Jews were blamed for many ills in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. Turns out they were just a scapegoat for the Nazis. It would be unfortunate for Americans to start pointing fingers at a specific demographic without any evidence whatsoever, wouldn't it? And yet...
Whether it can be proven or not are you 100% certain illegals are not the cause? If your answer is yes I want proof of the claim.
Who in this thread has directly accused illegals as the cause to this flu? I said there is a possibility that there could be cases. It is a fact that diseases are brought here from other countries Knapp. Heck even our ancesters brought over diseases to the indians. Why couldn't it happen in this case?
You said illegals are the cause. You even brought in a four-year-old article to bolster your point. And it's not up to me to prove that illegals aren't the cause. When you make a claim, it's your job to prove that claim, not someone else's job to disprove it. I'm simply asking you to show me where you're coming up with this nonsense that we need to "patrol the borders" better to keep things like this out. I called you out on spreading hysteria, and rather than show us where you've come up with this notion that illegals are part of this problem, you posted an article that's four years old where some uncited source thinks maybe illegals are bringing diseases over.
I freely admit it's possible. Anything's possible. But until we have some evidence, this is fear-mongering and nothing else.
Show me where I said that and I will admit I'm wrong. I suggested that they could be one of the causes but never said they were. There is a huge difference between the 2.
The four year old article was to prove that diseases can make their way across our borders. I don't believe that illegals are the direct cause because I can't prove it. But that doesn't take away from the fact that thye could be.
Again by patrolling borders you have to take into consideration how high those borders are. They are as high as a plane can fly. We must control everything coming in. The only way to do that is patrol what is coming in ie. border patrol
