CAUTION IS ALWAYS ADVISED TO THOSE WHO FREQUENT RESTAURANTS - BUT NOW THERE ARE MORE NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING PEOPLE EMPLOYED AT THESE VENUES THAN EVER BEFORE......your health may be more at risk!

Check this out:

Legal immigrants are required to have medical screening to ensure that they do not bring any contagious diseases into the United States. Illegal aliens, however, are NOT screened - and many are carrying horrific third world diseases that do not belong in the USA. Many of these diseases are highly contagious and will infect citizens that come in contact with an infected illegal alien. This has already happened in restaurants, schools, and police forces!

Malaria

was eradicated from the USA in the 1940s but recently there were
outbreaks in southern California, New Jersey, New York City, and
Houston. Additionally, Malaria tainted blood has been discovered in the
blood supply.

Dengue

was first recognized in the 1950s, affects most Asian countries and has
become a leading cause of death among children in the infected areas.
Heretofore unknown in the US, Dengue outbreaks have now occurred in the
United States.

Leprosy,

a scourge of Biblical days, is caused by a bacillus agent and is now
know as Hansen's Disease. In the 40 years prior to 2002, there were only
900 total cases of leprosy in the US. In the following three years
there have been 9,000 cases and most were illegal aliens.



As noted in the article Leprosy in America: new cause for concern
by Dr. William Levis, head of the New York Hansen's Disease Clinic.
"It's creeping into the U.S. ... This is a real phenomenon. It's a public health threat. New York is endemic now, and nobody's noticed."
In the same article, Dr. Terry Williams, who runs a Houston-based
clinic serving leprosy patients across southern Texas, said that the bulk of the cases treated by his clinic were immigrants.
"A lot of our cases are imported," he said. "We see patients from
everywhere--Africa, the Philippines, China, South America." (emphasis
added)

Hepatitis A-E

is a viral infection that primarily attacks the liver. In 2004, more
than 650 people contacted Hepatitis A at a single Chi-Chi's Mexican
restaurant in Pennsylvania. Four latter died. Hepatitis B is one of the
major diseases of mankind and is a serious global public health problem.
It is estimated that 2 BILLION people are infected and about one
million persons die each year. The new vaccine is only 95% effective in
preventing an infection and will not cure a person who already has
Hepatitis B, which results in a lifelong infection, cirrhosis
(scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and early death.
An estimated 1.3 million people in the US are currently infected. No
vaccine is currently available to prevent Hepatitis C-E and treatment
for chronic Hepatitis C costs about $1,500 per person.



vaccine prevent hepatitis c-e treatment chronic hepatitis costs 1500 person
Tuberculosis (TB)
kills approximately 2 million people each year. It is estimated that
between 2002 and 2020, approximately 1,000,000,000 people will be newly
infected, over 150 million people will get sick, and 36 million will
die. TB is a highly contagious disease. Like the common cold, it
spreads through the air. When infectious people cough, sneeze, talk or
spit, they propel TB germs, known as bacilli, into the air. Each person
with active TB will infect on average between 10 and 15 people every
year.

The United States currently has one of the lowest rates
of TB in the world. Mexico has 10 times the rate of prevalence and many
African countries along with Afghanistan, Cambodia, the Philippines,
and Indonesia have rates that are 100 – 150 times higher. Making matters
worse, a few years ago a Multi-Drug-Resistant (MDR) strain of TB has emerged that is resistant to all standard anti-TB drugs. Treating a single case of MDR TB costs over $250,000 and as much as $1,200,000 per person, and even with treatment about half of the patients with MDR-TB prematurely die.

In an article in the Journal of the American Medical Assn., Dr. Reuben Granich, a lead investigator for the CDC commented on MDR-TB:

"Evidence of it has surfaced in 38 of 61 California health
jurisdictions, and it could ‘threaten the efficacy of TB control
efforts,' Granich said. The infected were said to be four times as
likely to die from the disease and twice as likely to transmit the
disease to others ... Reluctant to label the infected as ‘illegal' or
even ‘undocumented' aliens, the report notes that of the 407 known cases
of MDR-TB, 84% were ‘foreign-born' patients, mainly from Mexico and the
Philippines who'd been in the U.S. less than five years. The percentage
of TB cases among the ‘foreign-born' jumped from 29% in 1993 to 53% as
of last year."
Recently, there was a TB Outbreak In Oklahoma City in a hospital affecting thousands.

