Mystery Disease at Border, CDC Stumped

By Faye Higbee

A mystery disease has cropped up in some of the migrants that have crossed the US border, and it’s not the first time. They are being held in quarantine as the CDC attempts to identify the malady. That’s not counting the Congolese who were suspected of possibly being exposed to Ebola, or the mumps and tuberculosis or others cases that could be infecting the border facilities, according to the Washington Examiner, who referred to it as “one step away from catastrophe.”

We previously reported back in March about the diseases like mumps, measles, and others that have been pouring across the border.

The mystery disease

BigLeaguePolitics stated: In one facility there are three patients being held because they don’t know what they have. The CDC have been here to assess them. They are isolated, they only have certain specialists who can see them…

...What scares me is what happens if we someone come over here with Ebola. We only need one person, and there’s a pandemic.”

“There was a female, 10 years old, who was found with 20 different types of semen inside her body. She was dispatched to a family member. The girl who was with her who was supposedly a family member was not really a family member, just someone who bought her from her family in Guatemala. These are real problems that exist here on the border. There are some people who are trying to leave jugs of water out here for them. A lot of these people come to this country needing help,” the professional stated…

...“A lot of these children come over here sick, you don’t catch the flu overnight, there’s an incubation period. A lot of these kids are already sick coming here. Right now, at least 2 percent are being taken up by people who are coming here illegally, somehow someway they do have insurance. We’re guessing that as soon as they come over here they get some kind of insurance, whatever they are not given we have to foot the bill here, and they are illnesses they have had for a while,” the professional stated.


So little children have been raped, and people who just don’t care drag them thousands of miles amid unspeakable dangers. That’s unconscionable.

Somewhere, a certain number of the migrants are obtaining insurance…interesting? For the rest, our facilities are having to foot the bill. Treating them is not just expensive, it is time consuming. And since they usually don’t have established medical histories, the problem is overwhelming.

AOC and Omar have been loudly complaining that the facilities are “concentration camps” yet refuse to vote for humanitarian aid. Fortunately, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (of whom I am not a fan) kicked AOC to the curb and got the $4.6 Billion bipartisan Senate humanitarian aid bill passed in the House yesterday. It’s not enough, but it’s a start.
