Pass Funding for the Border Wall
"Crisis" of Seriously Ill Migrants Slams Border Patrol - TB, Pneumonia, Influenza, Parasites
Reports from the Border Patrol reveal that is getting slammed daily with dozens of illegal immigrants carrying parasites and "serious illnesses" such as tuberculosis, influenza and pneumonia. A Guatemalan migrant died in US custody on Christmas eve due to Influenza B, a virus that causes respiratory infections. Federal agents refer 50 illegal immigrants a day for urgent medical care. There are also lots of pregnant women about to give birth.the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan calls the situation a "crisis." Phil Gingrey, a former lawmaker, referred to it as a "severe and dangerous" crisis because the youths are importing infectious diseases (chicken pox and measles) considered to be largely eradicated in the USA. To handle the escalating health crisis the CDC activated an Emergency Operations Center that largely operated in secret. Meanwhile the fake news outlets report that illegal immigrants don't bring disease into the US. (Source Judicial Watch Corruption Chronicles Jan 9 2019).
90 percent of the heroin in America comes through our southern border, fueling the opioid epidemic, destroying families, and killing thousands of our fellow citizens. In the past two years, more Americans have died from opioid overdoses than died in the Vietnam war. (Source Heritage Action, read full report here.)
President Trump tells Americans to TAKE ACTION!
President Donald Trump spoke directly to the American people on January 8. He spoke with a heavy heart about the growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. Here are a few of his statements:
"Last month, 20,000 migrant children were illegally brought into the US -- a dramatic increase. These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico."
"In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings."
At the end of President Trump's speech he asked us, the American people, to TAKE ACTION and continue to contact our Members of Congress. He said, "To every member of Congress: Pass a bill that ends this crisis. To every citizen "Call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border."
Members of Congress MUST hear our roar of support for the border wall before it's too late.
