Obama’s illegals bring disease to America’s children

America’s children are paying the price of Obama’s largesse. We were warned

An agent stationed at the McAllen, Texas, Border Patrol station told a radio host Sunday that diseases carried by illegal aliens crossing the Rio Grande are “slipping through the cracks” and will soon begin affecting the entire nation, possibly even “coming to your town.”

Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera said that diseased illegals were being dumped at various areas around the country. Pay close attention to where:

“It’s not always the ideal medical care,” Cabrera confessed, “and a lot of it is slipping through the cracks. I read now one of the publications this morning that [reported] they had a bunch of people go in there in at a detention facility [that] had to be shut down due to chicken pox. It’s kind of alarming, seeing as we toured that facility less than a month ago and they assured us that they had everything in order, that something like this wouldn’t happen. And sure enough, it fell through the cracks.

“We’re not set up for this, and we’re inviting more problems,” he said. “The thing is, these [illegal immigrants] aren’t staying down here in the border region. This problem isn’t contained in the border areas. [They] are coming in here, they’re going north, and it’s going to affect the entire country. It’s going to affect the New Yorks, the Washington, D.C.s, the Chicago, the Dallas, even the Kansas, the Iowa, that’s where they’re headed, and that’s where it’s headed.”

Klein asked Cabrera to clarify that he was talking about was medical issues spreading to places like Chicago, New York City and Kansas.

Remember that Cabrera said Kansas was a dumping site for illegals? Obama policies bear fruit there now:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An unusual respiratory virus is striking children in the metro in big numbers. Children’s Mercy Hospital is hospitalizing 20 to 30 kids a day with the virus. The hospital is as full now as it is at the height of flu season.

This is not the same virus we told you about several weeks ago that can cause meningitis. This one can cause severe breathing trouble. Children’s Mercy has seen more than 300 cases in recent days in kids of all ages.

Preston Sheldon’s mom says he seemed fine when she took him to pre-school Tuesday. But minutes later, the Grain Valley mom got the call. Her three-year-old son was having trouble breathing.

“You could see his ribs, and his stomach was pushing out really hard… I thought it was an asthma attack,” said Pam Sheldon.

But it was a virus that is inundating Children’s Mercy with patients.

And when you hear the word “unusual” from doctors, it means it has recently been introduced:

“To be at winter census is quite unusual in August obviously. To see a virus we’ve not seen before is unusual, too,” said Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, an infectious disease specialist.

It is enterovirus 68. The doctor says it’s well-known around the world, but cases have not been seen in Kansas City before.

Barack Obama dumped illegals in Lynn MA.

Lynn is a municipality on the brink. Key department officials say a recent influx of illegal immigrant children and families in the city is stressing almost every service from trash collection to healthcare.

“We have been aware of the unaccompanied children issue for quite a while, and we were able to absorb a lot of these children early on,” said Lynn Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy. “But now it’s gotten to the point where the school system is overwhelmed, our health department is overwhelmed, the city’s budget is being sustainably altered in order of accommodate all of these admissions in the school department.”

Well, hello Tuberculosis

LYNN, Mass. (AP) — More than 30 Lynn Community Health Center employees and 800 patients are being tested to determine if they were exposed to tuberculosis after center doctors confirmed a case.

Center Director Lori Berry says after confirming the single positive test for tuberculosis in a male health care worker around Labor Day, center medical workers contacted and tested employees as well as patients ‘‘having sufficient exposure to warrant testing.’’

Now a respiratory illness is spreading to children like wildfire across the country.

A respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors say.

The disease hasn’t been officially identified but officials suspect a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

According to Mark Pallansch, director of the Division of Viral Diseases at the CDC, similar cases to the ones in Colorado have been cropping up across the U.S. At least 10 states — Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Georgia — have reported suspected outbreaks of human enterovirus 68 and requested CDC support.

It’s struck Ohio hard:

Medical officials admitted a record number of children to a local hospital over the weekend because of what they believe to be a rare respiratory virus spreading throughout the country.

