New York City health officials are warning that illegals are bringing serious diseases that had been mostly eradicated in the Bog Apple, including Tuberculosis, Polio, and others.
Last week, Health Commissioner Ashwin Vasan explained that illegal immigration has been bringing a new wave of tuberculosis and polio to the city, the New York Post reported.
Vasan issued his warning in an open letter to the city’s physicians and healthcare administrators in which he warned that numbers of invected people have soared since last year.
“Many people who recently arrived in NYC have lived in or traveled through countries with high rates of TB,” he wrote.
“Commissioner Vasan’s letter called on New York to pull out all the stops providing migrants health care, food and legal services,” the Post continued. “Immigrants who lawfully apply for a visa must undergo health screenings and show they are vaccinated, and refugees are screened for TB before entering the United States,” the paper reported.
This wave of illegals is also bringing a crime wave, one that is affecting the most vulnerable, and not just in New York City.
Florida officials said Wednesday that nearly 40% of the people arrested in one part of the state in a recent operation cracking down on child sex exploitation were in the U.S. illegally — amid continued concerns from Republicans about criminals and sex offenders coming in across the southern border.
Officials said that seven out of 19 people arrested in Bay County, Florida, were in the country illegally. Five have no record showing lawful entry into the U.S. One man was admitted on a B-2 visitors visa that expired in 2021, and another was admitted on a J-1 student visa that also expired in 2021.
Of those arrested in Bay County, 14 were arrested for traveling to engage in sexual activity with a minor. Five were arrested for possession of child pornography.
Operation Cross Country XIII was a nationwide operation involving the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). Nationally it led to the identification or arrest of 126 suspects of child sexual exploitation and human trafficking offenses.
That operation also located 59 missing children during the two-week operation.
This is Joe Biden’s fault.
And it isn’t getting any better at all.
