How Disease-Carrying Foreigners Endanger U.S.

Erik Rush, WorldNetDaily, May 21, 2009

In September of 1992, an Associated Press article entitled “On The Trail of Tapeworm” appeared in newspapers across America. It chronicled numerous occurrences of infections of Taenia solium, or the pork tapeworm, amongst members of orthodox Jewish communities in New York City. The syndrome given rise by the infection, called cysticercosis, is marked by brain lesions, seizures and other neurological manifestations, and ultimately death. The disorder is treatable but, unfortunately, extremely difficult to diagnose. The aforementioned brain lesions are caused by the tapeworm larvae themselves, which anchor themselves to blood vessels within the brain.

One of the questions that arose when the Centers for Disease Control finally became involved was this: How would such a parasite, which is contracted through the ingestion of improperly cooked, infected pork, insinuate itself into a population of individuals who are prohibited from eating pork?

{snip} Schantz [Dr. Peter Schantz, an authority on parasitic diseases at the CDC] had been involved in the initial diagnosis of an 18-year-old man in the western United States–also an orthodox Jew–with cysticercosis.

In the case of this young man, as well as all of the subsequent cases with which Schantz and others became familiar, the infections were traced to workers from Mexico and Central America that the orthodox Jewish families had employed. These had apparently become infected in their home countries–where standards of meat inspection and preparation fall below that of the U.S.–and passed the parasite on to the host families after using the toilet and failing to wash their hands.


{snip} One might also think that a media firestorm would have ensued over foreign workers infecting Americans with brain worms via their own feces. That didn’t happen either. Between government negligence, a squeamish press and the tendency of these workers toward transience, the infections spread, Dr. Schantz later explained, across the U.S., all the way to the East Coast.


It is likely that H1N1 spread like wildfire throughout Mexico (where the first cases were reported) because of poor hygiene. Why might those in Mexico practice poor hygiene? Ignorance. Why might they be ignorant? An abysmal educational system. Why do they have an abysmal educational system? Because their government is corrupt to the core. It’s one of the chief reasons people from Mexico and Central America come to the U.S. in the first place.

In my 2007 book, “Annexing Mexico: Solving the Border Problem Through Annexation and Assimilation,” I covered in-depth the emerging dilemma as regards illegal and poorly screened immigrants routinely carrying diseases–some of them life-threatening–into the U.S.

Some of these, such as Dengue fever, are truly horrific. This mosquito-borne illness (which is on the rise in Mexico), like the dreaded Ebola, causes fever, headache, muscle and joint pain, rashes, nausea, vomiting, internal bleeding and bloody diarrhea.

None of this is widely discussed in the establishment press, however, nor is it considered a major issue in predominant political circles. {snip}
