Tuesday is world TB Day: most cases in US arise in refugee and immigrant communities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

This is an article from Washington state where they say their TB rate has dropped slightly in the last year.

From the Bonney Lake Courier Herald:

Washington has had a slight decline in tuberculosis (TB) cases in 2014 but state and local public health officials are still on high alert when it comes to this disease. TB is second only to HIV/AIDS as the greatest infectious killer worldwide.

[….]

“Tuberculosis remains a disease of concern internationally and in Washington,” State Communicable Disease Epidemiologist Dr. Scott Lindquist said. “TB can be diagnosed, treated, and cured, yet it takes real commitment and effort to effectively deal with this disease.”

[….]

Drug-resistant TB continues to be a serious public health threat in Washington. This variation requires longer treatment periods with drugs that are more expensive. In 2014, 20 cases reported to the state health department were resistant to one or more drugs currently used as a first line of treatment for TB; two were multi-drug resistant. Infection control procedures must be in place in hospitals or health care settings to prevent exposure to this disease and keep it from spreading.

TB rates are often higher among racial and ethnic groups. In 2014, 72.5 percent of cases in the state were in people born outside the U.S. or its territories. In 2014, 43.5 percent of all cases in Washington were among Asians, followed by Hispanics (15.5 percent), blacks (15.5 percent), and whites (11.9 percent). Between 2012 and 2014 the greatest risk of TB in Washington was among Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander communities (27.7 cases per 100,000).

27 students and teachers have tested positive for TB in one Kansas City, MO high school. No word on who Patient Zero might be, see the story here.

Tensions grow in Saint Cloud, MN as more Somalis move in with help of Lutherans

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

Update March 31st:  Leftwing community organizer and race baiter at work in St. Cloud, here.  His goal is to shut down any criticism of the Somali ‘community.’

Update March 30th:  I think the St. Cloud Times is helping with the propaganda campaign with this report on why Somalis make wonderful employees (not!).

Update March 26th:  More on who is to blame—Lutheran Social Service of Minnesotago here to see what you can do!

Update March 24th:  Now the agitation begins in earnest as CAIR arrives on the scene, here.

A few years ago Saint Cloud, MN was targeted as a new Somali resettlement site by the US State Department and its contractor there— Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota.

Originally the Somalis there were what the refugee industry calls “secondary migrants” who move in from other areas of the state or from another state—usually because they hear that an enclave of their kind of people is growing, sometimes for jobs, and sometimes for better welfare.

St. Cloud’s Somali population is now growing as Somalis are arriving directly from hot spots around the world.  (The direct resettlement by the Lutherans to St. Cloud began in around 2010.)

See how the US State Department and its contractors (Lutheran, Catholic and Evangelical contractors) have salted (seeded!) over 6o towns in Minnesota with Somalis in the last ten years!

So is it any surprise that diversity is not beautiful and tensions are building between Somali students and African American and white students in places like Tech High here this past Wedesday?

From St. Cloud Times (hat tip:  Joanne via Bare Naked Islam):

Ethinic tension inside Technical High School became public spectacle Wednesday on its south lawn as more than 100 students and parents, most of them Somali, protested what they described as a pattern of bullying and discrimination to which school officials have not adequately responded.

The protest started shortly before noon. Protesters, including students and parents, chanted slogans and waved posters.

Read all about it here.

Pay attention new proposed resettlement sites like Spartanburg, SC!   You do not want a resettlement agency to open in your town!  See our Ten things your town needs to know!

We have resettled 3,944 Somalis to the US in the first five months of fiscal year 2015 alone!

Why is it the US’s responsibility to continue to admit Somalis—something we have been doing for decades?

According to the US State Department’s handy list of contractors the Lutheran resettlement agency in St. Cloud is here:

LIRS
MN-LIRS-08: Lutheran Social Services Of Minnesota
Address:
22 Wilson Avenue Suite 110
St. Cloud, MN 56302
Phone:
320-251-7700

In the latest ‘Invasion of Europe’ news, authorities bracing for onslaught as Mediterranean weather improves

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

African young men make up the bulk of the illegal migrants making the voyage to Europe.

From Reuters at the Times of Malta:

With migration across the Mediterranean surging, the European Union’s largest border operation is bracing for a record year of arrivals by sea, especially as summer brings calm waters between Italy and Libya.

Off the eastern coast of Sicily, the 18-member crew of the Icelandic coast guard vessel Tyr – named after a Nordic god of war – are conducting rescue drills in seas more familiar in Greek mythology, preparing for the worst.

Though the United Nations refugee agency has criticised the mission, known as Triton, because its mandate is not search and rescue but border control with patrols near the Italian coast, the EU border agency Frontex says it is saving lives.

“We participate in a lot of search and rescue operations that take place far from the Italian shore, usually about 40 nautical miles north of Libya,” Frontex spokeswoman Ewa Moncure told Reuters on the bridge of the Tyr yesterday.

[….]

About 170,000 entered the EU through Italy last year by way of the dangerous sea crossing organised by human traffickers, mostly in Libya, while more than 3,000 perished.

During the first two months of this year, arrivals were up 43 per cent versus the same period of 2014.

[….]

The governments of southern EU countries – including Italy, Malta, Greece and Spain – have repeatedly criticised the failure of the 28-nation bloc to devote more attention and resources to the growing immigration crisis. To increase solidarity, the European Commission has said it will present a “migration agenda” in May, when good weather is expected to boost the flow of migrants and refugees, many of whom are fleeing civil war in Syria or forced military conscription in Eritrea.

This might be a good time to read The Camp of the Saints as the 4-decades-old novel is now coming true.  Author Raspail was only wrong on his prediction of where the invaders would launch from.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series here.  Remember that the US State Department takes some of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US as “refugees.”

Obama’s new program to create ‘refugees’ in Central America to be discussed in teleconference later this month

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

These are the train routes taken by the “children” last summer. Obama’s new plan is supposedly designed to keep the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ off the trains and put them into planes (airfare paid by you) with direct flights to cities across America. Map here: http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/mexicans-blame-americans-for-death-train/

 

 

The federal government is inviting you to a teleconference later this month to answer questions about the plan to bring kids directly from Central America to the US as refugees which then (as newly-minted refugees) will have all forms of welfare available to them, can bring family in later and become US citizens.   We told you about it in February.

Note that the media is not invited!

Dear Stakeholder,

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), in coordination with the U.S. Department of State (DOS), invites you to participate in a teleconference on Tuesday, March 31, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern) to learn more about the Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program. The program provides certain children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are undertaking to the United States.

 

The CAM program began accepting applications from qualifying parents in the U.S. for their children on December 1, 2014. Only certain qualifying parents who are legally present in the U.S. are eligible to file for their children. Each qualified child must be unmarried, under the age of 21, and residing in El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. In certain cases, the in-country parent of the qualifying child may also qualify for access if the in-country parent is the legal spouse of the qualifying parent in the U.S.

 

During this teleconference, representative from USCIS and DOS will provide an overview of the CAM program and answer questions.
