This is why a mandatory process is prefered other than the ILLEGAL border crosser declaring their arrival. If nothing else at make sure the diseases run their course before unleashing them on the public.

One of the most under reported ILLEGAL immigration problems is in Florida. Florida along with being a high ILLEGAL immigrant state also has a high AIDs rate. Especially amongst those from the Caribbean. Same for NYC a ILLEGAL or legal immigrant destination. Is it any coincidence that some of the highest disease rates are in cities with high immigrant populations, a large portion of which are undocumented? Undocumented or ILLEGAL usually means they weren't treated, given vaccines or even educated on the dangers of their diseases. That means they are spreaders & carriers of their disease pure and simple




The past & current ILLEGAL policy amounts to reckless endangerment.

You don't have to vaccinate for every thing you let some diseases run their course like chicken pox under medical supervision. Quarantine them until disease free. Treat if you have to. The big thing is make sure those ILLEGAL immigrants have no active diseases and are vaccinated for the debilitating diseases like polio. You make sure those ILLEGAL immigrants have been given showers and baths, have been living in sanitary conditions and given some education on disease and hygiene along with having had their clothes washed and/or given clean clothes.
