Posted on 07/04/2014 8:19:04 AM PDT by KeyLargo
WESLACO - The spread of scabies, chicken pox and other diseases within Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol facilities may be getting out of control, a leader with the agents' union said.
National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 Vice President Christopher Cabrera said the federal government is not serious about solving the problem.
Cabrera said agents have to deal with health issues affecting the immigrants. He said agents are encountering many sick immigrants, including women and children.
Cabrera said the agents are beginning to contract some of those diseases.
"I see it as a big mess. Unless we get serious about fixing this ... we're spinning our wheels," Cabrera said.
The union representative said numbers recently reported in Hidalgo County included only five cases of chicken pox within the immigrant population. He's convinced there are more than the report shows.
"I know a couple of stations ... have gotten three or four or five cases alone," he said.
"You have the stations downriver ... the Cameron County area. Not everybody is going to come forward with the symptoms, but there are quite of few cases of the chicken pox," Cabrera said.
He said scabies also poses a threat. Cabrera said the skin disease appears to be getting out of control. He said about 10 to 15 percent of the immigrant population held in Valley detention centers is being treated for scabies.y About Contagious Diseases

He never said "fundamental change" was going to be a good thing.
Thanks for posting. Latest update at source
Obama Ayatollah Hussein using children.
If carbrerra has any bullets in his gun he needs to just shoot himself in the foot and finish the job.
Picture 3? Is a child? I’m going to have to call BS on that one.
I have no mercy left in me.
They are busing those diseases all over the United States, and in particular to Conservative neighborhoods like Murietta.
Then all border patrol agents should stand together and do something about it.....protest, quit, go on all news outlets and tell the truth about what is going on, become a whistleblower, stop these charades so you can get back to your real job to keep terrorists from coming here to blow us up.
I am physically repulsed. Its an army of diseased invaders. This is BIOLOGICAL WARFARE, as deadly as any chemical bomb. This will collapse or medical system.
Obama the CryptoMoslem Tyrant from Indonesia
is shipping these DH”S”=escorted diseases
to every state, every conservative community.
Did he take ten for HIS home?
I think not.
Every US Congressman and their Staff,
every Czar and his Staff,
should be forced by Law to take one dozen
of these “children” in their homes.
Illegal alien children, doing work Americans won't do, like bringing lice and typhus to your local preschool and grade school.
Not all of the illegals are little babies.
“Our nation has an immigration problem and a national security crisis, but I don’t believe the answer is for our military facilities to be transformed into a center that houses, feeds, and cares for illegal immigrants.”
“This only encourages parents to send their children unaccompanied over the border and, with the average-aged child being between 13 and 17, it exposes our military facilities to unknown security concerns.”
Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) represents the congressional district where Fort Sill is located. He also commented about the feds plan to use the Army base as a housing facility for illegal kids, saying:
Known gang members among thousands of illegal immigrant children storming the U.S. border and officials are now trying to silence officers from talking to the media
Look at all those “little children.”
Some appear to be around 240 months old!

Family members, beware.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For other uses, see Nitpicking (disambiguation). Question book-new.svg
Photograph by Giorgio Sommer (18341914); Famille napolitaine a Neapolitan mother searching for lice in her son's hair.
Nitpicking is the act of removing nits (the eggs of lice, generally head lice) from the host's hair. As the nits are cemented to individual hairs, they cannot be removed with most lice combs and, before modern chemical methods were invented, the only options were to shave all the host's hair or to pick them free one by one.
This is a slow and laborious process, as the root of each individual hair must be examined for infestation. It was largely abandoned as modern chemical methods became available; however, as lice populations can and do develop resistance, manual nitpicking is still often necessary.
As nitpicking inherently requires fastidious, meticulous attention to detail, the term has become appropriated to describe the practice of meticulously searching for minor, even trivial errors in detail (often referred to as "nits" as well), and then criticising them (see hypercriticism).
Illegals bringing drug-resistant TB to U.S.

A member of Congress who for more than 30 years worked as a doctor says the baggage that illegal aliens are bringing into the United States now is killing people.
Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, told WND that its not suitcases, clothes or the like its the highly infectious cases of drug-resistant and lethal tuberculosis that are walking across the Mexican border.
It is something I am aware of and it is definitely a factor to consider in the immigration debate, Burgess said.
Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that generally attacks the lungs, although it can attack any part of the body. The disease is easily spread when an infected individual coughs, sneezes or even talks in the presence of another person. If not properly treated the disease can be fatal.
