Sick kids on the border + sick kids in our schools = Criminally negligent leadership
Does Obama Care About Our Kids?
This summer I heard from agents who were dealing with the children on the border that they and their colleagues were getting sick with symptoms that sound remarkably similar to the virus that is now being reported spreading around the country , especially in our schools. The Federal agents were told to keep quiet and were threatened with retaliation by management in the region and were met with silence when they tried to report it to superiors in DC. Here is one open source report of such retaliation, I know of other agents who have reported directly to Congress which are even more damning. One agent who became seriously sick was denied treatment and the right to even report his sickness, he reported instances of feces being thrown at agents by the “kids” in protest of their detention. Where was this? Here.
As Sharyl Attkisson notes below the outbreak of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) may be unrelated to the Administration shipping kids all over the country but the problem for Administration officials, and state and local officials who were forced/bribed to accept them, is that the way the kids were screened and shipped makes it impossible for the Administration to credibly deny that there is NO link.
Excerpt from Sharyl Attkisson article:
Polio-like illness claims fifth life in U.S.
“The CDC hasn’t suggested reasons for the current uptick or its origin. Without that answer, some question whether the disease is being spread by the presence of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children from Central America admitted to the U.S. in the past year.
The origin could be entirely unrelated.
However, a study published in Virology Journal, found EV-D68 among some of the 3,375 young, ill people tested in eight Latin American countries, including the Central American nations of El Salvador and Nicaragua, in 2013. (See Fig. 3)
Though the U.S. government is keeping secret the locations of the illegal immigrant children, there are significant numbers of them in both cities in which the current outbreak was first identified, Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois, according to local advocates and press reports.
CDC list of states with confirmed EV-D68 cases
The EV-D68 outbreak was first recognized after Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri notified CDC on August 19 of an increase in severe respiratory illnesses. Four days later, on August 23, the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital notified CDC of a similar increase.”
