they were vaccinated. Easy to do at customs. If you are a foreigner who was in Africa last year, you wont get past customs unless you brought copies of all your past vaccinations.
