Obama and Hillary Clinton Declare Unrestricted Germ Warfare on America

Over the past several months our friend Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart has documented the unprecedented rise in cases of tuberculosis, measles and other infectious diseases brought to the United States through the Obama “refugee” resettlement program that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped craft and has so staunchly defended. 

As documented by Leahy, one would likely have to travel back to pre-Ellis Island America to find a time when disease carrying immigrants were so readily allowed to enter the U.S. And the worst part is that most of them Barack Obama diseaseshave been brought here at taxpayer expense to sicken the citizens that Clinton and Obama swore to defend

And this view is supported by respected physicians, including Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, who criticized the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for allowing refugees to enter the United States without screening and treatment for latent tuberculosis. 

Seven of the agency’s own public health experts said such screening and treatment “would potentially save millions of dollars and contribute to United States TB elimination goals” in a research article published in December of 2015. 

“Admitting people who might cause an epidemic makes no sense whatsoever from a public health standpoint,” Orient told Breitbart News. 

“It suggests that those who favor it do not care about the cost in suffering, death, and expense to Americans,” Orient said. 

For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the number of measles cases in the United States grew from 63 in 2010 to 667 in 2014. It fell back to 189 in 2015. 

Back in May Leahy documented how a measles outbreak in Tennessee was likely attributable to the entry of unvaccinated refugees because the majority of the more than 70,000 refugees resettled annually across the United States through the federal refugee resettlement program are not required to have been vaccinated for measles prior to their arrival here. 

“Refugees being resettled in the United States, unlike immigrants seeking residency, have not been subject to immunization requirements,” according to a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) released by the CDC in January 2015 and posted by Leahy to Breitbart.  

Of the 1,601 refugees resettled in Tennessee in fiscal year 2015, 186 were resettled in Memphis, according to a report provided by Catholic Charities of Tennessee, which administers the program in the Volunteer State on behalf of the federal government under the Wilson-Fish alternative program. 

Less than one percent of those 1,601 refugees (a total of twelve individuals) were from the six countries (Thailand, Nepal, Uganda, Kenya, Malaysia, and Ethiopia) where refugees are required to be vaccinated for measles as a condition of their entry to the United States. 

Of the refugees resettled in Tennessee by Catholic Charities of Tennessee under the federal refugee resettlement program, 1,589 (99 percent) came from countries of origin where the United States government does not require that refugees have measles vaccinations, including 332 from Iraq, 214 from Somalia, 206 from Congo, 393 from Burma, 138 from Bhutan, 57 from Sudan, 47 from Afghanistan, and 31 from Syria. 

The first reported measles case in the Tennessee outbreak was attributable to a mosque, and given the over-representation of immigrants from Muslim majority countries it suggests a nexus between those refugees and the measles outbreak, but public health officials immediately clammed-up and refused to answer Leahy’s questions. 

But measles isn’t the only infectious disease the Obama – Clinton refugee resettlement program has brought to America in dramatic numbers. 

According to Leahy’s research, one of every five refugees resettled in Minnesota by the federal government tested positive for latent tuberculosis in 2014, according to the state’s Department of Health. 

Note: Only 4 percent of the general population in the United States tested positive for latent tuberculosis in the most recent report provided by the Centers for Disease Control

The April 2016 edition of the Refugee Health Quarterly, published by the Minnesota Department of Health reports that:

Minnesota had 150 cases of TB in 2015, compared to 147 cases in 2014 (a 2 percent increase). The most common risk factor for TB cases in Minnesota is being from a country where TB is common. 

According to Leahy’s reporting, twenty-six percent of all foreign born cases of tuberculosis in Minnesota were from people born in Somalia. Somalians almost exclusively enter the state through the refugee resettlement program. 

What’s more, this public health disaster has been going on for years, but largely out of the public eye prior to Leahy’s exposes. 

Eleven refugees with active tuberculosis (TB) were among more than 111,000 refugees who arrived in Florida during the three years between 2013 and 2015, according to a report the Florida Department of Health released to Breitbart News. 

Though the CDC has gone to great lengths to assure Americans that refugees do not present a tuberculosis health risk to them, the actual data from Florida and Indiana reported by Michael Patrick Leahy belie that claim. 

According to Leahy’s reporting, four refugees sent to Indiana by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement in 2015 were diagnosed with active tuberculosis once they arrived in the Hoosier State, according to the Indiana Department of Health. 

Active tuberculosis (TB) is infectious, while so-called “latent TB” is not infectious. But 10 percent of those infected with latent TB develop active infectious TB. 

In 2015, almost 400 migrants with latent TB settled in Indiana, according to state records. The state’s TB rate had declined for the 54 years up to 2010, but is now increasing as more migrants settle in the state

Two-thirds of contagious tuberculosis carriers in the United States during 2015 were born overseas, up from one-fifth in 1986. 

The government’s increased inflow of tuberculosis-carrying migrants appears to have reversed a 23-year decline of contagious tuberculosis cases inside the United States. 

And Leahy has documented that it is not just in refugee-heavy Florida and Tennessee or Indiana that this public health disaster is being perpetrated.

The jump in foreign-born cases from 22 percent in 1986 to 66 percent in 2015 is caused by the federal government’s policy of accepting more tuberculosis-infected migrants from countries with large-scale contagions of the deadly and debilitating disease. The disease spreads when carriers cough or exhale the TB bacteria. 

In 1986, about 5,000 of the estimated 22,725 cases of contagious TB, or ‘active TB,’ reported in the United States were diagnosed in foreign-born patients, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The data appears in the CDC’s May 10, 1996 MMWR Weekly Report, “Tuberculosis Morbidity — United States, 1995.” 

In 2015, 29 years later, the percentage of foreign born cases of active TB in the United States has tripled to 66 percent. The total number of active TB cases have declined to 9,563 in 2015 because of large-scale public health programs, but the number of foreign-born cases has increased from 5,000 up to 6,335. That is up by almost 20 percent since 1986. 

American-born active TB cases have declined from an estimated 17,725 in 1986 to 3,201 in 2015. That is down 80 percent since 1986. 

As Michael Patrick Leahy’s exhaustive research demonstrates, the surge in infectious diseases that has developed since 2009 isn’t some unpredicted natural disaster. It is the result of a conscious plan by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to reduce the United States to a pestilential Third World country courtesy of the importation, at taxpayer expense, of “refugees” carrying diseases that had been all but vanquished through 100-years of public health screenings and vaccination.

Surge in infectious diseases

I have been quite concerned about the measles outbreaks reported sporadically and the outbreak of Enterovirus that caused so much severe illness in pediatric patients in 2014. This was a disease that hadn't been seen in the US since the1960's, except for a few cases in HIV patients, the elderly and the immunocompromised. There have been deadly out breaks in Asia in young people. Just today I read of multiple immigrants in Colorado who have inactive tuberculosis. That means that they can become infectious without treatment. I think our leaders a century ago had a smarter plan when immigrants were quarantined at Ellis Island until they were cleared of known infections. My specialty is not infectious diseases, I have no government background, but it seems to me that all entering the US should be screened for infectious diseases prior to being granted entry. The borders need to be closed to stop the drain on our economy and public health from illegal aliens.
