No one and I mean no one should be shocked by this. Minnesota is now experiencing a resurgence of Tuberculosis… a disease we thought was eradicated. That is until Obama started bringing in unvetted refugees from third world hellholes in the Middle East. If Hillary Clinton gets her way, the number of refugees will skyrocket by 500%. These barbarians not only bring crime with them, they bring a whole panoply of diseases as well. It’s their gift to us… illness and death, along with Shariah law.
The percentage of TB cases in Minnesota is ten times higher than other states and it is thanks to Obama’s Refugee Resettlement Program. But wait… since he’s now planting these invaders across the nation, you’ll probably get to experience it too! Minnesota has had 172 cases over five years. That’s the ones they know about. And with the ease of travel in the States, it is easily spread.
From Breitbart News:
The data you are referring to, showing 50% of the 593 foreign born residents of Minnesota diagnosed with TB arrived as refugees, represents years 2010 – 2014. The majority of those refugees actually developed TB disease after being in Minnesota at least five years, and many had been in the US at least 10 years, so these are not new arrivals to the US.
The presence of other medical conditions is the chief risk factor for the activation of TB disease in a person with latent infection (and remember, a third of the world has latent TB infection). These conditions include diabetes, cancers, immune suppressing medications, and renal disease. These are conditions common with the American diet and lifestyle, and new risk factors for these refugee populations. Tuberculosis can be treated with antibiotics.
Often times the reason that Minnesota reports TB and other infectious diseases at higher rates than other states is because we have a stellar system of surveillance and screening. From 2010 – 2014, in addition to their overseas screening, 99% of our primary refugee arrivals completed an additional health screening within 90-days of their arrival in the US. If you look at national surveillance data in 2014, states with a lower percentage of foreign-born cases arriving as refugees often have a higher percentage of unknown or missing data.
One reason for the sudden uptick in TB case in the US is the increased birth rate of our foreign-born population since 2015. It is the first time in 23 years that the number of TB cases has increased.
This is another reason that people should be more aggressively vetted and screened before coming into America. We used to do that until the Marxists took control of things. There should be mandatory quarantine delays to prevent an outbreak of disease. This would also allow government officials to further investigate the backgrounds and criminal history of these immigrants seeking citizenship. It’s common sense and a matter of survival… and yet another reason not to elect Hillary Clinton.
