Immigration Bringing More Leprosy to U.S.
"Leprosy, the disfiguring scourge of the skin most associated with exotic lands and Bible stories, is increasing because of immigration from Southeast Asia and Latin America."
Question: which extreme right-wing news outlet published that defamatory, scare-mongering, headline and report? Infowars? Breitbart? Fox News, perhaps?
Nope. It was . . . The New York Times. The article dates to 1983. But there have been more recent reports of the same problem, as here, here and here. In each article, it is mentioned that the great majority of leprosy cases in the U.S. are diagnosed among immigrants, many from Latin America.
Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic took it a step further:
JEFFREY GOLDBERG: They're talking about leprosy. Which I think is interesting, because leprosy, of course, is the most famous disease in the Bible. And I think they are trying to actually trigger people who are Bible-readers.

Liberal magazine editor claims Fox News trying to trigger “Bible-readers” with fears that immigrants are bringing leprosy.
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
What does the Bible say about tuberculosis and measles?
Wait until some Libtard’s Kid contracts Polio from an Illegal third world schoolmate.
We have been commanded to cleanse the lepers. So, I will obey and lay my hands on them and watch the God of all mercy heal them.
He’ll claim Trump should have stopped it somehow, even though the Left is doing its best to hamstring Trump.
They really do have serious issues.
The same bastards are saying this who said that Columbus brought disease to this continent.
Leprosy is treatable with antibiotics. The World Health Organization provides the antibiotics free.
I guess we can conclude that Jeffrey Goldberg isn’t a member of “Jews for Jesus!”
Not the kind they are talking about.
REad the book “Lost City of the Monkey God” by Preston.
Leishmaniasis (also known as White Leprosy) is not curable and is transported by sandflys that bite infected mammals. It’s spreading from Central America via mass migration. Usually though pets being brought by migrants. It can be stopped by a very painful and nasty procedure, but, all this does is weaken the disease until your body can fight it off.
We do NOT want this coming here.
Their ignorance is satisfying - leprosy would be the least of our worries these days.
Every time I see a leftard talking head, I imagine a head exploding. These people are insane.
They are bringing worse diseases than leprosy. Drug resistant TB and I suspect AFM, the polio-like disease that affects kids.
Is this the necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating disease) that has only been in the headlines in the past few years? It’s typical of the leftie media to re-name things that don’t fit the narrative... Just sayin.’
God didn’t make diseases. Diseases area by-product of the fall. That’s why He commands us to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out devils, to show He is Lord. Light swallows up darkness and life is always greater than death.
Good book! Bad disease, though.
