"Referring to borders between states, ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser said a mouthful when he pointed out that “Viruses don't tend to respect borders.” The problem for America is that if international borders are not respected, viruses native to other countries migrate as well, and to date are being scattered around the nation, rather than deported." ~ Jeannie DeAngelisIf the politicos and pundits can quiet down for just a moment, and someone please shut Jeb Bush up (no, amnesty won't win back the Senate for the GOP, dummy), maybe we can have an adult moment to discuss the detrimental affects that unchecked mass immigration, particularly of the illegal persuasion, is having on this country.
Just as most conservatives warned, the majority of illegals that have crossed the border, but were released by the Obama administration into the interior of the country FAILED to report back to federal agents...
AP: Tens of thousands of young families caught crossing the border illegally earlier this year subsequently failed to meet with federal immigration agents, as they were instructed, the Homeland Security Department has acknowledged privately.Yes, that would be the same AP who openly mocked Americans for suggesting illegals wouldn't report back. Naiveté or subversive advocacy? Likely the latter.
An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that about 70 percent of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow up appointments.
The ICE official made the disclosure in a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies. The Associated Press obtained an audio recording of Wednesday's meeting and separately interviewed participants.
But there's a deadlier side to the rampant illegality that the Obama administration and the media advocates allow to plague our nation. And plague is the appropriate word to use...
JoeForAmerica: One of the concerns many rational, thinking people have expressed in connection with the runaway invasion of our border by illegal immigrants is for the spread of unusual, potentially deadly diseases.Related links: Did Obama Import Diseases Via Illegal Aliens? Looks Like It
With the Obama Administration busing and flying inadequately screened illegal aliens to unsuspecting communities all around the United States, it’s only a matter of time before a rash of novel illnesses sweeps the country, we warned.
No, no, it will never happen, the White House and liberals assured us, calling those who raised legitimate questions fear-mongers or worse.
Now there’s a “mystery” virus spreading across the country rapidly. The enterovirus D68 has been affecting mostly children. The symptoms don’t sound much different from a cold, but dozens of children in multiple states have been made sick enough to require hospitalization.
Obama endangering US children with Central American illegal aliens, Enterovirus 68 found in polio like syndrome children, Obama ignored health professionals warnings, Other diseases brought by illegals?
Furthermore, Enterovirus D68 may be the cause of polio-like illnesses cropping up in children...
LegalInsurrection: An awful trait of pathogens is that the more rapidly they spread, the nastier their health effects can become. It appears Enterovirus 68 may be following this pattern. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is checking into reports that limb weakness and paralysis in nine children may be related to the far-reaching outbreak of the respiratory disease.With the Obama administration's open border policy and lack of adequate health screening, as our ancestor's received upon immigrating to this country, these illegal children have been shuffled to undisclosed destinations throughout the interior with God knows what. But I guess it’s more important to appease the minority of advocates than to have a overall healthy population? And when it is discovered for certain that all of this is another result of illegal immigration, will the media consider this an accident of the regime or a deliberate, premeditated action? And that might lead to a broader question: Is Obama trying to get us killed?
'The CDC released a statement today saying nine children in Denver had reported a neurologic illness that led to some limb weakness or paralyzation. All of the children had reported having a kind of respiratory virus before showing symptoms of limb weakness.Earlier this year, as many as 25 California children were reported to be suffering from a mysterious, polio-like virus capable of paralyzing limbs.
Six of the eight children tested were found to be positive for a rhinovirus or enterovirus and four of those cases were found to be the Enterovirus 68. The other two cases were still pending.'
Sadly, it appears that the virus may have taken the life of a 4-year old.
'A New Jersey pre-schooler is dead after suffering an unidentified illness, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will test to see if the now-infamous enterovirus D68might have been the cause.'
AmericanThinker: As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible?From news Friday, apparently the regime's not done spreading disease. They're now affecting and infecting military recruitment with illegal enlistment. Congress? No matter how many fiery hoops jumped through, the executive branch cannot unilaterally change immigration LAW! Grow a pair and hold this White House accountable, Capitol Hill! If for nothing else, for the health of your country's sake!
On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.
Now the feds are spreading these disease vectors from sea to shining sea, stuffed full of HIV, scabies, TB, swine flu, MRSA staph infections, syphilis, and other communicable infestations. “One person can infect a thousand people, and then that thousand can infect thousands more. There is an exponential increase," warns public health expert...
Already, Border Patrol agents are getting sick from these contacts; soon these kids will start showing up in your public school. If you found it annoying when little Jake caught that cold that was going around, wait till he comes home with swine flu. ...
It’s difficult to keep count, but Obama’s various maneuvers seem to heighten the probability that we’ll be shot, stabbed, run over, bombed, gassed, overdosed, beheaded, starved, strangled, sickened, and generally hounded to death.
Please, wake up, America.
ADDENDUM: Obama's bringing more illegals to our shores (notice 'illegal' isn't mentioned once in this report...sap media)...
DallasNews: The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.As for health screenings, don't count on it. Luckily it's limited to 4000 refugee slots, but still a misuse of the terms and conditions...and risk. Politics over health, though (same experience with Obamacare).
Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S.
UPDATES: Enterovirus D68 has been found in 4 recently deceased patients...
CNN: Samples collected from four patients who recently died have tested positive for enterovirus D68, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention....including a 10-year-old girl...
It is unclear what role the virus played in their deaths. In fact, it's possible that enterovirus had nothing to do with them. The virus is very common, especially in the late summer and early fall, with the CDC estimating 10 million to 15 million infections each year in the United States.
Yet the deaths do raise an alarm because this year has been worse than some other years, since enterovirus D68 has been sending more children than usual to the hospital with severe respiratory illnesses. It seems to be most affecting children with a history of asthma or breathing problems.
As of Wednesday, the CDC had confirmed 500 people in 42 states have respiratory illnesses caused by enterovirus D68.
There's no white washing this. We're reminded that this DEADLY enterovirus sweeping across the U.S. has knowingly afflicted Central America before and is plausibly the source with illegals pouring across our unsecured border...
GatewayPundit: A child with a staph infection and Enterovirus D68 has died in Rhode Island, the state’s health department announced today. The child passed away last week.
It may not have been the first death linked to Enterovirus D68…
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also has detected enterovirus D68 in samples from patients who died recently in other states.
IBD: All of this raises the possibility that in throwing open our border for political purposes, the U.S. is exposing itself to a host of nasty diseases and epidemics. ...Continuing with GatewayPundit...
It's plain what's bringing up this great wave of diseases: immigration politics.
President Obama is so obsessed with winning Latino votes for Democrats by neglecting border laws that he's unwittingly opened the U.S. up to a variety of third-world diseases. He's released tens of thousands of medically unscreened illegal immigrants into the U.S., supposedly to prepare for their immigration hearings, which 70% never show up for.
The epidemics are small now, but the risk is rising. And with a new wave of illegals in the pipeline, where's the will to stop this?
Until recently the occurrence of EV-D68 was rare in the United States. Between 1970 and 2005 only 26 clinical isolates of EV-D68 were reported in the USA. Over the years, clusters have been reported in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona and various countries.Where's the will to not only stop this but to protect the citizenry? Apparently not in Washington, D.C.
Hundreds of children in Missouri and several other states have already been hospitalized because of Enterovirus EV-D68.
ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser recently pointed out that “Viruses don’t tend to respect borders.”
Undocumented aliens are bringing diseases across the border into America. The Obama administration has relocated illegal immigrant children to all 50 states. Expect more outbreaks as the school year begins.
