    The superintendent of St. Louis Park High School reported a case of tuberculosis. The school district says it was notified by the Hennepin County Department of Health that one individual at the high school had been diagnosed with active TB in late November. The individual was receiving medical care by the time the school district was notified. But the school district says the person was contagious in September, October and November before the diagnosis was determined. The superintendent says the Hennepin County Department of Health asked the district to wait to communicate the information until they could determine who else...

    Six refugees in Wisconsin were diagnosed with multi-drug resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) in 2014 and 2015, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. As Breitbart News reported previously, twenty-one additional refugees in Wisconsin were diagnosed with active TB during the same time period, making the Badger State the refugee TB capital of the country, at least among the handful of states that have so far reported that data. Other states that have reported active TB among refugees include Louisiana (21), Vermont (17), Colorado (16), Florida (11), Kentucky (9 in one county), Idaho (7), Indiana (4), and North Dakota (4...

    After Breitbart News reported that three refugees in Vermont have been diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) over the past seven months, an official with the Vermont Department of Health admitted that a total of fifteen refugees in the Green Mountain State were diagnosed with active TB between 2003 and 2015. Since only 6,300 refugees have arrived in Vermont over the past twenty-five years, these new statistics reveal a third-world level of active TB among the refugees currently residing in the Green Mountain State.

    A spokesperson for the Vermont Department of Health confirms to Breitbart News that “three refugees [have been] diagnosed with TB in Vermont over the past seven months.” One case was diagnosed in December 2015, and the other two cases were diagnosed in 2016. No one other than a refugee has been diagnosed with active TB in Vermont during the first six months of 2016, the spokesperson adds. The stunning admission comes after Breitbart News reported that the number of active TB cases in Vermont tripled from two in 2014 to seven in 2015. “In 2015 Active TB Cases were seven....

    Seven refugees with active tuberculosis (TB) were diagnosed shortly after their resettlement in Idaho between 2011 and 2015, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. This makes Idaho the seventh state to confirm to Breitbart News that recently arrived refugees have been diagnosed with active TB. -snip- Idaho is one of fourteen states that have withdrawn from the federal refugee resettlement program where the federal government has hired a voluntary agency (VOLAG) to resettle refugees under the statutorily questionable Wilson Fish alternative program. In Idaho, the federal government has contracted the Idaho Office for Refugees (IOR), a division...

    Vermont Watchdog ^ | June 27, 2016 | By Bruce Parker
    BURLINGTON, Vt. — Epidemiologists at the Vermont Department of Health are concealing the number of refugees with contagious active tuberculosis nearly a month after Watchdog reported that more than one-third of Vermont’s resettled refugees test positive for TB. Earlier this month, Watchdog revealed that 35 percent of Vermont’s incoming refugees in the past four years tested positive for tuberculosis. How many of those cases are contagious and symptomatic, however, remains a secret, as state epidemiologists and top officials at the Health Department have spent weeks blocking efforts to obtain the data. Refugees brought to the United States take TB tests...

    Six diseases that were recently near eradication are making a comeback in the United States, as the taxpayer funded refugee resettlement industry launches a propaganda blitz about the so-called World Refugee Day this Monday. The returning diseases are; 1. Tuberculosis 2. Measles 3. Whooping Cough 4. Mumps 5. Scarlet Fever 6. Bubonic Plague The near eradication of these diseases in the United States during the twentieth century was a remarkable accomplishment of American civilization. Until recently, most Americans believed these diseases were gone from our shores for good. But a politicized public health system, and a rise in the subsidized migration into...

    California Watchdog ^ | 6/16/2016 | Kenric Ward
    Newly arrived refugees have doubled the incidence of tuberculosis in Texas, Watchdog.org has learned. The Department of State Health Services said 1,238 refugees, asylum-seekers, Cuban parolees, human-trafficking victims and holders of special immigrant visas tested positive for TB. Texas typically reports 1,200 to 1,300 active TB cases annually, DSHS said. DSHS spokesman Chris Van Deusen said the positive screenings by refugees could indicate latent TB infections. “They have been exposed to TB and have the bacteria dormant in their body. It does not indicate that they are sick with tuberculosis and capable of spreading it,” Van Deusen said. But the...

    Data from the Vermont Department of Health show that more than one-third of refugees resettled in Vermont test positive for tuberculosis.

Of that number, 318 refugees, or 35.4 percent, tested positive. Watchdog.org obtained the health data on Wednesday following reporting by Stateline that the disease may be making a comeback in the United States.

One paragraph states: “It is clear that some of the illegal aliens who are sneaking into our country are bringing deadly diseases with them. Small pox, Chicken pox, measles, scabies, TB, Cholera and an assortment of other dangerous, communicable diseases can be found in the holding facilities that house these people.” One of our readers commented: "Bringing small pox"? Really? Smallpox, which has been eliminated in nature... is being brought to the US by illegal aliens. Citation needed.” A brief description of the...

In a frenzied rush to bring as many non-English-speaking Third World aliens to the country as possible before his presidency ends in a few months, Obama is allowing Syrian war migrants and refugees to be brought into the country without first undergoing proper medical examinations, a violation of the nation’s most basic public health protocols.

    Four refugees sent to Indiana by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement in 2015 were diagnosed with active tuberculosis once they arrived in the Hoosier State, according to the Indiana Department of Health. Active tuberculosis (TB) is infectious, while so-called “latent TB” is not infectious. But 10 percent of those infected with latent TB develop active infectious TB. In 2015, almost 400 migrants with latent TB settled in Indiana, according to state records. The state’s TB rate had declined for the 54 years up to 2010, but is now increasing as more migrants settle in the state. ... More significantly,...
