Posted on 07/13/2014 7:05:13 AM PDT by DallasBiff
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

They are losing. Clay Jenkins has delayed the invasion to Dallas County.
By the way, Yasmin Seema is an interesting name. Scandanavian, is it? Norway, right?
That is right up there with, ‘You can keep your doctor”.
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.
Ellis Island was a place that kept disease form our shores. It is good that all the disease in the world has been eradicated.
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:
I think it’s settled science so we’re not allowed to question it.
covered with lice, suffering from tuberculosis, pneumonia and who knows what else?
Disease is a given.
The risk is “low”. Doesn’t that declaration from officials with an agenda make you feel better?
You will not surely die.
Also, gay men with aids and other deadly diseases can safely donate blood. (total sarcasm here)
They must have missed the Obama lame duck memo you know how slow they are on the up tick.
Sub unlikely to set in the West...
Obama’s germ warfare on the people of the USA?
Tell ya what Seema and Sherry... go pick up your children and grandchildren, and drive them down to one of these centers to let them play with the children there. After all, it’s no threat, right?
"I'm a medical doctor and journalist-in-training at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, although I live in NYC and report on domestic public health issues. When I'm not studying or writing, I teach yoga at Rikers Island correctional facility and make dresses. "
The old “experts say” trick of the MSM. Yep,
By experts they mean three guys in the news room.
Spoken by the same people who go into hysterics over 'global warming'.
If they're so *safe* why have none of them been
relocated smuggled into Washington, D.C.?
All your disease are belong to us.
A nicely “placed” news story by the Administration...
Video: Some who were dispersed by our criminal govt. throughout the U.S. are not showing the symptoms yet:
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.
When did Jenkins delay the invasion? I haven’t read that. We need to keep calling.
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 childrens 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.
So, she is willing to come to the US-Mexico border and examine the “dear young children” herself, eh?
Buried in that article today was the fact that most are teenagers, many are illiterate and have no idea what their vaccination records are.
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.
Send them to DC, Baltimore, Chicago, Oakland, Newark, NOLA.........
Well then, all the public health efforts and vaccinations we've been doing for over a century in this country must be meaningless.
I just emailed Yasmin. I’m sick of this.
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.
One way or another.
[this is not her latest interview]
Now you know why Ubama won’t go to one of these interment camps. He doesn’t want to get TB or scurvy.
Good on ya. Did you suggest she make a personal visit to one of these camps along with her children?
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:
Influenza type b (Hib)
Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids
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.
Not to say....he wouldn’t spread his own communicables to the illegals. ;)
Thank you for the correction. I guess that makes me about as much of a medical professional as Seema Yasmin and Sherry Richardson.
Jon Voight on Huckabee 7/12/14
GEESH. You can’t bring a dog in, without a quarantine.
The older I get, the less I trust in the predictions of ‘Experts’.
Not to worry darling.
What the doc on Judge Janine said, last night, the CDC isn’t even sending out warnings to the public [in Texas] on what to be watchful of.
Be safe down there.
