“A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming. Hardest hit by exposures to these difficult-to-treat diseases will be elderly, children, immunosuppressed cancer-patients, patients with chronic lung disease or congestive heart failure.“
A flood of illegals has massively surged at our southwestern borders. The economic impact of medical care, education, and incarceration for illegals forced on taxpayers is bankrupting Arizona.
Why are such swarms entering the U.S. illegally NOW, particularly children? Newspapers in Mexico and Central and South America are actually describing U.S. “open borders,” encouraging people to come with promises of food stamps or “amnesty.” It is textbook Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm and collapse the economic and social systems, in order to replace them with a “new socialist order” under federal control.
Carried by this tsunami of illegals are the invisible “travelers” our politicians don’t like to mention: diseases the U.S. had controlled or virtually eradicated: tuberculosis (TB), Chagas disease, dengue fever, hepatitis, malaria, measles, plus more. I have been working on medical projects in Central and South America since 2009, so I am aware of problems these countries face from such diseases.
A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming. Hardest hit by exposures to these difficult-to-treat diseases will be elderly, children, immunosuppressed cancer-patients, patients with chronic lung disease or congestive heart failure. Drug-resistant tuberculosis is the most serious risk, but even diseases like measles can cause severe complications and death in older or immunocompromised patients.
TB is highly contagious—you catch it anywhere around infected people: schools, malls, buses, etc. The drug-resistant TB now coming across our borders requires a complex, extremely expensive treatment regimen that has serious side effects and a low cure rate.
Chagas (“kissing bug”) disease, caused by the parasiteTrypanosoma cruzi is carried by the triatomine bug that transmits disease to humans. Although “kissing bugs” are already here, they are not as widespread as in Latin America. Right now, Chagas disease is uncommon in the U.S., so many doctors do not think to check for it.
Chagas causes debilitating fatigue, headaches, body aches, nausea/vomiting, liver and spleen enlargement, swollen glands, loss of appetite. When Chagas reaches the chronic phase, medications will not cure it. It can kill by arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, or sudden cardiac arrest.
Vaccine-preventable diseases like chicken pox, measles, and whooping cough spread like wildfire among unvaccinated children. Other illnesses, along with scabies and head lice, also thrive as children are transported by bus and herded into crowded shelters—courtesy of the federal government. Treatment costs are borne by taxpayers.
Our public health departments complain of being overtaxed by a dozen cases of measles or whooping cough. How will they cope withthousands of patients with many different, and uncommon, diseases? Americans, especially Medicaid patients, will see major delays for treatment.
Delays to see doctors at Phoenix VA hospital cost the lives of 58 Veterans while waiting for care. This is just a portent of far more deaths to come from delays for Americans’ medical care as thousands of sick illegals swamp already overcrowded emergency rooms. How will these facilities stay open at all under the financial burden of this huge unfunded federal mandate to provide “free” treatment?
People express concern about child endangerment from illegal minors dumped on Arizona streets in hundred-plus degree heat, with no support. A bigger concern is American endangerment from life-threatening diseases added to social and economic collapse from costs of treating hundreds of thousands of illegals.
There are many unanswered questions about this invasion of illegals with unaccompanied children used as weapons in a political agenda to destabilize our country:
- Who is paying for so many impoverished people and young children to get to the U.S. border from Central and South America?
- Why is our government preventing Border Patrol agents from speaking out?
- Why is our government not enforcing our immigration laws as other countries do?
- Why are federal officials transporting illegal immigrants detained in Texas more than 1,000 miles to Arizona?
Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime. All taxpayers—and allpatients—are its victims. Diseases don’t stop at borders. Diseases don’t discriminate based on political affiliation.
Today it is Arizona and Texas being flooded with illegals. Tomorrow it will be your state, your medical care, your health, your life—and your children. Demand that Congress stop this flagrant lawlessness at our borders.

