The Secret Threat From The Caravan

The migrant caravan’s threat doesn’t just come from the criminals and gang members within it. Migrants who came with the caravan are suffering from respiratory infections, tuberculosis, chickenpox and other serious health issues, Tijuana’s Health Department warned on Thursday morning.

 

A spokesman for the Tijuana’s Health Department told Fox News that out of 6,000 migrants currently residing in the city, over a third of them (2,267) are being treated for health-related issues. There are three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox, the spokesman said. At least 101 migrants have lice and multiple instances of skin infections, the department’s data shows.

 

This threat will only increase exponentially if America’s southern border isn’t sealed completely. It just doesn’t make any sense in these days of exotic diseases and increasing antibiotic resistance to be allowing an invading flood of people. These people and their diseases will threaten law-abiding American citizens, who come in contact with them.

 

Disease used to be disqualifying for immigrants coming to America, will the U.S. government still take this risk seriously?

Sure. God and Christ loves everybody, but you can't let the sick people in so that faithful resident Americans are not being infected.
 
What would your Jesus say about that ?
 
Geez man, you're such a hypocrite.

Good noticing, SEFa...Marty just loves walking and talking Geezus, but will never adopt compassion or concern for others and is one of those who will never see the sky guy's face.  The lamest aspect of Trump's propaganda about the "evil caravans" is how, on top of being rapists and murderers, those people are all diseased.  Those sick, poor women pushing baby strollers will eliminate Los Angeles unless removed from the face of the earth.

It's not necessary to portray the caravan folks as diseased. It's immaterial. If they were all in perfect health it wouldn't change their state. 
 
There isn't a country on planet earth that lets thousands of people march up and right into their borders without paperwork, where no war is raging, where most think they have an asylum claim because they come from a poor country with high crime. That's not how it works.
 
Why don't they claim asylum in Mexico? Mexico is doing so well that Mexicans have stopped coming across the border. For the past decade it's mostly Central Americans now (and the number of Mexicans slowly went down every year since 2000 to almost nothing now). 

Even if you were fleeing a war situation USUALLY that doesn't mean you get a country-shop around the world. The Europeans strangely allowed this situation for the Syria refugees (where most ended up in Germany or France but entered in Italy and Hungary). 
 
You're supposed to be fleeing bombs and bullets, but that's if a war is raging. I have no doubt that a handful of the caravan folks probably do have legitimate asylum claims. But the vast majority do not. 

I don't like the name calling in the comments, but that's me.

The members of the caravan are convinced that the U.S. should take them, they they have some right that someone (probably someone on the left) told them they have a right to come here. There has never been such a right and there will not be one anytime soon. I fear they will bring the chaos from their countries into the U.S., and there si plenty of evidence that they do just that.

America has always been a country of immigrants. Like any other sovereign nation that has laws, there is a legal way to enter the country and these immigrants are welcome.
 
Every year people legally immigrate to America using one of a number of available options. Each option has specific requirements and, depending on the verification procedures of the native countries, will have different processing times. The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) has been charged with enforcing the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA) which allows for the annual granting of 675,000 permanent immigrant visas from around the world. In addition to the INS visa limit, the President of America and the Congress establish a separate annual limit for refugees.
 
The granting of immigration status is primarily based on reuniting family members and protecting refugees who desire to become US citizens or Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs), and acquiring individuals with critical skills needed in America who will enter the country with permanent or temporary visas.
 
Individuals who depart their native countries to avoid persecution can apply for refugee status through a US Embassy outside of their homeland. Individuals already in America, who fear persecution if they return to their native countries, can apply for Asylum status through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
 
Many immigrants sneak into America daily, because they have no regards to America's immigration laws. A country without laws, would cease to exist. Without them you have no foundation for your constitution.
 
There are many countries around the world that are in total chaos because they have no laws or the laws they have are not enforced. These are the countries people are trying to escape to find a better place to live.
 
Remember that God created the authorities ruling over us just as He created us. As Apostle Paul wrote to the Romans 13:1-2 - Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
 
America welcomes immigrants, but like any country that follows the rule of law, we want them to come legally.

You're trying to make it look milder. I'm not talking of immigration. I'm all for control and legal immigration (where circumstances of the immigrants are considered).
 
What I don't like is that your article goes to a very low level by saying that sick people have to be kept out. I said that already in my first comment.
 
This is clearly against Jesus teachings. It has nothing to do at all with "legal" or "illegal" immigration. So if you want to tell me that you're a faithful Christ, think and behave like one. 
 
I'm atheist but I do agree on Jesus' POV (whether they are fake or not, they are valuable). So when an atheist has more empathy than a believer, something's very wrong :-)

As a Christian, I have compassion for all people, even the ones who want to hate me or harm me. I pray for my enemies along with many poor and hurting souls throughout the world. Being compassion, does not mean they you should support people who are breaking the laws of America through illegal entry.
 
Many people in this caravan could eventually enter America the legal way if they were willing to wait their turn. Many of these people are being used by gang members, drug dealers and terrorist as a means to gain entry into America. Some are probably even being paid to say we are a family, when they are not.
 
There are many people in that caravan who are gang members, drug dealers and terrorist, who want entry into America to do evil things. It is the responsibility of the government to do a diligent review of each person to determine who can enter America or not.
 
Conducting this vetting of each individual is not a lack of compassion of the America people, including myself who support this requirement. It is a necessity to assure that legal residence of America are not harmed or killed by evil people, who have bad intentions.
FacePalm Added Nov 30, 2018 - 3:16pm
Many people were detained - quarantined, in fact - for quite some time before being allowed entry; it's a public health issue.  You don't want to let in those who have communicable diseases like bubonic plague, leprosy, tuberculosis, or worse, like that new one out of Africa.
 
