Monday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” the VP of the Border Patrol Union, Chris Cabrea told host Martha MacCallum “a lot of our guys” are coming down with diseases.
“Coming off the long journey they have been subjected to and then diseases some agents are contracting. We had one get bacterial pneumonia a couple days ago,” Cabrea said. “A lot of our guys are coming down with scabies or lice.”
Cabrea added: “The border patrol is trying to play catch up and we’re having a lot of diseases coming in and some we haven’t seen in decades and we are worried they’ll spread throughout the United States especially if they are being released and have the disease.”