Hopefully, this will not be the new extensively drug-resistant XDR strain just being brought in by illegal aliens (now 4% of US cases) and which is currently impossible to cure at any cost.
In any case, it would not be surprising to find that the source of the
outbreak is an illegal alien working in the hospital or an infected
resident worker who became infected through contact with an infected
illegal alien since the TB rate for residents in the USA is very low.

For more information on TB and the link to illegal aliens, see:

Chagas Disease (American Trypanosomiasis), endemic to South and Central America, is spread by infected triatomine bugs, known as the "kissing bugs," that bite people. It was unknown in the United States until fairly recently. It is now estimated that between 100,000 and 500,000 people in the US have Chagas Disease. Who is infected? Mostly illegal aliens.

Since Chagas Disease is basically unknown outside of the illegal alien community most doctors won't recognize it and the blood supply just started being screened for it. Most cases of Chagas Disease that occur in patients other than illegal aliens are thought to be contracted from tainted blood – blood sold by illegal aliens with Chagas Disease before the blood supply started being tested for it as of August of 2006.
HIV

The number of illegal Mexican and Central American immigrants with HIV
or AIDS is unknown, mostly because researchers rarely ask about
immigration status. However, it is known that the rate of HIV infection
among Latino women in California is about twice the rate of white women.
At one free California health clinic, all of the women have HIV or
AIDS. Most are Mexican or Central American "immigrants."

Then there is Schistosomiasis, Guinea Worm Infection, Whooping cough, Cysticercosis, Morgellon's, and a host of others.

All these diseases and pathogens, and a plethora of others that are
not endemic to the US, are being brought in by unscreened illegal aliens
who then spread them to an unsuspecting population. These diseases will
give you something to think about the next time you are eating at a
restaurant with the grunt work being done by illegal aliens who didn't
have medical screening before preparing and handling your food.


As recently reported in Hepatitis Risk for East Asians in New York,

among east Asian immigrants in New York City, one person in seven
carries the Hepatitis B virus and that researchers at New York Univ.
School of Medicine, found that 15% of east Asians in New York - as many
as 100,000 people - are chronic hepatitis carriers, with the rate
highest among immigrants from China. That infection rate is 35 times the
rate found in the general population. The article did not mention how
many of the infected people were illegal aliens but odds are the vast
majority were.

Health reporter Bill Sardi noted:

"Recently an outbreak of hepatitis traced to Chi-Chi's
Mexican restaurant, in Pennsylvania was inexplicably traced to
contaminated green onions, not the most obvious cause, undocumented food workers who harbored Hepatitis. For the most part, Hepatitis is a blood-borne, not a food-borne disease. The Hepatitis outbreak infected over 650 individuals, caused 9,000 Americans to undergo immune globulin shots, and killed 4 people.

If Americans found out restaurants can commonly infect their
customers from food workers, it would be a serious blow to the
restaurant industry. Better blame the green onions. Let's concede the onions, grown in Mexico, were contaminated from fecal material containing Hepatitis. Did all the green onions imported from Mexico end up in one single restaurant? There were no other outbreaks of Hepatitis anywhere elsewhere from green onions. There were 13 restaurant workers
who had Hepatitis. They were the likely source of the transmitted
infection.

While the unions resist mandatory Hepatitis screening and vaccination

for food workers, the government mandates that newborn babies be jabbed
with Hepatitis vaccines before they can leave the hospital. The logic
in this defies understanding until one realizes that newborn babies of
immigrant families can more easily acquire Hepatitis so all babies are
given the vaccines."



As noted in a May 2006 article, Milford taking harsher stance against illegals than Framingham, increased levels of TB are being noted and some municipalities are finally starting to take action to protect their citizens.

As unfortunate as it may be, the US can not bear the financial burden for treating the world's sick, ill, and infected populace, but the Govt. should be protecting American citizens from the diseases being brought in by illegal aliens.

How many more citizens will come down with Hepatitis, Leprosy, E-coli, or Chagas Disease from contact with an infected illegal alien before something is done? How many school children must get TB before our government takes action to protect them?

Remember the movie Alien and how the creature popped out of infected bodies? The Guinea Worm is a mini-version. Maybe your kids can take advantage of the experience on show & tell day.

If we screen legal aliens for contagious diseases, why are we
allowing unscreened and contagious illegal aliens to roam the country
infecting the citizenry?



