“Leprosy is caused by a bacteria and is completely treatable.”
But many other less treatable diseases which were once under control in the USA are resurfacing, and the vector is the same.
There was a GOOD reason for requiring immigrants to go through a health screen before they were allowed into the country.
By the way, have you ever tried to bring a plant or an animal into this country? It’s a BIG deal.
Many times the animal will be quarantined, and the plants carefully inspected for disease.
I guess plant and animal health is more important than our health, and they are not as easily offended.
Its obviously an issue but leprosy is not ebola. Illegals should be run out of this country and force to enter legally and work legally.
Health screenings are vitally important and those entering from Mexico are the only ones given a free pass.
