A border patrol agent was diagnosed with scabies after processing undocumented immigrants in Otay Mesa, California, the agent's union representative said. Ronald Zermeno, health and safety director for the National Border Control Council union, said the agent told him that he observed several people with open sores while screening them in preparation to be released to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Scabies is caused by a mite that burrows into skin and lays eggs, causing an intense itching and rash, according to theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention.
In a letter to the chief patrol agent of San Diego's U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Zermeno said border patrol agents processing the undocumented immigrants were told that those arriving in California had been pre-screened for health conditions.
This sounds to me as if these people crossed over in Texas and were flown or bussed to California. How else would they be pre-screened? Hmm, I wonder if the airplanes and busses have been decontaminated? If not, we are talking about spreading disease to everyone else who uses them.
Agents in California, however, were not advised to decontaminate themselves or their uniforms, he added. "This demonstrates that we are not properly trained to identify infectious disease and to properly respond when we suspect a disease,"
This is even more alarming. We have disease-ridden unfortunates flooding in, and our first responders are not trained to handle the disease vectors they bring.
As Glen Reynolds of Instapundit always says, sarcastically, “The country is in the best of hands.”
So let’s think this through.
tens of thousands of people have already flooded in, and are being held in facilities where they can spread disease among themselves.
Hundreds a day are being sent across the nation for distribution to relatives, mostly living in Hispanic communities.
Isn’t the expected result a series of epidemics afflicting first the Huspanic communities receiving the “immigrants” and later the surrounding communities?
How does this serve the national interests of the United States?
This is laughable. 100 years of immigration history? We are talking about the mass immigration of 2013-2014 not 100 years ago. We have a president who has stood up for 6 years and made speeches about enforcing his own version of immigration reform. Obama has asked for this and it is happening.
What's more, the republicans refuse to legislate on immigration.
I wouldn't be surprised if there is another round of missing emails in the next few months between DHS and Obama concerning immigration and the border.
I'll ask again, when did it become the responsibility of the US to care for these kids?
Obama seeks change to law that protects immigrant kids
Alan Gomez, USA TODAY 7:02 p.m. EDT July 2, 2014
As part of an effort to stem the flood of children caught trying to cross the nation's southwest border, President Obama is trying to change a 2008 law that dictates how the federal government handles those immigrant children in order to speed up their deportations.
Under that law, most of the unaccompanied minors being caught by Border Patrol agents must be handed over to the Department of Health and Human Services, which coordinates care for them, finds them safe housing and helps advise them on their legal rights as their immigration cases are decided. The president is now asking Congress to amend the law in a way that would allow Border Patrol agents to render a deportation decision themselves and quickly deport the children back to their home country.
Obama made a vague request for changes to federal law in a letter he wrote to congressional leaders on Monday. But a White House official confirmed on Wednesday that the administration is considering changes to the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, known as the TVPRA, to fast-track deportation decisions.
The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the requested changes, said the administration remains committed to the basic tenets of the TVPRA that guarantee protection for children from trafficking and ensures they aren't deported to a dangerous situation. But the official said the changes are necessary to update a law that was crafted when the flow of unaccompanied minors crossing the border was far lower.

amnesty for illegal aliens

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy

Petition to Defend America's Borders
Article I, Section 9, Clause 7 of the Constitution says, “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.”
I demand that the House stand for American sovereignty and defend our southern border by prohibiting President Obama from expending any funds on the release of illegal aliens from federal detention and the transportation of them to the interior of the United States.
No more money for free bus tickets for illegal aliens, no more free air fare, no more money for a program that allows over 90 percent of those illegal aliens who are released to simply disappear into my neighborhood.
