A brave news report by Phoenix station ABC-15 says that the Obama administration is dumping contagious disease carrying illegal aliens all across the country.
Reporter Navideh Forghani reported on Friday from the border town McAllen, Texas that illegal aliens are being found with scabies, chicken pox, MRSA, and other contagious viruses. All that separates the quarantined in border detention centers from the seemingly healthy is a swatch of yellow plastic tape according to Forghani. After processing by ICE , illegal aliens are being dumped by the Obama administration on states across the country, but mainly Arizona.
The flood of contagious illegal aliens has Border Patrol agents sounding the alarm:
“U.S. Border Patrol agents are worried that what’s coming over into the U.S. could harm everyone.
“This time the focus is not on the women and children that are crossing over in droves.
“Agents are worrying about a viral outbreak.
““We are sending people everywhere. The average person doesn’t know what’s going on down here,” said Border Patrol agent and Rio Grande Valley Union representative Chris Cabrera.
“Cabrera says agents are seeing illegal immigrants come over with contagious infections.
“Detention centers and holding facilities have quarantined areas for those who come in sick. But Cabrera says the sick and healthy are separated only by caution tape.
“There’s been an outbreak of scabies that’s been going on for the past month,” Cabrera said.
“Texas border resident Jorge Garcia says word about the contagious skin infection is getting around.
““Our Border Patrol agents check on us all the time and they told us about the outbreak of scabies,” Garcia said.
“Cabrera says the sickness doesn’t stop at scabies.
“We are starting to see chicken pox, MRSA staph infections, we are starting to see different viruses,” Cabrera said.
“Garcia believes the viruses are not confined to the detention center. Not long ago, a group of border-crossers came knocking on his door.
““It was a 7-month-old baby. It was shaking, it had a fever,” Garcia said.
“The Department of Homeland Security called in Coast Guard medics to help treat those who are sick. But Cabrera doesn’t believe the federal government is doing enough. He says other Border Patrol agents have contracted scabies and he fears it will spread quickly.
““It’s contagious, we are transporting people to different parts of the state and different parts of the country,” Cabrera said.”
The Department of Homeland Security issued a statement to Forghani that begins:
“DHS has public health controls in place to minimize any possible health risks. Throughout the RGV Sector we are conducting public health screens on all incoming detainees to screen for any symptoms of contagious diseases of possible public health concern. U.S. Border Patrol has established Medical Units at its busiest border stations (McAllen, Weslaco, and Ft Brown) handling UAC. US Coast Guard medical teams are assisting with the screening process, and providing healthcare evaluations for the sick and injured…”
Breitbart reported Saturday that over 600 illegal alien children are being sent this weekend from Texas to Fort Sill, Oklahoma in a move Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) says threatens national security.
