Border Patrol Confirms Second Illegal Immigrant Child with Swine Flu

On Saturday, a second illegal immigrant youth was confirmed to have swine flu, which is known as the H1N1 virus.

According to Action 4 News in Texas, “Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council #3307 Chris Cabrera confirmed the cases late Saturday morning.” Cabrera told the outlet “that one case was confirmed at the Brownsville Border Patrol Station and another at the Fort Brown Border Patrol station, also located in Brownsville.”

The first case of swine flu was confirmed last week, and Cabrera said that “an estimated 120 people are being isolated at the two stations because they were exposed to the” illegal immigrant youth who had swine flu. Cabrera said that, “if someone is released and they are symptomatic, it could spread rapidly” 

Cabrera also said that medical teams are screening illegal immigrant youth who are flooding across the border “for lice, scabies and chicken pox” and “not everyone gets medical clearance.”

Breitbart’s Dr. Susan Berry has reported that medical specialists and doctors are concerned about other virulent diseases like tuberculosis and the Norovirus. 

Dr. Jane Orient, “an internal medicine specialist and the Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS),” warned that the country was “one outbreak” away from having to deal with “an overwhelming public health crisis” because of the influx of illegal immigrant children coming across the border from Central America.
