Kristin Tate, Breitbart, June 25, 2014
An unaccompanied minor from Central America who entered the U.S. illegally has been confirmed as having the Swine Flu, also known as the H1N1 flu.
A spokesperson from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that the sick child is at the Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, according to KRGV. 2,000 H1N1 vaccinations are being brought to the air base, where more than 1,000 illegal immigrant minors are currently staying.
This is not the first time health concerns have been raised regarding the illegal immigrant population.
Breitbart Texas previously reported on an outbreak of scabies among the migrants. Several Border Patrol agents contracted the skin infestation.
Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora told Breitbart Texas, “We don’t screen for diseases. All we are is a processing center, so we don’t do that.”
