A prominent medical attorney who has studied illegal immigration concludes the porous border with Mexico poses a major public health threat to the U.S.
Madeleine Pelner Cosman, author of a report in the spring issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, is particularly concerned with increases in multiple drug-resistant tuberculosis, chagas disease, dengue fever, polio, hepatitis A, B, and C, she told Lou Dobbs on CNN last night.
"Certain diseases that we thought we had vanquished years ago are coming back, and other diseases that we've never seen or rarely seen in America, because they've always been the diseases of poverty and the third world, are coming in now," she said.
As WorldNetDaily reported last month, even leprosy is suddenly on the radar of health officials.
Cosman recommends closing the border to all illegal traffic, rescinding the citizenship of "anchor babies," those born in the U.S. to parents of illegals, and making the aiding and abetting of illegals a crime and an end to all future amnesty programs.
"We have a terrible, absolutely vicious, law called EMTALA: the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, which is really the culprit that requires every emergency room, and every physician of an emergency room, to treat illegal aliens for free," she said.
Cosman said 84 hospitals in California have been forced to close because of the high cost of treating illegal aliens with only 50 percent of all treatments reimbursed by government.
"Even physicians in those emergency rooms, don't fully get the point that by being compassionate, and generous, and gracious, they are, in essence, destroying their own livelihoods as well as their own hospitals," she said.

Why do not the career political whores in America see this? Do they just not care?
There's a political whirlwind coming. The Republicans are going to have to find another job, cause they've screwed their own party, their own career, and their own future.
I hope they choke on it.
WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! TILL YOU RUN OUT OF INK IN YOUR PEN!
Bombard the Democrats as well, especially the ones that ran on an anti illegal immigration plank and the ones in marginal districts who could be vulnerable. keep pounding on them. This is a bipartisan issue not a Conservative or Liberal issue BUT AN AMERICAN issue.
The Mexican invasion of America involves numbers never before seen in warfare since the Mongol invasion of China. The best estimates of the number of illegal aliens now in the U. S. is around 34 to 38 million. (do the math).
This invading army is unarmed but otherwise its goals are the same as that of an armed invasion: to occupy territory, seize resources, and alter the customs laws, and language to fit the invaded country.
The government in Washington seems unaware of the invasion.