Although there’s been no confirmed cases of the enterovirus at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, officials admitted 540 patients Friday, said Dr. Derek Wheeler, associate chief of staff at the hospital.

The previous record was around 515, Wheeler said.

Some reports out of Missouri and Colorado suggest the virus, with symptoms similar to the common cold, brought sicker patients to hospitals, Wheeler said.

“We’re just seeing the (increased) volumes, we haven’t seen (patients) sicker than usual yet,” he said.

Hospitals from other states have placed restrictions on visitations, but Wheeler said there are no plans to do that in Cincinnati.

Ohio, you say?

Ohio agencies rally help for young immigrants

Ohio charity wants to house immigrant children

Feds: Ohio sponsors already have 360 ‘unaccompanied children’

In Colorado:

Immigration cases involving unaccompanied minors are clogging one of the Denver area’s two immigration courts, records obtained by CBS4 indicate.

There are nearly 8,000 immigration cases backlogged in the immigration court in downtown Denver. Nationwide, there are 400,000 cases in a backlog.

“It’s creating another extreme crisis within the immigration court system throughout the United States to deal with all these additional cases,” David Kolko, the chairman of the Colorado chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said.

And now?

The CDC has confirmed samples from children in Colorado have tested positive for Enterovirus 68.

The illness causes symptoms similar to the common cold, only those symptoms progress quickly and become much more severe.

Colorado is one of 10 states that asked the CDC to look into it. No deaths have been reported yet, but with thousands of cases being diagnosed in just days, doctors are racing to contain it.

Confirmation tonight from the CDC is putting health officials on higher alert.

“Most of the isolates that we have sent them are the enterovirus, giving them increased wheezing and asthma problems,” said Dr. Christine Nyquist, Children’s Hospital Colorado.

Enterovirus typically causes symptoms similar to a cold, but this year’s strain is so severe, some believe it could turn into an epidemic.

“It’s a phenomenal number of cases that you didn’t even hear about before,” said Dr. John Torres, KRDO medical expert. “If you listen to different hospitals and press conferences. Its hundreds of cases that three days ago you didn’t even hear about.”

900 cases so far.

Enteroviruses are a family of viruses that include polio and Hepatitis A. Five children in California have been identified as having “polio-like syndrome.” Two of them tested positive for Enterovirus 68.

This disease is painful for children and it is becoming a significant health care cost. These kids should not be sick and if not for Obama’s narcissism none would be ill. None would be ill had Obama not created the illegal alien DREAM Act magnet. There have been no reported deaths so far but if one American child dies Obama will have a great of explaining to do.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Gee, who would have thought something like this might have happened? There’s a reason why they used to do screening at Ellis Island. This is that reason…

    Well — it is looking like the only answer will be to vote STRAIGHT demo-commie-cRAT — we will NOW absolutely NEED Obama care and the demo(lition) pahtie is our only possible salvation!

    Doubt me? — Please explain what the worthless RINOs have accomplished (NOTE: “accomplished” as in “ACHIEVED”) in opposition to the demo-COMMUNIST party in the last 6 years — not a damn thing.

    And FOX — – will all there is to say about “Fair and Balanced” is that it is the same as “cut the baby in two” — the answers have been out there for 3000 years — better pay heed.

    DrJohn,
    You may be privvy to things not making into the news.
    I notice the news refuses to tie these new diseases to immigrants who came through without medical screening.
    But whatever it is, it is spreading.
    Utah only took about 82 children (unaccompanied minors) but, as of last night, it has cases of this rare (here) common in Central America respiratory disease.
    The children only went back to school the last week of August in Utah.
    What’s the incubation period for this disease?
    Why don’t the Central American ”kids” have it so bad they can’t breathe when that’s how it hits our kids?
    What do you know about this disease?

