Exclusive: Feds Struggling to Cope With Medical ‘Breakdown’ at the Border
ABC News ^ | July 17, 2014 | Josh Margolin

The federal government is so overwhelmed by the current tide of migrants crossing the border it can’t provide basic medical screening to all of the children before transporting them – often by air – to longer-term holding facilities across the country, ABC News has learned.

The director of refugee health in the federal Health and Human Services Department “has identified a breakdown of the medical screening processes at the Nogales, Arizona, facility,” according to an internal Department of Defense memo reviewed by ABC News. The “breakdown” a systemic failure of the handoff of these children between CBP and HHS.

When you elect a man as President who grew up in a 3rd World country with no allegiance to America or it’s people, then you have a President who has no problem turning America into. 3rd World country.

He is destroying the country from the inside out.

By November all the illegals will be in their safe houses and ready to vote. Obama will make a grand tour of the border to encourage the political payback. Voter ID will be an affront to Civil Rights and therefore unnecessary..... the Nina Burleigh Press will record the tour as wide and deep as they are able, reminding the illegals and their supporters “The Who, who did it for them.”
Another score of years and I will be out of this nut house.

Struggling?
If struggling, why are these diseases being triaged
to Obama’s 57 states?
How is this different from English Kings spreading
smallpox to America?

Where are the EXEMPT vermin in the US Congress
who allow this, who have allowed this, and who
profit from this?

Was not their Oath, their SOLE ROLE
to protect the states?
Instead, they have spread the worst diseases secretly.

I don’t think this is working nearly as well as they hoped. It has a lot of their core upset, too. This may benefit us tighten the border people if the heat can continue.

The videos at ABC are examples of some of the most biased reporting you will ever see.

Especially when he can continue to live large while everybody else’s lifestyle collapses.

Obama is leading the medical ‘Breakdown’ at the border, along with a constitutional breakdown, a rule of law breakdown, a national security breakdown, an economic breakdown, a breakdown in privacy rights, and a cultural breakdown.

It’s called “fundamental change”. Elections have consequences and the idiot party chose McCain and Romney to lead their opposition.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy and Saul Alinsky all say "the system must be overwhelmed" for the revolution etc. to work

The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of "a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty".

Cloward and Piven were a married couple who were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work. The strategy was formulated in a May 1966 article in the liberal magazine "The Nation" titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty"

Hope they send all these diseased aliens to MA and NY, because we know how those loud-mouthed Democrats can lecture those of us in the border states on compassion.

Bingo. I mentioned last week about how he did not grow up playing Little League or AYSO soccer (or taking ballet lessons like Rahm Emanuel or Ronnie Reagan). He did not participate in July 4 fireworks and develop a sense of patriotism in his formative years. His development was as a Muslim in a foreign country. He hates this nation for its colonial past and has been determined to punish it. He is succeeding in that quest.

The LAST thing any of the left want right now is to be in danger of all those diseases. A lot on the left are health food nuts and very paranoid about anything that might sicken or kill them in the environment. They need to be made aware of how this government is endangering their health and their lives. That will enrage them after all their efforts to stay healthy.

I wonder if the CDC were following it’s protocols, if it would immediately prohibit any transport (as it would be an unacceptable risk of spreading highly infectious and dangerous diseases.)

Also, the Office of the Surgeon General is vacant.

The last one resigned in late 2013, an Admiral filled in for a few months, the President appointed another who was judged unqualified and the position has remained vacant ever since.

So, there is no US Surgeon General addressing any health related matters in the US including the border illegals health issues being distributed throughout the country.

Of course moving the border patrol actually up to the border and preventing them from crossing in the first place is just not an option.

"...President who grew up in a 3rd World country ...

I believe a person's normal is what they knew and learned and witnessed up to age 8 or so.

Policy Change! The new Border Patrol Uniform is a lightweight oversized Hazmat suit. It is Unisex and comes in three colors, red white and blue. Or a combination of the three as camoflage.
