The Washington Times this morning is reporting a new threat from the south . Actually, it’s an old threat and one we’ve talked about here before. Part of border control after all, is disease control;
A Mexican national infected with a highly contagious form of tuberculosis crossed the U.S. border 76 times and took multiple domestic flights in the last year, according to Customs and Border Protection interviews and documents obtained by The Washington Times.
The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency was warned by health officials on April 16 that the frequent traveler was infected, but it took the Homeland Security officials more than six weeks to issue a May 31 alert to warn its own border inspectors, according to Homeland Security sources who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution. Homeland Security took one more week to tell its own Transportation Security Agency.
Guy’s name, apparently, is Amado Isidro Armendariz Amaya .
Why would it have taken that long to respond? I can think of one reason; the guys Mexican. It’s not politically correct to arrest Mexicans who cross the border illegally. Even if they do make typhoid Mary look like a really sweet date.
