Medical experts agree that the increase in TB is attributable to the dramatic increase in the number of foreign born immigrants who entered America over the past three decades.
Breitbart News reported the number of refugees who have arrived with active TB over the past five years is huge.
The returning diseases are;
3. Whooping Cough
5. Scarlet Fever
6. Bubonic Plague…..WHAT! … BUBONIC PLAGUE?
The near eradication of these diseases in the United States during the twentieth century was a remarkable accomplishment of American civilization. Until recently, most Americans believed these diseases were gone from our shores for good.
But a politicized public health system, and a rise in the subsidized migration into the United States, however, have combined to reverse a century of progress.
The number of foreign-born residents of the country has increased by 31 million in three decades, from 11 million in 1986 to 42 million in 2015. Immigration to the United States during this period has come from Middle Eastern, African, Asian, South American and Central American countries where all these diseases are prevalent.
“The sheer number of people who live, work, and travel between the United States and Mexico has led to a sharing of culture and commerce, as well as the easy transportation of infectious diseases,” CDC writes on its website. “The large movement of people across the United States and Mexico border has led to an increase in health issues, particularly infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.”
For this reason, CDC and its Mexican counterpart have established a disease-surveillance infrastructure on the border.
CDC specifically cites the possibility of the cross-border movement of “HIV, measles, pertussis, rubella, rabies, hepatitis A, influenza, tuberculosis, shigellosis, syphilis, Mycobacterium bovis infection, brucellosis, and foodborne diseases, such as infections associated with raw cheese and produce,” though vaccination has helped reduce the risk.
“Refugees, unlike most immigrant populations, are not required to have any vaccinations [including the critical MMR vaccine] before arrival in the United States,” the CDC reports.
These six “comeback” diseases are not the only ones of concern to America’s public health.
Nine other diseases, some of which are prevalent among foreign born residents of the United States and foreign visitors, also present a current problem, to varying degrees, including: zika, flesh eating parasites— cutaneous leishmaniasis, ebola, leprosy, intestinal parasites, HIV, scabies, and diptheria.
Still think immigrants are no threat? If so, read the above again. .
