Now this is quite shocking to me. We have enough problems with HIV here in this country, yet this isn't seen as a threat?

What is funny is this time last year, the CDC said HIV cases are on the rise and higher than previously thought.




ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- There are more new cases of Americans infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, than previously believed, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Saturday.

About 56,000 people became infected with HIV in the past year, which translates to about 40 percent more cases than officials had estimated, said Dr. Kevin Fenton, director of the CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention.

Previous CDC estimates suggested about 40,000 new people were infected each year. But those estimates used "limited data and less precise methods," said the center, which is now using technology capable of determining when someone was infected.

The new method can indicate whether someone has been infected with HIV during the previous five months, rather than relying on statistical models.

Diagnosis of HIV can occur years after infection, he said.

"The fact that 56,000 Americans each year are contracting HIV for the first time is a wake-up call for all of us in the U.S.," Fenton said.

"These numbers are a scathing indictment of how profoundly U.S. and CDC HIV prevention efforts have failed," said Michael Weinstein, president of AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which calls itself "the nation's largest provider of HIV/AIDS medical care."

Why should we be letting people come in with known diseases that we do not have a cure for?

Hey, once we have Obamacare, we won't have to worry about it. The government will have to foot the bill to treat them.

And to think we turned back people at Ellis simply because they were retarded. But it's OK to have someone come into the country who's HIV+.

They let in gang members, child molesters, murderers and thieves, so Somehow I am not surprised. Why? Good question!
