MULTI-DRUG RESISTENT TUBERCULOSIS

Further to my previous post of this morning, I recommend that ACSOL's readers click on the following information that further underscores what Dr. Madeleine Cosman is trying to make us all aware of -- i.e., the deadly threat to our health posed by porous borders and millions of illegal aliens in this country. You simply cannot read this and think that President Bush and Congress are looking out for us!

Example:

Many illegals entering this country have tuberculosis, according to the report.

..."TB's swift, deadly return now is lethal for about 60 percent of those infected because of new Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis. Until recently MDR-TB was endemic to Mexico. This Mycobacterium tuberculosis is resistant to at least two major anti-tubercular drugs.... Latent disease explodes later....

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ascribed 42 percent of all new TB cases to 'foreign born' people who have up to eight times higher incidences apparently, 66 percent of all TB cases coming to America originate in Mexico, the Philippines and Vietnam."

Other health threats from illegals include, according to the report:

  • Chagas disease, also called American trypanosomiasis or "kissing bug disease," is transmitted by the reduviid bug, which prefers to bite the lips and face.... The disease also infiltrates America's blood supply... No cure exists....
  • Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease... is endemic to northeastern states because illegal aliens and other immigrants brought leprosy from India, Brazil, the Caribbean and Mexico.
  • Dengue fever is exceptionally rare in America... Recently, according to the report, there was a virulent outbreak of dengue fever in Webb County, Texas, which borders Mexico....
  • Polio was eradicated from America, but now reappears in illegal immigrants as do intestinal parasites, says the report.
  • Malaria was obliterated, but now is re-emerging in Texas.

The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons report includes a strong prescription for protecting the health of Americans:

  • Closing America's borders with fences, high-tech security devices and troops.
  • Rescinding the U.S. citizenship of "anchor babies."
  • Punishing the aiding and abetting of illegal aliens as a crime.
  • An end to amnesty programs.
If the above concerns you, I urge you to sign this online petition, as I have!

Additional links of interest, if you remain unconvinced:

Here. Here. And here. Be informed: don't let the president or the Congress put any form of amnesty for illegals into law, as the lawlessnes that is illegal immigration is costing you and your family in countless ways, and may even threaten your family's health. Insist on tight border security and immigration reform. "Homeland Security" is a misnomer and just another huge, tax-consuming, government boondoggle absent vigorous control of our borders!
