NEW YORK – Dengue hemorrhagic fever has been added to the list of diseases brought by the surge of “unaccompanied minors” who have illegally entered the U.S. this year.

“The big picture here is that we are getting all these diseases brought into the United States by the ‘imported disease people’ from Latin America,” Dr. Lee Hieb, past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, explained to WND in an interview.

Other diseases tied to illegal aliens include Chagas disease, Enterovirus D-68, drug-resistant tuberculosis and malaria.

“We don’t generally test for dengue fever, because until recently we have not had hordes of people coming into the United States from areas of the world like Latin America where dengue fever is endemic,” said Hieb, a WND columnist.

“With other diseases, like TB, we generally test to see if immigrants coming into the United States legally have the disease. But if your one of the ‘chosen few’ coming into the United States illegally from Latin America, the U.S. does no health screening whatsoever.”

In March, as the Ebola outbreak was first becoming evident in West Africa, the United Nations World Health Organization warned the incidence of dengue hemorrhagic fever had “grown dramatically” around the world in recent decades. At least 2.5 billion people, more than 40 percent of the world’s population, are now at risk from dengue, and the WHO anticipated some 50 to 100 million dengue infections would occur worldwide every year.

The WHO has documented that before 1970, only nine countries had experienced severe dengue epidemics. The disease has been diagnosed in more than 100 countries in Africa, Latin America, Indonesia, the Eastern Mediterranean, Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific.

As WND reported Oct. 29, dengue hemorrhagic fever mosquito has surfaced in San Diego and Los Angeles, with suspicion growing the disease-bearing mosquitoes have been carried into the United States on the clothing and baggage of the “unaccompanied minors.”
