The migrant caravan that has now reached the southern border is already providing perfect cover for criminals and other undesirables to enter the United States, but there is another problem that has been completely ignored by the media.
A considerable portion of the “refugees” are carrying a variety of dangerous infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and chickenpox.
This according to a shocking report from officials in Tijuana, the Mexican city that has been overtaken by migrants as they prepare to force a confrontation with the Trump administration.
According to a report that cites the Tijuana Health Department, over one-third of those who are now in the city are receiving treatment for a variety of maladies and the number possibly will be even higher with the migrants living in abysmal conditions of squalor which are the perfect environment for breeding disease.

Migrants who came with the caravan are suffering from respiratory infections, tuberculosis, chickenpox and other serious health issues, Tijuana’s Health Department warned on Thursday morning.
The spokesman told Fox News that out of 6,000 migrants currently residing in the city, over a third of them (2,267) are being treated for health-related issues.
There are three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox, the spokesman said.
At least 101 migrants have lice and multiple instances of skin infections, the department’s data shows.
There’s also a threat of Hepatitis outbreak due to unsanitary conditions, the spokesman said. The thousands of migrants are being sheltered at the Benito Juarez Sports Complex near the San Ysidro U.S.-Mexico Port of Entry, despite the place being capable of providing for 1,000 people.
The location also has only 35 portable bathrooms. A sign reading “No Spitting” was put up, as coughing and spitting by migrants are rampant in the shelter.
Pointing out what should be a concerning matter for Americans is naturally denounced as racism by leftists to whom winning on open borders has become a zero-sum game.

When Fox’s Laura Ingraham dared to say:
All these do-gooder liberal types, they would never, never live in a neighborhood that is similar to what the Tijuana residents have to live in right now. Would they ever live there? I don’t think Chevy Chase, Maryland; Bethesda, Maryland; Georgetown; McLean, Virginia; 14th street, tony neighborhood of Washington. When they go up to their condos and with their doormen, they don’t have to worry about the crime and the disease, and all the other problems brought into a geographical area because of a crush of humanity. They don’t have to deal with it.
She was viciously attacked by the George Soros-David Brock smear machine Media Matters, which earlier this year had teamed with celebrity Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg to promote a sponsor boycott of Ingraham’s program with the clear intent to drive her off the airwaves.
Pro-immigration zealots apparently believed Americans should welcome the potentially diseased-ridden migrants with open arms no matter the financial or medical costs.