You have to give the corporate pukes credit, they are smart! They know exactly what it takes to make the people to keep their mouth shut and put their own children at risk, devastate the medical economy, and raise a bunch of ignorant government supporting new voters. Every red blooded man in America with children should be patrolling the borders with no intention of letting anyone pass them bye. Nothing would be impossible if the politicians were held responsible for this assault on our country. Make them feel like they are at risk every time they leave home and see what happens. Why don’t the people understand that America is under attack from within? The citizens are brain dead from a life time of propaganda, and the government is raping, killing, and stealing with impunity.
In The Age of Information. . .
IGNORANCE IS A CHOICE!
FACT: The DHS is not a “business” and it makes no “profit”.
FACT: The DHS is a government Congressional-created bureaucracy….who is using OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY to do things to Americans that are breaking the law.
Blame…your Congress critters…and give them a “hot foot” until they start to squeal about what is going on in Washington, DC.
FACT: For those who are “pro-Illegal aliens” and “against the Rule of Law”….one must understand why these children no longer have parents. When they came into Mexico… from Central America… the Mexicans killed them. These children are then SOLD.
OBSERVATION: When the “pro-Illegals” accept these kids as “refugees”, then they are helping Mexico PROFIT from these horrible activities, because many of the children are sold into Pedophile dens and Prostitute rings. THEREFORE, one can allege that the “pro-Illegals” are all accomplices to criminal activity…according to Rule of Law…..big time.
Get it now?

DHS to Pay For Illegal Immigrants to be Escorted Into U.S.
By Paul Joseph Watson
June 19, 2014 @ 11:13 am
The Department of Homeland Security is set to pay for illegal minors up to the age of 17 to be escorted into the United States, according to a new solicitation posted at FedBizOpps.
Entitled ‘Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children’, the solicitation reads;
ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport. The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.
The post does not explain how ICE arrived at the figure of 65,000 children, nor does it clear up why 50% of the illegal minors are arriving via commercial air. The DHS intends to award the chosen vendor(s) 5 year fix priced contracts.

The program to use taxpayer money to escort illegal minors into the United States dovetails with a recent Infowars exclusive concerning how South Texas Church groups are transporting countless illegals into the United States before letting them go “wherever they want to go.”
Non-profit groups and churches are chauffeuring illegal immigrants from a bus station in McAllen, Texas before giving them temporary shelter and later releasing them onto the streets.
Infowars reporters witnessed children and their mothers, primarily consisting of illegals from Guatemala, being picked up throughout the day by vans marked TFC (the Family Church), before being driven to nearby facilities.
An employee of the organization admitted to Infowars that once the illegals are taken into temporary care, where they enjoy hot showers, food and a place to sleep, they are subsequently released and allowed to go “wherever they want to go.”
It subsequently emerged that the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol was paying for bus tickets and vouchers in order to help the illegals be transported much deeper into the country.
“What happened today in particular is that the Border Patrol dropped off what they call detainees but obviously they’re not detained when they drop them off,”McAllen, Texas City Attorney Kevin Pagan said in an interview with Infowars. “Normally they have tickets or arraigned transportation to go somewhere in the interior [of the U.S.].”
“Today, apparently, for some logistics reasons, some of them hadn’t had transportation arraigned or their transportation is tomorrow, and we’re having to find places to shelter them for tonight, so we’ve accessed some resources that we have to shelter them here tonight.”
Infowars reporter Jakari Jackson also asked Pagan why the Border Patrol is bringing them to the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen.
“They’re not bringing them here, they’re bringing them to our bus terminals because that’s where the Border Patrol understands that they have transportation to go to the interior,” he stated. “So they’re dropping them off and it’s our understanding that they were dropped off with tickets or with vouchers for tickets, but it turns out that some of them tonight didn’t have their tickets or their vouchers for tickets, or like I said their buses are tomorrow, so they have no where to stay.”
“Our bus terminal – by ours I mean the City of McAllen – is not a 24/7 operation so we got to put them up somewhere else.”
In other words, the U.S. government is purposely harboring illegal aliens within the U.S. while passing the costs to American taxpayers.
These revelations arrive in the aftermath of reports that the Rio Grande Valley has experienced an “endless surge” of immigrants attempting to illegally cross the border.
