A bio-terror threat at the border?
The Drudge Report posted two seemingly unrelated news items yesterday, which together could contain the seeds of death and global chaos.
The first is a Reuter’s report on the deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa. As stated in the article the mortality rate for the current epidemic is 80%. However if the patients are hospitalized soon after becoming symptomatic, the mortality rate drops to just 25%. But currently there are no “magic bullets” or vaccines for treatment of the Ebola virus.
There is one sentence in the Reuter’s report that should give us all chills, “Weak local health systems and porous national borders were magnifying the infection risk.”
The second Drudge post, via Fox News, is titled, “Endless wave of illegal immigrants floods Rio Grande valley.”
FoxNews.com accompanied Texas lawmaker Louie Gohmert, a former judge and current Republican Congressman, to the site in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday. Gohmert, whose district lies some 550 miles northeast of what has become the most heavily-trafficked people-smuggling route in the world, has been to the location many times, but has never seen it so understaffed and overwhelmed.
In May 5,366 illegal immigrants were detained in the Rio Grande Valley Sector. Last month, that number skyrocketed to 30,380, according to a law enforcement document obtained by FoxNews.com.
Agents normally accustomed to working in the field waited at the bus, donning blue latex gloves as they examined the incoming illegal immigrants. They asked questions, searched belongings for contraband and tried to determine if the immigrants need medical help.
Most of the illegal immigrants appeared to be in clean clothes and good health — the biggest complaint FoxNews.com heard was from a child who had lost a shoe in transit. All looked very happy to have finally arrived on U.S. soil.
But appearances are deceiving, one border source said, “Many of them have scabies, lice and sometimes serious infectious diseases that have not manifested themselves yet,” the source said.
From the staging area, the illegal immigrants were taken to the McAllen Border Patrol headquarters a short ride away. Though it is technically a processing center, the sheer size of the current influx has rendered it something more akin to a detention facility. By Saturday morning, it held 480 immigrants, about 100 more than their capacity. A few weeks ago, it held 1,200, Gohmert and Border Patrol sources told FoxNews.com.
With the facility crammed beyond its capacity, the undocumented immigrants are being bused and flown to several other processing facilities along the 2,000-mile border, in El Paso and in California, where angry residents of Murrieta, a small city just north of San Diego, have turned away hundreds of illegal immigrants brought by the federal government for processing.
So how difficult would it be for the ISIS, Iran, Hamas, or Hezbollah to insert some Ebola infected jihadists into the wave of illegal aliens flooding our southern border?
It is time to write and phone your Congressmen and Senators and tell then to stop this illegal immigration madness; we are opening ourselves up for a disaster of monumental proportions.
It is time to flood the White House with calls and emails, and let B.H. Obama and his sycophants know that the lives of your parents, your children and your community are at severe risk.
Biological terrorism would be as deadly as a nuclear strike on the American homeland.
