GOP Rep: Mysterious Child-Paralyzing Enterovirus Tied to Illegal Alien Influx

In an interview that aired on Huntsville, AL CBS affiliate WHNT, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) emphasized the need for the United States to get a grasp on its immigration policy, particularly because of the potential for the spread of infectious diseases brought into the country due to uncontrolled illegal immigration.

According to Brooks, not only is the Ebola threat cause for concern due to immigration, but the mysterious enterovirus D68 that is causing paralysis for some children throughout the United States is as well.

“Let me emphasize something in context to your question,” Brooks said. “Immigration is part of Ebola, is a part of this new virus – I say ‘new’ in quotations marks because it’s relatively new to the degree we’ve seen it in the United States of America that taking the lives of American children, that is causing partial or complete paralysis of American children. All of this is related to immigration because some of these diseases are coming from abroad. By way of example, there was a study in 2013 – I think it was called the enterovirus that is causing the paralysis and death of young children in America – that thousands of residents of Central American countries were found with this illness over a year ago in 2013. And because the southern border is not being protected, one has to wonder whether this sudden surge of illegal alien children along with the normal numbers of illegal aliens coming into America might have contributed to the spread of this disease, which heretofore was not very widespread in the United States of America. So all of it’s tied together.”
