According to a report by Action 4 News, about 10-15 percent of apprehended illegal immigrants have scabies in the RVG area. "A lot of people [are] coming in with the disease, and it seems to be spreading, not just within the McAllen station, but throughout the Valley and to some of our agents," Chris Cabrera, a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council, told the local media outlet.
Zack Taylor, Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, told Breitbart Texas that illegal immigrants are often not screened for diseases during processing.
He said, "Even Border Patrol does not screen people for such diseases due to the sheer numbers of people who need to be processed. Immigrants aren't even screened if they're going into a public jail or an immigration detention facility."
Sharp increases in illegal immigration into the U.S. this year has caused processing facilities to become overcrowded--authorities simply do not have time to screen every apprehended illegal immigrant for diseases.
This is utterly disgusting. These people are bringing filthy diseases over here, yet the Democrats continue to celebrate the illegality.
This is what all of that hyped up talk of Amnesty gets the USA. A flood of uneducated, diseased, public charges who come here and kill citizens while driving drunk, smuggle drugs, smuggle prostitutes, and take citizen's jobs.
Why do the Democrats and the Chamber of Commerce GOP continue to weaken US society at every single step?!?! Because a weak society = unbridled gov dependence.
Our only hope is true conservatism to conserve the greatness of the USA. The left is destroying it.
