Thousands and thousands of illegals from Central America, including gangsters and
unaccompanied minors youths, are pouring across the Mexican border into America.
Note: As FOTM’s Trail Dust points out, calling these illegals “unaccompanied minors” is a misnomer — a calculated move by the Obama regime and their willing accomplices in the media to gain our sympathy. The truth is many of these “unaccompanied minors” are criminals and gangsters in their late teens who have perpetrated torture and murder. See “We need to re-define the term ‘minors’.“
By now, we have ample evidence that not only is the federal government not securing our border, Obama is deliberately enabling the human tidal wave of illegals. So brazen is the POS that on Monday, he told Congress right to their faces that he would act on his own after House Speaker John Boehner said the House would not take up an immigration overhaul this year. The next day, the POS taunted the Republicans, daring them to “sue me.”
Not only is the human tidal wave inundating our border agents and the border states of Texas, Arizona, and California, the illegals pose a serious health risk to Americans because they are bringing in contagious diseases like tuberculosis, measles, scabies, chicken pox, strep throat, including risk of the horrific Ebola that’s devastating West Africa.
The latest: Doctors and nurses at a Texas refugee camp for illegal alien youths are being threatened with arrest if they divulge information about the illegals’ contagious diseases and the risk they pose to America.
Todd Starnes reports for Fox News, July 2, 2014, that a DHS-contracted security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.
Workers at the camp say the security forces call themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans.
A psychiatric counselor said, “There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested. We were under orders not to say anything. It was a very submissive atmosphere. Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”
She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired. “Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”
She said children in the camp had measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat as well as mental and emotional issues. “It was not a good atmosphere in terms of health,” she said. “I would be talking to children and lice would just be climbing down their hair.”
A former nurse at the camp said she was horrified by what she saw: “We have so many kids coming in that there was no way to control all of the sickness – all this stuff coming into the country. We were very concerned at one point about strep going around the base.”
Both the counselor and the nurse said their superiors tried to cover up the extent of the illnesses.
“When they found out the kids had scabies, the charge nurse was adamant – ‘Don’t mention that. Don’t say scabies,’” the nurse recounted. “But everybody knew they had scabies. Some of the workers were very concerned about touching things and picking things up. They asked if they should be concerned, but they were told don’t worry about it.”
The nurse said the lice issue was epidemic – but everything was kept “hush-hush.” “You could see the bugs crawling through their hair,” she said. “After we would rinse out their hair, the sink would be loaded with black bugs.”
The nurse became especially alarmed because their files indicated the children had been transported to Lackland on domestic charter buses and airplanes. “That’s what alerted me,” she said. “Oh, my God. They’re flying these kids around. Nobody knows that these children have scabies and lice. To tell you the truth, there’s no way to control it.”
That means Americans traveling in buses and passenger planes could have been and are exposed to lice and other contagions and infections.
The counselor described the refugee camp as resembling a giant emergency room – off limits to the public: “They did not want the community to know. I initially spoke out at Lackland because I had a concern the children’s mental health care was not being taken care of.” The breaking point came when camp officials refused to hospitalize several children who were suicidal. “I made a recommendation that a child needed to be sent to a psychiatric unit,” the counselor said. “He was reaching psychosis. He was suicidal. Instead of treating him, they sent him off to a family in the United States.”
She said she filed a Child Protective Services report and quit her job: “I didn’t want to lose my license if this kid committed suicide. I was done.”
The counselor kept a detailed journal about what happened during her tenure at the facility. “When people read that journal they are going to be astonished,” she said. “I don’t think they will believe what is going on in America.”
So it was not a great surprise, she said, when she received a call from federal agents demanding that she return to the military base and hand over her journal. She declined. “I didn’t go back to Lackland,” she said.
Both the counselor and the nurse said while they have no regrets, they want to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals.
“They’re going to crush the system,” the nurse said. “We can’t sustain this. They are overwhelming the system and I think it’s a travesty. This is just the beginning. It is a long-term financial responsibility.” (See the neo-Marxist “Cloward-Piven Strategy.”)
Baptist Children’s and Family Services (BCFS) spokeswoman, Executive VP of External Affairs Krista Piferrer said the agency takes “any allegation of malfeasance or inappropriate care of a child very seriously. There are a number of checks and balances to ensure children are receiving appropriate and adequate mental health care.” She said the clinicians are supervised by a federal field specialist from HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement, and that BCFS have 58 medical professionals serving at Lackland.
As for those brown shirts, the BCFS said they are “incident management team personnel” – who happen to wear tan shirts.
ABC10 reports that 40 illegals are being quarantined at California’s Border Patrol Chula Vista Station with active scabies and head lice. The facility will provide them with showers, laundry service and bedding. Another 10 people, mostly children, were taken to local hospitals with unknown illnesses.
