Flood of illegal aliens will spread disease across the country

It was recently reported that the U.S. Border Patrol is now releasing 500 illegal aliens per week in Arizona and South Texas. The agents are apparently dropping them off at Greyhound bus stations, knowing they will never voluntarily return for a deportation hearing, allowing them to spread-out across the country.

Of course, these foreign nationals are never screened or quarantined for disease, allowing them to potentially infect communities from coast to coast with diseases once thought eradicated in the U.S.

However, that risk is just a drop in the bucket, compared to the human tidal wave of "unaccompanied minors" currently washing over our border, all with the approval of President Obama.

On Monday, the Obama administration announced they would begin providing emergency shelter to the illegal aliens currently surging across our Southern border, at Fort Sill Army Base in Oklahoma. Making it the third U.S. military base currently housing mostly minors from Central America.

Facilities at both Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, and Naval Base Ventura County, California, have also been commandeered by the Obama administration to house thousands of illegal alien minors.

Most of these children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are coming here to join family, already living illegally in the United States. Rather than being sent back to their home countries, they are turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services which will presumably reunite them with their families.

A leaked Border Patrol memo stated that the agency expects to see more than 230,000 unaccompanied minors to make the illegal journey to this country by the end of 2015, the Associated Press reported.

Thus, diseases only common to Central and America could reach epidemic proportions in cities as far away from the border as Raleigh, North Carolina, and Virginia Beach, Virginia (both 'sanctuary cities').

What diseases could we see?

-Chagas disease, which is caused by a parasite known as trypanosome, a blood-borne disease and is spread by triatomine insects. The parasite burrows into human tissue (usually in the face), where it then begins to multiply. In addition to being spread by insects, it can also be contracted through blood transfusions.

After cases of Chagas were reportedly discovered to have been spread by transfusions in Canada, that nation began testing all blood donations for the disease.

-Tuberculosis...Once thought to be nearly eradicated in this country, TB has been making a strong comeback, thanks to unchecked immigration.

In a 2005 interview with Mother Jones Magazine, Dr. Reichman of The New Jersey TB Clinic said:

In the 1990's, cases among foreign born Americans rose from 29 percent to 41.6 percent. Antibiotic resistant strains from Mexico have migrated to Texas. Since three years ago, 16,000 new cases of TB were discovered in the United States. Half were foreign born. Strains of TB once only found in Mexico have migrated to the border states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. It will move north as illegal aliens work in restaurants as cooks, dishwashers, and food handlers. We sit on the edge of a potential catastrophe.”

In 2001, New York's Tuberculosis Control Program discovered that 81 percent of that city's new cases of TB were attributed to foreign nationals.

It costs between $250K to $1million to treat a patient with TB.

So, what actions is President Obama taking to protect this nation from such epidemics?...Nothing. He is instead, providing taxpayer-funded lawyers to these illegal aliens to protect them from deportation judges.

The Justice Department "aims to recruit 100 lawyers and paralegals to shepherd the children through the immigration system," reported the Washington Times.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said:

We’re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society."

Obviously, the "rights" of those in other nations, now trump the rights of citizens and those who have immigrated to this country through legal means. Evidently, the health of U.S. citizens is no longer as important as that of those in Central America and Mexico as well.

It is apparent that the Obama administration has entered into a coordinated effort with Mexico to bring potentially hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to this country from Central America in a very short period of time. Remember, Mexico actually has a wall along its border with Guatemala, and immigration violations in Mexico are taken seriously, unlike in this country.

Why is Obama blatantly violating our immigration laws?...He is attempting to change the demographics of this nation, overnight, in order to eliminate the GOP as a national party.

This president is willing to risk the collective health of our children for politics. Of course, given the fact that thousands of children are molested in this country every year by illegal aliens, Obama's disregard for the welfare of anyone's children but that of his own should not come as a big surprise.
