When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man [Sir William Keith], who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.

Chikungunya is endemic to parts of Africa, Asia, southern Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans, but began appearing in the Caribbean in December.

I don't see any mention of Mexico in that list.  Doubtful that illegals are the source.

Likely source is a traveler(s) who returned from an infected area.

Same thing just happened near Austin and the person with the virus just returned from the Caribbean.
