In this post last night, I wrote about the untold story behind the immigration crisis. It’s called the health epidemic crisis. This article highlights what’s happening at the border.

What’s frightening is that diseases not seen in the US in literally decades are showing up at our southern border. What’s more frightening is that it isn’t likely that these diseases will be contained at the border.

Thus far, Democrats have insisted that the border crisis was a “manufactured crisis.” After it became obvious that this wasn’t a manufactured crisis, Democrats switched to saying it was a “humanitarian crisis.” Now that contagious diseases are getting detected, will Democrats, led by Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Schumer, continue to put Americans’ lives at risk? Will they ignore this crisis, too?

Jon Anfinsen is a National Border Patrol Council vice president and based in Del Rio, which includes Eagle Pass, where most Congolese are arriving. Anfinsen represents approximately 1,000 agents who are based out of 10 regional holding stations. Anfinsen has been an agent 12 years and said the number of people in custody and subsequent illnesses among that population is “unprecedented.”

“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,” Anfinsen said.

The continuous breakouts — in part caused by the overcrowded conditions in facilities and difficulty quarantining each sick person — are taking both a physical and mental toll on agents.

This wasn’t unforeseen or unpredicted, either:

That interview happened 3 months ago. The CDC said then that they were “playing catch-up” with vaccinations. Since then, it’s quite possible that things have gotten worse.

What’s particularly upsetting is the fact that Democrats haven’t lifted a finger to fix the immigration problem. What’s worst is that they don’t seem at all interested in fixing the problem because they see it as a partisan political issue. How sad is that?

In 2020, voters have a decision. They can vote for the party that puts partisanship ahead of patriotism and doing what’s right. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for this type of malfeasance. It’s a vote for the failing status quo.

If you’re satisfied with communicable diseases spreading nationwide, then you need to rethink things ASAP.
