When people apply to go somewhere legally, there are all kinds of safeguards that are put into place for their safety and the safety of the people that are already there.
For example, recently I have been on the YouTube kick of watching videos of people that had spent time working at South Pole research facilities and there were folks that had tried for a couple of years to get in and couldn’t get the job even though they were the right person for the job.
The reason that one of them gave is that in the previous six months they had some manner of contagious illness that the company would be hiring them wanted them to apply the next season because not enough time had passed for it to be considered safe in their eyes to have a person there that wouldn’t end up getting the whole station sick.
You used to see that all the time when folks would come through Ellis Island for example. In the film Godfather 2, this is illustrated when Vito Corleone is quarantined before he is allowed entry to the United States to make sure he doesn’t have some kind of contagious illness.
Liberals today would let anyone no matter how much or what they were coughing up.

United States Customs and Border Protection revealed Tuesday that they are treating as many as fifty illegal immigrants per day for “serious illnesses” requiring urgent medial care, including pneumonia, influenza, and even tuberculosis.
The Washington Times reports that border patrol authorities are seeing a steep uptick in the number of sick immigrants attempting to cross the border, and in particular an uptick in the number of sick children. “Most of those in need of care are children, and a staggering 28 percent are under age 5,” according to the Times.
The numbers come from a study undertaken by CBP after two children, a 7-year-old girl and and an 8-year-old boy, died while in border patrol custody, apparently from serious illnesses or infections contracted before they were taken into border patrol custody. The study sought to analyze how sick asylum seekers are handled within the U.S. Customs and Border Protection system and to help identify and patch holes in its care system.
“Between Dec. 22 and Sunday, the agency reported 451 cases referred to doctors or other providers, including 259 children,” USA Today reports. “The ill migrants have been arriving with all kinds of ailments, many with flu or pneumonia that can be particularly pervasive and dangerous this time of year. Seventeen migrants have been hospitalized, including six children, according to the agency.”
A full review of the situation also reportedly revealed that many migrants are ill when they leave their home countries and many make the decision to undertake the journey anyway.
