Skip to comments.Illegal Alien Minors Spreading TB, Ebola, Dengue, Swine Flu

The hordes of illegal immigrant minors entering the U.S. are bringing serious diseasesincluding swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosisthat present a danger to the American public as well as the Border Patrol agents forced to care for the kids, according to a U.S. Congressman who is also medical doctor.
This has created a severe and dangerous crisis, says the Georgia lawmaker, Phil Gingrey. Most of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) are coming from Central America and theyre importing infectious diseases considered to be largely eradicated in this country. Additionally, many of the migrants lack basic vaccinations such as those to prevent chicken pox or measles, leaving Americas young children and the elderly particularly susceptible, Gingrey reveals.
In a hard-hitting letter to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Congressman Gingrey demands that the agency keep Americans informed about its plan to handle the growing public health crisis posed by the influx of minors. As the unaccompanied children continue to be transported to shelters around the country on commercial airlines and other forms of transportation, I have serious concerns that the diseases carried by these children may begin to spread too rapidly to control, the congressman writes. In fact, as you undoubtedly know, some of these diseases have no known cure.
Gingrey mentions reports of Border Patrol agents contracting diseases through contact with the infected illegal aliens. A few weeks ago Judicial Watch reported that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is forcing Border Patrol agents to serve as babysitters for the UACs. An internal agency document obtained by JW calls for agents with child care or juvenile teaching and/or counseling experience to work at the various shelters housing the migrants. Officers from the front-line agency responsible for preventing terrorists and weapons of mass destruction from entering the U.S. will be responsible for feeding, monitoring, interacting and providing security for the illegal alien minors until they are placed elsewhere.
To handle the escalating health crisis the CDC has activated an Emergency Operations Center (EOC), but Gingrey points out in his letter that Congress and the public are being kept in the dark about what its doing. I firmly believe the public deserves to know the specific actions the EOC and other departments of the CDC are taking to combat and prevent the spread of communicable diseases, the lawmaker writes. He goes on to demand that the CDC take immediate action to assess the public risk posed by the UACs and their subsequent transfer to different parts of the country. I would also like information on what is being done to protect border patrol agents who come in contact with these diseases, what decontamination efforts are taking place, and what is included in medical screenings of the children.
The administration has worked hard to keep that information secret, though some of it is slowly leaking out. One major news station reports that tuberculosis is spreading at the camps housing the illegal immigrant minors while the government downplays the severity of the matter. At least half a dozen anonymous sources, including nurses and healthcare providers, treating UACs at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio say the government is covering up a very serious health threat. Specifically, tuberculosis has become a dangerous issue at both the border and the camps, according to several sources cited in the story. One source confirms that the amount of tuberculosis is astonishing.
This administration is illegitimate and Obama is a #&@ criminal.
Crushing the country’s health care infrastructure is on of imam Obama’s goals.
As I mentioned in a past post. All part of the FEMA plan?
This is indeed one of the reasons that Hussein put a gag order on the border, camps, doctors and nurses. Your worst enemy at work.
When we had a more orderly immigration program, we first had Ellis Island and later medical exams for legal visas.
OMG Ebola too? Isn’t that the one where you can be bleeding from any open orifices?
He’s most certainly a criminal.
He and the administration know all about the disease issue and are trying their best to keep it under wraps.
On top of that he’s lying about deporting them, he’s not doing it.
My grandparents told me they practically had to jump through their own a%$ holes to get into this country.
Med and psych exams and all. They weren’t letting just ANYONE in.
America had to be sure new arrivals COULD work and would not just come here and flop! It made sense THEN... why not NOW?
"Mission accomplished. We win. Waygu, rials, pesos and new voters for us, the EXEMPT.
"Swine fever, dengue, tuberculosis, and forced quartering for stupid America."
Bad time to have some of those disease in the US. The Asian tiger mosquito can spread some of those including denge fever. Those mosquitos are as far north as NJ. You will know that mosquito by its ridiculous size and aggression. Its 4-5 times the size of native species and they are known disease spreaders.
It’s a second Mariel boat lift.
They’ve emptied their hospitals, and probably their prisons too.
I knew a Japanese woman who married a U.S. Marine and came to the U.S. with him. Before she was allowed into the U.S. she had to pay for a HIV test and prove that she did not have aids. Different rules for different ethnic groups.
BTW don't any of the stalwarts in the news media think to investigate exactly why all of these "children" suddenly thought making a thousand mile trek through the desert was such great idea?
