    Of all the reports and rants about illegal immigration, this is the least reported. We spent decades ridding this country of such diseases and now they're coming back due to those sneaking across our borders. Or even being allowed in by the Obama administration.

    Attack the source all you want. You can't refute the statistics or the links.

    The returning diseases are;



    1. Tuberculosis

    2. Measles

    3. Whooping Cough

    4. Mumps

    5. Scarlet Fever

    6. Bubonic Plague



    The near eradication of these diseases in the United States during the twentieth century was a remarkable accomplishment of American civilization. Until recently, most Americans believed these diseases were gone from our shores for good.

    Be very very afraid. Be too afraid in fact to live in a free and open society. Police state, it's the safe way to be. "Conservatives" for small govt brought you this anxious message.

    Meh - that is what vaccine's are for. If you are really worried about such illnesses then you get vaccinated.

    TB is back because it has become resistant to the antibiotics used to treat it. Measles is on the rise because dopey parents think they're protecting their kids by not immunizing them. I do find the article's "facts" questionable. Read it more carefully.

    Nothing new, the immigrants from the Carribean have been re-introducing those diseases to South Florida for years now!

    Don't you ever feel embarressed by your dishonest titles?

    While Mexico is indeed one of the 5 countries that TB is coming from- most of the TB patients in the United States are Asian
    After 20 years of decline, tuberculosis inches up in U.S.

    And Measles?

    There is no indication that Measles is coming across from Mexico

    β€œThe majority of people who got measles were unvaccinated,” the CDC notes, adding that β€œ[m]easles is still common in many parts of the world including some countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa.”

    Last years outbreak started in Disneyland- probably either from tourists from the Phillippines, or Americans who visited the Phillippines

    Plague?

    Even the Breitbart article doesn't claim that anyone has brought plague to the United States.

    But you- you lie and claim that plague is coming across our southern border.

    Why do you make that lie?

    This is a statement that is rather counter productive to the point I think you are trying to make as those diseases that were brought across managed to essentially cause genocide to several vibrant cultures...

    Amazing isn't it how Longknife starts these threads and then runs off as if he has no responsibility for what he posted.

    What the hell does something that happened centuries ago have to do with what is occuringtoday?

    We have had medical breakthroughs that have allowed us to eradicate these diseases through vaccinations and healthy living. Now, we are allowing people to enter who are carrying these diseases and passing them on to our population.

    It's a sign of the total stupidity of our current immigration policies. We not only bring in those whose cultist beliefs oppose our very way of life but not bring them in to destroy our very population through their miserable diseases.
