Three months ago, people like Dr. Jane Orient, myself and anonymous Border Patrol agents began to call for quarantine, for the purpose of health screening all immigrants. Many people laughed and said there was no real threat. The invasion of our country, the very invasion that people said was not real, has just endangered the entire country. We are sitting on the beginning of a series of pandemic outbreaks.
Prominent Health Officials Have Called for Quarantining All Illegal Immigrants for Health Reasons
In June, one of Arizona’s most prominent physicians, Dr. Jane Orient, called for proper health screening as she thought the unbridled and unconditioned entry of illegal immigrants into the country was problematic.
Dr. Austin King, head of the Texas Medical Association, is now calling out Texas Governor Rick Perry and President Barrack Obama to allow doctors to screen all of the unaccompanied children who have been coming across the border from Honduras and El Salvador. The President has remained silent with regard to the request.
Dr. King expressed the view that in order for more doctors to go down to the border, emergency funding would likely need to be approved, and ICE would have to change some policies in order to allow everyone coming across to be screened.
Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, a prominent preventive medicine physician, who previously served as the former Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, stated that “Legal immigrants are required to pay for medical exams and screening tests conducted by approved physicians before they arrive here. They’re not arriving in the U.S. carrying diseases, and then being dispersed into cities across the nation.” The CDC acknowledges this very fact on their website. Vliet further stated that the CDC’s own guidelines are clearly being violated with regards to the illegal immigrants currently crossing the border.
Back in July of 2014, I was told by two confidential Border Patrol informants that some of their agents were coming down with immigrant-related diseases such as drug resistant TB and scabies and that they had resorted to laundering their clothes at their work site so they did not carry the illnesses home to their families. Now we have official confirmation as it has been announced that Border Patrol agents and other Department of Homeland Security (DHS) staff have contracted diseases from infected migrants, some of whom are unaccompanied children (UAC).
The government, through a DHS report, finally admitted that, “Many UAC and family units require treatment for communicable diseases, including respiratory illnesses, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and scabies. DHS employees reported exposure to communicable diseases and becoming sick on duty. … Two CBP Officers reported that their children were diagnosed with chicken pox within days of the CBP Officers’ contact with a UAC who had chicken pox.”
Our Children Are At Risk
In one of the articles that I wrote at the height of the illegal immigration crisis, I stated that within a few months, these illegal immigrant children would be sitting in classrooms next to American children and could possibly expose our children to illnesses for which Americans have no immunity. Well, that day has arrived.
A new and unidentified respiratory illness has come to Missouri and it is sickening hundreds of kids, and it’s causing trouble throughout the entire state.
At St. Louis, Children’s Mercy Hospital has seen more than 300 cases of enterovirus 68 since mid-August. A doctor there says it is. The children have difficulty breathing. Ten to 15 percent of the children are needing intensive care.
St. Louis Children’s Hospital reports that it has seen more than a 100 children with similar symptoms in the past week. St. Louis Children’s hospital, just like Children’s Mercy, is full and is not able to admit anymore patients.
Despite the emerging pandemic, Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, an infectious disease specialist at Children’s Mercy, said samples it sent to the CDC were almost all enterovirus 68, but the CDC refuses implicate the virus as a cause for this latest outbreak. Of course, we would not want to implicate the CDC for turning a blind eye to this emerging crisis. Despite the fact that all of the samples sent to the CDC tested positive for enterovirus 68, the CDC says there is insufficient statistical data to draw any conclusion.
Dr. Jackson says good hand washing, covering your cough and not sending your child to school if he or she appears sick can help control the spread. In other words, there’s no anti-viral medicine for enterovirus 68 and no vaccine. Subsequently, washing their hands is your children’s only defense.
Mysterious Illness Sweeping Through Border Towns
Officials from the CDC have confirmed that they are investigating a mystery illness that has been rapidly emerging in towns and military bases housing these undocumented immigrants. The CDC has outbreak specialists in place who are currently attempting to identify whether the causative agent is bacterial or viral. These illnesses are appearing in communities near where the government housed scores of illegal immigrants in detention centers.
As I predicted late last spring, these outbreaks are among the first of a long line outbreaks we were going to see as a result of unscreened illegal aliens.
In a 1966 article in Nation, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, sociology professors at Columbia University, wrote that capitalism should be collapsed by overloading the government with financial demands that could not be met. Clearly, Obama is working off of the playbook of Cloward and Piven.
The strategy is to collapse the financial system. The tactic is chaos. If a crisis does not exist, create one. The more chaos the better. The solution is always couched in empathetic words like “fair,” “equal,” “humane,” and “just.”
We know that the government refused admittance to Ft. Sill in Oklahoma to Oklahoma congressman, Jim Bridenstine so he could not see for himself what was going in these facilities housing illegal immigrants. What are they hiding?
In light of these revelations, members of the media may lament that we’d be far better off if the government worked as hard to stop the spread of disease as it does to stop the spread of information.
