The breadth of the outbreak of mumps in Northwest Arkansas appears to be linked in part to that area's community of Marshall Islanders, the director of the state Department of Health said Monday.

Diseases from endless streams of illegals, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights. They make sure our vote does not count.
They violate the 1st Amendment by banning books like “America Deceived III”.
They violate the 2nd Amendment by banning guns.
Both parties are lawless.
Last link of “America Deceived III” before it is completely banned:

Sounds like reader needs a vaccine against turning into sea bass.

You might want to read mein kampf about the jews and the bible about the jews and muslims and Alice in Wonderland about your view of the world.

Perhaps we may need to declare war on Iowa for causing this outbreak. If we only had an aircraft carrier we'd teach them iowans a lesson. We might have a nuke at the air base and the national guard could take it over and we could bomb iowa back to the days when the ancient books were written.

They must be a real tight knit community those Marshallese.

reader2017 - you might want to get a clue. The Marshallese are NOT illegals. We - the United States - tested our nuclear bombs in their waters and islands. Perhaps Bikini Atoll, which is still uninhabital to this day, comes to your mind? Due to the atrocities from our stupidity, there is a 1986 pact between the Marshall Islands government and the United States allowing the Marshallese unrestricted travel in the United States.

I lived around the Marshallese, and even worked with several, while I was on Kwajalein - located in the Marshall Islands. The Marshallese people live on the nearby island of Ebeye and are some of the kindest people in the world. We owe these people so much more than they'll ever get. They lost their homes, their families, friends and waters due to our stupidity.

Again - the Marshallese are NOT illegals. It is legal for them to travel unrestricted to or in the United States.
