Disease Tsunami Washing Across Our Border
Investor's Business Daily ^ | July 18, 2014 | IBD EDITOTIALS

Posted on 07/18/2014 9:59:02 AM PDT by raptor22

Immigration: With medical professionals overwhelmed by border chaos, illegal aliens are being sent across the U.S. without basic health screening, raising the prospect of epidemics of diseases once thought eradicated.

As unaccompanied minors from Central America who have flooded across President Obama's open borders are dispersed nationwide from Nebraska to Illinois to Massachusetts, concerns have arisen that the nation's health has been put at risk by poor and even absent medical screening.

An internal Department of Defense memo obtained by ABC News reports that the director of refugee health at Health and Human Services "has identified a breakdown of the medical screening processes at the Nogales, Ariz., facility." This may be just the tip of a medical-disaster iceberg.

Officials involved in moving the immigrants from Border Patrol processing centers to Health and Human Services facilities are, according to the memo, "putting sick (fevers and coughing) unaccompanied children on airplanes inbound for (Naval Base Ventura County) in addition to the chicken pox and coxsackie virus cases."

The mules with infection are being sent to all 57 states.

The EXEMPT Congress could not care less about this
or the murders and rapes and terrorism by their
newly minted, weaponized, escorted “voters”.

You can’t bring a dog or a parakeet into this country without the direct consent of God and all his disciples... but some how it’s OK for tens of thousands of diseased humans to casually step into this country without even a pretense of medical screening??

W T F?!!

Why are the airlines going along with this? At the peril of the safety of their (general public) passengers?

The last Obama nominated US Surgeon General candidate was rejected in March of 2014, the previous one having resigned at the end of 2013, possibly with forewarning of the “invasion”. Florida has a Surgeon General and he has written a letter to HHS as just posted a few posts back by Politico2isBack on this site:

All states with a Surgeon General should be considering a States Surgeon Generals emergency conference.

Because King Obama would shut them down like he did the car dealerships.

I hope the flying public realizes that it is not safe for them to fly because of what they might catch in the cabin and the seat cushions could be full of scabies mites.

Florida State Surgeon General Letter to HHS Regarding Unaccompanied Children

Florida Department of Health ^ | July 18, 2014 | Dr. John H. Armstrong

Posted on 7/18/2014 9:56:11 AM by Politico2isBack

July 18, 2014

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 200 Independence Avenue, S.W. Washington, DC 20201

Craig Fugate, Administrator Federal Emergency Management Agency U.S. Department of Homeland Security 500 C Street SW Washington, DC 20472

Secretary Burwell and Administrator Fugate

The Florida Department of Health has received unconfirmed reports that the federal government is bringing unaccompanied minors from the border to Florida today. On July 17, we received unconfirmed information that dozens of children were being brought by plane into Miami on Friday. This same day, ABC news reported that “the federal government is so overwhelmed by the current tide of migrants crossing the border it cannot provide basic medical screening to all of these children before transporting them, often by air, to longer-term holding facilities across the country.” (Feds Struggling to Cope with Medical ‘Breakdown’ at the Border, ABC News, July 17, 2014.)

Specifically, ABC News reported that your Health and Human Services Department’s Director of Refugee Health said you, “identified a breakdown of the medical screening processes.” This breakdown was described in the news report as “a systemic failure of the handoff of these children between Customs Border Protection (CBP) and Health and Human Services (HHS).”

If these reports are accurate, this “systemic failure” in the federal system is extremely worrisome. In order to fulfill my duties as Florida’s State Surgeon General, I am asking you to immediately provide the below information. This information is urgently needed to guard the health and safety of Florida communities across our state and is vital to the well-being of those children from the border who may have come through the flawed federal system.

• Will you notify the Florida Department of Health immediately of any current or future unaccompanied minors coming to, or placed in, Florida, including their current location?

• Are you conducting health screenings both at the border and again at the time the children are placed in shelters?

• What medical services, if any, were provided to any children placed in Florida?

• Do you have any records of infectious diseases associated with the children currently in federal care in Florida?

• Have any of the children been hospitalized in Florida with fevers accompanying their illnesses? If so, where are they being treated?

Because of the urgency of this request, this letter is being immediately emailed and faxed to you. I expect a prompt response to my request for information on existing unaccompanied minors in Florida and would like to stress the importance of future timely communications.

Sincerely,

John H. Armstrong, MD, FACS State Surgeon General and Secretary Florida Department of Health

A few of us before this Hate America traitor became our faux president, tried to tell the world why he was carrying the book, "The Post America World". Now a few are starting to wake up.

People may think they are safe if they don’t live in the southwest. Wrong. These kids can be in every nook and cranny of the country in under 12 hours. But the media won’t talk about this because that would be raaacist.

And for those who think they can’t get measles, chicken pox again if you already had them,,,wrong. You can get them a second time, and the second time is much more deadly.

We’re also going to see a crime tsunami wherever these “big kids” happen to be shipped to.

And I think you’d see a pattern if it could be analyzed -

the criminals/gang bangers are being shipped to conservative communities as “punishment” from the Big O.
