Dengue Fever is a very serious problem and none of this should be taken lightly. If this comes across the border, El Paso will have a bomb going off inside its borders.

This why having control of our border is so critical! Knowing who is coming over or better yet what they are bringing is very important and the far left is plane wrong when they say it realy don't matter

Hell yes we need to stop those mosquitoes TONIGHT! Yes people who are carriers can carry a reservoir across. But some people who are infected do yet display the symptoms. And I am serious about the mosquitoes. Stop all the people you want but those critters are going to fly over anyway.

Dengue Fever AKA "Breakbone Fever". Doesn't break bones, just feels like it. Usually not fatal but there is a strain with higher fatalities. There is an outbreak in the Caribbean of that strain at the moment - with fatalities..

This is just further proof that we have to ban airlines. It leads to people getting addicted to travel which causes viral epidemics. We need to demand the formation of the AEA (airline enforcement agency). WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN.
