Here’s some news from CNN that we actually believe:
More than 2,000 people in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody are being quarantined amid an outbreak of mumps and other diseases https://t.co/tQTiILukFd

That is concerning. Let’s check in with The Resistance to see how they’re reacting:
This is a Neo Nazi death camp.

Wouldnt be suprised if ice agents were giving them infected blankets at this point.

Or, just maybe, they’re lucky to be in custody in the United States where they’ll receive proper medical care.
More than 2,000 people in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody are being quarantined amid an outbreak of mumps and other diseases.
The numbers of immigrants in custody with a contagious diseases has spiked in the past year. For the previous two years, the agency has not encountered a single case of mumps among its detainees.
“As of March 7, 2019, there was a total of 2,287 detainees cohorted for exposure to a detainee with a contagious condition,” said ICE spokesperson Brendan Raedy in a statement.
In the past 12 months, there have been health investigations at 51 ICE detention facilities for mumps, chickenpox and influenza, according to Raedy.
There have been 236 reported cases of mumps, with another 16 suspected cases during this time period.
This reminds of the stories coming out of the overcrowded and unsanitary refugee camps set up in Mexico to handle the massive South American caravan making its way to the United States. Mexican officials found four cases of chickenpox, and aid workers said they were dealing with lice and nit infestations as well as many respiratory infections.
But yeah, it’s the Trump administration giving people in ICE custody mumps, chickenpox, and influenza.

THAT'S the national emergency! Putting kids and elderly at risk by allowing unvaccinated immigrants into this country.

And this is not a crisis? @GavinNewsom

Build the wall! Thousands of people are quarantined for diseases that have been eradicated in the US. Illegal aliens are putting America at risk. Even @CNN is reporting this now, so it must be serious.

I'm so glad we're getting these diseases back that we almost eradicated in western society 100 years ago.

But Dems have said repeatedly that none of those people were a threat to our safety….

Give these people adequate care and ship them back. We can do the 3rd world a favor and send them back healthy. This is a gift to those countries.

But let’s open our borders and let the illegals into our country. #BuildTheWall

No emergency just release them.

They should all be allowed to relocate in sanctuary cities. Leftists will accept them with open arms.

Somehow the liberals will find a way to blame this on Trump. SMH
— Karyn Melligan, Ph.D. (@karynmelligan) March 11, 2019
Yep; see above.
More than 2,000 are afflicted which means thousands more have yet to show symptoms – but will, depending on disease gestation timetable.
MUMPS is 2-3 weeks following exposure. They'll be in your town soon. https://t.co/agkSoBu2vF

ICE told CNN that “comprehensive medical care is provided to everyone in custody, including access to nurses, physicians, and to 24-hour emergency care.”
