Leprosy Emerges in Riverside, California

When the buses were turned around in Murrieta, California in 2014 because a bunch of local residents protested at the Border Patrol Station, when asked about my involvement, aside from the unconstitutionality of the federal government's actions, I cited my concerns regarding health issues.  A month before the Murrieta Immigration protests my granddaughter had contracted hand-mouth-and-foot disease.  Reports were floating around indicating that the illegal aliens being shipped into our community were sick with diseases like tuberculosis, chagas, scabies, and small pox.  One of the Border Patrol agents, afterward, wound up testing positive for TB.

In the following months we had a measles scare at Disneyland, and other diseases began to rise up and show themselves.

The United States had all but eradicated these diseases in our country, and a large part of that was because of our strict immigration policies.  To come into this country, aside from the monetary cost, a potential immigrant would need to go through a litany of tests to ensure they are not diseased.

Through illegal immigration, and the Democrats importing people from troubled parts of the world while calling them "refugees", we are literally allowing the most infectious diseases in the world to walk across the border.

Last week in Jurupa Hills, an area in Riverside, California, two cases of leprosy have been reported.


I guarantee you it didn't just suddenly pop up for no reason.

Letters were sent home to parents to inform them of the two cases of the disease discovered at a local school.

Yet another reason we need to be vigilant in securing our borders, and enforcing our immigration laws in a strict manner.  Illegal immigration has all kinds of problems that comes with it.  It violates the rule of law.  It creates a national security risk with illegal immigration has potential terrorists existing in the mix.  And, we are welcoming into our country diseases which places our communities, and our children, at risk.  Are we not willing to at least defend our children against this?  Illegal immigration impacts all Americans, and it places our children at risk.

Are you freaking kidding me? You are not seriously blaming illegal immigrants for hand foot and mouth, which is probably one of the most common childhood illnesses and was never ever even close to being irradicated. The measels outbrake was never traced back to illegal immigrants and I doubt had anything to do with them, and leprosy? Have you even done one 25 second Google search about it? 95% of the population is immune to it. It is not highly contagious as was once thought in the Middle Ages and it is easily treatable. So you're going to have to do a tad more research with your fear mongering next time. And tonight you can thank God that you were born in this country and have never had to worry about how you would provide for your family in your 3rd world country. You are not in fact any better than any of those people, just luckier. And when you build your wall and the price of your food triples because the legal American workers demand $15/hr to pick it, I guess you will have won, huh?

Prior to the sudden increase of illegal aliens being shipped into Murrieta there were no cases of hand-foot-and-mouth disease in the area. The illegal immigration number spiked upward about October of 2013. In early 2014 the number of hand-foot-and-mouth disease suddenly spiked. The timing shows a correlation. A discussion with a nurse on Saturday evening told me that almost all of the cases of tuberculosis and other diseases that are rare in the United States that she comes across in her medical facility infect foreign born, recently arrived, persons. Yes, leprosy infects about 5%, because 95% has a natural immunity, but that is not the point, the point is that a disease that is not common in our area is appearing in a school as the illegal alien numbers skyrocket. As for the $15 an hour B.S., it will destroy the middle class, as designed. Typical Marxist move.
