Because Obama Left the Border Open Something Deadlier than Ebola Found Its Way In…
Obama demonstrated what could be called a most lackluster response to a serious crisis when he allowed the Ebola virus into the U.S.
His actions to refuse to stop flights into America from Western Africa led to Ebola’s emergence here in the U.S.
But what isn’t being discussed nearly as much as it should be is how Obama’s failure to close the American-Mexico border has likely contributed to the emergence of another super-deadly virus.
One that has killed far more people than Ebola has so far.
The virus is known as EV-D68. It’s an enterovirus similar to polio, but slightly different in structure.
So far thousands of men, women and children have fallen ill with the virus and as many as nine people have died since contracting it.
Top health officials have made connections to the EV-D68 virus that has shown up in numerous locations in the U.S. to the same EV-D68 virus from Central America.
As the Daily Caller reports:
So far, that virus has been found in nine American kids who died from illness, has apparently inflicted unprecedented polio-like paralysis in roughly 50 kids, and has put hundreds of young American kids into hospital emergency wards and intensive care units throughout more than 40 states.
A series of government researchers, health experts and academics refused to comment, or else urged self-censorship, when they were pressed by The Daily Caller for statistical and scientific data that would exonerate Obama and his deputies.
As illegals have surged over the border, health officials knew this kind of fallout was possible. And that’s why they’re keeping quiet about it now. Because the connection is obvious.
Enteroviruses infect anywhere from 10-15 million people in the U.S. a year. But what’s different about this particular strain is its origins are likely from people who came here illegally.
The path of illegals from Central American countries as well as Mexico has been well documented, and with 100s upon 1,000s of them making it over the border every day, the likelihood the virus came in with them is extremely high.
If nothing else, this kind of health debacle demonstrates how Obama’s ineptitude isn’t just maddening, it’s deadly.
