Medical Expert: Migrant Caravan Could Pose Public Health Threat

BREITBART:

Dr. Jan Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, said on Breitbart News Daily that the thousands of people marching toward the U.S. border with Mexico could bring diseases that could pose a threat to public health.

“It just makes no sense from a public health standpoint to let in a lot of people who have not been screened,” Orient told Amanda House, deputy political editor for Breitbart News and host of Breitbart News Sunday on the SiriusXM Patriot Channel.

Orient said that unlike the days when Ellis Island was the place where migrants were tested for diseases and put in quarantine to protect against diseases in the incubation stage, in recent years people have been allowed to enter the country and settle across the country without proper screenings.
