This is what happens when illegals come into the country without being medically examined or tested. It is the mark of a 3rd world country where such diseases run rampant. Unless the USA, starts acting like a developed, civilized country once again, we will see more and more of this. We have already seen huge increases in whopping cough etc. But the government blames it on taxpayers rather than correcting the real problem. This is taking away money from cancer patient and the elderly and sick to take care of people who do not belong here.