Remember the shutdown, Repubs taught Obama they have no principles and will surrender under actions he caused.
I blame Boehner/Mcconell for this. They are finding a way to surrender without it hurting them in upcoming elections. This is why they are silent.
How can Central American children be bringing Ebola from Africa? I am more worried about American visitors returning from Africa or Africans visiting legally and arriving by airplane. A family friend once came back from a visit to Russia. We exchanged glad-to-see-you hugs, and ended up with scabies since the hotel used cold water to wash sheets. Also, I believe dengue is spread by mosquito bites, not person to person, but will check to be sure.
Left out Chagas Disease.
It’s really amazing:
DHS has the same headcount as the USMC and TWICE their budget, yet now they are charged not with repelling invaders but instead IMPORTING them.
And their diseases.
We are PAYING homeland security to make our homeland INSECURE.
In a country whose BATF gets paid to EXPORT MACHINE-GUNS, that makes for a very twisted type of logic, now doesn’t it..?
It makes sense, strictly speaking.
Their cowardice is beyond contemptible.
I said this weeks ago
During this time of air travel and biological warfare being possible. Anything is possible?!?
Also, I believe dengue is spread by mosquito bites, not person to person, but will check to be sure.
Gleeaikin, I too have not research this area but would it be possible to manufacture a synthetic form?
I read on one of the other border crisis threads that one or more of the kids on the bus was sick enough that he/they had to be let off at a hospital.
CDC alerts Emergency Operations Center (EOC); "the public are being kept in the dark"
"Saddam" Hussein Obama Launches WMD Attacks On Citizens!
Biological agents distributed across Nation in public places, transportation, schools
I suppose you could add another conspiracy to this mess. if the American public gets exposed to all these diseases, the pharmaceuticals will have an even bigger pool to sell to.
I read that antibiotic resistant tb is spreading. Shouldn’t that trigger a quarantine?
Yeah, I call BS on the Ebola claims too. No way is Ebola circulating here without word getting around on the Internet. Let’s see some independent verification of this before believing it.
Sadly the traitor 0bama is doing quite the job for his handlers.
I am amazed one of them has not grabbed an ebola victim from africa and shipped them on a plane to mexico for smuggling into the USA
The spread would be enourmous within weeks
The same thing happened with the boat people that came in in the late seventies and early eighties, hepatitis, too.
Total lie on the Ebola and probably the Dengue (contagious, anyway).
No better than Daily KOS.
It rather makes one wonder how much their parents were paid to make biological weapons of their children.
In my view it should for any sane America loving leader which we don't have.
Gives all the countries participating in sending people north the chance to remove their undesirables from their countries and send them here.
>> This administration
facilitated by the GOP establishment
Congress it seems has forgotten this nation from the 1910's through late 1950's suffered several huge epidemics which took lives of many and left others mildly to severely disabled for life. If the Feral Federal government won't do it's duty and get them back home NOW then states need to use their arrest powers against those obstructing that process.
I agree on the ebola but not dengue fever.
“Mexico and Central America harbor TB, malaria, yellow fever, food and waterborne diseases, dengue fever, filariasis, leishmaniasis, onchocerciasis, American trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease), and myasis (various forms of intestinal parasites). Mexicos six border states have over 27 cases of TB per 100,000 people. Legal immigrants have to be evaluated for TB and other diseases before they are allowed into the U.S. Illegal aliens escape such inspection.”
Dengue Fever is not contagious.
obama’s smallpox blankets are doing their job!
See I take the opposite approach as you and others. I laugh every time obambi does unlawful acts. I stopped wasting my anger energy on him. I’m pissed beyond comprehension at the spineless repubricrats occupying Capitol Hill. WHY HAS CONGRESS DONE NOTHING BUT YACK!? They are the ones we should do something about...they are despicable!
Would illegals coming here that already have it require treatment?
If so are you pleased that we’re footing the bill?
My wife, from Thailand, had to have a thorough physical in Thailand and then, the hospital she came to work at, gave here another check. Additionally, her job history and lack of criminal history were checked and verified. She came to the USA for a nursing job and for her desire to be an American citizen eventually. Her English proficiency was checked as well. She became a citizen five years and a few month later.
I wondered about that too, but I put nothing past the WhiteHut occupant.
I hear you but I’m pissed at both, especially the criminal in the WH.
