Potential transfer of medical conditions is worsening on the border. Illegal immigrants are bringing over severe cases of disease, but medial staffers were told to keep quiet or face arrest, Fox News reports.
While some reports were already in the air about diseases such as scabies, measles, tuberculosis and dengue fever, it’s much worse. (RELATED: Doctor Says Illegal Immigration’s Causing ‘Public Health Crisis’ [VIDEO])
Despite threats from the government-contracted security force, medical staffers opened up about the worsening medical conditions and the threat they pose to Americans.
Fox News commentator and columnist Todd Starnes spoke with some of the medical staffers about the conditions in Lackland Air Force Base, the housing facility for illegals in San Antonio, Texas. They told Starnes that Americans should be very uneasy about the government’s secrecy in regards to the diseases and housing situations of the illegal immigrants.
“There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told Starnes. “We were under orders not to say anything.”
The counselor also told Starnes that the government security forces call themselves the “brown shirts.” They have strict rules for workers in the facilities. All forms of communication are prohibited, and if the authorities catch someone with a cell phone, they are immediately dismissed.
“Everyone was paranoid,” the counselor said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”
The “brown shirts” want to keep the health conditions a secret, but the workers said the conditions need to be exposed. Children and families are coming into the facilities with measles, scabies, additional viral diseases and mental health problems. And they are doing a terrible job of handling the medical conditions. The counselor even said her superiors ignored her diagnosis for a suicidal child, sending him to a family instead of treatment. That’s when she realized she had to leave.
“I made a recommendation that a child needed to be sent to a psychiatric unit,” the counselor told Starnes. “He was reaching psychosis. He was suicidal. Instead of treating him, they sent him off to a family in the United States.”
“I didn’t want to lose my license if this kid committed suicide,” she continued. “I was done.”
Cleanliness is also an issue. The counselor told Starnes that she could literally see lice “climbing down their hair.”
Starnes also talked to a facility nurse, and she said the operational leaders are trying to keep the crisis under wraps.
“When they found out the kids had scabies, the charge nurse was adamant – ‘Don’t mention that. Don’t say scabies,’” the nurse said. “But everybody knew they had scabies. Some of the workers were very concerned about touching things and picking things up. They asked if they should be concerned, but they were told don’t worry about it.”
Despite the threats of arrest, these medical staffers felt they were obliged to voice their concern after finding out that these children and families were being moved via public transportation.
“That’s what alerted me,” the nurse said. “Oh, my God. They’re flying these kids around. Nobody knows that these children have scabies and lice. To tell you the truth, there’s no way to control it.”
The counselor told Starnes she has kept a detailed journal of events from her time at the facility, and federal agents are demanding she hand it over. She refused.
“When people read that journal they are going to be astonished,” she said. ‘I don’t think they will believe what is going on in America.”
