Migrant Shelters Now Hotbeds For Measles Outbreaks

On top of all the vital issues inherent with the nation’s migrant shelters bursting at the seams, now there is a public health crisis. Measles, once thought to be a thing of the past, is poised for a major comeback due to outbreaks in these facilities.

The Biden White House prides itself in permitting millions of unvetted and, of course, unvaccinated illegal migrants into the country.

Health officials, therefore, should not feign surprise when outbreaks ravage the population. As the Daily Mail reported, “Many young physicians have never even seen a patient with the virus.”

But there are several infections in California and Arizona, and a Chicago migrant shelter is ground zero for an outbreak in the Windy City. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent a team to attempt to control the most recent outbreak of measles.

The city currently has its first outbreak since 2019 with five cases. Four of those were diagnosed in a Chicago migrant shelter, though the fear is that they will rapidly spread to other parts of the densely populated metropolis.

The Chicago facility holds 1,800 illegal migrants. 

The outlet noted that U.S. medical officials have already documented nearly as many measles cases in the first two months of 2024 as were seen in all of last year. 

The CDC reported there have been at least 45 cases nationwide for a disease recently thought to be all but eradicated. The cases were spread out over 17 states.

This came even as many no longer remember what it was like to live with measles. American vaccination rates for the malady have dropped for three consecutive years, meaning that much more of the population may be at risk.

With millions pouring across Biden’s open border, it was only a matter of time.

Measles is easily prevented with proper treatment. The two-dose MMR vaccine is more than 97% effective in preventing the disease, and at one point virtually all American children were prepared.

But vaccination rates against the virus dropped recently. For the 2022-23 school year, the latest for which data is available, the rate fell to only 93.1% — below the 95% threshold necessary to prevent its spread.

For the unvaccinated, measles is one of the most infectious diseases possible. It moves from person to person through droplets in the air or contaminated surfaces, and 90% of those who come into contact become infected.