The disease has been around since ancient times and tuberculosis was once the leading cause of death in America. Among the diseases victims was the legendary Doc Holiday, who died in a tuberculosis ward in Colorado Springs.
While the 20th century development of antibiotics resulted in the disease being virtually eradicated in America by the 1960s, in recent years TB has been making a comeback with new strains that are resistant to most antibiotics.
I posted on another thread this a.m. that a gentleman that was at the Murietta protest was on Fox & Friends this morning. He said his granddaughter was recently diagnosed with Hoof and Mouth disease - said the doctor had seen several recent cases - - 1st in a long time or ever. They’re are expecting another bus today and there will be protestors there again.
There’s also TB and measles. I’ve read reports on FR that the med personnel and others are saying they’re seeing many many case of heads full of lice to the point they’re crawling down the faces, etc. And, I’ve heard on TV and I believe read that there are also cases of leprosy - something not seen, at least in this country, for a very long time.
I feel badly that these kids are suffering with these diseases as well as in other ways. Let’s vaccinate, clean them up, give them a few meals and send them back to their country of origin.
Problem is they’re being shipped all over the country, which a) gives a much better chance of infecting our kids and citizens (wonder if Obummercare is going to pay for all the additional healthcare needs of our kids and citizens), and b) means they will probably be never be found - - as I understand it, they’re not really being tracked - many are being released to foster families or “family members” (read an article on FR that many of the so called family members are bogus). I think the spreading of these illegals around the country is part of BO and ValJar’s plan. What a mess - - just like the rest of Obummer’s _residency.
BTW- the guy in the picture doesn’t look like a little child that Sheila J Lee thinks we should give lollipops to. Though I am sorry he’s got this disease. He needs to be mendicated and go back to his home.
I guess we’ll never see these images on the evening “news.”
Also, the word “immigrant” is used at least four times in the above story. These are NOT immigrants!
DEFUND THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH!
Congress is elected by the people...Hammer their offices until they act to stop this criminal invasion of illegals orchestrated by Barack Obama...a tyrannical president. We ask the congress to show some spine....we must also show them our spine.
The fact is that we do not know the age of most of these illegals. First they lie and next they have forged birth documents. Since we don’t really know their nationalities..we should be returning them to Mexico immediately. If that requires force at the border..so be it.
With the intense overcrowding and pressure on the involved medical personnel it's pretty much a lead pipe cinch that few, if any, of the infested and infected illegal alien children will receive the meticulous treatment necessary to remove and eradicate all the nits and lice with which they are infested. All it takes to spread typhus and all the rest of the diseases spread by infected lice is one bite, meaning all one of those juvenile aliens has to do is rest her head against a head rest on a bus, leaving a few lice to be picked up by an unsuspecting American, for a horrific epidemic to get started.
Now, in addition to all of his other anti-Americanism, the Mahdi is deliberately, knowingly waging lethal biological warfare against the American people, whom he bitterly hates from the bottom of his utterly evil heart, and doing it through infected and infested illegal alien children that he's brought into the country for that very purpose.
He said about 10 to 15 percent of the immigrant population held in Valley detention centers
so since they claim theres 65,000 illegal alien “children” or “minors” at the border right now that’s about 10,000 sick and diseased illegal aliens..
sure sent those Petri dish germ bombs throughout the county, 200 per state plus the rest will be sick also by the time they are flown in a week from now..
Speaking of “minors” and I havbe seen the illegal aliens called that..
a 17 year old is a “minor”
Lets have some accurate ages..
those 17 year olds could really be 18 or 23
Some of those “minors” and “children” are called “mothers”
are they really just 14 or 16 ???
well in this country they can be emancipated teenagers..made adults by the courts..
So any “minors” in the crowd are suspect..
and some of those mere “minors” have a lot of aged and faded tattoos...
become a whistleblower
they and the doctors and nurses at Lackland AFB in San Antonio have been threatened with arrest..
the whistle blowers we do have resigned first from their jobs rather than be fired..
In 1971 BEFORE I immigrated to the US, I had to have a TB tine test ..
Imagine the diseases the 30 MILLION illegal aliens already in the country have brought in ...
Plus this lot who have been stopped at the border and then shipped around the country BEFORE they even had any type of medical screening..
Coming to your child’s school this Fall..
Unlike the American citizens, The illegal alien children and parents don’t have to prove who they are
or that they are healthy and disease free to enter public schools in the US...
These are NOT immigrants!
They are illegal aliens...
