The problem of invasion across our border is no longer just a jobs problem. It’s a national security problem, a welfare problem, a public school problem, and a dangerous disease problem. It’s not a problem of accepting a few lost teenagers who arrived unannounced. It’s a problem of our public schools suddenly being invaded by thousands of young adults who have never been to any school, who are not familiar with basic hygiene, who can’t read or write, who don’t speak English or even familiar Spanish (but only speak one of 21 different Spanish or Indian dialects), and who may carry new diseases such as EV-D68. Our health-care personnel must now deal with diseases that are not known in the United States. During the summer we suffered an outbreak of EV-D68, a polio-like virus, which is widespread in Central America, where many of the illegal kids came from.
Ebola is now a national health problem that has made our American health care personnel carriers of a fatal African disease that endangers American citizens who never went to Africa.
