When you understand all the consequences of illegal immigration you realize it would be nice if all they did was take American jobs.
A lack of documentation doesn’t just shield them from paying taxes to our government while they’re free to use public services. Plus, it’s much easier for them to fly off the radar when they commit crimes.
But another huge consequence that’s not often talked about is that of disease. When immigrants come into this country legally, they have to pass a number of health tests. Obviously, the same isn’t true for those flooding in illegally.
Agents still encounter tuberculosis, scabies, measles, chickenpox and other unidentifiable infectious diseases when apprehending illegal immigrants on the South Texas border, an officer exclusively told Infowars.
Border agent Chris Cabrera, also vice president of the National Border Patrol Council 3307, said the respiratory disease tuberculosis is encountered “pretty regularly,” and that little has been done to improve the quarantine areas where illegals who harbor communicable diseases are detained.
“We see tuberculosis pretty regularly. Scabies – more often than not we have large amounts of infectious diseases as far as scabies go,” the border patrol council spokesperson stated. “And the interesting part with that is it’s not actually seen on the body during the infectious period. And so these people clear through our system and then they go into the rest of the country with that disease.”
“We see a lot of measles, a lot of chickenpox a lot of unidentified illnesses, a lot of lung infections that we don’t even know what we have no idea what they are.”
Cabrera had claimed in 2014 that detainment facilities were lacking in adequate medical resources, describing areas cordoning off sick illegal immigrants as little more than a yellow strip of caution tape.
This is just a random thought, but I’ve heard my liberal friends jokingly refer to Christopher Columbus and his crew were the first illegal immigrants. My response has always been, yeah, and the Natives probably wished they had a border when you consider the consequences for them.
Ninety percent of the population of Native Americans was killed as viruses (mainly smallpox, measles, and the flu) they had never been exposed to before ravaged the continent. I’m going to go ahead and say it’ll be a good idea to learn from the mistakes of the Native Americans, and regulate immigration for the purpose of national health, if nothing else.