If they had applied to immigrate to the US they would have been refused..
You have to be disease free to come here..
I don’t understand the problem, the kids will be vaccinated before they can go to school. The people harvesting, butchering, distributing, preparing your food on the other hand are illegal aliens that have never been tested for communicable diseases or sanitary practices.
A tapeworm was eating her brain, it is difficult to avoid the worm, which usually only infects pigs. Nakaji said Alvarezs hygiene habits were probably not to blame. It was more likely that someone, somewhere, had served her food tainted with the feces of a person infected with the pork tapeworm parasite.
Whats Eating You? 8 Terrible Parasites
Lauren Cox and Dan Childs
ABC News June 11, 2010
2 years after visiting Equatorial Guinea in Central Africa, a Californian had the feeling of something squiggling under the white of his eye.
It was the Loa Loa Worm or Loaiasis. A chrysops fly bites an infected person and transfers it to another. The larvae grow into worms, procreate and lay more larvae that travel in the blood stream.
The larvae will grow for 6 months and then start moving around. They last for from 5 to 10 years.
They have a drug for it.
The population with this is mostly returning Peace Corps volunteers.
There are high rates of parasitic infection in the U.S., especially among African American and Hispanic Americans living in poverty.
Toxocariasis is a parasite that is passed from dog or cat feces that infects 3 million African Americans living in poverty. It is associated with asthma and developmental delays. It is possible to live your entire life with this disease and never have it diagnosed.
Each year more than 700 people infected with Toxocara experience permanent vision loss.
Toxoplasmosis and congenital cytomegalovirus can cause deafness and psychomotor retardation.
A Bot Fly
A woman finds out that she has been infested with a Bot Fly from Belize. These flys bite a person and lay eggs in them. The larvae grow spikes to prevent their host from removing them.
A good Sashimi cook can detect the worms in fish and discard them. If not
This guy in Chicago has a 9 foot tapeworm in his stomach caused by uncooked seafood. The worm can grow up to 25 feet long and sucks up the vitamin B12 in your body leaving you with anemia.
A woman is diagnosed with a brain tumor that causes balance problems, difficulty in swallowing and numbness in her left arm. A surgeon goes in and finds a Tape Worm growing in her brain.
This was a Tape Worm that is common to pigs and if you eat at a restaurant that has a food preparer that doesnt wash his hands after wiping his infected ass, you get it. Over 20 percent of neurology offices in California have seen it.
Cute a person slapping lettuce on your sandwich with a few extra add-ons there.
Lice and Bedbugs
The city of New York is infested with Bed Bugs on their subway trains.
International travel has been attributed to the proliferation of Bed Bugs. The Bed Bugs can carry dozens of infectious diseases from Smallpox to the common flu.
Think about this the next time you lay your head in a movie theater.
This one is cute. A worm infects a human and reproduces in the intestines. The female worms move to the surface of the skin and grow 3 feet in length.
While most of us look at the symbol of medicine as a snake wrapped around the cross. There are others that believe that the Guinea Worm is what formed this depiction of what we think of a snake wrapped around the cross as a depiction of healthcare.
Each year 350 to 500 million people catch this disease. 1 million a year die from it. The disease blocks the blood supply to vital organs.
The kissing bug is attracted to a victims face. When it bites you, you end up rubbing its parasite into your open wound. You feel a fever, fatigue, body aches and headache, the chronic phase of the disease can be deadly. At its worst, the disease can lead to heart failure and sudden death.
8 to 11 million victims live in Mexico and Central America. Up to a million live in the United States.
Salons make business of Head Lice removal
A place in Chicago has opened up shop removing hair lice from people. In their first month, they had over 300 customers. Expect to pay $500 for the treatment.
Heres a cute one, Dengue Fever is back in the U.S. after a 65 year absence. Someone with the disease gets bitten by a mosquito, and that mosquito bites you. You end up with a headache, fever, exhaustion, severe joint and muscle pain, swollen glands and a rash.
There are an estimated 50 million cases of dengue fever with 500,000 cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever requiring hospitalization each year. In Matamoros Mexico, near Brownsville Texas, 78 percent of the people have been exposed to Dengue.
Whooping Cough declared an epidemic in Calif
Children receive immunizations before they can attend school, both legal and illegal, and legal immigrants and visitors must have immunizations before stepping foot in our country. But, the vast majority of people handling our food, people that pick our food, slaughter our meat, prepare it as frozen or canned foods, or people that work in restaurants and markets are illegal aliens and have never had any immunization or tests done on them.
