Border Patrol Union VP claims some illegal immigrants are carrying diseases “we haven’t seen in decades”
There is a reason why the Obama regime has threatened people with arrest if they continue to talk about the infectious diseases some of the illegal immigrants in the recent surge are carrying, and there is a reason why the regime is also ordering Border Patrol to stop talking to the media, and that reason is easy to define: the problem is much, much worse than the president would like to admit and it is much worse than he wants the American people to know.
Border Patrol agents now face a new threat in addition to placing their lives in danger protecting the border and that threat is disease; we have already heard cases where agents have come down with scabies and head lice but now it is being claimed by the Vice President of the Border Patrol Union, Chris Cabrea, that the agents are now seeing diseases which have not been seen in the United States in decades.
“Coming off the long journey they have been subjected to and then diseases some agents are contracting. We had one get bacterial pneumonia a couple days ago,” Cabrea said. “A lot of our guys are coming down with scabies or lice.”
Cabrea added: “The border patrol is trying to play catch up and we’re having a lot of diseases coming in and some we haven’t seen in decades and we are worried they’ll spread throughout the United States especially if they are being released and have the disease.”
And he is right to be concerned, not just about the health and welfare of those whom he represents, but also of the health and welfare of the American people in general.
These illegal immigrants are being flown all across the nation and in many cases they are being released into the communities where they can spread diseases which for all intents and purposes had been previously eradicated in the United States up until the date they are required to show up in court–if they show up at all, and most of them probably will not.
This is even more troubling when you take into account the fact that the TSA was allowing illegal immigrants to fly without any identification. While I would like to believe that illegal immigrants who test positive for diseases would not be allowed to fly to a location and be released into the public I simply do not believe the Federal government is competent, or willing, enough to ensure this is not happening. Do you?
