Contagious Diseases On The Rise In Texas Immigrant Shelters


The number of illegal immigrants with contagious diseases in custody in Texas is on the rise.

A new state health department report from last week says there are 186 immigrants in ICE detention in several Texas locations with mumps and other contagious illnesses. In contrast for example, in the whole United States between January of 2016 through February 2018 there were no immigrants diagnosed with mumps.

An ICE report on Monday reveals that as of March 7th, all across the United States, there are over two-thousand immigrant detainees in quarantine because of some sort of contagious illness, mostly mumps, chicken pox and the flu.
