ACTIVE TUBERCULOSIS (TB). Hundreds of Somali Muslim invaders who bring nothing of value to America, are bringing crime, sexual abuse, terrorism, and now communicable diseases. More than one out of every five Somali Muslim refugees resettled in Minnesota by the federal government tested positive for tuberculosis in 2014, according to the state’s Department of Health.
Even worse, Barack Hussein Obama not only is forcing American taxpayers to pay for their expensive medical care to treat these diseases, they also have to pay for the Somali Muslims to fly here, and to support them when they have no job skills and/or refuse to work.
Breitbart An astonishing 22 percent of the refugees President Barack Obama has resettled in Minnesota tested positive in 2014 for the highly contagious bacterial infection tuberculosis. According to Breitbart, which uncovered these numbers by studying data from the Department of Health, that 22 percent rate is 18 percent higher than the rate of TB among the general population.
Moreover, it was found that the most common risk factor for TB was whether or not the patient came from a country where TB is prevalent. — a country such as Somalia, for instance.
The number of active TB cases reported among refugees arriving in Minnesota (296) is ten times higher than reported in any of the fourteen other states that have released refugee TB data to the public, or made it available to Breitbart News.
The other thirteen states, and the number of diagnosed cases of active TB among refugees are:
Nebraska (21), Louisiana (21), Michigan (19), Vermont (17), Colorado (16), Florida (11), Ohio (11 in one county), Idaho (7), Kentucky (9 in one county), North Dakota (4 in one county), Indiana (4), California (3), and Tennessee, where two refugees have been diagnosed with the very dangerous, multi-drug resistant (MDR) TB. 36 states have refused to report the number of cases they have.
“Tuberculosis (TB) has surpassed HIV as the leading cause of death from infectious disease worldwide,” the Minnesota Department of Health reports. Tuberculosis is airborne and can be spread when a person active tuberculosis coughs, sneezes, or otherwise transmits the infection to a previously uninfected individual.
The Minnesota Department of Health provided Breitbart News with this statement when asked why Minnesota has reported ten times more active TB cases among refugees than any of these fourteen other states:
“The presence of other medical conditions is the chief risk factor for the activation of TB disease in a person with latent infection (and remember, a third of the world has latent TB infection). These conditions include diabetes, cancers, immune suppressing medications, and renal disease.”
During the five years between 2010 and 2014, 732 cases of active TB were diagnosed in Minnesota. Of these, 81 percent, or 593, were foreign-born. Minnesota’s 81 percent of TB cases diagnosed among foreign-born residents is significantly higher than the 66 percent of TB cases in the entire country that were diagnosed among foreign-born residents in 2015.
The Star Tribune, citing “community leaders,” reports the Somali population in the state may be as high as 70,000. At an average cost of $17,000 for each case of successfully treated active TB, taxpayers of Minnesota paid an estimated $5 million to treat the 296 cases of active TB diagnosed among refugees between 2010 and 2014–$3 million for the 161 Somali refugees diagnosed with active TB, and an additional $2 million to treat the 132 refugees diagnosed with active TB who were not born in Somalia.
Most of the 296 refugees were diagnosed with active TB during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, from January 2009 to February 2013.
Placement of refugees in specific states is determined by the Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migrants, in consultation with the director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.
