The threat of dangerous diseases as Ebola is now higher for the U.S. as African migrants cross the Texas border according to a report by Conservative Review.
According to their report, over 500 African migrants were apprehended in Texas in just one week – from May 30 through June 5.
They say this is according to preliminary weekly data used internally by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and given to Conservative Review by a Border Patrol agent who remains anonymous because he is not authorized to speak to the press.
Reportedly, the majority of the migrants caught in Texas were from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the country with the worst Ebola outbreak in the world.
The apprehended migrants country of origin was reported with the following breakdown: Angola – 101; Cameroon – 6; Democratic Republic of Congo – 314; Gabon – 1; Niger – 1; Republic of Congo – 130.
Yahoo News also reported that the U.S is detaining hundreds of African migrants at the border after a ‘dramatic rise’ in arrivals. And the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is currently experiencing an Ebola outbreak where as of June 4, according to the World Health Organization, there were a total of 2,025 cases of Ebola with the majority resulting in death.
In addition to Ebola, the DRC is experiencing 87,000 cases of measles, claiming the lives of 1,500. Angola and Cameroon are also experiencing measles outbreaks, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
They also report local media in San Antonio has said that hundreds of these African migrants were seen dropped off at bus stations in San Antonio.
Texas Public Radio reported that hundreds of Central African migrants, trying to escape poverty and violence, had crossed the U.S. southern border the first week of June and were now in San Antonio.
They report that to get to the U.S., most Central African migrants start with a flight to South or Central America, and when they get there, they find the well-traveled roads to follow north.
They report the U.S. border, customs and border protection says its arrested more than 500 Africans since May 30, and hundreds of others have ended up on shuttle vans that drop them off on a busy street corner in downtown San Antonio, near the greyhound bus station, outside the migrant resource center.
TIME Magazine reports that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection says a “dramatic rise” in the number of African migrants crossing the U.S. border is contributing to a “humanitarian crisis.” Saying that more than 500 migrants from countries such as Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Angola have arrived at the Del Rio border station in Texas since May 30.
They report that customs officials say the influx of migrants is overwhelming. “When we have 4,000 people in custody, we consider it high,” Customs and Border Patrol’s commissioner John Sanders told a press conference. “If there’s 6,000 people in custody, we considered it a crisis. Right now, we have nearly 19,000 people in custody. So it’s just off the charts.”
According to the BBC, the African migrants arrived at the Del Rio border patrol sector after having traveled from the African countries of Angola, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo. Where Del Rio Sector’s chief patrol agent Raul L Ortiz said that language barriers and cultural differences were also placing “additional burdens on [border patrol] processing stations.” Many of the migrants also traveled on to San Antonio, Texas.
Although there is the threat of dangerous diseases from countries as the Congo, yet Conservative Review reports there are no mandatory and universal screenings, quarantines, or detention before illegal immigrants are released into communities.
And they report there is no screening, scrutiny, or quarantine required of those coming from African countries more than from anywhere else.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has just reported that Ebola has now spread from the Democratic Republic of Congo to the neighboring country of Uganda.
And they also just warned that the world is entering “a new phase” where big outbreaks of deadly diseases like Ebola are a “new normal.” Where they said that countries needed to “get to grips with readiness and be ready for these epidemics.”
Given the African migrant situation reported now at the southern U.S. border at Texas, one can see how that the U.S. would not be an exception.
