Far cry from a hole in the ground, a bush, a large tree, or a bucket. These people live very primitive lives and many speak with an ancient dialect. Something like indigenous tribes.

And the emphasis is on the children from Central America crossing the border--people from other countries all over the world continue to cross the border. People have been identified as being from Pakistan, the Middle East, Ukraine and many other countries.

From the newsmag Homeland Security Today:

"According to CBP data, citizens of West African nations in the Ebola hot zones have been caught trying to enter the US through the Rio Grande Valley.

This is a potentially serious concern, officials expressed to Homeland Security Today, saying illegal aliens from African nations caught trying to enter the United States could be carrying the highly lethal and infectious Ebola virus given the virus’s widespread outbreak across West Africa."

[quote=HappyTexan;35902494]The PUBLIC Texas Health Alert Network went private about 3 weeks ago.
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.[/quote]

Agreed. We (generally) vaccinate against chicken pox here now, we don't against TB, though there is a vaccine for it that is commonly used in Latin America. My thought is that we might need to add that vaccine to the schedule, and I've thought that for a while (before this crisis), since contagious diseases don't recognize legal/illegal and it has been an issue before.

What diseases do you know of that people from Pakistan, the Middle East, Ukraine and many other countries are being brought in to the US?

The quote (without a link) doesn't mention people from Pakistan, the ME, Ukraine and many other countries. Was that your opinion or a fact? Any links?? It does refer to African nations and Ebola. The countries you refer to are not African nations.

I am not stating that people from those countries are bringing in diseases, simply that it's more than just Central American children coming over the border.

That information comes from the Border Patrol report which breaks down how many people come over the border each year and from which countries. Anyone not from Mexico is referred to as OTM (other than Mexico) and is identified by country.

The report was available to the public on their website every year and I've read it several times. Around 2012 it suddenly became no longer available to the public and I can't even find the prior reports. I doubt the people stopped crossing the border just because the Border Patrol stopped sharing the information.

I'm finding a lot of government reports have become "unavailable" since 2012.
What I find is 2009-2010 data and when I look for more recent there is nothing, absolutely nothing.

Ok, here is the page that will show all illegals apprended from 2002-2012 and which country they were coming from. It's a main page, so you'd need to click on each chart (Excel chart) individually. This of course only details the people they caught, and I don't know what the percentage is of people caught/people successfully entering the country.

They are only starting to add the 2013 data, so I think it may be more a slow-to-update thing, rather than anything else.
