Besides the psychological, physical, and sexual abuse visited on many of the young illegals that make the journey to this country, what dangers are there of this mass migration?

Reshaping the political landscape from capitalism to statism will undoubtedly result as more and more people with socialist and communist ideologies – who will vote for the same types of government that are extant in their counties of origin – are distributed throughout this nation. But this process of reshaping will take at least a decade to peak. More immediate is the stress that these new needy immigrants will visit on the welfare systems of the communities to which they settle, as the continuous process of redistribution of private property from the  “Haves” to the new “Have-Nots” marches on. But despite the looming disasters described above, perhaps the most insidious calamity to soon appear in a town near you is the breakdown of public health.

Yes, not nearly as exciting or headline commanding as the moniker of “humanitarian crisis” is the under-appreciated threat of  new disease that will absolutely result  from government-sanctioned deposition of unscreened illegals into otherwise disease-free populations. Not just disease that leads to discomfort, but also disease that leads to death.

Not meaning to announce the end of the world, I think you should be reminded that Total Drug Resistant (TDR) tuberculosis (TB) – TB that can’t be stopped – has been discovered in Iran, Italy, and India.  Each victim of TB, whether carrying a strain that is completely sensitive or TDR ,  infects an average of 10 to 15 others every year – typically through sneezing or coughing. Now, I realize that these cases of TDR were discovered in counties on the other side of the ocean, but you should know that  in 2009 a very interesting case of  TB was discovered in Florida.

The Florida case involved a Peruvian teenager who was infected with a particularly resistant strain of TB at home in South America, but diagnosed while visiting Florida.  The young Peruvian was successfully treated for a year and a half with experimentally high doses of medicines not typically used for TB, costing the state of Florida tax payers about $500,000. That was just one case of one particular disease.

So, is unabated immigration dangerous? Maybe, but for sure it is expensive!
