Nearly 200 immigrants in Texas detention facilities have mumps
CBS Austin, Mar 1, 2019

Nearly 200 immigrants are suffering from mumps at detention facilities across Texas, according to a state health agency.

The Texas Department of State Health Services says 178 detainees had confirmed cases of mumps as of Feb. 21. Another five cases were reported among detention facility employees. Texas detention centers account for 76 percent of mumps cases at such facilities nationwide, according to federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

Lara Anton, a spokeswoman for the Department of State Health Services, said in an email that patients range in age from 13 to 66, and that “there has been no reported transmission to the community.”

She added that the state doesn’t know the vaccination status of detained migrant adults or the children who entered the U.S. with them — but that “all unaccompanied minors are vaccinated when they are detained.”

"January 20th 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again."  --  President Donald J. Trump

One reason there should never be a catch and release nor should an undue delay be placed on getting them out of the country as rapidly as possible.

Not only expensive to take care of medical conditions, but the potential danger of affecting Americans is real.
Yearning to stay free takes place in many ways at many different times, whether by withstanding planes or bayonets
