Illegal aliens can do pretty much as they please in America, and that seems to include their Democrat-given right to infect others with an extremely dangerous drug-resistant form of tuberculosis. Officials have responded now, but their lenience has certainly made matters worse.
Eduardo Rosas Cruz is a twenty-five year-old illegal alien from Mexico. He isnâ€™t just your run-of-the-mill si se puede-chanting Mexican illegal. Heâ€™s from a part of Mexico that is known for being a source of an especially virulent and drug resistant strain of TB.
Cruz went to the emergency room of San Joaquin General Hospital in MarchÂ complainingÂ of a severe cough, shortness of breath, and a high fever. He had also lost a considerable amount of weight. Tests revealed that he had tuberculosis and, rather than being deported back to the country he is supposed to be living and infecting in, he was required to remain sequestered in the U.S., in a Stockton motel room. His medication was delivered to him by a member of the hospital staff who watched him to make certain he took it.
Cruz left his motel for the familiar comfort of the California shadows, where he is busily infecting countless unsuspecting residents. As a result, heâ€™s now the target of a statewide manhunt.
While many of those he is probably infecting are his fellow illegals, citizens who he comes into contact with can also become victims. Then again, many of those citizens are the ones who, as California residents, vote for the policies which create this stupidity. Maybe they are necessary collateral damage as part of the greater good, the awakening of America.
According to Dr. Alvaro Garza, failure to complete the nine-month regime will invite the disease to come â€œroaring back,â€ and Cruz is not even close to completing his treatment.
The law prohibits health officials from forcing a person to be treated, but they can order him held in isolation, with treatment offered as a means by which to end the quarantine.
With his new-found freedom, Cruz might want to seek out Nancy Pelosi during the upcoming August recess and personally thank her for the stateâ€™s sanctuary policies. He could express his sincere gratitude by delivering a big, wet, sloppy kiss to her stretched-out lips. He might even be so sick as to involuntarily follow it up with a deep, chesty cough to the face.
If liberal socialist lawmakers didnâ€™t feel immune from the damage they are inflicting, they would be much less likely to impose it. The former Speaker could lead by example, exposing the dangers of the sanctuary policies she and her fellow Democrats have championed.
Legal immigrants are screened for TB, but Pelosi and her Democrats donâ€™t believe in immigration law. An epidemic or two might make believers out of them and surely we will find out in the near future. It will probably come at a time when it is too late to do anything about it.
