Blame game denies the facts as tuberculosis and hepatitis are also spiraling out of control in border states
It’s been a quarter of a century since measles was eliminated as a public health concern in the United States. It is now back — with vengeance — and the virulent outbreak has nothing to do with the so-called “anti-vaxers.”
The disease initially resurfaced in the border states of Arizona and California, quickly spreading elsewhere. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) would have us believe it was spread by unvaccinated people in Amish communities in Ohio and Missouri or in a predominantly Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York — odd choices since both religious groups are self-contained.
As of this week over 700 cases have been confirmed in 22 states.
The CDC states, “Measles is still common in many parts of the world including some countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa.”
Noticeably missing from the list are the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, or our immediate “neighbor to the south,” Mexico. These are the countries that are flooding the United States with impoverished, uneducated invaders, bringing young children — frequently not their own, but used as facilitators — as they caravan by the hundreds of thousands, overwhelming border agents. The agents, with limited space to house them, are releasing them into border states, from which they fan out across the U.S.
This study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Pediatrics in 2014 found that 88% of measles cases in the country “were internationally imported or epidemiologically or virologically linked to importation.”
Only adherents to political correctness, who blandly refer to the invaders as “migrants,” would silence the truth and rush to blame two American religious groups that principally stay to themselves.
Ahead of her time, lawyer, author, activist and Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly (died: 2016) wrote, “Importing Third World Diseases,” in 2005. Her ability to predict the future relating to the resurgence of previously eradicated diseases or introduction of new infectious scourges was uncanny.

Conservative Review ran this report today detailing the thousands of illegals entering the United States with such highly contagious diseases as tuberculosis. The problem is real and it is urgent. We need the army at the southern border.
The open-border supporting local newspaper headlines the rise in hepatitis cases. So far in 2019, there have been 212 cases in Arizona, which is higher than any yearly statewide total in more than a decade. State health officials expect that number to rise.
An outbreak of the viral liver disease began in November in the Tucson area and has spread to Maricopa County.
Never mentioning illegals in the coverage, the newspaper states,
“the cases are primarily among homeless and near-homeless individuals, as well as people who use illicit drugs.”
Pima County Health Department’s Deputy Director Paula Mandel is quoted as saying, “Hepatitis A is often known as “the poop disease” because it is transmitted through feces and can be easily spread when people do not have access to good hygiene and do not wash their hands after using the restroom. It’s a fecal-oral route,” Mandel said. “It takes such minute amounts.” Since Nov. 21, there have been 161 hepatitis A cases reported in Pima County. In comparison, Pima County had just five cases in all of 2017, It can also spread through contaminated food and water. People living on the streets and in homeless camps are particularly vulnerable.
San Diego, where illegals continue to breach the border, is also experiencing high rates of the highly contagious, potentially deadly infectious liver disease.
