10 future 'Dreamers' diagnosed with Tuberculosis

As if Enterovirus D68 isn't enough? And we know how seriously they've taken that containment...please.
CNSNews: From January through September, 10 of the unaccompanied minors detained while attempting to illegally enter the United States across the Mexican border were diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB), according to the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

The children were ultimately allowed to stay in the United States.

"The children were isolated and treated; after being rendered non-infectious, all ten were released to verified sponsors in the U.S.," said ORR spokesman Kenneth Wolfe in an emailed response when CNSNews.com asked if any - and if so, how many - of the unaccompanied minors were tested for TB or enterovirus 68. ...

Unaccompanied minors are given medical screenings when they arrive at U.S. border stations, and if necessary medical treatment, according to Wolfe. ...

Once they are in the HHS' Unaccompanied Alien Children program, they receive a well-child exam, "all needed childhood vaccinations to protect against communicable diseases" - including TB - and a mental health exam.

"If it is determined that children have certain communicable diseases or have been exposed to such communicable diseases, they are placed in a program or facility that has the capacity to quarantine," he said. "Children with serious health conditions are treated at local hospitals. The cost of this care is fully paid by the federal government."

According to the Customs and Border Patrol, 68,541 unaccompanied children were apprehended on the Southwest border in Fiscal Year 2014 - from Oct. 1, 2013 to Sept. 30, 2014.
All on the taxpayers' dime, of course...who, by the way, didn't ask for this invasion in the first place. On the contrary, we'd like our borders secured like every other country in the world.
