This is what the open border supporters want to let in.
Via Washington Times:
Democrats like to swoon over the sad plights of the suffering masses making their way to America’s border right now, saying the poor people of points south are simply trying to do right by their families: find suitable jobs and safe homes and so on.
That’s easy to do from the safe distance of Washington, D.C., and that leaves them blind — not to mention immune — to the diseases of these migrants, to the health problems of these wanna-be immigrants.
Of 6,000 currently sleeping in the city of Tijuana, a third are reportedly being treated for various medical issues. And not just coughs due to the common cold.
As Fox News reported, according to Tijuana’s Health Department, these medical issues include tuberculosis, HIV and AIDS, chickenpox, lice and skin infections, Hepatitis — and who knows what else.
It’s the whispered dark side of unchecked borders. The Democrats don’t want to discuss this, but open borders don’t just bring in unknown national security risks. They bring germs and diseases and health conditions that can infect and afflict the citizenry.
Look at these headlines.
“CDC warns of new tick species capable of spreading diseases to humans,” The Hill newspaper wrote, just this week, about a new report that finds “the Asian longhorned tick, an arachnid native to Korea and other parts of east Asia, has been found in several states in the eastern and southeastern parts of the United States.”
New Jersey reported the first sighting of the tick last year. It’s since spread to eight states.
How’d it get here? Somehow, somewhere, it crossed the border.
“CDC identifies 31 states with 116 confirmed cases of polio-like disease,” Fox2Now.com reported.
The story went on to report “most of the children with confirmed cases experienced a viral illness with symptoms including fever and cough about three to 10 days before the onset of paralysis.”
Where’s it coming from?
Nobody knows, nobody says. It’s impolite to suggest immigrants could be the carriers — but since nobody knows, factually speaking, that makes it a possibility. And that possibility makes the need for border controls all the more necessary.
“There have now been 106 confirmed cases of [acute flaccid myelitis] in 29 states this year,” WHNT.com reported, just a this week. “[That’s] an increase of 16 since last week. Three cases of AFM have been confirmed in Alabama. … Since 2014, there have been 430 confirmed cases of the rare disease, and 90% have been children, according to the CDC.”
Open-border advocates like to scoff at the idea of tightening borders based on medical necessities.
