A student enrolled at Benson Magnet High School, one of seven high schools in the Omaha, Nebraska Public Schools system, was diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) in November.
Breitbart Two hundred thirty seven of Benson Magnet High School’s 1,273 students, or 18.6 percent, are refugees, according to Omaha Public School’s District English Language Learner/Refugee Report, 2015-16. And foreign-born residents of Nebraska accounted for 82 percent of all cases of TB diagnosed in the state in 2014, much higher than the national average of 66 percent:
A large number of Obama’s Muslim invaders posing as refugees come from countries where TB is a significant problem. Only six percent of the 1.9 million residents of the Cornhusker State are foreign-born.
You don’t hear much about this in the MSM, who for obvious reasons tries to avoid this topic. But is no secret that UN Sponsored Muslim refugees are bringing in TB, much of it drug-resistant. This is the price we pay for not properly screening immigrants as we used to do. The cost for treating TB runs about $17,000. The cost for treating drug- resistant TB runs $150,000. And guess who is paying the tab?
Officials with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and the Douglas County Public Health Department are withholding whether the student was foreign-born or American-born.
Eighty-two percent of the active tuberculosis (TB) cases diagnosed in Nebraska in 2014, that’s 31 out of 38, were foreign-born, according to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. When asked by Breitbart about TB cases in Douglas Country for 2015 and year-to-date 2016, neither the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services nor the Douglas County Public Health Department would provide that information.
Breitbart News asked the attorney why revealing whether the student diagnosed with active TB at Benson Magnet High School in November was foreign-born or American-born “would probably identify that student” when 237 of the school’s 1,273 students are foreign-born refugees.
But later on, a spokesperson for the Douglas County Public Health Department provided this statement to Breitbart News: All told, 45 cases of active TB have been diagnosed in Douglas County between January 1, 2014 and December 8, 2016. Eighty-nine percent of these cases, or 40 out of 45, were foreign-born.
The number of refugees is up 124 percent over the last seven years. Nebraska has the highest per capita rate of refugee resettlement of any state in the country, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
