The flu is a different story altogether. It's widely know the flu vaccine has a higher failure rate.

It’s not discussed because it’s not politically correct to talk about things like this and also it’s considered racist to even wonder about such a thing.

We need to move these 'migrants' straight into these wealthy elitist neighborhoods and let them camp out with the politicians in DC. They'll get used to all-night beer parties and innards boiling all day in the yard pretty quickly, not to mention the spread of measles in their area. Wonder if they'll keep their "We don't care where you come from, we're glad you're our neighbor" signs up?

Default Why is no one talking about the vaccination/disease status of undocumented migrants?

When does the media ever talk about the effects of the migrant population, such as on the low income job market, the housing market and rents, schools and hospitals, etc.? The corporations and billionaires who own the media don't want them to talk about it so they don't.

Having said that, I do not think you can blame illegal aliens for the outbreak of diseases in the United States. Sure they might be part of the problem but we live in a global economy now where people and trade are going back and forth all the time.

Yep, I sure am. I've lived it in Los Angeles. Clean that spot off your "We don't care where you're from..." sign.

The vaccination rates are very good for Mexico and central America. You should be more afraid the US anti vax movement.

They are the same crowd pushing for open borders, so yes, we're concerned all around.

You can post maps and opinions until the cows come home, but here is what the CDC says about these outbreaks:
https://www.cdc.gov/measles/cases-outbreaks.html
"Measles outbreaks (defined as 3 or more cases) are currently ongoing in 2019 in the following jurisdictions:

New York State, Rockland County
New York City
Washington
California, LA County
Texas, El Paso

These outbreaks are linked to travelers who brought measles back from other countries such as Israel, Ukraine, and the Philippines, where large measles outbreaks are occurring."


Open the link and learn a little more.

Here's more from the American Association of Pediatrics:
https://www.aappublications.org/content/news-measles
"CDC: Travelers to Europe should protect themselves from measles
June 17, 2019 -- The continent has seen a spike in cases in 2018 and 2019 that has contributed to outbreaks in the U.S. where the case count just reached 1,044. "
