Yet our open southern border allows an even greater number of people from Zika-plagued countries to invade our country every year, and thereby spread their diseases in our communities. Most countries in Central and South America are beset by the Zika virus today. Countries having a problem with the Zika virus include Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela. Those are the same countries that are flooding our nation with illegal immigrants.
President Obama demanded that Congress appropriate $1.9 billion to fight the Zika virus in other countries. None of that money would be spent on securing our southern border against illegal immigration from Zika-plagued nations. Obama’s clueless Secretary of State, John Kerry, told the graduating class at Northeastern University, “You’re about to graduate into a complex and borderless world.” Clearly the Obama administration has no idea how dangerous open borders can be to the health of American citizens. Our borders need to be secured to protect ourselves and our families from dangerous health risks like the Zika virus.
