Tuberculosis, flu, infections rampant as the number of sick migrants surge at border
By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times
Monday, December 31, 2018

Border authorities are referring 50 people a day for urgent medical care, including tuberculosis, flu and even pregnant women about to give birth, a top official said Monday, saying it’s unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.

Most of those in need of care are children, and a staggering 28 percent are under age 5, having been dragged along for the trip by parents who in many cases are hoping to use the children as a shield against speedy deportation from the U.S.
 
The numbers were released after a full review was done of all children in the custody of Customs and Border Protection in the wake of two illegal-immigrant children who died in U.S. hospitals in December.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

In the days of Ellis Island, sick immigrants were either put into the infirmary (for diseases from which they could heal quickly), or... sent back.

Nowadays, it's to the hospital for the best medical care... free of charge.
