Here’s a shocker: the “most transparent administration” ever has not been forthcoming with the American people.
Apparently, it’s not just the threat of immigrants importing terrorism the Obama administration refuses to admit to the people it serves. A newly-revealed memo from the Centers for Disease Control reveals the agency warned of diseases the flood of immigration coming across the border is bringing — despite the Obama administration’s public statements dismissing possible health and safety risks introduced by tens of thousands of children illegally entering the U.S.
A new Judicial Watch report reveals that the Centers for Disease Control warned government employees that the unaccompanied minors flooding across the border in recent years are carrying diseases, a claim dismissed by immigration activists.
“We might as well plan on many of the kids having TB,” reads a June 26, 2014 e-mail from a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) environmental health scientist, Alaric C. Denton, to employees preparing to go to the border to deal with the influx.
“Most of these kids are not immunized, so we need to make sure all our staff are immunized,” Denton adds in the email, going on to note that “some of these kids are not really kids they are young adults, and we should be wary of personal safety.”
The conservative government watchdog group obtained the email after suing the Department of Health and Human Services for the records, some of the records the organization obtained were redacted.
As Judicial Watch notes in its report, the “documents contradict the Obama administration’s public statements dismissing possible health and safety risks created by the tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC)” apprehended illegally entering the U.S.
