Illegal Aliens Are Importing Scabies
To the many exotic features of the vibrant multicultural tapestry that has been enriched by the federal government’s refusal to take effective steps to close the border we can add scabies:
Several U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) sector have reportedly contracted scabies from contact with detained illegal immigrants.
According to a report by Action 4 News, about 10-15 percent of apprehended illegal immigrants have scabies in the RVG area. “A lot of people [are] coming in with the disease, and it seems to be spreading, not just within the McAllen station, but throughout the Valley and to some of our agents,” Chris Cabrera, a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council, told the local media outlet.
Aren’t at least the ones who are caught screened for diseases before they are turned over to public jail, put in immigration detention facilities, or released? Often not:
Sharp increases in illegal immigration into the U.S. this year has caused processing facilities to become overcrowded — authorities simply do not have time to screen every apprehended illegal immigrant for diseases.
So many colonists have been enticed by US policies into violating our sovereignty and ignoring our laws that processing them properly with the resources that have been allocated is not feasible.
According to the Associated Press, the RGV sector has arrested more than 130,000 people for immigration violations since October 1 — this marks a 67 percent increase from last year.
Overcrowding has made it difficult to identify and quarantine infected detainees. Many are concerned that scabies and other illnesses may be passed onto the general public.
Our federal rulers, however, are not concerned. If they were, the border would be sealed so tight within a week that no one would seek to cross it illicitly. They certainly have the means to do it, just not the will.
