One Third of Caravan Migrants Are Carrying ‘Dangerous Infectious Diseases’

 More than one third of the members of the migrant caravan are carrying dangerous infectious diseases like tuberculosis, chickenpox and HIV/AIDS, Tijuana’s Health Department warned on Thursday morning.


More than one third of the members of the migrant caravan are carrying dangerous infectious diseases like tuberculosis, chickenpox and HIV/AIDS, Tijuana’s Health Department warned on Thursday morning.

 There are three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox, the spokesman said.

 At least 101 migrants have lice and multiple instances of skin infections, the department’s data shows. There’s also a threat of Hepatitis outbreak due to unsanitary conditions, the spokesman said.

 Lifezette reports: The thousands of migrants are being sheltered at the Benito Juarez Sports Complex near the San Ysidro U.S.-Mexico Port of Entry, even though the place is capable of providing for 1,000 people: https://www.lifezette.com/2018/11/tuberculosis-chicken-pox-hiv-aids...

 The location also has only 35 portable bathrooms.

 A sign reading “No Spitting” was put up, as coughing and spitting by caravan migrants are rampant in the shelter.

 Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said Tuesday that the city has enough money to assist the migrants only for a few more days, with the city saying it’s spending around $30,000 a day.

 “We won’t compromise the resources of the residents of Tijuana. We won’t raise taxes tomorrow to pay for today’s problem,”
Gastelum said during a press conference.

Amid the problems and dire living conditions, some migrants are reportedly self-deporting.

 Approximately 80 self-deported Tuesday while another 98 were deported by Mexican immigration officials for their involvement in the Sunday demonstrations that turned violent.

 Other people have chosen to accept offers of temporary work and asylum from Mexico, yet most still remain committed to entering the United States.

‘Breaking: Supreme Court Sides With Trump Over Sanctuary Cities In Deportation Case

 The US Supreme Court sided with President Trump over sanctuary cities today in a 5-4 decision.

The court ruled the government has the power to detain people who are facing deportation because of the crimes they committed.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined justices Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in the majority.

Bloomberg.com reported:

A divided U.S. Supreme Court bolstered the government’s power to detain people who are facing deportation because of crimes they committed, siding with the Trump administration in a clash with implications for so-called sanctuary cities.

The case focused on non-citizen legal residents who serve a criminal sentence, get released and later are arrested by federal immigration agents.

The 5-4 ruling Tuesday said those people aren’t entitled to a bond hearing, and the possibility of re-release, while the Homeland Security Department presses its case for deportation. The ruling reversed a decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

In announcing the decision from the bench, Justice Samuel Alito said the lower court had made a “policy judgment” using reasoning that “makes a mockery” of the federal immigration laws…

…Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh joined the majority, but they splintered in their reasoning.

Thomas and Gorsuch didn’t agree with all of Alito’s opinion. They said courts lack power to consider issues involving the detention of non-citizens until those people are facing a deportation order.
