Unbridled “open border” immigration is outrageously unwise. It has historically been associated with forced“immigration”, otherwise known as an invasion.
In the early days of our nation when those who came from Europe forced themselves upon the people living in what is now America (“Indians”) we allegedly took care of those pesky natives by giving them blankets. But not just any blanket — blankets that a person who had smallpox had wrapped themselves in.
We allegedly did this knowing that the blankets were infused with disease. The native people of America, having zero exposure historically to that disease, had no immunity to it of any sort. Huge numbers of them died as a consequence.
At least this is the story told, although there is decent evidence that story may have been fabricated.
Today’s version, sadly, appears to be true.
You see, today our government is doing this, albeit on a much smaller scale and perhaps through misfeasance rather than malfeasance, with our “open border” policy toward Mexico and they’re aiming the disease at our children.
“Let me emphasize something in context to your question,” Brooks said. “Immigration is part of Ebola, is a part of this new virus – I say ‘new’ in quotations marks because it’s relatively new to the degree we’ve seen it in the United States of America that taking the lives of American children, that is causing partial or complete paralysis of American children. All of this is related to immigration because some of these diseases are coming from abroad. By way of example, there was a study in 2013 – I think it was called the enterovirus that is causing the paralysis and death of young children in America – that thousands of residents of Central American countries were found with this illness over a year ago in 2013.
Ebola has all the attention but enterovirus is a disease that is relatively common in Central America but virtually unknown in America. In other words we have near-zero natural immunity to it, and children are particularly at-risk. It’s a nasty bug too, causing permanent harm including paralysis and even death in some of the kids who contract it.
Thus far it has killed at least 7, which is incidentally 7 more US citizens than have been killed by ebola that they contracted inside the United States. More than 700 have fallen ill with it, nearly all children.
You don’t think that allowing tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children to come into the country, intentionally dispersing them through the nation all summer long while refusing to disclose where they went after having intentionally failed to screen them for disease, then effectively forcing state and local governments to accommodate integrating them into our schools where they will expose our children to anything they may have carried with them across the border is the same thing as what “white man” allegedly did to the Native American with their smallpox blankets?
You’re not very bright, are you?
Thank Obama and Congress for their refusal to enforce immigration laws — they’re directly responsible and whether it’s a function of malfeasance or misfeasance dead is still dead.
