One of every five refugees resettled in Minnesota by the federal government tested positive for latent tuberculosis in 2014, according to the state’s Department of Health.

Only 4 percent of the general population in the United States tested positive for latent tuberculosis in the most recent report provided by the Centers for Disease Control.

The April 2016 edition of the Refugee Health Quarterly, published by the Minnesota Department of Health reports that:

Minnesota had 150 cases of TB in 2015, compared to 147 cases in 2014 (a 2 percent increase). The most common risk factor for TB cases in Minnesota is being from a country where TB is common.

TB screening is offered to all refugees during the domestic refugee health exam.

In 2014, 22 percent of refugees screened tested positive for LTBI (latent tuberculosis infection).

26 percent of all foreign born cases of tuberculosis in Minnesota were from people born in Somalia. Somalians almost exclusively enter the state through the refugee resettlement program.



Something the U.S. fought to get rid of and now we import it!

There really is no reason to bring them into the USA when they could just build a city or slap up some military style housing on their own continent that would actually be MUCH cheaper than importing them. The refugees could build their own houses...what a concept! But no, we have to displace them to fit a multi culti agenda. At some point the EBT plug will get pulled and it will be open season on foreigners. The boat people will not fare so well.
