According to The Washington Post,
The measles outbreak spread to three more states and Washington D.C. last week, affecting 19 additional people, according to an update posted Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The highly contagious disease is now in 18 jurisdictions, with 121 people affected. The vast majority of the cases are part of the large outbreak that began in Southern California Disney theme parks in late December, the health agency said.
The total is on pace to easily surpass the 644 cases in the United States in 2014, the greatest number since measles was declared eliminated in the United States in 2000. Last week, the CDC reported 102 cases in 14 states.
Authorities have said the resurgence is mostly caused by the growing number of people who are declining to vaccinate their children for personal reasons, or delaying the vaccinations.
“This is a teachable moment for this country,” former U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman said at a conference Monday at Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health. “When we see a disease that was almost eliminated in the early 1980s now come back with a jolt all around this country, we have to ask ourselves what’s going on.
“Not even vaccines are immune to politics … I’ve seen politics threaten vaccination efforts time and time again,” he added.
According to the CDC, measles spread to Nevada (2 cases) as well as Delware, New Jersey and the District of Columbia (1 case each), as it continued to plague California, which has 88 cases. Arizona has the second-largest case total with 7.
Public health authorities have begun campaigning about the importance of vaccinating children against measles. President Obama, Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy and Baltimore Public Health Commissioner Leana S. Wen, as well as the CDC and other public health organizations have called on parents to vaccinate children.
What if these “public health authorities” are blaming the wrong parents…of the wrong children? And, the actual culprits are not even American?
Back on July 3rd of 2014, during the heart of the Mexican Munchkin Migration, I reported the following,
KGTV, the ABC affiliate in San Diego, CA reports that
A Border Patrol agents union representative told 10News the influx of undocumented immigrants now in Border Patrol custody is threatening the health of agents as well as national security.
“We have compassion for them …,” said union representative Ron Zermeno.
At about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday, one of the buses pulled out of the checkpoint and onto a freeway. Two people sitting behind the driver appeared to be Border Patrol agents wearing masks. 10News could not confirm if any children were on the bus. As 10News was trying to follow the bus onto a freeway, Border Patrol SUVs blocked the entrance to the freeway.
Zermeno told 10News Wednesday morning that 99 migrants were transported to various San Diego Sector Border Patrol stations for processing. According to Zermeno, 40 had been taken to Brown Field Station in Otay Mesa. Forty-two were taken to the Imperial Beach Station, and 17 to the Boulevard Station in southeast San Diego County.
Zermeno said Border Patrol agents were being pulled off the line to help with processing the immigrants. Zermeno told 10News this could pose a safety issue due to less agents on the street.
Meanwhile, 40 were being quarantined at the Border Patrol Chula Vista Station with active scabies and head lice. The facility will provide them with showers, laundry service and bedding. Another 10 people, mostly children, were taken to local hospitals with unknown illnesses.
“That’s my biggest fear: their health and also safety in the field,” said Zermeno.
Zermeno told 10News pulling agents could put national security on the line, adding, “The morale is the lowest I’ve ever seen it.”
Zermeno said he just wants to protect his agents and the border, as well as expose the truth because exposure seems to be a growing concern.
“I think the public needs to be aware. The average citizens [are not] aware because they could be exposed tomorrow.
At the time, I quipped.
That’s just great. Now, we have an INFECTIOUS Illegal Alien Invasion.
So, how did they get become infectious in the first place and what diseases could these “uninvited guests” have brought with them?
According to the Oxford Journals,
Risk factors for these infections include limited access to safe food and water, overcrowding, poor nutrition, and exposure to insect vectors. The infections noted in immigrants from Latin America partly reflect these exposures. For example, fecal contamination is common and results in an increased risk for enteric infections. Animal husbandry practices are less safe in Latin America than in the United States, and meat products are often sold informally without screening for parasites having been done. Milk products may not be pasteurized. Overcrowding and poor nutrition may amplify transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other respiratory pathogens. These exposures may continue after immigration to the United States.
A number of diseases that are common in Latin America are rarely diagnosed in the United States. Diarrhea due to toxigenic Escherichia coli is common among residents of and travelers to Latin America. However, toxigenic E. coli diarrhea is rarely recognized in immigrants because of the short incubation period and the limited duration of the illness. Chagas’ disease is rarely diagnosed in immigrants. This may reflect the low prevalence of Chagas’ disease in Mexico, the birthplace of most immigrants to the United States. Confusion of Chagas’ disease with other causes of heart disease is a problem. It is also possible that, because of the long period when individuals with Chagas’ disease are asymptomatic, the number of cases diagnosed may increase with time. Hansen’s disease (formerly known as leprosy) is endemic in Latin America. Although it has a characteristic presentation (hypoesthesia and skin lesions), its incidence is very low in Mexico and Central America, and the disease is uncommon in Latin American immigrants.
So, why was Obama so secretive concerning the care and treatment of all of these illegal aliens whom he relocated to military bases across America in advance of being disseminated throughout the country?
Could it be because he knew that Americans would be even more upset about the chaos brought about by tens of thousands of unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors, if we knew the actual extent of infectious diseases among this “Mexican Munchkin Migration”?
Well, that would explain why, all of the sudden, the focus on school children, whose American Parents chose not to have them vaccinated, for fear of dangerous side effects, such as autism.
Can you say “SQUIRREL!!!”?
