The PUBLIC can't see any alerts anymore as it now requires an ID/PW that only healthcare providers can get.

Chicken pox doesn't worry me at all but this drug resistant TB does.
How does a PUBLIC Texas Health Alert Network go private ? Apparently there is something someone doesn't want the public to see.

Don't worry, you can forget about TB, Ebola is coming to the US !!

From this date forward the HAN portal will be used only to support private data exchange via the Epi-Data folders and access the NEDSS Base System (NBS). For all other functions you should use the New PHIN Portal.

From the report:

"UAC and family unit illnesses and unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities resulted in unsanitary conditions and exposure to human waste in some holding facilities. Contract cleaners and DHS employees are working to maintain sanitary conditions."

So in addition to babysitting, the Border Patrol agents need to clean the floors after people who are "unfamiliar with toilets"?

I've been to countries (remote area of Greece many decades ago) where the only toilet was a hole in the floor - no seat such as you might find in an outhouse. That's all these people know - a hole in the floor. Shows you how unassimilated into the modern world these illegals really are. Very, very primitive. And, yet, we are required to educate these people?

I've been all over South America, but I was immunized before I went. My bet is you were too. That's not a blanket protection against everything, but it certainly gives us an advantage over the citizens who aren't immunized.

If the job at hand was done right. Border Patrol agents, would not need to be babysitters, nor would they have to be cleaning and maintaining sanitary conditions of any kind.

Nor should we as Americans and our children! should be subjected to these border people because they are all ages, not just kids. The spreading of certain diseases is something we should not put up with.

They are not only kids, some of the teenagers are in gangs, and their are men being passed off as teenagers. We are not all naïve.

Those Americans who chose not to immunize their children may be in for a surprise.

Not to worry. They passed 0bamacare just for that reason.

They intended to do this when they passed the law.

Did you stay where these people live in squalor or the slums and are the poorest of the poor? Stay in the little villages high in the mountains where they live? Just saying, because that's where they are coming from.
