According to reports, more and more border patrol agents and their fellows in immigration are contracting diseases like mumps and measles because of coming into contact with the avalanche of illegals trying to break our laws and sneak into the U.S.A.
These often filthy, starving, and lice-infested illegals are bringing in pestilence and diseases that are generally non-existent among real Americans.
More and more agents are forced to sick leave because they are contracting measles, mumps, chickenpox, and tuberculosis from the people they are trying to stop from entering the U.S.
According to Adan Salazar:
Carlos Favela, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1929, says the number of agents affected by illnesses has reached alarming levels in recent years, with an estimated 20 to 25 agents from the El Paso sector calling in sick each day, while others come in to work sick because they’ve used up their sick days.
“I believe this is probably the record, you know, Border Patrol-wide, since ever, of agents calling in sick,” Favela told ABC-7.
Think about this… Democrats are forcing mounting disease on our country.
After all, it isn’t just border agents being subject to disease. Once these illegals get into the country, they are exposing you and your children to these diseases, America.
Monica Showalter puts it well:
So much for the Democrats’ supposed concern for the working man. So much for Democrats’ ‘narrative’ about being the party of OSHA, living wages, and humane working conditions, something the supposedly mean Republicans are supposedly all against. Where’s their concern for the unprotected Border Patrol agents subject to infectious diseases from unvetted migrants? Democrat can’t even be bothered to issue hazmat suits to these affected Border Patrol agents, which is what this situation would call for were this any private-sector establishment they seek to regulate. And it’s certainly something they insist on for EPA workers at toxic dump sites, or NASA workers in space industries. Border Patrol guys, though, get nothing in the way of protection. These Democrats can’t even get a bill together to fund actual medical establishments for these hundreds of thousands of illegals they’re inviting in, or better yet, a law that illegals certify themselves as disease-free at their own expense before they are allowed to cross illegally. The only thing that matters to Democrats is that the illegals get in, and what happens happens.
Oh, I am sure that every last Democrat would say that the border agents somehow “deserve” to get diseases because they so hate our immigration laws and those who enforce them.
But, what dummy Democrats aren’t bothering to grasp is that if the border agents are getting sick from exposure to this sea of illegals, the rest of us are too!
