BUT THEY WERE VETTED!
Yeah, stop us if you have heard this before. Breitbart News reports a “vetted” refugee has been diagnosed with a multi-drug resistant form of tuberculosis.
One of the 3,554 refugees resettled in Ingham County, Michigan (Lansing) during the six years beginning October 1, 2010 and ending on September 30, 2016 (FY 2011 to FY 2016) has been diagnosed with multi-drug resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB), the Ingham County Health Department tells Breitbart News.
In case you missed it, we presented just a short list of notable refugees arrested for various crimes who were also vetted.
With news breaking in San Bernardino County this week that the federal government placed Syrian refugees in the community of Victorville, I am sure that each of us can rest easy knowing that the government conducts a rigorous vetting of each refugee they place.
Are you really going to doubt the same clowns who said that “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”?
The article goes on to say:
Active TB costs $17,000 to treat with a four-drug regimen over a nine month period and has a virtually 100 percent cure rate. In contrast MDR TB costs $150,000 to treat over a two year to two and a half year time period and has only a 60 percent cure rate.
In 2015, there were 9,563 cases of active TB in the United States, 66 percent of which were foreign-born. In 2014, there were 91 cases of MDR TB in the United States, 88 percent of which were foreign-born.
Do you find it curious that liberal politicians like San Bernardino County Supervisor Robert Lovingood and Victorville City Councilman Ryan McEachron support toll roads because there supposedly isn’t enough money to build more lanes, but yet there is always enough money to spend on welfare and social programs for the world’s castoffs?
