Border Patrol agents on our southern border not only have to worry about protecting themselves from illegal immigrants crossing into the U.S. but also they are getting sick from diseases that the migrants carry.
Recently, Ebola was brought into the U.S. by a migrant fleeing the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Border agents are in constant danger of being exposed to this and other diseases.The holding facilities on the southern border are over-loaded with sick detainees and now sick agents. Most Congolese are arriving through the Del Rio and El Paso sectors, or regions, which includes Eagle Pass.
Jon Anfinsen is a National Border Patrol Council vice president and based in Del Rio. He has been an agent for twelve years and said the number of people in custody and subsequent illnesses among that population is “unprecedented.”
Anfinsen said, “Scabies, chickenpox — we had one case of the mumps here in Uvalde. I wanna say we had measles — plenty of the flu, plenty of colds, body lice, just assorted.
And some of these things, they spread like wildfires when you get into a cramped holding cell. It happens.”He also said, “It’s not so much the workload. It’s the constant illnesses. We have a lot of agents who are sick. The other day I talked to agents from four different stations. And every single one of them had a cough.”Anfinsen continued, “I’ll go and I’ll help process.
There was one day I spent processing and we had like 40 Guatemalans and Hondurans, and most of them had some kind of cough. And sure enough the next day, I’m sick — for a week. It’s become the new normal, and you gotta just keep going and do your job because you can’t just not process them.”
Overcrowded conditions makes for a breeding ground of disease. It is rather difficult to quarantine the diseases as they are determined and so the cycle continues as illegal immigrants and border agents keep getting sick.
Measles was declared eliminated (absence of continuous disease transmission for greater than 12 months) from the United States in 2000.
This was thanks to a highly effective vaccination program in the United States.So now, besides having illegal invaders committing petty crimes and felony crimes, they are bringing diseases into the U.S. that could possibly kill us.
There is no cure for Ebola.According to the Daily Caller, there are at least 22 million people here illegally, which is double the number of previous estimates.President Trump has made some progress in connection with Mexican and South American governments.
Some invaders are actually getting stopped at Mexico’s southern border. Guatemala is taking some migrants in to reduce the numbers of people traveling to reach the U.S. border.Even with the help of other governments taking in some of these migrants, the cost to the U.S. is overwhelming.
The people crossing into the U.S. do not come here with their own money. We all know that it cost money to be housed and to eat. Now, bring healthcare into the mix and the price goes up.
On top of this, add in the care for the diseases that these illegal migrants have and spread to U.S. citizens and you have a disaster waiting to happen.President Trump tweeted out this in December of 2018:

If the Trump-Russia election collusion hoax was a movie, Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak would have a starring role.From Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ fateful recusal to National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s resignation to the aftermath of FBI Director James Comey’s firing, the former Russian diplomat made more than just a few consequential appearances. The question is, were these incidental cameos or was Kislyak following a script written for him by the collusion fraudsters?

Against the backdrop of the DOJ admitting FBI investigators never had access to the DNC servers to verify a Russian hack; and with new information about the FBI receiving partial and redacted analysis from Crowdstrike; the review by U.S. Attorney John Durham toward the downstream assessment/claims of the CIA takes on new meaning.
CTH has previously outlined how the December 29th, 2016, Joint Analysis Report (JAR) on Russia Cyber Activity was a quickly compiled bunch of nonsense about Russian hacking.
The JAR was followed a week later by the January 7th, 2017, Intelligence Community Assessment. The ICA took the ridiculous construct of the JAR and then overlaid a political narrative that Russia was trying to help Donald Trump.
The ICA was the brain-trust of John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey.
NSA Director Mike Rogers would not sign up to the “high confidence” claims, likely because he saw through the political motives of the report.(New York Times) […]
Mr. Barr wants to know more about the C.I.A. sources who helped inform its understanding of the details of the Russian interference campaign, an official has said.
He also wants to better understand the intelligence that flowed from the C.I.A. to the F.B.I. in the summer of 2016.
During the final weeks of the Obama administration, the intelligence community released a declassified assessment that concluded that Mr. Putin ordered an influence campaign that “aspired to help” Mr. Trump’s electoral chances by damaging Mrs. Clinton’s.
The C.I.A. and the F.B.I. reported they had high confidence in the conclusion. The National Security Agency, which conducts electronic surveillance, had a moderate degree of confidence. (read more)Questioning the construct of the ICA is a smart direction to take for a review or investigation.
By looking at the intelligence community work-product, it’s likely Durham will cut through a lot of the chatter and get to the heart of the intelligence motives.
Apparently John Durham is looking into just this aspect: Was the ICA document a politically engineered report stemming from within a corrupt intelligence network?
The importance of that question is rather large. All of the downstream claims about Russian activity, including the Russian indictments promoted by Rosenstein and the Mueller team, are centered around origination claims of illicit Russian activity outlined in the ICA.
If the ICA is a false political document…. then guess what?Yep, the entire narrative from the JAR and ICA is part of a big fraud. [Which it is]
Marine biologist Nan Hauser has spent a large portion of her life researching and monitoring ocean life, focusing mainly on whales and dolphins. For 28 years, she has pursued risky aquatic expeditions and taken part in countless dives in the Cook Islands and the Bahamas. During the past almost three decades, she has directed her focus mainly on helping turn the territorial waters of the South Pacific into a safe haven for whales. A recent dive, however, introduced an alarming encounter, unlike anything Hauser experienced before.
