Dr. Jane Orient
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart, Dr. Jane Orient, an internal medicine specialist and the Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), stated that by admitting these huge groups of children who come from countries where medical screenings are minimal and hygiene is poor, the United States is at risk for epidemics of serious diseases and viruses that the nation has not seen in years and for which we have no immunity.
Well, this is America and of course we are screening these people right? Not according to Border Patrol agent Cabrera where he again told Channel 15 “..the sickness doesn’t stop at scabies… We are starting to see chicken pox, MRSA staph infections and we are starting to see different viruses.” In other words, the Border Patrol does not understand what they are dealing with. This is an unmitigated disaster in the making.
DHS Plays Dumb
DHS has denied Breitbart’s requests for interviews with doctors and medical staff treating sick immigrants. DHS also denied Breitbart’s request to tour their medical facilities in which they are treating sick immigrants. What are they hiding? Breitbart’s staff is merely asking to inspect a public facility that is tax supported.
Breitbart released the following DHS statement:
“DHS has public health controls in place to minimize any possible health risks. Throughout the RGV Sector we are conducting public health screens on all incoming detainees to screen for any symptoms of contagious diseases of possible public health concern. U.S. Border Patrol has established Medical Units at its busiest border stations (McAllen, Weslaco, and Ft Brown) handling UAC. US Coast Guard medical teams are assisting with the screening process, and providing health care evaluations for the sick and injured.
Occupational health and safety guidance has been provided to for CBP personnel in the handling of subjects with signs of health-related symptoms. Our workforce has been provided and encouraged to use personal protective gear including latex or non-latex gloves, long-sleeve shirts, and to take precaution including frequent hand washing”.
What DHS fails to explain away is that many of these immigrants are transported to a remote location within hours of being detained and we are to believe that each and every one of them has gone through an extensive and complete health screening. Does that also include analyzing blood and other bodily fluids because that is the only way to be certain that one is not a carrier of a deadly virus. Further, many pathogens and viruses have a well-defined incubation period prior to a person becoming symptomatic. DHS is either incredibly ignorant or, there are other forces at work here. Further, why is it DHS that is defending the health screening practices and not the Center for Disease Control (CDC)? DHS is a national police force, not a medical investigative body! Something is terribly wrong with this scenario.
When a Pandemic Arrives At the Southern Border, Nobody Will Be Looking!
In the aforementioned ABC report, Border Agent, Chris Carbrera, also stated that DHS summoned Coast Guard medics to help treat detained immigrants who are sick. Again, DHS is not qualified or staffed to make medical calls with regard to what medics may or may not diagnose. Do you know what it takes to become a medic in the military? It takes minimal training and the ability to inject a wounded man with morphine. Coast Guard medics, in lieu of CDC expert doctors, are not trained in outbreak diagnoses and subsequent containment. In short, this constitutes gross incompetence and a severe under-response to a potential health crisis that is not being dealt with.
There are diseases and viruses coming into this country that are so obscure and so virulent, that most of today’s doctors have never seen the symptoms would probably misdiagnose them anyway. It is a certain fact that no medic or DHS personnel will make a proper diagnosis of a pathogen which could lead to a pandemic. Who says that this is true?
The Experts Speak but Nobody Is Listening
In the same interview with Breitbart, Dr. Jane Orient stated that, “Tuberculosis (TB) is the single most dangerous disease because it is highly contagious and can be easily picked up at the mall, at a school, or on the bus… Cases coming from south of the U.S. border can be very resistant to medications. They don’t respond to traditional antibiotics, and the few drugs they may respond to are often toxic, with lots of side effects… Legal immigrants have always been required to undergo health screenings Orient continued, “but these kids coming have no medical screenings… They’re likely coming here with a number of infectious diseases that will spread like wildfire.”
Interviewed by The Monitor, Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, stated that the immigrants coming across the U.S. border, from countries which have third world health care and primitive screening, we will find many immigrants carrying the highly contagious and deadly TB as well as measles. She also expects to see a multitude of hepatitis, malaria, Chagas disease, a parasitic infection, and dengue fever cases. Dr. Vliet conclusively stated that “A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming”.
Border Patrol agent, Chris Cabrera heightens the health concerns when he describes the quarantine procedures at the detention centers. He told ABC that the symptomatic people are moved to one side of the facility and they are only separated by a yellow tape from the so-called healthy immigrants. Cabrera also stated that SEVERAL Border Patrol agents are often infected with scabies. The spread of these pandemics has likely already begun. Meanwhile, these immigrants, meaning no harm to America, are being transported by DHS and ICE all across the country. This is how one creates asymptomatic carriers of deadly diseases.
