A Border Patrol agent from the Laredo, Texas, Sector has been hospitalized for seven days with bacterial pneumonia, which the agent contracted while processing illegal immigrants, officials from National Border Patrol Council 2455 tell National Review Online.
Agent Jarrad Seely, vice president of NBPC 2455, says the agent is expected to have chronic asthmatic symptoms for life, according to information relayed by the agent. The illness has so swollen the agent’s throat that it’s difficult for the agent to speak, Seely says.
Seely says the Laredo Sector has recently had illegal immigrants arrive with active cases of tuberculosis, scabies, lice and chicken pox.
Sooner or later we're going to hear about people getting lice and Deity-knows-what after flying on the planes or riding the buses they've been putting these people on. And that nice med-resistant TB and whatever else we're not hearing about yet.
Wonder how Obama will blame it on Bush?
