Tuberculosis at refugee camps for the ‘unaccompanied minors?’ Not to worry, we have Obamacare!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 7, 2014
For long-time readers of RRW this should not be a surprise. Our normal refugee resettlement program allows refugees screened abroad with both TB and HIV/AIDS to enter the country, why would we expect that somehow the unscreened are all free of infectious diseases. (Hey, sure is good that we have Obamacare to take care of them all!)
See our post in March about how the foreign-born represent most of US TB cases, here.
Here is the latest disturbing news from Todd Starnes at Fox News (Hat tip: Joanne):
Are the thousands of illegal immigrant kids housed in detention facilities happy and well fed — or are they living in disease-infested compounds shrouded in secrecy?
Well, it depends on who you ask.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seems to think the children coming across the southern border are remarkably healthy. It’s a sentiment shared by BCFS — the Texas-based agency formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services contracted to run camps at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio and Fort Sill in Oklahoma.
However, at least a half dozen anonymous sources, including nurses and health care providers who worked at Lackland, allege that the government is covering up what they believe to be a very serious health threat.
Several of my sources tell me that tuberculosis has become a dangerous issue at both the border and the camps.
Read the whole thing yourself (if you can stand it!). I’m weary of the invasion news! Tomorrow we need to return to some other refugee news items that have fallen by the wayside in the last week!
