Monday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” the VP of the Border Patrol Union, Chris Cabrea told host Martha MacCallum “a lot of our guys” are coming down with diseases.
“Coming off the long journey they have been subjected to and then diseases some agents are contracting. We had one get bacterial pneumonia a couple days ago,” Cabrea said. “A lot of our guys are coming down with scabies or lice.”
Cabrea added: “The border patrol is trying to play catch up and we’re having a lot of diseases coming in and some we haven’t seen in decades and we are worried they’ll spread throughout the United States especially if they are being released and have the disease.”
The flood of contagious illegal aliens has other Border Patrol agents sounding the alarm:
“U.S. Border Patrol agents are worried that what’s coming over into the U.S. could harm everyone. “This time the focus is not on the women and children that are crossing over in droves. “Agents are worrying about a viral outbreak. “We are sending people everywhere. The average person doesn’t know what’s going on down here,” said Border Patrol agent and Rio Grande Valley Union representative Chris Cabrera.
“Our Border Patrol agents check on us all the time and they told us about the outbreak of scabies,” Garcia said. “Cabrera says the sickness doesn’t stop at scabies. “We are starting to see chicken pox, MRSA staph infections, we are starting to see different viruses,” Cabrera said.
“Garcia believes the viruses are not confined to the detention center. Not long ago, a group of border-crossers came knocking on his door. “It was a 7-month-old baby. It was shaking, it had a fever,” Garcia said.
Dozens of Border Patrol agents have already contracted scabies and he fears it will spread quickly.
“It’s contagious, we are transporting people to different parts of the state and different parts of the country,” Cabrera said.”
