    Another reason to the build the wall - health screenings for people entering the country.

    Not saying we don't need the wall but that's just liberal laziness. Millennial laziness??

    Most people don't know that Ellis Island in NY was built to weed out the sick, lame, those in debt, criminals, and lazy to return them to their home countries as unacceptable immigrants.
    Yes, we vetted every one of them back in the day and rejected those that were deemed a liability to the US immigration system.
    Trump wants to do the same and is vilified by the dims and the media that constantly expound on how this country is a country of immigrants.
    Yes it is. Legal vetted immigrants.

    I'd venture to say that many of today's Americans wouldn't even know where Ellis Island is, let alone any history.

    I've always wondered why the CDC here in the U.S. doesn't have teams along the border. I feel the CDC is letting the people of America down and again I can't believe they all but refuse to investigate the border...both North and South.

    As for the attorney Ms. Greenwood....it couldn't have happened to a better person. If it were just a clerk , maintenance worker, or any other regular person they probably would still be dragging their feet about the outbreak. Let the "higher" officials get sick and inconvenienced and sh*t hits the fan and somehow things get done.

    The kicker to me is...this was a government building with a somewhat set standard of cleanliness. What about the rest of the city and the homeless?

    You guys realize we had a case of typhus here in OK a couple of years ago? As well as a measles outbreak... the typhus was in Ponca City.

    The CDC is another government bureaucracy staffed by white-coated liberal lab rats.
