AWFUL: Chicken Pox Outbreak at Illegal Immigrant Facility – In Lockdown
Posted: July 30, 2014
The illegal immigration crisis is only getting worse! The Southern border is not secure, and illegals from Mexico and Central America are fleeing across the border. President Barack Obama knows how bad it is, but wants to increase illegal immigration, as a greater illegal population increases the political muscle of the Democrat party. This is why the Federal government is busing them into states without any warning to local officials.
However, not only are they a strain on social welfare programs and place an unfair burden on border cities, but they bring crime and serious disease:
The federal government’s new facility to house illegal immigrant families surging across the border has been put on lockdown because of chicken pox, with no immigrants allowed to be transferred in or out, a congressman said this week.
Hundreds of illegal immigrants being kept at the campus of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, are being treated for and vaccinated against chicken pox after an outbreak, said Rep. Steve Pearce, the Republican congressman whose district includes Artesia.
“As the FLETC facility reaches maximum capacity, I am increasingly concerned for the health and safety of the women and children at FLETC and for the local community. The virus, that has caused two residents to be put in isolation, has halted all departures,” Mr. Pearce said.
He said he’s asked the Homeland Security Department, which runs the facility, to be available to handle calls from the community.
The chicken pox outbreak is the latest hiccup for federal officials struggling to gain a handle on the surge of illegal immigrants from Central America this year.
While most of the attention has been on the children traveling without their parents, the border has been flooded by an almost equal number of families from Central America — usually women bringing their children with them. While unaccompanied children were being turned over to social workers, the families were eligible for quick deportations — except the government had fewer than 100 beds to hold the thousands of people being apprehended.

This is disgusting and inhumane. To treat illegal immigrants like animals and packing them into facilities with infectious diseases is tragic. The best thing that could happen would be to treat the sick and send them home.
It is time to get serious about border security.
