  The joys of unrestricted illegal immigration, third world plagues.
WorldNetDaily: Are illegals making U.S. a leper colony?: "Leprosy, the contagious skin disease evoking thoughts of biblical and medieval times, is now making its mark in the United States, and many believe the influx of illegal aliens is a main factor.

'Americans should be told that diseases long eradicated in this country – tuberculosis, leprosy, polio, for example – and other extremely contagious diseases have been linked directly to illegals,' Rep. J.D. Hayworth, R-Ariz., told the Business Journal of Phoenix. 'For example, in 40 years, only 900 persons were afflicted by leprosy in the U.S.; in the past three years, more than 7,000 cases have been presented.'

'This emerging crisis exposes the upside-down thinking of federal immigration policy,' he continued. 'While legal immigrants must undergo health screening prior to entering the U.S., illegal immigrants far more likely to be carrying contagious diseases are crawling under that safeguard and going undetected until they infect extraordinary numbers of American residents.'"
