All those illegal immigrant children being shipped into the U.S. right now by the federal government are bringing with them exotic diseases that threaten everyday Americans, suggests a board-certified otolaryngologist. Dr. Elaina George, who specializes in ear, nose and throat conditions, told Newsmax that illnesses ranging from the common cold to tuberculosis are spreading all across the country, and that the situation represents a serious public health threat.
As the alien invasion continues, children from south of the border are being shipped from detention centers in Texas and California to various locations throughout the country. Some are being transferred by bus, while others are being boarded onto commercial aircraft used by ordinary travelers who face exposure to unusual diseases that, prior to this event, were virtually non-existent in the U.S.
“It’s absolutely a health threat,” stated Dr. George in an interview on Newsmax TV’s The Steve Malzberg Show. “It’s like a perfect pressure cooker… a culture medium if you really want to think about it in that manner — a 1700 mile trek by foot, by train or however else they’re coming up.”
According to Dr. George, the children, many of whom originate from Central America, have weakened immune systems and are demonstrating serious symptoms that should be more of a cause for concern. Some of the children are wheezing, while others are coughing up blood, an indication that they are suffering from tuberculosis, a serious communicable disease.
“Not everybody shows symptoms right away, but they could have the disease before it actually manifests or shows itself,” she is quoted as saying. “So they’re just as infectious.”
