A resurgence in deadly and dangerous diseases spreading across American can easily be blamed on the immigration policies of Barack Obama and Democrats. A recent lawsuit filed against President Donald Trump by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton and Attorney General Loris Swanson over the White House travel ban could be coming back to haunt them. The peril is not coming from the administration, but from some of the refugees they allowed into their state.
Minnesota is experiencing an onslaught of measles cases like they haven’t seen in over 20-years. According to Breitbart News, “On the public health front, Somali refugees in Minnesota have been identified as responsible for 22 percent (161 out of 732) of the cases of active tuberculosis (TB) diagnosed between 2010 and 2014, despite accounting for about one percent of the state’s population.”
“Recently, female genital mutilation (FGM) within the American Somali community has come to the forefront as a significant problem as well,” Breibart reported. Earlier this month, two doctors and another person were arrested in Livonia, Michigan on charges of conducting illegal FGM procedures on young Somali girls transported from Minnesota.”
The CDC also confessed that 97 percent of the measles cases “were associated with importations from at least 18 countries. More than one in seven cases has led to hospitalization.”
Sadly, there was fair warning that something like this would happen because of the Obama administration. The CDC admitted in a May 29, 2014 press release that “nearly all cases of measles this year have been associated with international travel by unvaccinated people.”
As thousands of illegal immigrants from South and Central America crossed over the U.S.-Mexico border, the CDC acknowledged that 2014 was “the largest number of measles cases in the United States in the first five months of a year since 1994.”
The CDC also confessed that 97 percent of the measles cases “were associated with importations from at least 18 countries. More than one in seven cases has led to hospitalization.”
From Jan. 1 to Oct. 11, 2014, the CDC said 599 confirmed cases of measles were reported with 18 outbreaks in 22 states. In 2013 and 2012 there were 187 and 55 cases reported respectively for those years. In just the first four months of 2016, 159 cases were reported.
Measles, respiratory illness, tuberculosis and other communicable diseases remain a primary concern of millions of Americans opposed to the flooding of illegal immigrants into the country. Some of the diseases were reported to come from the Philippines and Europe, but the unprecedented amount of undocumented aliens was a major factor.
…hospitals throughout America struggled with record breaking numbers of patients in their emergency rooms and overwhelmed them beyond capacity.
While Obama allowed more refugees and illegal immigrants to enter, hospitals throughout America struggled with record breaking numbers of patients in their emergency rooms and overwhelmed them beyond capacity. In October 20, 2014, the largest reported cases of various mystery illnesses included over 4,300 children from Children’s Hospital Colorado. In just one day 540 children visited the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and 340 cases were reported by a Mobile, Alabama children’s hospital. Many hospitals resorted to cease admitting children temporarily as they determine how to deal with the outbreaks.
Medical labs testing confirm that most of these cases were Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). The Obama Administration worked overtime to keep the reporting narrative away from blaming the ongoing illegal and undocumented immigrant invasion into the country.
Meanwhile, six diseases, almost completely eradicated in the United States in the twentieth century are showing up again in a big way. Obama and a Democratic politicized public health system, along with their increased subsidized immigrant and refugee migration, reversed the accomplishments with these six diseases:
- Whooping Cough
- Scarlet Fever
- Bubonic Plague
During the Obama administration the refugee population grew to 3 million in the U.S. Illegal immigration grew close to 11 million. Of the 160,000 illegal immigrant children who crossed into the U.S. in 2016, almost 70,000 came from Honduras, Guatemala and Salvador. In these countries measles and the EV-D68 virus are quite common. If we include these children’s family and friends, not listed an “unaccompanied,” over a quarter of a million people from Central and South America have entered the U.S. illegally last year. Yet, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states:
“A medical examination is mandatory for all refugees coming to the U.S. and all applicants outside the U.S. applying for an immigrant visa. Aliens in the United States who apply for adjustment of their immigration status to that of permanent resident are also required to be medically examined. Aliens applying for nonimmigrant visas (temporary admission) may be required to undergo a medical examination at the discretion of the consular officer overseas or immigration officer at the U.S. port of entry, if there is reason to suspect that an inadmissible health-related condition exists.”
As of May 1, 2017 all the CDC can confirm is that something is causing acute flaccid myelitis that attacks the nervous system, especially in children.
From 1970 to 2005 there were only 26 cases of EV-D68 ever reported in America. In 2014 to 2016 the number the number approached 2,000 cases. At first CDC thought about 10 percent of those cases were causing a polio-type virus that has left children crippled.
“We have tested for over 250 different organisms that could be causing this,” Tracy Ayers of CDC said. “We are also expanding to look at non-infectious diseases.”
Ayers confirmed that EV-D68 was no longer a suspect even though an increase in reported cases in 2016 has the CDC worried. As of May 1, 2017 all the CDC can confirm is that something is causing acute flaccid myelitis that attacks the nervous system, especially in children. It is characterized by “sudden weakness in the arms or legs, with loss of muscle tone and decreased or absent reflexes,” Ayres said. Most patients have to be hospitalized and some are completely paralyzed.
Reports from doctors, nurses, law enforcement and staff workers at various immigration housing and transition facilities revealed enormous concerns about the refugees and immigrants having various infectious diseases as they were being processed and cared for. The Obama Administration continued to allow them to enter.
What is known is thousands of these children were placed into America’s public schools, seen in hospitals and receive medical care, all without meeting normal immunization requirements that American children are expected to have.
The current case count for Whooping Cough, or Pertussis, has increased to 33,000. In 1976, the total was 1,010.
In San Antonio, Texas, reports were coming out daily regarding chicken pox, tuberculosis and respiratory diseases being at the Lackland Airforce facility. The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center facility in Artesia, New Mexico had to go into “lock down” mode because disease was so prevalent.
Providence Memorial Hospital located in El Paso, Texas, a major port of entry for illegal aliens, reported that more than 700 infants had been exposed to tuberculosis, the most dangerous infectious disease in the world.
The CDC reports that the current case count for Whooping Cough, or Pertussis, has increased to 33,000. In 1976, the total was 1,010.
Although information from government agencies was sporadic and patchy, an analysis of data and reports by NEWS LEGIT confirms and supports a connection between the illegal immigrant floods and the infectious disease outbreaks in the U.S. The CDC admitted it “does not know how many infections and deaths from EV-D68 occur each year in the United States” because it is considered an unreportable disease.

