When are people going to jut admit that these trans-national refugees are welfare shoppers and economic migrants?
Reportedly, they take connecting flights to Ecuador. Then they travel through the jungles of Columbia on foot, then Central America, then Mexico. The journey takes months.

Reportedly, most present at legal border crossings to the US to claim asylum.

It is not clear to me why the US continues to accept any asylum seekers. Trump controls the numbers and source regions after conferring with the Senate.

The CDC has announced that there has been a large outbreak of Ebola there. How many of these people have undergone the (required) medical exam mandated by law, before they entered the United States?

Or are we still just hoping that nobody caught it in the particular regions they came from? Without even knowing which regions they came from (except by guessing and hoping)?

Why would anyone be offended by their native garb, of all things?

It's the end to any social currency they might have. It is to become an "unperson." An expulsion from the church of Progressivism and their circle of friends and professional contacts who all worship at the same altar, with the same dogma, speech codes and behavior rules.


It's the modern day Salem with witch-hunts. Only now its racist and "white supremacist" hunts. To deny you are a racist once accused (especially by one of the religion's high priestesses - a woman of color) ... is to admit you are a racist. The only way to forgiveness is to admit you're a racist and then work hard to find your way back into the fold by doing good works of atonenment and apology.

Criticizing what's happening at the border... even admitting there's a problem or agreeing with Trump's very sensible immigration reforms... that's definitely going to get the village talking about how you very well might be a racist.


Pretty whacked world these people inhabit, really.
unfortunately accurate.

Trump has quadrupled the numbers in order to make the case for the wall, and there is a good chance the numbers are not even true.

Don't worry about immigrants. Trump made a secret deal with Mexico that only he knows about. Reminiscent of Nixon's 'secret plan to end the Vietnam War'. Shhhhh--it is so secret that even Mexico doesn't know about it.

BTW, the thread title, ripped from the headlines of Twitter, is massively misleading.

They don't need the exam because like I previously stated, 1. Ebola outbreak is in a super-isolated place of D.R.C. These people are wealthy/educated (by D.R.C standards) they aren't from regions where Ebola is common those people know zilch about America as in zilch. Even the regions where Ebola is common we are talking hundreds of cases for a super isolated region. It's akin to banning Americans because of the measles outbreak.

Ebola is a fast acting disease it would have killed them long before they came to America. The Congolese Jungle is a Jungle, the closest biome in terms of difficulty of travel in the U.S is the Alaska Tundra or Rocky Mountains, except with zero passes.

If the Congolese Jungle existed in the U.S it's so dense that likely an interstate system would never have been built through it as tropical diseases to extremely slow process in general would have killed most efforts to pave a highway across.

Ebola contrary to popular belief isn't a new disease and as existed for decades. The main reason no one cared is because before it reached Liberia which is built much more similarly to coastal America, it was found essentially only in the Congolese Jungle.

So no they don't have Ebola or hey would have died already, and like I said in an earlier post, their is a zero percent chance that they even know someone with Ebola.

Th Ebola outbreak in The Congo happens in the most rural parts of one f the most isolated and rural countries even by Africa's standards. these villages don't even know what a "U.S" is let alone how to get there. Most likely these are big city people from Kinshasa who speak multiple languages and likely French or less likely English, as that's the only way Angolans, Congolese and Cameroonians would even be able to communicate with each other.

For example for most of the villages affected by Ebola their is no navigable road that leads to these villages from Kinshasa the capital. To get there without a plane is similar to the Journey these guys took.

improbable without tons of money.
if they have money in their home country, they would be qualified for B2 visa and get to US via an air-conditioned commercial jet. I have coworkers who are TDYing at the Southern border and they are confirming Ebola cases with some of the migrants.
