HEALTH SCARE AT THE BORDER: Agents Warned of ‘Ebola,’ Other Diseases at Migrant ‘Holding Centers’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.17.19

A Border Patrol union warned members this week of the growing healthcare emergency taking place at “migrant holding centers” along the US-Mexico border; saying an outbreak of “Ebola” and other diseases can be possible in the coming months.

“Some Border Patrol agents in Texas are concerned about exposure to Ebola by a migrant fleeing the Democratic Republic of the Congo for the United States,” reports Fox News. “But more of them are worried about other illnesses frequently popping up among detainees at stations across the southern border, according to union representatives.”

“Jon Anfinsen is a National Border Patrol Council vice president and based in Del Rio, which includes Eagle Pass, where most Congolese are arriving. Anfinsen represents approximately 1,000 agents who are based out of 10 regional holding stations. Anfinsen has been an agent 12 years and said the number of people in custody and subsequent illnesses among that population is ‘unprecedented.’” Adds Fox.

“Scabies, chickenpox — we had one case of the mumps here in Uvalde. I wanna say we had measles — plenty of the flu, plenty of colds, body lice, just assorted. And some of these things, they spread like wildfires when you get into a cramped holding cell. It happens,” Anfinsen said.

US officials confirmed this week a “record number” of migrants from Central Africa are flying to South America and illegally entering the United States from Mexico.

“Undaunted by a dangerous journey over thousands of miles, people fleeing economic hardship and human rights abuses in African countries are coming to the U.S.-Mexico border in unprecedented numbers, surprising Border Patrol agents more accustomed to Spanish-speaking migrants,” reports the Associated Press.

“Officials in Texas and even Maine are scrambling to absorb the sharp increase in African migrants. They are coming to America after flying across the Atlantic Ocean to South America and then embarking on an often harrowing overland journey,” adds the author.

Less than two weeks ago, Border Patrol agents discovered more than 500 migrants from the Congo and Angola crossing the Rio Grande.

“More than 500 migrants from African nations — including Angola, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo — have been apprehended in Texas, at the Del Rio Border Patrol sector of the U.S.-Mexico border, since May 30, according to US Customs and Border Protection,” reports Fox News.

A single group of 116 migrants were apprehended at one time after crossing the Rio Grande into the United States.

According to federal agents, the immigrants’ inability to speak English or Spanish is creating “additional burdens on processing stations.”

“It remained unclear what route the African migrants had taken to arrive to the U.S.-Mexico border. Some Africans recently told NPR they traveled from Africa to Brazil and then north though Colombia and Central America,” adds Fox.

'FULL BLOWN EMERGENCY': 500+ ‘African Migrants’ Crossed US-Mexico Border Since MAY 30

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.07.19

Hundreds of migrants from Central African nations -including the Congo and Angola- have crossed the US-Mexico border in previous days; with experts saying the immigrants are entering Brazil before making their way towards the United States.

“More than 500 migrants from African nations — including Angola, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo — have been apprehended in Texas, at the Del Rio Border Patrol sector of the U.S.-Mexico border, since May 30, according to US Customs and Border Protection,” reports Fox News.

A single group of 116 migrants were apprehended at one time after crossing the Rio Grande into the United States.

According to federal agents, the immigrants’ inability to speak English or Spanish is creating “additional burdens on processing stations.”

“It remained unclear what route the African migrants had taken to arrive to the U.S.-Mexico border. Some Africans recently told NPR they traveled from Africa to Brazil and then north though Colombia and Central America,” adds Fox.

“BREAKING: City confirms hundreds of migrants from the Congo have arrived in SA. The city is in desperate need for French speaking volunteers,” posted a local news reporter from San Antonio.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station apprehended a large group of 116 individuals Thursday,” stated a press release from the Border and Customs Protection Agency.

“Large groups present a unique challenge for the men and women of the Del Rio Sector,” said Chief Raul Ortiz. “This large group from Africa further demonstrates the complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border.”

“This is the first large group apprehended in the Del Rio Sector and the first large group of people from Africa – including nationals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo – apprehended on the Southwest border this year,” adds the statement.

The arrests come as more and more top-tier Democrats admit a public “crisis at the border” after months of denying the President’s national emergency declaration.

“We’ve never not said that there was a crisis. There is a humanitarian crisis at the border. And some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration and… I’ll just quote our friends from the Evangelical community when they came in and testified in the last Congress in one of our rump hearings because the Republicans wouldn’t have the hearing,” said Pelosi during an interview on Satellite Radio.

“We will hopefully work together in a bipartisan way to address this. But, yes, it is a crisis…” she added.

BORDER CHAOS: US Agents Arrest 116 Migrants from CENTRAL AFRICA at US-Mexico Border

The total chaos sweeping the US-Mexico border continued over the weekend; with US officials confirming they detained a “large group” of migrants originating from Central African nations like Angola and the Congo.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station apprehended a large group of 116 individuals Thursday,” stated a press release from the Border and Customs Protection Agency.

“Large groups present a unique challenge for the men and women of the Del Rio Sector,” said Chief Raul Ortiz. “This large group from Africa further demonstrates the complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border.”

“This is the first large group apprehended in the Del Rio Sector and the first large group of people from Africa – including nationals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo – apprehended on the Southwest border this year,” adds the statement.

“We’ve never not said that there was a crisis. There is a humanitarian crisis at the border. And some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration and… I’ll just quote our friends from the Evangelical community when they came in and testified in the last Congress in one of our rump hearings because the Republicans wouldn’t have the hearing,” said Pelosi during an interview on Satellite Radio.

“We will hopefully work together in a bipartisan way to address this. But, yes, it is a crisis…” she added.

Pelosi’s comments are drastically different from her rhetoric just months ago after President Trump declared a “national emergency” at the US-Mexico border.

“The President’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation,” said a joint statement released by Pelosi and Schumer’s office.

“There. Is. No. Crisis. At. The. Border,” posted the official Twitter account of the Democratic Party.
