Leprosy is a very scarey diesease. I'm sure they don't want people to panic. And it is refuted by the city officials as well.

Check out these google images of Leprosy. But be warned they are not pretty pictures.

TB is also on the uprise in our country.
Yes -- ultra cheap third world labor has expensive third world diseases.

The corporations and employers bringing in these people should be forced to start paying the high costs of them. Let their employers have to pay the costs of medical treatment -- they wanted them, they should pay the costs of them.

A time bomb waiting to go off... So in actuality, by our government failing to protect us, it is in effect waging a form of terrorism on us, as LEGAL citizens.
This is why we need to close our borders.

Who to blame for this??? Maybe the United States???

Just for the record, that Leprosy did not come from Mexico, it came from the Marshall Islands.
Marshall Islands immigrants in Springdale, Arkansas: leprosy, VD, TB

Which are a set of Islands where the United States tested Nuclear Weapons...

Quote:
Between 1946 and 1958 the United States tested 66 nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands,[1] including the largest nuclear test the United States ever conducted,
U.S. Nuclear Testing Program in the Marshall Islands

I can see that the citizens of the Marshall Islands have long suffered from U.S nuclear test and probably have a compromised immune system....Marshall Islands have the most counts of Leprosy in the world!!!

So where to place the blame for that??? I'll await your comments.

I believe you pointed that out in an earlier post, however it does not decrease the fact that many diseases once under control in the US are on the rise once again, mostly because of the illegals here, no matter where they came from. People from many other countries use the unprotected Mexican/US border to enter our country.

What I don't understand is (knowing the immigration laws in Mexico are very strict) How do they(the illegals) make all the way through Mexico to our Southern Border with out being caught in Mexico and dealt with there? Could it be that Mexico knows they are just "passing through" and don't care that they are aiding others to break their own laws on their way here? It isn't going to stop anytime soon, because our own politicians are not going to enforce border control. I hope more States follow OK AZ and a few others, that is the only way IMO we are going to win this immigration issue.

I believe this article has been proven inaccurate. But here is a link to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) on leprosy and the figures reported in recent years:

Disease Listing, Hansen's Disease, Technical Information | CDC Bacterial, Mycotic Diseases

Persisting in repeating mis-information doesn't make it good info!

Leprosy outbreak causes concerns in Northwest Arkansas

SPRINGDALE - The medical community is warning the public: a leprosy outbreak in Springdale could blossom into an epidemic, if something isn’t done soon.



Doctors say at least nine cases of leprosy have been confirmed in Springdale. Local doctors say they would be shocked by even one case of leprosy in their entire career, so they say something must be done soon, in order to stop leprosy’s spread.

Springdale MD Jennifer Bingham says, “my initial response was: I am shocked. I am shocked we are seeing this. It’s a true reason to be very worried.”

I reallty don't think that has anything to do with the illegal issues.


My brother was working in the Marshall Islands for Litton Industries in the early 80's He doesn't have Leprosy.

I worked with parasitic diseases for 12 years, including this bacteria, leprosy, and I didn't get it.

It is a fact that they do not immunize their children like we do, they are bringing allot of childhood diseases into our country and passing them off to our kids in schools.

They are not required to have the shots which is bull.

They are bringing diseases that we thought we had beaten many years ago.
