CDC Rules for Sick Illegal Immigrants
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), all legal immigrants must be screened and approved before entering the U.S.
The agency states on its website, "The health-related grounds for inadmissibility include persons
[1.] who have a communicable disease of public health significance,
[2.] who fail to present documentation of having received vaccination against vaccine-preventable diseases,
[3.] who have or have had a physical or mental disorder with associated harmful behavior, or
[4.] who are a drug abuser or an addict."
But the same rules apparently do not apply to illegal immigrants.
The names sound like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. Yet, threats to Americans are real, and escalating by the week.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported on August 1 that serious diseases are spreading at detention centers for Illegal border crossers.
Health care workers and Border Patrol agents,
plus their children,
have tested positive for tuberculosis (TB), swine flu, chicken pox, lice and scabies. Instead of being quarantined,
illegal border crossers are being dispersed rapidly across the U.S., with those of school age being registered in public schools opening soon for all.
Border Patrol Council reports that 75 percent of illegal border crossers are from countries around the globe, other than Mexico.
They are bringing diseases not common to, or eradicated from, the U.S.:
Multiple-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB) is spreading in India and Pakistan. Illegals from those countries have been identified coming across our southern borders.
July 23, China announced it had sealed off the city of Yumen due to a deadly outbreak of bubonic plague. Chinese are so numerous in the current surge of illegals that the federal government has added Mandarin translations to emergency signs across the Texas border regions.
Mexico has serious outbreaks of dengue fever, which can produce debilitating physical and neurological effects, and also has more severe and deadly hemorrhagic forms.
Deadly Ebola hemorrhagic fever is raging out of control in multiple countries in West Africa. Border Patrol agents confirmed that West Africans have been apprehended coming via Mexico into the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, with a number of seriously ill individuals whisked away to undisclosed locations for treatment of undisclosed illnesses.
ABC News reported in mid-July that seriously ill illegals were flown from Texas to Ventura Naval base recently with high fever, respiratory difficulties, and coughing blood. At least three required ICU admission.
No information was released on what illness was diagnosed, but the time course, severity of symptoms, and need for immediate ICU treatment is not typical for tuberculosis and more consistent with Ebola or hemorrhagic forms of dengue fever.
