TB cases are becoming more and more common in the United States thanks to the open borders policies of the Obama administration.
The US border is so porous that unaccompanied children can find their way into the US.
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement whistleblower, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to Infowars, asserted the recent surge of illegal immigrants is also bringing with it tuberculosis and other communicable diseases, confirming reports deadly, infectious illness is penetrating the US-Mexico border.
“We do get our isolated cases of people with tuberculosis,” the agent exclusively told Infowars. “There may be a couple that come through that admit to having a communicable disease, but really we don’t check for communicable diseases, that’s not part of the screening process. Unless they tell us they’re sick, we have facilities for that.”
Prior to that, the ICE agent, who works at a detention facility in South Texas, also described the process of screening detainees.
“Whoever is detained goes through a lengthy screening process, chest x-rays, check for tuberculosis, things of that nature, and they’re treated.
“Let’s say for example, a person with tuberculosis will not be released until you either: A. the treatment is completed or B. they can get together with the country that they’re from and see if they can get medical treatment continued there.”
Besides the erosion of the nation’s borders and the obvious political implications of allowing such a massive influx of immigrants, many fear the surge of illegals represents a red-level health emergency to Americans, yet no action has been taken by the Obama administration to stymie it.
“A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming,” reports Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet. “Hardest hit by exposures to these difficult-to-treat diseases will be elderly, children, immunosuppressed cancer-patients, patients with chronic lung disease or congestive heart failure. Drug-resistant tuberculosis is the most serious risk, but even diseases like measles can cause severe complications and death in older or immunocompromised patients.”
“TB is highly contagious,” Dr. Vliet continues, “you catch it anywhere around infected people: schools, malls, buses, etc. The drug-resistant TB now coming across our borders requires a complex, extremely expensive treatment regimen that has serious side effects and a low cure rate.”
Meanwhile, Obama continues to stockpile new Democrat voters.
