State warns whooping cough epidemic could be worst in 50 years | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times

Ya think the border jumpers have anything to do with the rise and come back of this disease? Americans have been vaccinating for this for years and FORCED to do so..........

I'm in Los Angeles and heard this on the radio this afternoon.

I wouldn't be surprised in the least. Notice they say it's EPIDEMIC proportions.

This is what unchecked rampant illegal immigration produces.

Not only in California, it's in Michigan as well.

has absolutly nothing to do with illegal immagration.

there are thousands of visitors comming to this country every day from all over the world...unscreened.

If anything, that is why Health Professionals want to immunize all children, regardless of immigration status, because there is a far less likelyhood that infectious diseases will take hold here in this country.

Your link has NOTHING to do with those that have immigrated here. Quit trying to take a story and change it.

Baloney, based on the fact that travelers are usually wealthy, have great health care and are TOURISTS this is utter nonsense. You can do better than this.

The poor that come across are the polar opposite of wealthy tourists coming here. Many can have diseases and not even know it. They are poor and their Govt has kicked them to the curb. At least say it's your opinion.

Any child born here gets good health care, it's the Adult Illegals that are the worry.

I call bullsh*t.

There have been millions of legal entries into the United States since the inception of the Pertussis vaccine in the mid-1940s. By the late 1970s, Pertussis declined to an all-time low of 1,010 cases in the entire country.

Pertussis is now an epidemic in California, and is on pace to break a 50-year record for infections and deaths for the year. As of June 15, California had 910 recorded cases of the highly contagious disease, and five babies -- all under 3 months of age -- have died from the disease this year. This year's surge in whooping cough cases is a fourfold increase from the same period last year, when 219 cases were recorded. At least 600 additional cases of pertussis are currently under investigation by local health departments.

California and Arizona are the illegal immigrant capitals of the United States. Illegal immigrants from SOB have a much lower immunization rate than do citizens. Legal immigrants are REQUIRED to be immunized before they are allowed into the country unless they can prove prior immunization. Hell, I had to be immunized before I could start four year college simply because my pediatrician died 20 years ago and I couldn't produce records of immunization.

In recent years, health professionals have tried to alert government authorities and the general public about certain of the newly emergent health dangers. During the Reagan Administration, J. Michael McGinnis, deputy assistant secretary of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, warned of problems in the American Southwest originating in Mexico, “Along the border we have a prevalence of diseases that we shouldn’t be seeing much of in modern Western society. We have higher rates of such things as malaria,tuberculosis, measles, rubella, rabies, and pertussis (whooping cough).” He added that physicians trained in the United States where such diseases are not prevalent, have difficulty recognizing them in new patients.

Health professionals have been warning of this for years, but greed, the desire for cheap labor, and the never-ending, optimistic prospect of millions of brand spanking new Democrat voters, have caused the powers that be to turn a deaf ear to the health concerns of those in the know. Never mind that diseases, heretofore eradicated in the United States, are now number one with a bullet on all the communicable disease hit parades.

Rampant, unchecked, illegal immigration: rise in PREVENTABLE contagious childhood diseases as well as tuberculosis.

Coincidence?

I think not.