    This is very similar to what happens when peoples from different parts of the country are confined in a small space. In basic training, people from all over the country bring their strain of respiratory diseases to their unit. They eat together, sleep in closely confined barracks and experience variations in climate/temperatures to which they have not been previously acclimatized. Within 2 weeks, nearly the whole unit experiences upper respiratory illnesses that can range from mild illnesses to severe illnesses where hospitalization. It is quite understandable that placing illegals into classroom situation or community situation would cause the noted illnesses. It is also possible because the strain of the illnesses from illegals are so much different from the endemic strains of our children, there exists a more debilitating disease than that mostly seen in the US.

    Illegals, soon Ebola will creep into our nation as our faux CIC, the Quisling of America allows foreigners without docs to come in, swamping our health, education, housing, public safety infrastructure. And Obama wants them to do that. Back in the day, this rat would be driven out of DC on a rail.

    @Glenn Koons: Back in the day, this rat would be driven out of DC on a rail.

    It would have had to have been way back.
    I saw a photo of a new president Bill Clinton (1993?) signing a bill with the professors Cloward and Piven standing in a place of honor.
    Obama is only doing what Cloward-Piven wrote would result in the collapse of America’s capitalist economic system and America’s political system.
    They are communists who want American institutions burdened to the point of collapse, to be replaced by communism.
    All these imported diseases are certainly burdening our medical systems.

    The problem isn’t these poor kids. The problem continues to be doctors medicating everyone they can get their stethescopes on. Too many meds.

    Retired from working in infectious diseases, I screamed for years about the illegals I learned about who were spreading diseases unchecked. Working in 3 states and with all public health clinics in those states, I repeatedly heard of multi-drug resistant TB, untreated HIV, Hep C, ad mortem. The cost to Americans by any measure of expense and loss is beyond imagining.

    @Richard Wheeler: I explained in my post what is causing the viral infections. Over medication does not reduce the effectiveness of the immune system. It matters not if you are fat or thin. A virus doesn’t check your weight. Virus infections are best prevented through immunizations. (Annual Flu Shot!) When a slew of new viruses are let loose upon an unimmunized population, the people get sick. Drugs only relieve the symptoms. Not sure where you found the reasoning behind your post. (May be true for bacterial infections, but not viral!)

    Randy

    @Richard Wheeler: My feelings have nothing to do with my posts. My observations of irrelevant reasoning is fact, not feeling. I realize that as a liberal, you must follow your feelings which is why so many liberals feel there is global warming caused by humans instead of looking for facts.

    @Randy: The medical problems these kids may bring?
    A diversion from our real problems—-obesity, over medication, carnivorous diet, sedentary life style. Let’s address these real problems not jump these poor kids.
    RE Global Warming We are unquestionably experiencing G.L. One of the major reasons the cost to feed farmed animals and the resultant toxic waste into the atmosphere. For certain you can’t care about our fragile environment and be a meat eater.

    @Richard Wheeler:

    Epidemiology 101 refutes your claim. If what you claim had any truth to it, then why do we not see flu season levels.of hospital admissions for.respiratory illness all year round? Mixing large numbers of new populations together is a known cause of increased disease rates, as those who are immunologically naive to the other population’s “native” diseases become ill when exposed to previously uncommon pathogens. The wave of illegals, large numbers of which are not vaccinated, serves as a pool of disease that can easily spread here, particularly to those who reject vaccinations, and to all who are immunologically naive or immunocompromised. Diet, unless significantly nutrient and/or calorically insufficient such that it impairs immune function, has nothing to do with the spread of a particular infectious disease through an immunologically naive population.

    @Pete: I don’t question your diagnosis Dr. I question this overblown concern vs the seeming lack of concern for our real and overwhelming health problems as a nation.
    These kids are a blip on the radar.

    Let’s see: If I bring my mutt into the country, he has to be quarantined after providing an up to date vaccination record. Can’t let Phydeau , the fur baby of a Democrat elite get sick with a nasty illness can we? But sick illegal children are freely mixed with middle class school children with out a smidgeon of a health inspection. Ironic, isn’t it?