Diphtheria, a respiratory disease caused by bacteria will give you a sore throat and low-grade fever. Complications are: Airway obstruction, coma, and death if not treated. It is spread by coughing and sneezing.
Hib is a severe bacterial infection, occurring primarily in infants and children under 5 years, it symptoms are Meningitis, pneumonia, sepsis, epiglotittis (a severe throat infection), skin infections, and arthritis. Hib meningitis causes death in one out of 20 children and permanent brain damage in 10 to 30 percent of survivors. Transmission is from coughing and sneezing.
Hepatitis A is a disease of the liver noticeable by yellow skin or eyes, tiredness, stomach ache, loss of appetite and nausea. Young children may not have symptoms and because it is spread by fecal-oral route it is a concern for caregivers. It is also spread by food handlers not washing their hands.
Hepatitis B is a liver disease similar to Hepatitis A but the younger the person, the greater the likelihood of staying infected and having life-long liver problems such as scarring of the liver and live cancer. It may be spread through contact with the blood of an infected person or by having sex with an infected person.
Measles is a virus that grows in the cells that line the back of the throat and in the cells that line the lungs. Symptoms are: Rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. Complications are Diarrhea, ear infections, pneumonia, encephalitis, seizures and death.
Measles causes ear infections in nearly one out of every 10 children who get it. As many as one out of 20 will get pneumonia, and one in 1,000 will get encephalitis.
Encephalitis is an inflammation of the brain that can lead to convulsions, hearing loss or mentally retarded. One to two children out of a thousand will die.
Measles can cause miscarriages, premature births and low birth-weight.
In third world countries, Measles have been known to kill 1 out of 4 people. It is the leading cause of blindness among African children. It kills 1 million children a year.
Measles spread so easily through coughing and sneezing, that if you have not been immunized, chances are likely you will get it.
Mumps is an acute viral illness noticeable by fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness and loss of appetite; followed by swelling of salivary glands. The glands near your cheek, jaw bone below your ears are most frequently affected.
Mumps can cause inflammation of the brain and/or tissue covering the brain and spinal cord, inflammation of the testicles, inflammation of the ovaries and/or breasts, spontaneous abortion, deafness (usually permanent).
Mumps are contracted through direct contact with respiratory secretions or saliva or from touching anything recently contaminated.
Pertussis is a respiratory disease caused by bacteria. Its symptoms are: Runny nose, sneezing, low grade fever, cough.
Complications may include Bacterial pneumonia and rib fracture. Infants are at risk of apnea, pneumonia, seizures, encephalopathy and death.
It is spread by coughing and sneezing.
Pneumococcal disease produces high fever, cough and shortness of b
Death from this is one of the most common causes in America from a preventable disease.
It is spread by coughing and sneezing.
Polio is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus that invades the nervous system.
Up to 95 percent of people infected with polio will have no symptoms. Four to eight percent will have minor symptoms such as fever, fatigue, nausea, headache, flu-like symptoms, stiffness in the neck and back, and pain in the limbs. Less than 1 percent will become permanently paralyzed, usually in the legs. 5 to 10 percent die when paralysis strikes the respiratory muscles.
Mexicans shi_tting in fields causes outbreak.
I’m retired but used to work in aerospace, we built parts for the F22 and many other planes. Most of the workers were Hispanic immigrants that couldn’t read in any language. We became aware of it when one of the workers was asked to take a measurement with a digital caliper, he walked away to ask another Hispanic what it said. We offered English and reading classes, but they would not come.
We decided to give tests to see if these people were qualified to do their jobs and found out the women were trading sex for the answers.
The bathrooms were filthy, they would wipe their butts and throw the used toilet paper on the ground because that is what they did back home. They would take their feces and wipe it on the bathroom walls or mirrors. They would take cups of piss and set it on the bathroom stall doors to catch their friends.
It got bad enough that we had to install cameras on the outside of the restrooms and constantly check the restrooms.
The Asians, mostly Vietnamese, stood on the toilet seats and squatted, we were constantly fixing toilet seats.
I have a relative in the trades who tells me stories of Mexican workers daily totally trashing with excrement all over the inside of the provided outdoor toilets where it sometimes would make tradesmen puke.
I do too, they drive to the nearest service station.
“Coming to your childs school this Fall..”
THIS, will assuredly not go without a hitch. They realize not that they’ve awakened the sleeping giant from his slumber.
They this thing will get Americans to want amnesty?
I think they need to reconsider this strategy
