Skip to comments.Hayworth: Americans should know TB, leprosy, polio, have been linked to illegal immigrants
Posted on 07/11/2005 11:40:24 AM PDT by hsmomx3
"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" illegal immigrants, Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) told the Business Journal of Phoenix last month.

Somehow I don't imagine the lame stream media will be reporting this. This would be a good O'Reilly segment though.
Shhhh, it's a secret. Only racists say stuff like that you know. These diseases are only going to kill people that other diseases won't.
I suspect that if governors, senators, and congresscritters (and their families) contract the above mentioned diseases we'd see some action on the border in short order.
It has been reported that there are at least FIFTEEN THOUSAND CASES OF TUBERCULOSIS a year in America and at a cost of between TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND AND ONE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS EACH TO TREAT!
You do the math, but at an average of 850 thousand dollars each, that 12.750 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!(and American taxpayers are paying the tab...ya reeeeely didn't think any of these illegals have Blue Cross or Blue Shield now did ya.)
Thank you GWB for securing the borders and deporting the illegals!
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government,
1. The act of invading; the act of encroaching upon the rights or possessions of another; encroachment; trespass.
I'm all in favor of cracking down on illegal immigrants, but it's important to keep one's facts straight in the process, or risk losing valuable credibility. Leprosy is NOT "highly contagious", and in fact is even difficult to contract when living in the same household as someone who has it. It is also now completely curable. If Hayworth wants to promote public health as a reason for cracking down on illegal immigrants, he'd do well to undertake 5 minutes of Google research before opening his mouth.
Not surprising... Here's a poem which comes pretty close to another truth about illegal immigration.
I cross ocean, poor and broke,
Take bus, see employment folk.
Nice man treat me good in there,
Say I need to see welfare.
Welfare say, "You come no more,
We send cash right to your door."
Welfare checks, they make you wealthy,
Medicaid it keep you healthy!
By and by, I got plenty money,
Thanks to you, American dummy.
Write to friends in motherland,
Tell them 'come fast as you can.'
They come in turbans and Ford trucks,
I buy big house with welfare bucks
They come here, we live together,
More welfare checks, it gets better!
Fourteen families, they moving in,
But neighbor's patience wearing thin.
Finally, white guy moves away,
Now I buy his house, and then I say,
"Find more aliens for house to rent."
And in the yard I put a tent.
Send for family they just trash,
But they, too, draw the welfare cash!
Everything is very good,
And soon we own the neighborhood.
We have hobby it's called breeding,
Welfare pay for baby feeding.
Kids need dentist? Wife need pills?
We get free! We got no bills!
American crazy! He pay all year,
To keep welfare running here.
We think America darn good place!
Too darn good for the white man race.
Maybe I should not mention this here but for the last two months our tap water has been extrememly cloudy. It looks like dirty dish soap or diluted milk.
My neighbor and I have called the city and they say it is just air in the water. This problem still exists and the water smells odd.
When I called the city last week, they more or less told me to ignore it. I then asked the lady if she would be willing to serve this water to a guest in her home.
I will call again today to report this ongoing problem.
True, all we need is to have liberals insist we're discriminating against lepors.
"Shhhh, it's a secret. Only racists say stuff like that you know. These diseases are only going to kill people that other diseases won't."
Not only that... the care for sick illegals and those they infect will be on someone else's tab. Companies using illegals will continue to make lots of cash, so it's all good! Shhhhh.
But.. the labor is sooo cheap.(sarc)
This story only touches the iceberg of what illegal immigrants really costs Americans. Yeah we think the labor is cheap so we can save a few bucks but it is no where near what we really have to pay out as tax payers. It's not only in health care. The greatest rise in Medicaid and other government programs is from foreign born people that are suspected of housing illegal family members.
TB ??? Polio ???
I think many Americans do know and care. The problem is that the President and many members of Congress don't care.
Really? The last I heard is leprosy is "treatable" with Dapsone and the disease will remain in remission as long as the drug is taken every day but the disease is still chronic and incurable.
That nails it !
Sounds like JD is relying on stories already published for his comments.
There have been several article posted on FR in the last three months talking about the 'epidemic' of leprosy in the US in the last 5 years. Of course, the articles fail to mention the points you made.
Protect our borders and coastlines from all foreign invaders!
Be Ever Vigilant!
