Detention Center Workers Catching Contagious Diseases From Illegal Immigrants


A new report says that workers at detention facilities for illegal child immigrants are being exposed to contagious diseases, including tuberculosis, scabies, and chicken pox.

The report was issued Thursday by DHS Inspector General John Roth…It highlighted one instance at a Del Rio facility in Texas in which Customs and Border Patrol employees reported contracting scabies, lice and chicken pox. At other facilities in Santa Teresa, N.M., and Clint, Texas, employees said they could have been exposed to tuberculosis.

“Unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities resulted in unsanitary conditions and exposure to human waste in some holding facilities,” the report concluded. “Contract cleaners and DHS employees are working to maintain sanitary conditions.”

Gross. We can add “an epidemic of nasty infections” to the long list of “gifts” illegal immigrants have given America upon arrival–in addition to border violence, drugs and human trafficking.
