Apparently hundreds of illegal aliens from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa, have been dumped in San Antonio, TX, with little or no notification of city officials.

Outbreaks of the deadly disease Ebola in the Congo have been confirmed in the last several months by the Centers for Disease Control:

https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2...ola-congo.html

When a person LEGALLY immigrates to the United States, a routine part of his processing is a medical exam, to determine if he is carrying any diseases.

Have these illegal aliens had such an exam? How do we know if any are carrying the Ebola virus? Except if they get sick and die a few weeks or a month later, after they disappear into the U.S. population?

Shouldn't we do something to make sure that all persons immigrating to this country, get that medical exam? And keep out the ones who haven't had one?

"When we called Border Patrol to confirm, they said, 'yea another 200 to 300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio,'" Bridger said.

"The plan was 350 of them would travel from San Antonio to Portland. When we reached out to Portland Maine they said, 'Please don't send us any more. We're already stretched way beyond our capacity," Bridger said.

"So we're working with them [the migrants] now to identify other cities throughout the United States where they can go and begin their asylum seeking process."

I wonder if it is only a matter of time because we have a epidemic and pandemic here in America from all this unvetted immigration.

I am planning on moving to a small city or town in the near future that doesn't appeal to these groups.

Most of the migrants are going to end up in very urban, very overwhelmed cities anyway.

Border Patrol Agents Apprehend Large Group in Del Rio

Release Date: May 31, 2019

First large group from Africa apprehended

DEL RIO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station apprehended a large group of 116 individuals Thursday.

“This large group from Africa further demonstrates the complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border.”

Agents performing line watch operations apprehended the group after they illegally crossed the Rio Grande into the U.S. around 10:30 p.m.

This is the first large group apprehended in the Del Rio Sector and the first large group of people from Africa – including nationals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo - apprehended on the Southwest border this year.

Agents have encountered 182 large groups of more than 100 individuals across the Southwest border so far this fiscal year.

BTW, Democrats still say that there are no significant problems at the border. Or that reports like these are just a "manufactured crisis".

But they are very concerned that Donald Trump may think that Mars is part of the moon.

Sadly, It will take a 911 type of tragedy before democrats admit to a border crisis and work with republicans to solve it.

The new wall needs an automatic rubber bullet machine gun with a motion sensor.

Because for Dems, the fear of being called "racist" is much higher a priority than the health and safety of their families, friends and community.

Yup. If Africans are sneaking across from Mexico to Texas, members of ISIS can do it too - and probably already are.
