N.B. This is a corrected text. The original text said the drug resistant TB first showed up in California. That is not the case. The first case was found in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. I apologize for this error.
This is scary and enough reason to fight amnesty.
Illegal alien “rights” groups are pushing to change federal law to insure illegal aliens won’t have to wait the required five years to become eligible for Medicaid.
While neither the House nor Senate’s new healthcare bills have this provision; that could change if some Democrat actually reads these bills.
Should we ever lose control of our borders, here’s a sample of the diseases aliens, especially illegal aliens, are bringing us already.
The scariest disease is a new drug resistant strain of Tuberculosis from South America.
Last month a legal immigrant from Peru showed up at a Florida emergency room coughing up blood. To their great shock the doctors diagnosed his illness as the extremely drug-resistant XXDR type of Tuberculosis which had previously never been seen in our country. “He is really the future,” one doctor soberly observed.
TB is highly contagious and is spread by sneezing and coughing sufferers. The Center for Disease Control reports 1% of illegal aliens have TB; and in just fifteen minutes a TB suffer will infect half of those nearby. Think of that when you read about illegals working in our food processing plants.
For the first time ever we’re seeing Chagas another South American disease that attacks the heart and stops it cold.
Just as alarmingly for the first time in forty years our hospitals are treating cases of Leprosy, a horrible killer disease that breaks down the sufferer’s flesh and causes it to literally fall away from his/her body.
The list continues
Maleria which we beat in the 1940’s is now present in California New Jersey and New York City. Dengue fever a deadly sickness from Asia has appeared among us and so has Hepatitis A-E which is costing us $billions each year.
We can’t let the Democrats and their few Republican stogies pass any kind of amnesty. We have many battles to fight and the truth of our situation is that we have to win all of them to keep our America great and free. This is one we can’t overlook, and certainly can’t lose.
What did you do to defend American freedoms yesterday; what will you do today?
Yesterday’s Rasmussen Presidential Index had Obama at – 15
This day in history January 5:
