Illegal immigration raises disease risks

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) Full Story

The chagas parasite is of real concern., especially after an illegal was caught defecating in a nearby reservoir. Hopefully it was an isolated incident but we have to assume that other farm workers were doing the same.

I worked within the Agricultural industy in the Salinas Valley of CA. for many years. I witnessed the mexican labor crews pissing and crapping anywhere and everywhere, even on the produce they were harvesting, even in full view of the women working on the harvesting crews, even though there was a clean portable toilet with hand washing facilities and soap available on each portable toilet unit that were only 50 yards away from their work site.

Well, that's the way do it in Mexico, anywhere and everywhere. They are absolutely ignorant when it comes to practicing Personal Hygiene.

<quoted text> Interesting, thank you for the information. So all this is expected of Americans to live over there and yet you hear nothing but griping and whining from Calderon himself asking for better treatment of his people over here. If he really gave a damn he'd make sure they would have NO REASON TO COME OVER HERE looking for work and would make sure the cartels' violence got wiped out FOR GOOD. I also have heard how badly illegal immigrants from central America get BADLY TREATED. And these illegals complain because we want to implement new laws AND ENFORCE THEM!!! what a laugh. Oh I understand Americans living in Mexico cannot express their political opinions or adress any government issues or they'll throw you in prison. You have NO RIGHTS over there, so what are you doing over there if I may ask?
The Mexican government will give people a choice to serve their jail sentence in a Mexican jail or cross the border for the duration of the sentence.......

And yes Mexico will complain as they know the moronic liberals in the US will just give more and more......

Look at the Mexican trucks that are allowed into the USA but Mexico only allows USA trucks in the border zone.....

And the world laughs at the moronic liberals and the USA

Wrong, Leprosy is contagious. It was wiped out in America but illegal alien scum have brought it back into this country and you and I are paying to treat them.

While grandmothers, babies,children and cancer stricken survivers are degraded and humilated at the airport by Tsa in the name of security,illegal aliens are being given the rights we have fought and died for that are now being denied to us. They are bankrupting hospitals,schools and running up the cost of prisons. Now they are bringing in leprosy,polio,TB, parasites,aids and a host of other 3rd world countries diseases.I firmly beleive Americans will see a pandemic arising from illegal aliens coming into our country.Its right around the corner.

Yeah! One that the Native Peoples of the Americas are immune to but the European invaders have no immunities to. That would be a good one!

Illegal immigrants aren't the only issue and source of our problems. Think about all of the people who've adopted children from overseas for decades. Many of those babies are born with hepatitis and are brought into the U.S every year. My mother was a caretaker for a doctor who adopted several Korean children. All of them carried hepatitis. The doctor told my mother she would be ok, as long as she kept a bottle of bleach and water handy. Although the children were carriers, they didn't get sick, but could pass it on to others that weren't infected - like my mother. It can be passed through blood or possibly other bodily fluids. Kids often get scrapes and cuts, so my mother was always cautious. Still, it was a risky job.

Nothng new there, illegals bring in all sorts of diseases whereas a legal immigrant is screened for these.
Just another negative thing illegals bring in, TB, Typus, Whooping Cough, and so on.

This was back when very little was know about desease and deasease control. These illegals come here knowingly being ill and could care less about spreading.

Just like the USA did to natives with infected blankets Mexico is doing to the USA with their unwanted

And liberals feel all warm and bubbly about feeding and clothing these criminals

The hospital beds are full of disease ridden illegal aliens. Do you want to put your kids at risk as well as pay the costs of treating these infected illegal aliens?

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.


So you support illegal aliens carrying diseases into the country?

Migrating peoples throughout history have carried disease and parasites with them. This is historical fact. I see no reason why tens of millions of third world illegals would be any different.

You have to add in the fact that the unwanted and many prisoners are shipped by bus to the border and told to cross and never return.....
