Here we go again! Another case of Tuberculosis (ACTIVE TB) has turned up in Minnesota where officials are being questioned about why they waited so long to notify those who might have been exposed to the communicable disease. From Michael Leahy, Breitbart’s expert on diseases in the immigrant/refugee population:
Minnesota Health Officials Conceal Case of Active TB in High School for Six Weeks
A student or staff member at St. Louis Park High School in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota, was diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) in late November, but Hennepin County Department of Health officials and St. Louis Park Public Schools officials concealed that information from the public until the second week of January, six weeks later.
“Some parents received letters in the mail Thursday saying their teenagers may have been exposed to an infectious disease,” WCCO reported.
“In late November, the school district was notified by the Hennepin County Department of Health that an individual at the high school had been diagnosed with active (TB),” St. Louis Park Public Schools Superintendent Rob Metz wrote in a letter sent to parents of students dated January 11.
The letter was sent in three languages: English, Spanish, and Somali.
Read it all. Some fishy timing on all of this! Metz has moved on to bigger and better things!
I wondered if there is any criminal liability involved if a student or teacher should contract TB during the period when officials were keeping the revelation secret. If there isn’t, this is something Congress could fix pretty easily!

Perhaps after Obama and Hillary, Samantha Power is next on my list of Leftists I will be happy to see leave the world stage.
We have written extensively about Ms. Power who along with Hillary and Susan Rice (I called them the three witches!) nagged Obama to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi which unleashed a new wave of African migration to Europe via the now failed state of Libya.
Readers, if the US cuts our funding to the UN (I know it’s a long shot), but that one act could help ‘pause’ refugee admissions to America like nothing else (since the UN is now picking almost all of our refugees).
Unfortunately it looks like the Ted Cruz/Lindsey Graham effort to cut funding is tied only to the resolution on Israel.
From Breitbart Jerusalem:
(AFP) UNITED NATIONS, United States — US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power on Friday warned that cutting US funding to the United Nations would be “extremely detrimental” to American interests, one week before Donald Trump’s administration takes office.
Addressing her final news conference, Power told reporters that “countries like Russia and China” would benefit from Washington’s reduced standing at the United Nations if funding were withdrawn.
“We lead the world, in part, by leading at the UN,” said Power, who is stepping down next week after four years as President Barack Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations.
The Safeguard Israel Act of 2017 — introduced by Senate Republicans Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham — aims to push back against the UN by threatening to pull billions of dollars in funding.

See my Samantha Power archive here.
She began her White House career as the Iraqi refugee czar but was quoted in 2012indicating her frustration with “doing rinky-dink do-gooder stuff,” such as advocating on behalf of beleaguered Christians in Iraq.
She moved on to join the girls (the “humanitarian Vulcans”) in working to destabilize Libya and from there she climbed to her perch at the UN.
I shudder to think where she will turn up next!
I’m going to make this a quick post because I have too much other important news to write about.
Before I get to the three top posts of the week, I want to talk about facebook. Truthfully, I never really got into it and so I’m not very savvy about using it and I don’t have enough hours in the day to answer your many comments and inquiries at my Refugee Resettlement Watch facebook page here. (Remember it is just me here, this is not an organization and I have no staff).
I haven’t posted everything I write at that facebook page, but I think I will from now on. At this point in time, the page has 37,000 likes and a friend posts some additional news items on it. I believe you can go there and follow me there.
As for my ‘friends,’ I get many requests every day and I will try harder to add you, but I don’t post much on my personal timeline anyway, I post at the page!
And, as I have said many times, I am on twitter (@refugeewatcher) and I tweet often (average around 8 tweets a day). I place every post I write on twitter plus many other related news items every day (some that you send me, but that I have no time to post on the blog itself).
You can see both my twitter feed in the right hand column here and my facebook page in the left hand column right here on RRW.
Enough of that!
For more weekly, monthly and annual round-ups go here. For new readers: See recent monthly round-ups for instructions on getting the most out of RRW (at the end of both the October roundup, here, and at the end of the November roundup, here.)
Yippee! This time next week, we will have a new America!
Lack of Jobs in Africa Could Spark Massive Migration to Europe
The economies of the developing world cannot keep pace with an increase in population, meaning millions of people from Africa will likely migrate to Europe, a new report has found.
The report, from the Geneva-based International Labour Organisation (ILO), states that the economies of developing nations in Arica, Asia, and South America cannot keep pace with the number of young people entering the workforce. The result, especially in Africa, will mean that many are ready to migrate and look for jobs elsewhere – and their main target will likely be Europe Die Welt reports.
Don’t get these economic migrants confused with legitimate refugees. They are not, but the open borders movement is going to call them all refugees/asylum seekers!
Economists expect that the number of unemployed in African states will skyrocket, as the slow growth of African economies may only produce a few hundred thousand jobs over the next year. By contrast, the ILO expects there to be millions of young people entering the job market across the African continent.
The only hope for Europe (and it may be too late) is for countries like France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands to elect leaders who are nationalists!
