Federal and state governments under authoritarian Left-wing regimes are increasingly demanding that parents subject their children to potentially dangerous vaccine regimens, but when it comes to migrants and refugees coming into the country, that demand hypocritically vanishes – despite the fact that more than one-in-five of them in parts of the country test positive for a dangerous disease.
As reported by Breitbart News in recent days, a shocking 22 percent of refugees who the Feds have resettled in Minnesota (already home to a burgeoning immigrant population), tested positive for tuberculosis in 2014, according to the state’s health department.
The April 2016 edition of the Refugee Health Quarterly, published by the Minnesota Department of Health reports that:
Minnesota had 150 cases of TB in 2015, compared to 147 cases in 2014 (a 2 percent increase). The most common risk factor for TB cases in Minnesota is being from a country where TB is common.
TB screening is offered to all refugees during the domestic refugee health exam.
In 2014, 22 percent of refugees screened tested positive for LTBI [latent tuberculosis infection].
By the way, about 10 percent of latent tuberculosis cases progress to active disease, killing about half of those affected, according to the World Health Organization, which also notes in a March 2016 fact sheet about the disease that one-third of the world’s population harbors latent TB, making it the top infectious disease killer in the world.
Twenty-six percent of all foreign-born cases of TB in Minnesota were from people born in Somalia, the state health department said. Somalians enter the state almost exclusively via the refugee resettlement program, which is handled by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services.
Over the past three decades, more than 70,000 have been resettled in the U.S. by the federal government each year.
As further noted by Breitbart News, it isn’t just tuberculosis that is being imported along with the refugees – measles, whooping cough, diphtheria and other diseases are also being brought in, diseases that had long been eradicated or were on their way to becoming eradicated.
In fact, as Breitbart News reported previously, a recent outbreak of measles occurred in Memphis, Tenn., at a center for refugee resettlement, a local mosque.
As for the Minnesota TB statistics, the news comes on the heels of reports from the CDC that in 2015 the incidence of tuberculosis in the United States increased.
“Data from 2015 show that the number of TB cases has increased (by 1.7 percent) nationally [in the United States] for the first time in 23 years, with a total of 9,563 TB cases reported,” the Minnesota Department of Health reported.
These statistics and reports should make all Americans angry, but unfortunately, they won’t.
One of the primary arguments made by Leftist vaccine thugs in the United States is that so-called “herd immunity” won’t really protect our children from getting diseases, even if most kids have been vaccinated. Well, what will importing diseases into the country do – make our kids safer or more at risk? But, because they are afraid someone might label them racist bigots for daring to suggest that the smart thing to do is to always put our own country and its people first, they stay silent when a refugee population is 20 percent more likely to harbor a deadly disease than citizen populations.
That’s worse than hypocrisy, it’s stupidity.
Meanwhile, our kids are being put at double risk – risk of catching an imported disease, and risk of being severely disabled by mega-doses of vaccines. Some choice.
