Oregon Washington Measles outbreak

More than 30 cases of measles have been reported throughout Oregon and Washington. Measles can be caught through the air and is listed as one of the more contagious diseases out there by the CDC. Unvaccinated youth are listed as the primary cause of this outbreak, with a reported 76% of kindergarten kids in the 2017-2018 school year showing to have been vaccinated against the extremely rare disease. With tuberculosis and hepatitis on the rise, we have to ask ourselves where this is coming from. Is it a combination of failing to vaccinate and uncontrolled illegal unvetted illegal immigration? 

 The CDC has technical instructions for medical examination of prospective immigrants in their home countries before they are permitted to enter the U.S. They should be checked for infectious diseases such as TB, hepatitis, polio, mumps, HIV, malaria, and measles. Testing also for syphilis, gonorrhea and other STD’s. This is not done when people just stroll across the southern border, then claim sanctuary in states where immigration status enforcement is either illegal or not a priority. This compiled with our apparent aversion fo vaccination is a deadly combination.
