It is certainly not an unfounded statement my friend. People traveling on airports can indeed spread disease, but are much less likely to than if they
are from a less wealthy country with very little medical aid, and many do not even know they have a disease. The thing is, I am not referring to
illegle immigrants as disease ridden rodents. It is just when a big population of people from a different part of the world move into America
abruptly, many diseases which had not plagued the US for years would reappear. Especially with overpopulation in the states, it certainly allows
spreading to be much quicker. However, it is quite apparent to scientists and officials that such a possibility needs to be addressed. Airplanes we
are talking about a small amount of people traveling in and out, when compared to the 10 million people flocking to this country as we speak to obtain
legal citizenship. Much, much bigger numbers than you see from traveling into the US.