During the height of the immigration intake in October, 2014, NEWS LEGIT gathered this information:
In Alabama the Department of Public Health said they continued “investigating clusters of respiratory illnesses in children.” About 50 children were evaluated as part of the investigation with five results testing back positive for EV-D68 so far. The department indicated they were “not counting potential cases on an individual basis so it is unknown how many people in Alabama have been infected with D68.”
Two major clusters of respiratory illness in children occurred in Mobile and in north Alabama. Over 200 undocumented children were sent to Jefferson and Marshall Counties.
Arizona reported over 12,000 cases of infectious diseases in 2014, compared to a five year median average of 8,667. In September 2014, Arizona had only once case of Mumps. On September 1, 2014 there were nine cases reported.
Maricopa County, which received at least 205 of the immigrant children in the summer of 2014, the most of any county in the state, recorded record breaking cases of infectious disease. This included 840 cases of hepatitis, 578 cases of invasive MRSA, over 400 cases of various Strep, 217 reports of Pertussis, 183 cases of viral aseptic meningitis, and at least one infant death from influenza. While not transferred from person to person, the state has been burdened with another disease. There were 3,298 cases of Coccidioidomycosis reported in the county, almost 4,800 had been found statewide.
Arkansas. The Department of Health reported they received confirmation through laboratory testing from CDC that EV-D68 is in the state. Pulaski County received about 70 illegal immigrants out of the almost 300 transported to Arkansas.
“While the Ebola virus carries a very low risk to the general public, the timing of its arrival coincides with seasonal rise of another, far better known and dangerous virus,” said Governor Mike Beebe in 2014. “Flu season is beginning in Arkansas and across the U.S. and the flu causes thousands of American deaths every year.”
Both senators from Arkansas, Democrat Mark Pryor and Republican John Boozman, called on President Barack Obama to ban Ebola stricken countries in West Africa from traveling to the U.S. All four members of the State’s U.S. House delegation also called for a ban.
California. Health officials revealed that at least 14 patients have tested for EV-D68 on October 3, 2014.
Over 40 illegal immigrants were quarantined in July because of an outbreak of scabies and lice.

One of the children has suffered paralysis, although an October 1 report from neurologists say that up to 25 children in California may have suffered from polio-like illness that has caused some degree of paralysis. The first case of EV-D68 was reported on September 18, 2014.
The Denver area treated over 4,600 children at different hospitals and urgent care centers.
Colorado was one of the hardest hit locations in the world for the EV-D68 virus. At least 10 children were struck with paralysis in the Denver area. Arapahoe and Denver Counties received at least 67 and 64 undocumented immigrant children respectively.

Dr. Jane Orient, Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, admitted her concern that the upsurge in illegal immigrant children being dispersed around to locations across the U.S. could have been “very well” much of the causes of the viruses. “We don’t know for sure the government is being real tight-lipped about this, and it only takes one infected child to infect the whole classroom,” Dr. Orient said at the time.
The fact that the highest rates of TB in America are along the Mexican Border States was especially difficult for the Obama White House and mainstream media to push as just coincidence, blame past administrations, or opposing political parties.
