Feds: Nearly 900 Migrants with Mumps Disease Arrived in U.S. Last Year
Breitbart ^ | 8 Sep 2019 | JOHN BINDER

Posted on 09/09/2019 7:49:23 AM PDT by Mr. Mojo

Since September 2018, nearly 900 migrants arriving at the United States-Mexico border have been confirmed or suspected to have mumps, a federal report reveals.

A report by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) details how the contagious mumps disease has spread across 19 states in 57 detention facilities among migrants — those illegally crossing the southern border and those seeking asylum.

Between September 2018 and August 2019, about 898 cases of migrants who had arrived to the U.S. and were in federal detention were reported to have mumps. Another 33 cases of mumps were reported among staff members at the various detention facilities.

Roughly 44 percent of the cases reported occurred in detention facilities located in Texas while the average age of a migrant with mumps was 25 years-old and 94 percent were male migrants.

CDC officials state that the disease has largely spread to other migrants while in detention with 84 percent of cases reported having been likely contracted while in federal custody and five percent having been likely contracted before the migrant was apprehended by federal officials.

And why are we detaining them? It is the JOB of the Secretary of Health and Human Services to DENY entry to people with infectious diseases.

Instead they take up beds and now we have to do catch and release. Seems malicious to me.

But the blame is laid at the feet of anti-vaccers. Imagine that.

They need the disease to become more prevalent so they can push the vaccine.

Vaccines are the only business where one gets:

- Guaranteed Sales, paid for with tax dollars.

AND

- Total immunity from civil tort liability (a benefit enjoyed by NO OTHER American business by the way....if the vaccines are so damned safe why did they lobby for this?)

Back to the "fundamentals". eh? Such as those fundamentals required to win in football?

In the world you and I would construct, if one did not have a U.S. "entry pass" obtained at a border location, one would be immediately returned to the other side of the border. If one lost the job on which the pass was based and wasn't returned by the employer, or otherwise had no means of support. they would be immediately returned to the border. There would be no provision for the children or non-working relatives of those present on a work visa.

Commerce(organized business) would have a greater interest in the quality of our school systems and it would grow without the need to dilute the quality of our society.

Perhaps we are just too old-fashioned (or too conservative?).

Rat encouragement of importing infectious diseases is another weapon for President Trump to disembowel the rat candidate next year.
