Remember how we have written on numerous occasions on this site about one of the principle reasons for the federal government's duty to protect the States from "invasion" under Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution being to protect the receiving American population from the importation of diseases from abroad? That headed the list of concerns and complaints during the 2014 Border Crisis; everything from lice to scabies to foot and mouth disease to tuberculosis and more was pouring across the Mexican frontier, borne by tens of thousands of illegals.
Well, now you can add any and all STDs to that list of contagions for which Barack Obama is putting out the welcome mat and leaving the light on:
Immigrants infected with any of three sexually transmitted diseases that trigger sores or lesions on the genitalia may now enter the United States, The [Commissariat] of Health and Human Services (HHS) has decided.
The Washington Examiner reports that the edict is an expansion of a previous decision to let in those with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. It will go into effect by April.
The three sexually transmitted diseases are identified as granuloma inguinale, chancroid, and lymphogranuloma venereum by Law360.com.
HHS purports to justify it on cost grounds, claiming that they don't think the price tag of dealing with all the sexually transmitted infections "newcomers" will bring with them will be "significant". Which, of course, isn't the point of Article IV, Section 4, which places the interests and well-being of Americans before the aspirations of non-Americans to come here. That rationale has nothing to do with any fiscal calculations. And if anybody believes that there is a circumstance under which Barack Obama would EVER give a rat's tinker's damn ass about being careful with taxpayer money, then y'all have chancroids for brains.
It is as it has always been in The Age Of The One: Americans are to be second-class citizens, if citizens at all, in their own country, while the rest of the world comes here, takes over, and lives it up an everything we ever earned and worked for. The Obama Doctrine applied to immigration.
And the sores are all on us.
