Former U.S. representative, three-time presidential candidate, and physician Ron Paul has spoken out publicly about the catastrophic impact the deluge of unaccompanied children illegally entering our country has had on our nation’s hospitals.
A group of protesters staged a demonstration near a Border Patrol processing station in Murrieta, Riverside County, California, on July 1 that resulted in three buses carrying 140 illegal immigrants being carried to the station to turn back. The immigrants, many of whom were women and children from Central America, had illegally crossed the border into Texas recently and had surrendered to Border Patrol agents there. Instead of detaining the aliens and deporting them back to their homelands, the Department of Homeland Security — following current standard procedure — flew them on a U.S. government charter flight to San Diego.
The allegations are shocking: A government-contracted security force is threatening to arrest medical personnel at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, if they reveal information about the rampant disease among the illegal migrants at the facility.
Senator John McCain has called on the Obama administration to create an emergency refugee program for child immigrants coming to the United States from Central America.
