The Kissing Bug involves yet another disease coming from Mexico and South America.
First, it was Enterovirus-68, which has killed and paralyzed many American children, and that was almost certainly brought into the country—and widely spread—by Barack Obama’s foolish actions in regards to Central and South American “youths” who crossed our borders illegally.
Now, let us welcome the deadly “Kissing Bug”!
As the Daily Mail reports, “‘Kissing bug’ disease infects OVER 300,000 people in the US…most of whom don’t know they have the parasite referred to as ‘the new AIDS’”
Chagas is being called the new AIDS because of its asymptomatic beginnings that can turn to a fatal end if the disease progresses.
‘We were astonished to not only find such a high rate of individuals testing positive for Chagas in their blood, but also high rates of heart disease that appear to be Chagas-related,’ said Nolan Garcia, an epidemiologist at the Baylor College of Medicine.
The CDC has said that they believe most of the people infected with Chagas got the parasite in Mexico or South America before coming to the U.S.
The Food and Drug Administration has not yet approved two medicines called nifurtimox and benznidazole that are currently used to treat.
The medications also put people at risk for the disease nerve damage, nausea and weight loss, reports Aljazeera.
The CDC only makes the drugs available when no alternatives exist.
‘The disease can be fatal if not treated,’ said Melissa Nolan Garcia, a research associate at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and co-author of a separate study on Chagas disease in Texas published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene on Tuesday.
‘You are normally asymptomatic until disease has progressed at which time treatment is not helpful. We call this the silent disease,’ Garcia said.
Opposing the Federal Government’s criminal actions with regards to immigration policy has virtually nothing to do with “racism”—it’s a matter of protecting citizens from both hardened criminals and virulent diseases (two things the Federal government is actually supposed to do, versus the plethora of unconstitutional tasks which take most of their time and focus, and our tax dollars).
Yes, we need new immigration policies, but forcing the issue through killing and otherwise harming existing American citizens is immoral.
