A full month after tens of thousands of illegal alien minors flooded across the Texas-Mexico border, an American leader finally made a move to bolster the seemingly overwhelmed U.S. Border Patrol agents in south Texas. As covered by Fox News Latino, the Mexican Foreign Relations Secretariat released a written statement to the press expressing their “concern” over upwards of 1,000 troops ordered to the border.

Texas Governor Rick Perry waited in vain for well over 4 weeks for the Obama administration to federalize National Guard troops to send to the border area. The Commander-in-Chief of the Texas Guard eventually ordered upwards of 1,000 Lone Star troops to ostensibly perform support duties for the already overwhelmed Border Patrol agents assigned to the 1,200 miles stretch between the Gulf Coast and El Paso.

With more than a few yanqui eyebrows raised, the Mexican government deemed it necessary to chime in on the deployment of American troops on American soil:

Attention to the immigration phenomenon must be paid from a long-term regional perspective and based on the principles of good neighborliness and shared responsibility.

In the meantime, the recent illegal arrivals are often carrying a research lab’s worth of diseases, a fact the American media are ignoring. Slate reported earlier this month that unlike legal immigrants, the latest wave of illegal immigrants are not being screened for “sexually transmitted diseases, active tuberculosis, new strains of influenza, leprosy, cholera, and plague.” Other infestations and infectious diseases such as lice, drug-resistant tuberculosis, scabies, dengue fever, measles, and chickenpox are running rampant in the spur-of-the-moment cramped housing conditions mandated by the federal government.

It is also being reported that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention require all legal immigrants to provide proof of vaccination for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, haemophilus strains, hepatitis A and B, rotavirus, meningococcus, chicken pox, pneumonia, and seasonal flu.
