Diseases Wiped Out Decades Ago Reappear In US

But it's not just Mexico that is the source of this creeping malaise. Although there is a tendency to focus on Mexican immigration into the US, we do a disservice to our nation's security to ignore equally troublesome immigration from Central American countries, which face many of the dangerous health problems our southern neighbor faces.

“And the threat is increasing, not shrinking, because the cross-border traffic is coming from places beyond Mexico and Central America. In 2014, for the first time in more than 20 years, over 50% of the illegal aliens crossing our 1,940-mile southwest border came from countries other than Mexico–and total cross-border traffic is expanding as well. Over 485,000 people were apprehended in 2014, and if you use the government’s ‘Gotaway Ratio' of 1.5 successful evasions of the Border Patrol for every single apprehension, the number of illegal entries by foreign nationals in 2015 was over 700,000.

What do we know about the diseases carried by illegal aliens? Not much thanks to government secrecy, but we know enough to be worried.

A February 2015 report of the Southern Medical Association cautioned that, since none of the 700,000 illegal entries have been screened for infectious diseases, ‘Illegal immigration may expose Americans to diseases that have been virtually eradicated but are highly contagious, as in the case of TB.' The association concluded that despite the efforts of the CDC, ‘There’s a growing health concern over illegal immigrants bringing infectious diseases into the United States.'

A year ago, the head of the Texas state medical association called for a quarantine of children arriving at the border from Central America. Instead, the Obama administration ordered the processing of the children to be expedited.

It has long been established that sanitation and health conditions in migrant farm worker camps from California to North Carolina do not meet acceptable standards– and those are camps for legal migrant workers allowed into the country as part of the H2(A) program for seasonal guest workers. In truth, illegal workers are mixed with legal ones in most farm labor camps provided by employers, and that co-mingling helps spread infectious diseases.”
