Tuberculosis is Spreading at Obama’s Immigrant Camps
What happens when you pack warehouses full of thousands of unvaccinated illegal immigrant children? Diseases run rampant — like, oh, tuberculosis, maybe?
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.
More than 7,000 children have been processed through the two camps, according to a BCFS official. They allege that only 119 children have been treated for lice, 22 for scabies, and one for the H1N1 Flu. BCFS says the most common illnesses seen at Lackland are fever, headache, upper respiratory cold and ingrown toenails.
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.
“The amount of tuberculosis is astonishing,” one health care provider told me. “The nurses are telling us the kids are really sick. The tuberculosis is definitely there.”
It’s hard to imagine how anyone could be surprised by this — most of these children were not fortunate enough to grow up in the United States, after all, and haven’t had access to the health care that we enjoy. It’s sad for these children, but should we really be risking the health of American children because Obama wants to score some political points?
