Skip to comments.Immigration Crisis: Tuberculosis Spreading at Camps
Posted on 07/07/2014 9:27:49 AM PDT by kristinn
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seems to think the children coming across the southern border are remarkably healthy. It's a sentiment shared by BCFS -- the Texas-based agency formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services contracted to run camps at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio and Fort Sill in Oklahoma.
More than 7,000 children have been processed through the two camps, according to a BCFS official. They allege that only 119 children have been treated for lice, 22 for scabies, and one for the H1N1 Flu. BCFS says the most common illnesses seen at Lackland are fever, headache, upper respiratory cold and ingrown toenails.
However, at least a half dozen anonymous sources, including nurses and health care providers who worked at Lackland, allege that the government is covering up what they believe to be a very serious health threat.
Several of my sources tell me that tuberculosis has become a dangerous issue at both the border and the camps.
"The amount of tuberculosis is astonishing," one health care provider told me. "The nurses are telling us the kids are really sick. The tuberculosis is definitely there."
Texas Department of State Health Services Commissioner David Lakey, M.D. says state health officials have seen only three cases of tuberculosis, the Associated Press reports. One of my sources with close ties to the Texas HHS tells me all three cases were reported in Austin.
However, nurses at Lackland in San Antonio, said they know of at least four teenagers in their camp who have tuberculosis.
My source said there are children showing classic tuberculosis symptoms -- spitting up blood, a constant cough and chest pain.

I’d be willing to bet that there are more exotic unpublicized diseases present than lice, scabies and drug-resistant tuberculosis. There are some particularly nasty ailments out there. Flesh eating disease comes to mind.
Send em to Murrieta !!!
Spread the “love” around !!!
A few weeks ago the emergency team from CDC got involved so it must be dire...
Gee, who would have thought that Obama’s minions would lie about the public health risk imposed by tens of thousands of illegal aliens who are allowed in.
Bio warfare on the cheap. Target - us citizens.
Streptococcus pyogenes is found in the environment and has nothing to do with immigration or particular countries.
I’ve seen your posts before.
Obama is intent upon blanketing our Nation with all sorts of diseases to celebrate his beloved Obamacare.
This is why Obama doesn’t want to visit the border.
He’s afraid he will get TB.
The Governors should arrest the bus drivers and pilots moving these kids around for human trafficking and endangering the public health.
Soon to be at your local elementary school.
Go take a look at
and then search the page for “extremely contagious through direct contact.”
Well.... did anyone really think that the adults in these South American countries would send their HEALTHY children to be escorted by gang members to the US ?
“The Governors should arrest the bus drivers and pilots moving these kids around for human trafficking and endangering the public health.”
Good idea! Too bad it will never happen.
There are FIVE species of bacteria which release the toxins which attack connective tissue - a condition known as necrotizing fasciitis. ALL five can be spread through contact with infected fecal matter or blood, so they do not just spread from the environment but also due to unsanitary conditions in the home or community.
The disease is rare but not unheard of, especially in some of the countries where these illegals are coming from.
This is intentional to bleed America dry. Which is exactly why the uni-party has done every sneaky trick they can to prevent fortification of the southern border.
oh, THEY are EXEMPT again, and to be protected.
Church Lady: Well, isn't that special?
