In March of 2013, I wrote about a sudden increase in cases of tuberculosis. By 1987, the number of TB cases in the US had dropped to only 5,000, but by 2000 the number of TB cases began to rapidly increase. The increase is due to a new strain that is fairly resistant to most TB fighting drugs and has a mortality rate close to 60%.
Back then health officials reported one of the key reasons for the rise in cases of the deadly form of TB was due to the massive influx of illegal aliens crossing the US-Mexican border. Even with this information, Barack Obama took no additional measures to secure our southern border and protect Americans from this deadly infection.
In July 2014, I wrote about US Border Patrol agents working along the Mexican border and with illegals coming across the border that are being diagnosed with TB, chicken pox and the H1N1 swine flu. Illegals coming across the border are not only carrying those three diseases, but it was reported that they were also carrying dengue fever which is also known as breakbone fever due to the intense muscle and joint pain that makes people feel like their bones are breaking. Dengue fever also has a hemorrhagic version which has symptoms similar to Ebola.
Even with the news of our Border Patrol agents contracting these potentially lethal diseases, Barack Obama prefers to play golf rather than step up security measures along the border. He chooses to place all of us at risk of catching serious illnesses rather than to enforce our nation’s immigration laws.
Now we have additional evidence that illegal kids crossing the border are carrying the deadly active tuberculosis. The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), ten of the illegal kids have been diagnosed with active tuberculosis.
Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman with ORR told CNSNews:
“The children were isolated and treated; after being rendered non-infectious, all ten were released to verified sponsors in the U.S.”
“The respective local health department connects with the health department in the city in which the child is released through the inter-jurisdictional TB notification system, and our Office of Refugee Resettlement also notifies the state. Then, the local TB control program follows up with the child and family.”
“Our Office of Refugee Resettlement has not had reports of any other diseases requiring isolation. Our Office of Refugee Resettlement follows CDC guidance on these and other matters of public health concern.”
But how many illegal kids crossed into the US undetected and how many of them could be carrying TB, chicken pox, H1N1 or dengue fever? All it would take is for one or two of them to be infected with the drug resistant strain of TB to slip through the hands of border security and make their way into America. Instead of the infamous typhoid Mary, we could end up with just as deadly TB Maria.
And yet, Barack Obama still refuses to enforce our immigration laws and secure our border. His actions amount to outright dereliction of duty and treason. He should be immediately arrested on those charges and removed from office. If the court jester, Joe Biden, does the same thing then he should also be arrested and removed from office. This needs to be done until we get someone in the White House who will enforce the laws of the nation and take proper steps to secure the border and protect our nation.
