By comparison, one in six kids in Texas is uninsured, and even insured families often must pay for vaccination. That means that many Texas kids fall behind on vaccinations, or miss them altogether when their family can’t afford a doctor’s visit. Other families refuse vaccination.
Governments concerned about health, and good parents investing in their kids, have made Central American kids better-vaccinated than Texan kids.
Before demonizing undocumented children, we should look at the facts: The vast majority of Central Americans are vaccinated against all these diseases.

There is a simple resolution to this problem....STOP LETTING ILLEGALS INTO THE USA!!!
Help our own sick and homeless first, then go try and save the rest of the world!!
Put some effing money into a fund to help our own right now!!
I agree that is propaganda youu just posted. We are talking about illegal immagration and your post does not seperate the two thereby pointing the reader to think illegal immagrants are more healthy than native children.

Immigrant children are more likely to be vaccinated and be healthier than American kids.

Illegals have been coming into the country for years. The better question is why is this batch of illegals suddenly cause for alarm for vaccinations and diseases? Shouldn't we have been under threat of these third world contagions our entire lives (or for how long the illegals have been hopping the border illegally)?
