Border Agent Contracts Scabies After Handling Undocumented Immigrants (CA)

A border patrol agent was diagnosed with scabies after processing undocumented immigrants in Otay Mesa, California, the agent's union representative said. Ronald Zermeno, health and safety director for the National Border Control Council union, said the agent told him that he observed several people with open sores while screening them in preparation to be released to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Scabies is caused by a mite that burrows into skin and lays eggs, causing an intense itching and rash, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

I was glad at first to see NBC News covering this, but then they closed with an emphasis on the “two sides” and the “division.” Always with the wrong message.

Shades of Gail Collins today explaining Obama’s poor approval numbers by saying he’s in his sixth year of his presidency, what do you expect. Everyone’s getting tired of him.

They will say anything, just anything, to cover up the truth.

Those illegals are coming from the RIo Grande Valley, where BP staff have been steam cleaning cells multiple times per shift.

Scabies! He was lucky. Coming soon to your neighborhood: leprosy, tuberculosis, measles, mumps, and that is just the start. Too difficult to name the rest.

Time to break out the Kwell..aka, lindane, aka, sheep dip.

During the very first African bush medical clinic I ever helped with, I was handed a tin can, paint brush and a gallon jug of benzyl benzoate and told:

Nurse: "This woman has scabies. Pour some of the benzyl benzoate into the can and paint her."

Me: "Paint her?"

Nurse: "Paint her!"

Me: "Where?"

Nurse: "All over."

Me: (totally flummoxed) "All over?"

Nurse: "All Over, except the eyes, nostrils & mouth... & 'privates'! Paint her baby, too."

Well, both the patient and the "medical tech" (me) survived the procedure. The patient was far less traumatized that was I.

Two decades ago a friend came back from a visit to Russia and gave us all a welcome back hug. Then we all developed scabies. Seems they washed sheets in hotels with cold water. My husband and I got rid of them quickly with hot laundry and skin medicine, but the kids kept finding shirts and jackets dropped behind furniture and reinfecting themselves. Took over 6 months to get rid of our infestation. “From Russia with love.”

Hot laundry. Place all bedding in garbage bags in the sun for several days. Bathe in Permethrin. Pray they don’t find your b*lls. — My experience with scabies.

Scabies is caused by a mite that burrows into skin and lays eggs, causing an intense itching and rash, according to the .

Looks like the CDC is not CDC-ing, because if it were CDC-ing, they would recommend not importing millions of disease-ridden illegals into the U.S.

I wonder who the Regime will blame when there is a smallpox outbreak due to the import of illegals? My bet is the MSM will
A. not cover the story
B. blame it on Global Warming
C. blame Republicans for blocking Obama’s amnesty program
