It’s getting less and less difficult to understand why so many people are opposed to mass immigration taking place in America.
According to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, between 2011 and 2015, seven refugees who were infected with tuberculosis were relocated to Idaho. Their diagnoses occurred shortly after their arrivals — after they had already been brought into the country. Either government officials hadn’t properly checked them for diseases, didn’t care to check them for diseases, or a combination of the two. Either way, it’s incredibly shameful.
It’s not just Idaho, either. Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart writes, “The other states in which recently arrived refugees have been diagnosed with active TB include: Louisiana (twenty-one), Florida (eleven), Colorado, (ten), Indiana (four), Kentucky (where nine were diagnosed in one county), and North Dakota (where four refugees who resided in the United States for less than five years were diagnosed in one county).”
That’s a considerable amount of people being brought into the country with a highly contagious disease, yet those who dispute it are completely berated and insulted by the mainstream media and the leftist authoritarians. These kinds of issues need to be dealt with long before potential immigrants are allowed entry into the United States. There are so many issues that can come if proper background checks are not utilized — and this isn’t strictly related to terrorism. As we’re now learning the hard way, disease is a big issue as well.
Our government has become so politically correct and overly ambitious that it’s getting borderline dangerous. The Obama administration is trying to become the real-life Team America: World Police as they attempt to save everyone in the world while simultaneously risking the lives of Americans. It’s absolute nonsense and deserves to receive criticism from our citizens.
There are legitimate reasons to be afraid of mass immigration into the United States. You’re not a xenophobe or an Islamophobe or a racist or whatever other buzz words leftists want to throw at you. If you’re hesitant to support mass immigration into the United States, you’re only one thing: logical.
