Illegal immigration raises disease risks

Full story: Jacksonville Daily News

To the editor: Did you know that hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing our borders without being health-screened have brought us thousands of new cases of leprosy in the years since we opened the southern border? Additionally, they brought tens of thousands of cases of incurable, i.e. multiple-drug resistant, tuberculosis; hundreds ... (more)

Yep. And that new strain of tuberculosis in India that is incurable and killing thousands goes unchecked. Hell, these people could be in a Wal Mart right now in the uSA handling stuff and hacking and coughing all over the place, but who knows who they are?

That to me is the scariest part of all of this illegal immigration crap.
The undocumented have no immunizations to speak of so we are sitting ducks for any new strain of garbage that they want to bring over here with them.

This will be denied with screams from the open border crowd but it is a fact.

The other major risk with these unscreened people are their criminal backgrounds that are unknown.

None of this can be sorted out once they have left their home country because once they are here, if not before, they have changed their identity and we will never know what names they once went by.

That's not quite true. When an illegal is caught they are forced to give their correct name because they need assisstance from their embassy.

So, you still won't know what others names they have used.

Nope, we just need to do it as the laws are written, selectively, with limits for each reason and country. The laws will work if we work the laws.

A letter to the editor of the local paper written by a ranting racist blowhard. I bet he voted for McCain/Palin in the last elections.

And just what is it about his post that is inaccurate, or is name calling and blowing hot air all you're capable of.
Did you click the link to the story and read it?

The author begins his rant with his opinion about illegal immigrants bringing exotic diseases, including head lice, into our nation. He sites a case of sick chickens back in the seventies as proof of the problem. Then he begins to rant about “Obama’s stash” giving us the "Liberal answer" (as if this idiot speaks for liberals) His next line is to scare us about the dangers of children mingling with children. Then he attempts to bring credibility to his opinion by claiming to be a veteran as he drifts into a poorly delivered war story about how he brought an exotic disease back from Vietnam. Finally, he ended his incoherent rant with a meaningless rhyme.

So what was he saying? Should we quarantine all the warriors returning from the Bush wars? Are we to fear contact with a veteran of wars because of the chance he/she might be carrying some exotic disease?

Face it. We live in a global world where people can travel around the globe in less than 24 hours. Get your shots, cover your mouth with your sleeve when you cough, wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, mouth and keep your finger out of your nose and you will be just fine.

That's no reason to allow illegal aliens into the country carrying diseases and sitting next to your children in a classroom.

Well, of course it does! Take any organism, migrate it into a group of similar organisms thousands of miles away and either the migrant or the host populace are much more likely to get sick.

That's how disease works and it's why disease was such an effective population control. If we continue to allow unchecked illegal immigration, it might again become effective.

For those who want to risk serious vaccine injury, offer them free vaccines. But after they become ADHD and autistic, you have just caused another problem. The ADHD and depressed kids will have access to guns and will go on a rampage. The autistic will cost money to be cared for for 60 years or more.

Your last paragraph works for all that have common sense, but what about our little ones at school? They become vulnerable to everything illegals bring with them unwittingly. One little Mexican girl had head lice so bad, somebody at her house shaved her head. That is truly the act of a third world idiot...instead of cleaning the house and getting to the source of the lice, they made that little girl face her schoolmates looking pitiful. Head lice was rampant in her class, however it was she who had them first and never got rid of them. Her siblings infested their classes as well. Their idea of treating lice is to put grease in their hair, and that doesn't work. Then there's ringworm...another sad story.

A lady friend of mine is an administrator at a local hospital and back when we had the swine flu scare she said the hospital was packed with swine flu ridden illegal aliens taking up beds (free of course).

Europeans brought head lice, cholera, small pox, plague and all the sexually transmitted diseases with them when they started colonizing the Americas so if you want to blame a race for kids getting head lice in school...blame your own and leave the native american victims out of it.
