The Washington Times (emphasis added in all excerpts):
“Border authorities are referring 50 people a day for urgent medical care, including tuberculosis, flu and even pregnant women about to give birth, a top official said Monday, saying it’s unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.”
“Most of those in need of care are children, and a staggering 28 percent are under age 5, having been dragged along for the trip by parents who in many cases are hoping to use the children as a shield against speedy deportation from the U.S.”
NOT A CRISIS?
Of the 60,000 illegal immigrants caught/encountered at border crossings in December, over 22,000 were kids. “Since Dec. 22 there have been 450 medical cases that needed treatment, including flu, parasites, blood infections, abscesses, tuberculosis and pneumonia…” How can this be defined as anything but a crisis?
President Trump has (rightly) demanded that Congress do their job.
Failing that, with executive action he must do what’s necessary to stop this madness.
