Let me get this straight. You guys are blaming this TB scare on illegal immigrants even though the article makes no effort to correlate illegal immigrants to this scare? Are we assuming things?

Hahahahahaha. Wow. This is classic . I'm subscribing to this thread. "Illegals caused the TB scared at kaiser hospital!!"

Reporter: "How have you come to this conclusion?"

"We'll we have no solid evidence. Its just that I'm anti-illegal and we've blamed illegals for a lot of stuff why not this?"

Now reporting: "We've just declared we're now a sanctuary city"

"And you wait until now to tell us that there is a TB out break?"

Numbers. Common sense dictates that 20-30 million people entering a country without medical screening will produce a higher percentage of individuals with communicable diseases, than would 1-3 million. In particular, if the illegals originate from third-world countries.

So a city becoming a sanctuary city automatically means theres going to be higher cases of TB?
And the numbers are not 20-30.

No, that is not what I said. I made a general statement regarding the massive numbers of third-world illegals currently residing in this country. If you believe the 12 million fantasy figure, so be it. There are probably 12 million illegals living in California alone.

How many illegals did they estimate were in the country during the 1986 “final” amnesty? How many did they later discover were actually here? Answer: Three times as many as predicted!

When my father in law was going through hs cancer diagnosis-he was given a T.B. test. The doctor told him that the reason he was being given a T.B. test was that is was on the rise due to the huge increase of illegal aliens from SOB. Those were the doctors words- a trained medical professional.
