Obama Changes Law: Allows Immigrants with Blistering STDs and Leprosy into US
You just can’t make this up… President Obama changes the law and now admits immigrants with lesions, blistering STD’s and leprosy into America.
In his first year in office, President Obama lifted an entry ban on foreigners with HIV.
Most U.S. cases of leprosy occur in people who traveled to the United States from areas of the world where the bacterial infection is endemic.
It’s not clear how this new rule benefits Americans.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The administration has decided to let immigrants with three sexually transmitted diseases known for causing sores or lesions on genitalia to enter the United States, an expansion of a previous decision to let in those with HIV.
The Department of Health and Human Services this month opened the borders to those with the STDs, deeming the communicable diseases not a big threat to the United States.
A report from the Centers for Immigration Studies said that HHS does not believe that the costs to taxpayers to handle the immigrants with STDs will be significant.
Now, said the Center, the list of inadmissible communicable diseases only includes syphilis, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, and leprosy.