While disciples of Christ might certainly desire to let all come in, sick or not, their neighbors might not be so charitably-minded as to risk exposing themselves or their children to what may be a permanently crippling or deadly disease...or worse, getting fired because someone is willing to do their job for less.
 
One must also consider a UN plan(ergo a globalist plan) to destabilize multiple countries via a strategy called "replacement migration," too, a form of asymmetric warfare.  One need look no farther than Germany or Sweden to see it's effects and the backlash.
 
i agree with Trump; this IS a nation of immigrants - LEGAL ones.  i'm all in favor of legal immigration; i despised kids who cut in line AND those who let them do so when i was in HS, and i ain't changed my mind, since.
 
Most of Trump's critics are just so consumed with hatred they want to saddle him with the sins of the world itself, and blame him for EVERYthing, even utilizing the specious (and completely unjust) claim of "creating a climate" for this or that.
 
This is yet another example of why those on the conservative side think those on the left are certifiably insane.

It is a public health issue, but "It just doesn’t make any sense in these days of exotic diseases and increasing antibiotic resistance to be allowing an invading flood of people" is more than a little overblown given what you describe.
Jeff Michka Added Dec 1, 2018 - 12:44pm
It's not overblown if that is the intent:  to overblow, now that border crisis has passe.d from notice by the Orange House.  Midterms are over, so the hysteria can end.  Yeah, that's it:  those migrants have all been given "exotic" diseases by leftists to destroy good white people without firing a shot.  "They'll all get Small pox! Ha! Ha! Ha!" of course. All those women pushing strollers are sick, maybe in their raging fevers will confuse them in the polling places, in their delirium, they'll vote T not D.  You rightists can only hope.

The plot to overpopulate has been going on since 1965.  If Devilcrats thought these invaders were going to turn Republican, they'd launch a war on them.  Let's get real, folks.
Marty Koval Added Dec 1, 2018 - 3:18pm
The Democrats do not want to protect the southern border from people coming illegally, because they see these people as future voters (both legally and illegally). It is a proven fact that the vast majority of immigrants will vote for Democrats.
 
All of the states with the highest proportions of foreign-born voters (California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York) are states where Democrats made some of their greatest gains over the last 20 years. Many of these states, including California, Illinois, and New Jersey, used to be fairly competitive but are now clearly in the Democratic camp. Others – such as Florida and Nevada — once leaned Republican but are now fairly competitive.
 
For the Democrats it is all about power and transforming America from a moral society that has been self sufficient to a lawless society that depends on the government for all their needs. If this trend continues, America as we have known will disappear and it will be not good for the vast majority of people. The only people who will prosper from this are the Democratic politicians and their cohorts in certain business segments.
edinmountainview Added Dec 1, 2018 - 5:23pm
As was mentioned, sick immigrants coming into New York back in the day were quarantined or sent back home.  We have laws on the books that address this situation.  The invasion, that's what it is, an invasion, should be stopped at the border and anyone who is sick will be dealt with appropriately.  I'm sure the Tijuana medics have begun appropriate treatment for the diseased, as will the U.S. Government, should any of them cross the border illegally and are caught.  For those who cross illegally and are not caught, let's all hope they are not carrying any transmittable diseases.

Qasim Raza:
 
Civilized is defined as an advanced stage of social and cultural development. It is transforming from a savage, uneducated, or rude state to a polite, well-mannered and refined state.
 
When you look at the definition of civilized, and compare it to how nations and people are living, we are far from being civilized. This includes all the nations on earth, including America. Societies throughout the world have refined themselves over the centuries, but there is still a tremendous amount of evil, hatred and immoral behavior that cannot be considered civilized.
 
Mankind because of his harden heart cannot be fully civilized until his heart is totally transformed. And mankind cannot do this on his own. This can only happen when someone fully surrenders their life to Jesus Christ. There is no other way!

There is no hypocrisy, Stone-Eater.
The Bible clearly mandates quarantine for those infected with serious diseases like leprosy. Refusing to let the infected in is thus Biblical.
 
The Bible clearly says your moral obligation is to take care of your own household first, then your neighbor, then the foreigner. It is WRONG to aid the foreigner when the VA is letting vets die from rationing, that our hospitals and welfare system are already struggling.
 
It is unfair to bring in more people who compete with our poor for resources. It is cruel to tell the poor in overcrowded schools and hospitals, just deal with it, I'm sure we'll end up with more for you if we just add more poor to your ranks.
 
And it is a moral OBLIGATION to stop an invasion of your country.

Tamara Wilhite:
 
You are correct to say that the Bible instructed infected people with disease to be separated from clean or healthy people to prevent mass death. Here are a few of these scriptures.
 
Leviticus 13:45-46  - "He shall remain unclean all the days during which he has the infection; he is unclean. He shall live alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp. "As for the leper who has the infection, his clothes shall be torn, and the hair of his head shall be uncovered, and he shall cover his mustache and cry, 'Unclean! Unclean!'
 
Numbers 5:2-3  - "Command the sons of Israel that they send away from the camp every leper and everyone having a discharge and everyone who is unclean because of a dead person. "You shall send away both male and female; you shall send them outside the camp so that they will not defile their camp where I dwell in their midst."
 
2 Chronicles 26:21 - King Uzziah was a leper to the day of his death; and he lived in a separate house, being a leper, for he was cut off from the house of the LORD. And Jotham his son was over the king's house judging the people of the land.
 
This was part of the law at that time, and it was a very logical and wise law to protect the people.
