Obama's open borders caused D68 pandemic that infected thousands of U.S. children

(NaturalNews) The decision by the Obama Administration to leave America's borders wide open and actually encourage illegal children from Central America to pour into the country earlier this year may have been the cause of the EV-D68 enterovirus epidemic, which infected thousands of U.S. children and left dozens stricken with polio-like paralysis.
Several top health officials have publicly admitted that multiple strains of the virus appeared simultaneously in different locations throughout the country, matching the pattern of entry of the Central American children. Genetic and statistical evidence also suggest that the viruses may have originated well beyond the southern border, a consequence of Obama's loose open-borders policy.
Nora Chapman, an enterovirus scientist at the University of Nebraska, told The Daily Caller that federal researchers would still need to test the genetic fingerprint of the EV-D68 strains that are circulating to determine whether or not they match the type that is prevalent in Central America. But according to the news source, there is already more than enough statistical evidence to substantiate a link.
According to the official count, nine people, including three American children, tested positive for the virus, while 50 additional children succumbed to polio-like paralysis that some experts say is directly linked to the virus. Hundreds of U.S. children were also admitted to hospital emergency wards and intensive care units in more than 40 states due to apparent symptoms.
Fearful scientists shy away from blaming Obama for EV-D68 epidemic Though the evidence increasingly and overwhelmingly suggests that these Central American children brought EV-D68 into the U.S., some scientists are fearful of linking Obama's immigration policies to the disease's spread.
"I would just steer away from that -- it is not helpful, so why bring it up?" was the excuse given to The Daily Caller by George Washington University's Lone Simonsen. "A better angle [is], 'We're just learning what this outbreak is all about.'"
Others expressed similar sentiments, though they would not actually say what they believed to be the cause. Surely EV-D68 is not just some random disease that was lying dormant and suddenly emerged, coincidentally, around the exact same time that young foreign nationals were being shipped across the U.S. border into Texas, Illinois, Colorado and elsewhere.
On October 29, The New York Times posed some honest questions about how EV-D68 might be linked to all the paralysis cases, which don't appear to have any common source. But the same piece completely ignored any possible link between the enterovirus class and the Central American children.
The mainstream media can claim all it wants, through direct omission, that EV-D68 was not caused by Obama. But an open-border policy that allows children from highly infected countries to come into the U.S. without proper medical testing, and disseminate throughout the general population, is just asking for trouble.
"Few of the many sick kids were formally tested for EV-D68, partly because the test is slow, expensive and not useful for doctors," adds The Daily Caller. "That's because EV-D68 victims get the same general treatment as other enterovirus victims."
As of October 24, the number of confirmed EV-D68 cases nationwide has nearly breached 1,000. According to reports, this is 300 times the infection rate seen during the entire 33-year period between 1970 and 2003.
"This isn't something hard to prove or disprove," contends Selwyn Duke from American Thinker.
"All you need do is ascertain if the strain prevalent in the U.S. is the same as one found south of the border. This is simple epidemiology, and there's only one reason we don't know:
"The powers that be don't want us to know."
