Dallas Morning News ^ | 7/12/14 | SEEMA YASMIN and SHERRY JACOBSON

Despite concerns about the potential public health crisis posed by immigrant children crossing the Texas-Mexico border, medical experts say the likelihood of their spreading disease is low. Still, experts in emergency preparedness are urging health care providers and Texas to get ready for many children who may need basic medical care

Unlikely? Oh. Well, if you're THAT sure about it, Yasmin.

By the way, Yasmin Seema is an interesting name. Scandanavian, is it? Norway, right?

From the CDC:

Immigrant and Refugee Health

On average, more than 50,000 refugees relocate to the United States annually. 1 They come from diverse regions of the world and bring with them health risks and diseases common to all refugee populations as well as some that may be unique to specific populations.

Jeanine Pirro interviewed a border patrol agent last night. He said we have MS 13 members bragging about their multiple murders and are still being turned loose in America.

I can’t imagine Obama expects them to do anything but violence in America. It reminds me of Saddam Hussein throwing the doors of the prisons open when it was clear he was going to lose.

REPORT: Illegals Bring Contagious Diseases Across Border – Obama Spreads Them Around Country

A brave news report by Phoenix station ABC-15 says that the Obama administration is dumping contagious disease carrying illegal aliens all across the country.

Reporter Navideh Forghani reported on Friday from the border town McAllen, Texas that illegal aliens are being found with scabies, chicken pox, MRSA, and other contagious viruses. All that separates the quarantined in border detention centers from the seemingly healthy is a swatch of yellow plastic tape according to Forghani. After processing by ICE , illegal aliens are being dumped by the Obama administration on states across the country, but mainly Arizona.

The flood of contagious illegal aliens has Border Patrol agents sounding the alarm:

The "Children" narrative needs to go.

Rep. Mike McCaul: Halt Flow of Illegal Immigrants to Protect Kids

McCaul visited a facility earlier this month in McAllen, Texas, where a group of immigrants was being held. He described the facility as a "refugee camp in the United States." Many of the illegal immigrants are teenage boys, he said.

"About 80 percent, though, of these so-called children are about 16 to 17 years old, most male. That, from a security standpoint, greatly concerns me," he said. "What are they going to be doing in the United States of America with no education? They can't speak English. That's the threat that I think a lot of people are concerned about."

The DMN has been nothing but pro Jenkins for weeks now. I have emailed and called these “journalists” informing them of the health issues that I have read about and heard about on FOX news. Of course they are downplaying it. Can’t tell the truth. If even one American gets TB or scabies, it is an issue. I guess they didn’t read about the border patrol agents that have gotten sick. Covering for Jenkins is all they are doing.

Why do I believe REAL physicians working on the front lines rather than a so-called doctor as Yasmin claims that teaches yoga to convicts at Rikers Island?

Health Officials: Immigrant Surge is a Medical Crisis

by Alexa Ura
June 24, 2014

“During a recent visit to two detention centers that house undocumented migrant children, officials with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) reported that conditions there posed a high risk for infectious disease outbreaks.

Meanwhile, doctors providing medical care for immigrants being released by U.S. Border Patrol ahead of their court dates say those recent detainees were not appropriately screened or treated for illness while in federal

During a tour of detention centers in Brownsville and McAllen last week, state public health officials identified several health-related issues, including a lack of medicine for child immigrants, no comprehensive medical screenings and no testing for vaccinations or tuberculosis.

“Our staff believe the children’s living conditions pose a high potential for infectious disease outbreak among the children and staff,” department spokeswoman Carrie Williams said. “The conditions are not healthy and not acceptable for children by Texas and national public health standards.”

You were right to put the word "journalist" into quotation marks.

These people are not journalists. They are repeaters, not reporters.

They probably don't even realize they have picked sides because even that would require some sort of mental exertion.

Well then, all the public health efforts and vaccinations we've been doing for over a century in this country must be meaningless.

It is 95.67% likely they are lying.

Statistics are not appropriate for n=1.

Furthermore, in THIS case, Swine flu, tuberculosis,
cholera, whooping cough, measles, scabies,
chicken pox and strep are not the only
diseases ALREADY found to having been carried.

United States immigration law requires immigrant visa applicants to obtain certain vaccinations (listed below) prior to the issuance of an immigrant visa. Panel physicians who conduct medical examinations of immigrant visa applicants are required to verify that immigrant visa applicants have met the vaccination requirements, or that it is medically inappropriate for the visa applicant to receive one or more of the listed vaccinations:

Hepatitis A
Hepatitis B
Influenza
Influenza type b (Hib)
Measles
Meningococcal
Mumps
Pneumococcal
Pertussis
Polio
Rotavirus
Rubella
Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids
Varicella
In order to assist the panel physican, and to avoid delays in the processing of an immigrant visa, all immigrant visa applicants should have their vaccination records available for the panel physician’s review at the time of the immigrant medical examination. Visa applicants should consult with their regular health care provider to obtain a copy of their immunization record, if one is available. If you do not have a vaccination record, the panel physician will work with you to determine which vaccinations you may need to meet the requirement. Certain waivers of the vaccination requirement are available upon the recommendation of the panel physician.

I think scurvy cannot be spread, it is a deficiency disease. Scurvy is caused by a severe lack of vitamin C.