  16. 20

    Randy

    @Richard Wheeler: The real problem is that those kids and any time a group of people mingle with another group of people they exchange viruses for which they are not immune. You again missed the whole point with your “feelings” instead of facts.

    Randy

    @Richard Wheeler: Looks like it is turning out to be a large and spreading blip. We quarantine dogs and other pets when we bring them into the country for the same reasons. Take your dog to a kennel in a neighboring city for a week. He will come back with a kennel cough. same situation with the illegal aliens bringing new strains of viruses into our population. Admit you are wrong for a change instead of altering the purpose of the thread.

    @Richard Wheeler:

    There is such a thing as being too compassionate. In this case, what happens to the children – both American, and the illegal unaccompanied minors that Obama’s despicable amnesty shennanigans led to cross our border illegally – when the medical system is overloaded with patients that have no ability to pay for treatment, and hospitals are not reimbursed by the taxpayers via Medicaid enough to pay the bills required to function as a hospital? What happens when the federal government cannot come up with enough money to pay for all the welfare checks, and the local communities cannot pay for the increased local expenses? There is no money tree that will magically pay for all the kumbayah-singing leftist utopian pipe dream projects. We have an existential threat coming from the islamic world, and bankrupting our nation with “feel-goodism” such that we cannot field the necessary military force to resist this 1400 year savagery and defend our civilization will certainly be far worse for children – no matter their national origin.

    Think back to your military experience. Which is easier? Defending against an enemy with an intact defensive perimeter, or after the enemy has broken through your defensive border and is wrecking havoc within your interior lines? And please do not downplay the potential threat. The 9/10 mindset is long past its due date, and incredibly, dangerously shortsighted. Asymetrical warfare, and the repeated historical concept – which you should remember from your military experience – is that generals are always fighting the LAST war, when the enemy hits them with something unexpected. Who knows what these barbaric vermin will try – did we really believe they would coordinate 20 pilot trainees with box cutters to use our own airplanes FOUR TIMES in one morning to cause the devastation of those attacks? Evil, these scumbags are, but they are not stupid. What happens if they hack a power grid and fry it? Cause overwhelming physical stresses to infrastructure that results in massive explosions, toxic waste, catastrophic loss of power, water, transportation assets, communications? Hey – this Ebola outbreak sure has the potential to be used by suicidal shaheed to spread an epidemic through major western cities, doesn’t it?

    Obama has managed to lose the trust and respect of all our allies, and has made America look like a doddering eldery lion vulnerable to the pack of slavering hyenas waiting to take down their next meal.

    Don’t let the far-left fool you with their crocodile tears for “passion”. Their Cloward-Pivens strategy is neither about helping the poor nor compassion. It is a progressive-left implementation strategy for ever expanding, and overloading the entitlement system to create the greatest amount of pain and poverty possible until until the entire economy collapses under it’s weight. Then when it goes to hell and the populous is in desperate straights, the progressive-socialists step up and tearfully cry that the only way to solve our nations problems is to fundamentally transform the nation into a socialist “democracy”.

    And there are more.than enough uneducated and government dependent people for them to succeed. Compare both Bush presidents obtaining authorization for the use of military force, and forging international coalitions of 40 plus (Gulf War) and 30 plus (Iraq/Afghanistan) nations, to Obama’s unconstitutional expansion of executive power via refusal to obtain congressional authorization and thus far zero nations willing to join the anti-ISIS war effort. Yet the ignorant hyperpartisan cultists still lie and claim the Bush efforts were illegitimate, while giving Obama yet another pass on his lawbreaking.

    Obama has stunned the world with this.
    Israel is backing off helping after it’s satellite spy data, sent to Washington DC for Obama, was simply passed on to Iran and Assad as well as Turkey and other enemies of Israel.
    The UK, the Germans, the Aussies all are backing away.