Diseases - collateral damage from a "victimless crime" to save ten cents on a head of lettuce.

    Yeah our ancestors told us about all the disease those Euro Immigrants brought from 1492 on. Decimated our people. Especially, when they purposely handed out the small pox infected blankets as gifts. Gee, the first germ warfare. Oh I forgot that was the past. Wait a minute! They purposely moved 12,000 Dine' (you call them Navajos) onto a radioactive toxic dump just ten years ago to steal the coal for a British coal company (Peabody). Many died and babies were born deformed or dead. The genocide still goes on. I guess what goes around comes around.

    I was in a McDonald's the other day, and against my better judgment I ordered a double meat burger. I always watch the preparation. A *NON-ENGLISH* speaking hispanic was preparing all the burgers without gloves on. I made a loud complaint and was assured that it was not a requirement for them to do so. As I was standing there, I noticed an employee further back using just such gloves to handle product being removed from a refrigerator. I made a loud verbal statement as to why he was and the food preparer was not? They seemed dumfounded by my question. Once my food arrived I opened it and it was nothing but bun, burger meat and a freaking pickle! For $6.00 and limp fries? I demanded my money back and got it. Anyone that still frequents these fast food havens of illegal alien employees is asking to get a disease. Tuberculosis is still rampant in Mexico and Central America. Time to clean up this country of this filth.

    Seek the truth, or remain a victim.

We no longer have the luxury of siting back and letting someone else do FOR us - those days are disappearing fast. Today it's BE proactive or BE destroyed.

    The Dallas County health department has virtually given away free innoculations for years. There's no excuse to pass along diseases that have previously been eradicated in the US. Yet every year for the past six or seven measles, mumps and whooping cough show up on the state registers. Part of this is due to illegal immigrants who do not get their shots. Part of it is due to people that believe celebrities that spout off about things like autism blaming regular innoculations for this even though repeated studies deny this. But when we get to lifestyle related diseases is when we get into serious stuff. Cholera is serious and carried by individuals and their waste material into the water supply. Dysentery is also the product of poor hygiene. Much of the food borne illness such as E-coli and Hepatitis are the result of poor sanitation and hygiene along with failure to check people's health records. This will eventually result in some disease coming across the border unchecked.

    Great post! I am an RN at the local hospital and we have taken care of illegal immigrants who are very sick with multiple morbidity due to uncontrolled diabetes, Hepatitis A, B, C. They have appendicitis much more prevalently than the rest of the population. Not to mention the other infectious diseases. As for jobs that no one else likes to do so they are hired to do it - as one American man wisely said,"I don't like to wash dishes but that doesn't give the illegal immigrant the right to move into my house because they will wash my dishes."

    You are able to confir through personal professional what a lot of people would only, though accurately, guess at. Not only is health care at a minimum in many of the countries from which the IA's come, but also the attitude of "flying under the radar," in terms of contact with government and services naturally precludes access to the apropriate care when it is available.

    My addition to the Jobs issue is that it is not so much that the IA's do jobs that U.S. citizens don't want to do, they work for wage rates that honest citizens cannot accept as a living wage - and that is true in a lot of job catagories and not just the disgusting menial labors. Believe me, In Austin I watched a construction crew, of which a certain number were IA's completely sheet rock a very nice ($200k range) home in a single day. The masonry crew also rock veneered one of these homes in two days. That isn't work that other skilled laborors don't want to do, but I can guess based on experience that those workers were earning about half what a trained U.S. citizen carpenter or mason would have been earning.

  • mustang... Wilson 2010/09/09 17:24:30
    mustangluver
    Leprosy is contagious, but is not easily transmitted. It requires the transfer of body fluids to cause infection in another person. Generally, it is not infectious in all forms, and people undergoing long term treatment are not infectious. Most people who are in contact with leprosy fight off the bacteria and do not develop leprosy. Symptoms do not develop for at least a year after infection. It is the same with aids..

    I have been talking to numerous people about this very thing. They say I never thought about that. I have written to both senators an my representatives about this. Even wrote on facebook.
    I am more worried about disease than the terrorists. You can track terrorists. It is difficult at best to track down people who have diseases that have basically been eridicated in the USA. They come from 3rd world countries where medical care is rare and often non-existent for people of their social class. So instead of being checked by immigration officials like legal immigrants the slip across our borders and start spreading deadly diseases. Not a topic I have even heard discusse on network TV.
