SNIP But the unsuitable conditions of the Border Patrol processing facilities and detention centers where thousands of immigrants are being held, and the lack of sufficient medical screenings mean we could be on the verge of a health crisis, America.
Modern public health policies clearly describe conditions which could lead to mass outbreaks of diseases, and whats going on now is the perfect storm. State health officials touring one of the detention centers in Texas recently reported several issues including a lack of medicine for children, and insufficient medical screenings and testing for vaccinations or tuberculosis. They also noted that the children in the facility ate, slept and used the bathroom in the same crowded areas with no running water or soap for proper hygiene to prevent the spread of disease.
These conditions are very concerning, because we could very easily see major outbreaks in these centers and border towns of diseases like measles, influenza and tuberculosis (TB). Health care policy of immigration in this country properly describes that there are many communicable diseases that must be tackled head on before anyone makes it onto U.S. soil. This includes conditions like TB, leprosy, syphilis and gonorrhea just to name a few. That policy also includes the documented administration of certain childhood vaccinations like polio, hepatitis and measles, mumps, rubella (MMR).
Whats going on right now is that there is no good accountability that any of these screenings are being done in a proper manner, or the few that have been done dont make up for those thousands of immigrants falling through the cracks. If the border health officials are telling the federal government that a health crisis is looming, why is the federal government not listening?

Yeah well good luck with that good idea...
You're talking about illegal aliens here, not immigrants...
“According to many reports I have read, the medical screenings that are going on rely heavily on verbal and visual examinations. Clearly, a Q&A session on whether someone trying to enter the country illegally has all the proper health criteria for doing so is not the most efficient way of doing things especially when you have crowding and communal living where disease outbreaks are common.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) must supply the federal government with the resources to conduct proper screenings or the federal government has to reimburse the state and local governments giving them the ability get the help they need in tackling this health looming crisis head-on. I think that America knows very well what potential outbreaks of influenza or any atypical virus could create in our country. We monitor illness throughout the world, but in many cases, we keep paying the price because foreign health officials fail to properly disclose or monitor major viral outbreaks among their own communities.
This problem is not just a problem among border towns. As thousands of immigrants are released from detention centers to await their day in court, reports have surfaced that they are boarding busses for destinations as far as New York.”
Nice eh ???
Try Middle of.
What a country our grandchildren have ahead of them.
Awful-——and mainly because of one evil man.
That would be a win-win as far as Ayatollah Hussein is concerned.
I assume you're talking about that d@mn Texan Lyndon Baines Johnson?
One evil man? No. There are plenty of people to blame. And that includes Republicans.
Don’t forget Teddy (SPIT) Kennedy.
” and mainly because of one evil man.

On edit: Mainly because of two evil men.
Add in millions of foreign criminal invaders caving in the health care system
Let me guess, dispersing tens of thousands of unscreened illegals to centers all over the country probably is NOT the best containment policy?
The ONLY reason that “one evil man” has succeeded in his destruction is because a hundred OTHER evil men and women (with “R” after their names) have aided and abetted him! We must NEVER EVER forget that. There’s been enough treason to go around twice!

Because the FedGov needs a serious health crisis to demonstrate how well nobamacare works.
Plus, they don't care.
Unfortunately, this invasion will bring about for Americans what all invasions have historically brought about—a calamity.
Murrieta City Councilman Gene Wunderlich said When they turned the buses around to take them back to San Diego [on Tuesday], one of the buses had to make a stop at a hospital because three young children were so sick they had to be cared for immediately.
Not mainly one evil man. Many evil people from every corner of society. Bush did his dirty part also. McCain is a huge part of the problem.
Dr. Manny VanWinkle, apparently.
Thanks for the link. “God bless the little children.”
Neighboring Indio, Kalifornia (90 percent hispanic demographic)had to test - twice this past skool year - every student at the high school for tuberculosis...
