Illegal immigrant flood bringing disease outbreaks
American Thinker ^ | 06/07/2014 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 06/08/2014 10:14:05 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

There are serious worries in Texas and beyond over the current flood of illegal immigrants and the diseases they are carrying into the United States. ABC 15 reports from the southern border:

U.S. Border Patrol agents are worried that what's coming over into the U.S. could harm everyone.

This time the focus is not on the women and children that are crossing over in droves.

Agents are worrying about a viral outbreak.

“We are sending people everywhere. The average person doesn't know what's going on down here,” said Border Patrol agent and Rio Grande Valley Union representative Chris Cabrera.

Cabrera says agents are seeing illegal immigrants come over with contagious infections.

Detention centers and holding facilities have quarantined areas for those who come in sick. But Cabrera says the sick and healthy are separated only by caution tape.

“There's been an outbreak of scabies that's been going on for the past month,” Cabrera said.

It’s similar to the bio-warfare used in the old days when the attacking army would throw cattle carcases over the wall and into the castle.

Remember when the Europeans brought diseases to the Native Americans where it was not known to them before?

Well, I hope this doesn’t happen again.

there is no way that children from all these south and latin American countries could all of a sudden to descend upon American borders WITHOUT the intentional action of the OBAMA COALITION putting up public notices for PARENTS to send Kids unattended to the USA...many believe this is just another way OBAMA tries to crush america

Actually the CDC has known this for a while but is mum on it. I’m not sure why.

Keep in mind that those who scream the loudest about the barbaric inhumanity of “ripping families apart” when deporting illegal-immigrant parents, leaving US-born children behind, have no apparent problem with south-of-the-border parents sending their unaccompanied children north.

Greg Abbott and Dan Patrick need to make this a central theme of their campaigns...plus shipping the illegals back to Mexico.

When they win in November, a large majority of the illegals will self deport before Abbott and Patrick get sworn into office in January.

Those on the Left firmly believe that, as in the case of HIV, everyone should be ready to die for their Utopian Socialist delusions.

I am sure they are “mum” about it because if people knew the truth, they could get outraged.

We don't have time to wait. What's going to happen when thousands of unaccompanied teenagers, away from their families, communities and churches are gradually integrated into the US population? They'll not just be invaders, they'll be victims.

Add this to the mix with messed up US teens, many addicted to mind-bending "meds" with no ability to distinguish fantasy from reality. What is it going to be like when they encounter the "anything goes" sexual attitudes of many US teens?

This is a Children's Crusade against the US, which will further erode all of those values and habits our youth are already losing.

My grandfather came to this country through Ellis Island in the early 1900s. I was told that an aunt of his was refused entry because of some eye infection, and she was tearfully forced back onto the ship and had to return to Europe.

But we don't even have a wall. The Chinese figured out how to build the Great Wall more than two thousand years ago, but apparently we lack the technology.

I’m not sure that is the reason. They are not mum on other disease outbreaks, and they are certainly not on problems related to smoking.

I’m thinking the money they receive is from those who are pro-immigration. I’d love to see someone investigate the CDC.

And Arizona. The feds have been dumping illegals in Ariona from Texas as of recent.

It’s called “Hoof and Mouth” disease.

They hoof it over here, we fill their mouths with food.

Unfortunately, I’m not so sure we are doing them good by such action.

When they get here they are skinny lil things.

within just a few short years we’ve turned them into fat slobs, who will fill their grocery carts with all sorts of garbage labled as “Food Stuff”.

Saw this yesterday when I went shopping.

The couple in front of me had nothing but crap in on the counter. All from cans, sausages, Chips, spaghetti-o’s, and asked that 98% of it go on their EBT card.

I have no idea what was excluded.

The people behind me had even more “Food Stuff” and two shopping carts full of it.

Every last bit of what I saw that going down their fat gullets was from cans and bags.

They also asked that, I’m guessing, 98% of what I saw go on their EBT card.

I don’t freaking get it.

None of that stuff tastes any good. I like Top Ramen but, you can bet I don’t eat it very often.

None of that food stuff is well, food. It has little in the way of nutrition and is chock full of simple sugars and copius amounts of salt, which I’m sure isn’t enough for them and they will toss even more salt in their gruel.

All these people were obese, kids included, and had various skin problems.

They will be very sick people soon and never really enjoy good food that is tasty and nutritous.

Really sickening to watch and think what their lives must be like.

Both families had mostly things I would refuse to eat and I’ll eat just about anything.

I never, ever, ever liked raviolis, spaghetti-O’s or canned sauces. Heck, no one in my family does.

My mom tried serving that stuff to us a few times as kids and every bit of was roundly rejected. We just wouldn’t eat it.

Nasty food stuff and recall her laughing and saying something “Well, that experiment failed. Guess my kids only like whole food”.

Now, she was a single Mom doing what she could but, right about that time it became another of our responsibilities to make homemade meals so she could work and put a roof over our heads.

Every last one of us can cook from scratch and do. Except when I just want Top Ramen.

I don’t think any of us use white enriched rice for anything.

I hate the stuff. I like brown or mixed rices that are whole and not enriched.

Pretty sure only one of us eats white bread. The rest of us eat only whole wheat.

Not that stuff that is colored but, the stuff that weighs like a brick would, because it’s actually full of food and water, like food.

I won’t eat those pizzas either. Mostly because I can’t stand crust, unless crisped or burnt and I sure as heck don’t like thick crust.

For the most part, I scrap off the toppings and eat that but, I won’t eat much if it came out of box. Just has some weird taste I don’t care for.

We give these people everything but, don’t bring them forward to modernity, in terms of educating them on what’s actually good for you and what should be considered a convenience for an occasion or a snack.

Don’t get me wrong about Nacho’s either. Love Rotelle Tomatoes and Velvetta but, that is the only way I’m going to eat the stuff and I don’t ....

Well, enough about me...

Those people are going to be sick soon enough and their skin says it all. Horrid and looked this side of leprosy...

This will become more and more common as thousands head for the border bypassing health checks and many work with food which puts us all at risk..

This won’t cause any trouble for B0 DunhamSoetoroSoebarkah. He will just accept another UN Humanitarian award.

The spread of 3rd world diseases will be blamed on global warming by the LSM, and the call will go out for more funding for sanitation and vaccination initiatives.

Of course it is. This is an evil, diabolical plan using the illegal children as pawns.

Hundreds of thousands of illegal minors from Central America just happen to decide now to walk all the way through Mexico and end up at the Rio Grande sector in Texas with no money and no help from anybody?

Not on your life.

This is a cynical plan originating in the White House, probably operated, in part, by the State Dept, using cut out proxies such as la raza and maldef, no doubt being paid for with US taxpayer money.

And the GOPe will do...nothing.

Our chances of surviving climate change are much better than surviving the obama-holocaust.

Climate change to Obama is code for his communist revolution.
