Currently, almost 70% of U.S. citizens think the country is headed in the wrong direction. Contagious, dangerous diseases invading the country have left citizens fearful and the government with an uncaring, out-of-control image.
In Texas cities, many restaurant and clerical employees are noticeably cautious while handling debit or credit cards, trying to avoid touching the hand of any person.
Still, the Obama administration seems to ignore the voices and needs of U.S. citizens — including the need for jobs, safety, protection from infectious diseases and protection from crime.
Although Texas citizens have aggressively protested the border invasion and illegal immigration, reports tell us that Barack Obama is working on an executive order for amnesty. Governmental officials now admit that amnesty will encourage a new surge of illegal immigrants, along with the risk of more infectious diseases being carried into the country at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Along with states — such as, New Jersey, New York, and Illinois — which have disregarded CDC federal guidelines and created their own guidelines to protect citizens from infectious diseases, assistance is needed from federal courts to protect U.S. citizens from an often unqualified, spinning-out-of-control government.
A Texas immigration case, which was filed in July, 2014, by Dr. Orly Taitz, Attorney, is becoming increasingly important for the safety of citizens.
A decision from Texas Federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen is expected soon in the immigration case which seeks quarantine for illegal immigrants, a travel injunction and travel ban for people traveling from Ebola-stricken countries. The case, Taitz vs. Johnson, which was heard in federal court on October 29, 2014, in Brownsville, Texas, describes personal respiratory injury to Taitz from treating illegal immigrants at her California dental office.
Taitz’ case seems to have already caused a few governmental changes regarding detection and preparation for dangerous diseases which have been coming into the U.S. Still, according to court testimony, many laws are not being followed by governmental agencies to insure protection of U.S. citizens from contagious diseases or illegal immigrants with criminal records.
At the October 29 hearing, Judge Hanen asked witness Vera Dolan, Epidemiologist, what he could do as a judge to protect American citizens from Ebola, and Dolan replied,
“Ban entry into the U.S. until the epidemic is over.”
Hanen then asked what the second best measure to protect citizens from Ebola is, and Dolan replied,
The judge added, “Is there any other measure that I could take?” Dolan said, “I don’t know.”
Kevin Oaks, Chief, Rio Grande Valley Sector, Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, testified that no test is done to detect TB or Ebola when illegal immigrants arrive at the southern border. Dr. Taitz then stated, “You don’t do any tests . . . so they all pass the tests?”
During testimony of Miguel Escobedo, M.D., M.P.H., Quarantine Medical Officer, CDC, Judge Hanen asked,
“So you were relocating people that you knew had infection?”
Dr. Escobedo replied,
“We notified the health department. I didn’t do it.”
Judge Hanen replied,
“It’s all the federal government. With the government the way it is, the buck never stops anywhere. “
Whether or not Judge Hanen will consider Ebola risk in Taitz’ case, the testimony of governmental witnesses was impressive.
Dr. Escobedo described TB as “a very forgiving disease” and seemed to minimize the danger of Ebola. He stated that “Ebola risk is low.”
Referring to Dr. Escobedo’s evaluation of Ebola risk, Dr. Taitz suggested, “Tell it to Nina Pham and Amber Vinson.”
Dr. Taitz questioned the CDC doctor’s evaluation of Ebola by stating, “Ebola risk is Level 4 — doctors and nurses in Africa were covered head-to-toe and had separate oxygen supply — yet 450 health professionals caught Ebola, and 232 health professionals died. How do you explain that?”
Taitz then asked, “Do you know how many beds are available for Level 4 Ebola cases in the U.S.?” . . . . “Would you be surprised to know only 22?” Dr. Escobedo did not appear to have an answer.
Judge Hanen asked quarantine expert Dr. Miquel Escobedo, “Why not make everyone from that region take an Ebola test?” When Dr. Escobedo stated that the CDC provides good protection against Tuberculosis, the judge doubted it, stating, “There have been people right here in this courtroom with Tuberculosis.”
When Dr. Escobedo stated that they do a form of quarantine by giving people from Africa a kit with some literature, the CDC phone number and a thermometer, Judge Hanen asked, “What kind of quarantine is it if people are walking around, riding trains and going bowling?” He added, “That’s why you should always bring your own bowling shoes!”‘
Referring to a travel ban, Federal Judge Hanen stated,
“I am interested in the safety of the United States and the safety of the citizens.”
However, at one point, the judge added, “Do I have the power to authorize this . . . . . just because I don’t agree with it?”
Judge Hanen asked Dr Escobedo, CDC, if it is true that Obama is planning to bring foreigners infected with Ebola into the U.S. for treatment as news reports have stated — with no known cure for Ebola in the U.S. at this time.
After testimony was completed, Judge Hanen questioned Chief Kevin Oaks, Border Patrol, U.S. Customs, about numerous reports of amnesty plans being made by Obama. The judge told Oaks that he read in The Washington Post that Obama had ordered the printing of a large number of ID’s, which is an indication that he is preparing a large amnesty. Judge Hanen asked Chief Oaks, “Wouldn’t a huge amnesty be a magnet for another flood of illegals, who will hope to get legalized like their brethren and predecessors?” Chief Oaks agreed that if Obama sticks the U.S. with a new mega-amnesty, we will see a huge flood of illegals storming the borders. The judge asked Oaks if he is prepared for a mega-amnesty, and Oaks replied, “Yes . . . we have millions of rounds of ammunition.”
Validating the need for federal court intervention, a new article written by White House Correspondent Neil Munro links the cause of the recent spread of infectious diseases to Obama’s refusal to follow immigration laws, while transporting illegals around the country. In Obama’s Border Policy Fueled Epidemic, Evidence Shows, Munro says, “The deadly EV-D68 enterovirus epidemic, which struck thousands of kids this fall, was likely propelled through America by President Barack Obama’s decision to allow tens of thousands of Central Americans across the Texas border, according to a growing body of genetic and statistical evidence. . . . . . The evidence includes admissions from top health officials that the epidemic included multiple strains of the virus, and that it appeared simultaneously in multiple independent locations.”
Summing up current news reports in the U.S., a recent comment on a Washington Post article — referring to the upcoming mid-term election — used an analogy with President Reagan’s election campaign comment during the 1980’s, “Are you better off now than you were six years ago?” . . . .
“Are you more likely now to be infected or beheaded than you were six years ago?”
