It was all over the news yesterday, Measles, once thought virtually eradicated in the US is back.

I guess Measles will soon join TB as a disease on the rise in the US thanks to our out of control immigration policy.  Is “foreign travel” code for the verboten word—“immigration?”

Here is the story at the Washington Post.

Just looking around for more news on this latest outbreak, I see a medical doctor who writes a health myth website has something to say about the feds/vaccines and immigration.  Check it out here.

I’m wondering if the threat of Measles (and other contagious diseases) increasing in the US is what is really behind the push by the State Department and CDC to get the refugees vaccinated before leaving their third world country, see our report on that new project here ten days ago.
