The Texas Department of State Health Services says 186 people, including immigrants and detention center employees, were confirmed with cases of mumps just since October.
Guaranteed that the left will blame this on the detention center and not the people living in it infected with mumps.
I don’t know why unvaccinated people are allowed to work in any kind of detention center or why the government allows it?

Nearly 200 people have contracted mumps at detention facilities across Texas since October, according to a state health agency.
The Texas Department of State Health Services says 186 people, including immigrants and detention facility employees, had confirmed cases of mumps.
Lara Anton, a spokeswoman for the Department of State Health Services, said in an email that patients range in age from 13-66 and that “there has been no reported transmission to the community.”
She added that the state doesn’t know the vaccination status of detained migrant adults or the children who entered the U.S. with them but that “all unaccompanied minors are vaccinated when they are detained.”
There were 191 cases of mumps reported in Texas in 2016, the most cases in 22 years. But due to high vaccination rates in the state, the incidence of mumps is generally low here, according to the Department of State Health Services’ website. Among Texas children, 90.3 percent were vaccinated for mumps in 2017, according to the National Immunization Survey.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends children get two doses of the mumps vaccine before they’re 6 years old. The agency also encourages teens and adults to be up to date on their mumps vaccinations. The vaccine has an 88 percent effective rate when people have the recommended two doses. More
Mumps, measles, resistant TB, and whooping cough are all “mysteriously” on the rise nationwide. These illegal immigrants are bringing all kinds of diseases to the US and Democrats just want to let them in. No thanks.
Of greater concern than Mumps are all the mosquito-borne tropical diseases, Yellow Fever, Malaria, Zika, and uncounted others that North Americans are entirely unprepared for.
