Kalpana Dangol, 19, from Nepal, died of tuberculosis in Colorado Springs, Colorado this week. Everyone around her for months stands at risk for the disease.
Seven years ago, TB proved virtually extinct in the United States. Today, according to the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, GA, in excess of 13,500 new cases of TB circulate throughout the USA. Culprit: both legal and illegal immigration.
But that's not all in store for American citizens as massive immigration into the United States brings various diseases from the Third World.
A serious health crisis immigrating
will soon have American citizens fearful of any kind of blood transfusion. It’s not as dramatic as 9/11, however, it
presents another ‘stealth’ attack on American citizens by people who arrive in
without knowing they carry the disease.
A sickness most Americans never heard of,
Chagas Disease, is already in our blood supply in cities like
Los Angeles and
Houston. Recent news stories are confusing on that account. But one thing is for certain, it’s coming to
your location, soon.
What is Chagas Disease? It’s a T cruzi protozoan that is injected
into a human’s blood stream by the Kissing Bug (Vinchuca) in
Mexico, Central and
America. It attacks a
person, often times, in the face while he or she is asleep by ‘kissing’ them in
the fold of the cheek. Within time, the
parasite races into the blood stream to destroy the heart and other
organs. It infects 14 million in South America and kills 50,000 people per year
south of the border.
With the onslaught of illegal
immigration, a blood bank official said, "We've known about Chagas for
many years. In fact, there has been a serologic test for Chagas for a long
time." But a NY Times story said that the Food and Drug Administration has
not approved a reliable test for the presence of the disease in blood supplies.
One researcher at a major pharmaceutical company told the Times she doesn't
expect a test to be available for some time. Another blood bank spokesperson said,
"We have put so many sensitive tests in place now that getting a blood
transfusion is life-saving and necessary. No one should feel uncomfortable
about Chagas." Then in the same story read: The FDA hopes to have a
standardized test for it in about a year.
You might weigh all those confusing or
contradictory statements against some known facts about Chagas disease. It is
locally transmitted in
Since there is presently no test to detect this disease, legal immigrants can't
be screened, and, the average of 2,000 to 8,000 illegal migrants crossing
borders daily are not screened for any disease.
Besides blood supplies and organ
transplants, how else is Chagas disease transmitted? It’s transmitted by
infected feces, contacting eyes, mouth, or open cuts. It transfers by infected
mothers passing the parasite to their babies at birth or breast feeding. It can
be contracted by eating uncooked food contaminated with infected feces from
someone handling food after having changed a baby diaper, but not washing their
hands, which is a habit of most migrants coming from south of the border. Over
14 million people are infected with 50,000 deaths annually. So far only nine
cases are documented in the
In Chagas, like Hep-C, the symptoms are
'silent' until the disease is advanced. But the contagion is active even when
symptoms are 'silent'.
There is no test to screen blood
supplies or those infected who may be handling your food. There are few overt
symptoms and no medical treatment except for subduing symptoms in final stages.
Those who carry the disease come from nations where the disease is endemic and
mostly undiagnosed, and will consider their symptoms natural. Forty years of
legal immigration at 1.3 million a year and illegal immigration at one million
a year, have overwhelmed our health care agencies. Perhaps no one you love has
been infected or denied care because ERs go bankrupt or facilities are so
crowded that care is delayed beyond a reasonable or safe time.
If you don’t live near large immigrant
settlements in the
you may be safe. However, the New York Times reported, “Because the disease is
most common in southern
the threat is greatest in American cities with immigrants from those areas.”
Others may want to rattle some chains in Congress and tell them that you, along
with 70 percent of the American public want immigration laws enforced and legal
immigration reduced to 1965 levels of 175,000 annually. Without enforcing the
US border with
Mexico, Americans have a lot more
to worry about besides mere gun-toting, plane-flying terrorists sneaking past
Homeland Security agents. It’s called
Chagas Disease and it slides over our borders inside the bodies of a percentage
of illegal alien migrants who walk over from
Mexico at an estimated 2,000 to
8,000 each day. You might want to call
and thank your congressional representatives for this minor oversight.