    Obama is re-writing world alliances and sending America into a cooperative with its sworn enemies.
    WHY?
    Has he been a Manchurian candidate the whole time just waiting for this?

    @Nanny G:

    Simple. He is much closer in his sympathies to islam than to Christian principles. his foreign policy in the Middle East has clearly demonstrated a preference for the most militant islamic movements. When the population in Iran tried to rise up against the mullahs controlling that terrorist thugocracy, one which is actively working to build nuclear weapons and regularly calls for the complete destruction of Israel, Obama did NOTHING to support the popular uprising against the primary supporter of international muslim terrorism. When the disgusting terrorist front group, the Muslim Brotherhood, was overthrowing Mubarack – a fairly steady ally for the west against more militant islamic groups, though certainly not perfect – Obama and his harpy witch SecState Clinton called for and exerted pressure on Mubarak to step down, and threw support to Morsi, the islamic thug on top of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. When the economy crashed due to the barbaric idiocy of Morsi, the military led a coup to overthrow these jihadist scum. Obama and his clueless SecState repeatedly demanded the military stop, and even after the junta had control – with massive supporting demonstrations against Morsi’s government from the Egyptian population – Obama kept insisting that the Egyptian military had to include Morsi in some sort of coalition government. He was demonstrating yet again the preference for pro-islamic/jihadist/supremacy thugs. Then we look at Obama’s fiasco in Libya leading to Qaddafi being overthrown by vicious muslim animals, setting the stage for the murder of our Ambassador and three other Americans there while his administration blatantly lied by claiming a planned terrorist attack using mortars and RPGs was supposedly a ‘spontaneous protest over a video showing disrespect to islam’. Now, when faced with a glaring example of exactly what the koran tells muslims to do to make islam the dominant religion of the world manifesting as ISIS, what does this worthless, dishonest, arrogantly foolish community-organizing leftist worm do?

    -He says “ISIS is not islamic”
    -He says “We are not at war, but only engaging in severe counter-terrorism actions”
    -He says “No American boots on the ground”

    He is so massively stupid that he doesn’t begin to have a clue as to how pathetic his strategy is, or he KNOWS and is doing this all deliberately. Either way, he is not, and never has been, fit to hold the highest office in the country. The results of the last 6 years of his – and the extreme left democrats (but I repeat myself) – policies have rocketed our nation farther down the road to economic and social collapse, the complete loss of respect of our allies, and grieviously weakened our military.

    Never trust anyone who makes the idiotic claim that the muslim call to prayer at sunset is “beautiful”. It is a demand for submission to something that is absolutely not the Judeo-Christian Deity.

    @Pete:

    Pete, I knew that Obama’s foreign policy was going to be a disaster when, just five months after he was inaugurated, he backed the Chavez wannabe, Manuel Zelaya, the deposed Honduran president. As Zelaya boarded a private plane supplied by Hugo Chavez, to leave the country, loaded up with Honduran government money, spending over $80,000.00 in his first five days out of country, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. and Hillary Clinton demanded the Hondurans take Zelaya back and restore him to office.

    The Hondurans stood strong, even when Obama ceased all foreign aid to them at the time. The mouse that roared was our own president.

    Egypt, as you clearly point out, was another policy disaster. While Egyptians held up signs saying “Obama, help us” he continued to back the Muslim Brotherhood faction that the left wing press (like the NYTimes) told us didn’t exist and was not a faction in the Egyptian uprisings. Obama instilled a Muslim Brotherhood control in Egypt; the Egyptians, themselves, rid their nation of the MB. We can now scratch Egypt off the list of U.S. allies.

    The list of insults by this current disaster of an Administration against our allies is long; Great Britain, Germany, Egypt, to name a few, yet we are told by a feckless Obama that the world is safer than it has ever been. Reality doesn’t seem to be Obama’s forte.

    Did these illegal children’s parents just send them to America so they could be treated for what ever sickness they already had? Not worrying that they could cause an epidemic in the US?
