COLONIAS, DISEASE AND DANGER: THIRD WORLD MOMENTUM
America is under an attack via �Third World Momentum�. As more illegal aliens sneak past our borders without being screened for diseases, they disperse throughout our country carrying a backpack full of Center For Disease Control consequences.
Within the past few years, leprosy, tuberculosis, hepatitis, Chagas disease and even malaria have jumped over our borders from Mexico on the backs of an average 10,000 illegal aliens daily, seven days a week and 365 days a year. Our borders are no safer today than before 9/11, and in fact, more dangerous.
The national media-worthy traumas occurred two years ago at Chi-Chi Restaurants in Monaco, Pennsylvania with hepatitis killing patrons who ate there. Later, we read where police, teachers and students tested positive for tuberculosis all around the country. All of it related to illegal aliens crossing into the US without health screening.
Last year, another Third World disease rose its ugly head in Oregon. It may have spread to other states across our nation. It won�t get the play of the deadly attacks of hepatitis or tuberculosis, however, for American children exposed to this disease, it�s a personal nightmare for parents.
Worse, it may take years to manifest itself in the child. By that time, it may be too late. The infection is �neurocysticercosis�, which is caused by the parasite Taenia solium. It�s a tapeworm identified as the cause of this disease in the Southwestern United States.
It is especially rampant in the growing �colonias� (new neighborhoods) stretching from Brownsville, Texas along the Mexican border all the way to San Diego, California. The poorest illegal alien migrants set up shantytowns on the U.S. side of the border. They feature no sanitation of any kind. No toilets. No showers. No clean water. Disease proliferates unchecked. In 1985, 185,000 Mexican and South Americans inhabited those shantytowns. By 1995, they numbered 500,000. By 2000, according to the New York Times, they totaled one million. At the current rate of growth, they will grow to 20 million in the next 16 years. As they expand and move into the United States, they carry many diseases including the parasite Taenia solium.
The New York Times reported, "Colonias are rusted trailers and shacks nailed together from tar paper and packing pallets�without toilets�mounds of trash�attracting multitudes of rats�the lack of sanitation has polluted the underground water to the point that many residents are literally drinking their own waste."
The Times continues, "Colonias are chaotic, contaminated, explosive, fecal, filthy, illegal, putrid, powder kegs, shocking, slums, stench, unsanitary and wrenching."
As one who visited the colonias in El Paso last year and filmed them, I can tell you the New York Times reporter could not adequately describe the kind of horrible, pathetic, disease ridden misery I witnessed. It is so grossly offensive; you want to vomit not only physically but also emotionally. This is another aspect of Third World Momentum stampeding into our country a breakneck speed. It�s happening because most Americans think they are safe, think their Congressmen and Senators are protecting them. They would be deadly incorrect!
The tapeworm had previously been eradicated in U.S. pork via animal husbandry techniques. However, it�s rampant in the Third World. Since that world is immigrating into America at an unprecedented rate of speed, the parasite is moving along with them and passed among people.
One of the greatest tragedies of losing our sovereignty will be the passage of the Free Trade of the Americas Agreement. If you want to help stop that impending nightmare, visit: www.stoptheftaa.org/default.html. The recent cause for alarm stemmed from the death of a 17-year-old girl, who, as an infant, had immigrated with her parents from Mexico to Oregon.
She complained of severe headaches. A CT scan revealed the parasite in her brain tissue. She died. An examination showed the tapeworm had grown in her brain to a point where it killed her.
Dr. John M. Townes, a disease specialist in Oregon noted that pork tapeworm cases in his U.S. study had originated outside the country. Of 61 patients studied, 41 hailed from Mexico. Five others had not traveled abroad. Four were infected by family members.
Townes noted that the tapeworm passes from person to person. If a family member carries a tapeworm, eggs can be transmitted to others through lack of hand washing. "In such cases, the eggs travel to the intestines, where they enter the bloodstream," Townes said. "The microscopic eggs travel throughout the body and lodge in muscle tissue, under the skin, in the eyes, and most frequently, in the brain."
The most sobering aspect of Third World traditions is the lack of handwashing as a normal aspect of personal hygiene and sanitation. Additionally, Third World persons throw their used toilet paper into boxes beside the toilet because most septic systems cannot handle paper.
When they arrive in the U.S., it�s been found that immigrants throw their used TP beside the toilet or into trashcans rather than the toilet. As Dr. Townes noted, "The Oregon Department of Human Services probably understates the extent of the problem."
That brings up the intensifying harmful conditions of this national immigration crisis. To say the least, it�s being understated! A few people died from hepatitis in a Chi-Chi Restaurant. Eight police officers tested positive for tuberculosis in Austin, Minnesota because policemen were exposed while arresting illegal aliens. Another 30 students and four teachers tested positive for tuberculosis in a small Michigan town last fall. More tested positive in Del Rey Beach, Florida. A single case of Malaria was discovered in an illegal immigrant in Brownsville, Texas last fall. Nine confirmed deaths from Chagas Disease slipped by the front page last year in Miami and Los Angeles. Few noted 1.3 million chickens being killed in February, 2002 in California because they were affected by Exotic New Castle disease being imported by illegal aliens bringing their fighting roosters over our borders. Now, this tapeworm is moving out of Mexico into the United States via immigration.
What is it that the men and women in our Congress don�t understand about this immigration crisis and how it affects average Americans? Why won�t this Congress take a stand against lawlessness at our southern borders?
How many more park rangers like Kris Eggle or Border Patrol officers have to be shot by drug smugglers before this Congress lives up to its sworn duty to �defend and protect against enemies both foreign and domestic�? Whose children will be next to die with their brains scrambled by this tapeworm now working its way into our population via immigration? Who will they thank--their individual congressmen, senators or the president?
At 10,000 illegals per night with their children crossing unchecked and unscreened for diseases, they invade our schools, communities, churches and restaurant food supply. It�s a matter of time before you and your family will be affected by this insidious disease invasion caused by Third World Momentum.
