CDC: Uptick in measles cases likely caused by illegal immigrants

by Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) In between breaths blaming the unvaccinated for spreading measles (and somehow putting the entire world at risk of suffering and death, depending upon which propaganda outlets you follow), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently admitted that illegal immigrants are likely to blame for sparking this latest outbreak.

Either that or it was an American who, prior to visiting Disneyland, had traveled abroad and caught the disease, admitted a CDC official during a recent press conference. In either case, it remains unclear whether or not patient zero had, in fact, been vaccinated, despite a constant media barrage claiming that "anti-vaxxers" are to blame for this alleged resurgence of a disease that was never truly eradicated.

"We don't know exactly how this outbreak started but we do think it was likely a person infected with measles overseas," stated Dr. Anne Schuchat from the CDC. "We assume that someone got infected with measles overseas, visited Disneyland park, and spread the disease to others."

20-year high in measles cases in 2014 caused by illegal immigrants, says CDC

The mainstream media seems to be changing its tune some, reverting from its previous definitive stance that measles was "completely eradicated" in 2000 due to vaccines, to a much softer "had thought" it was eradicated in 2000 due to, well, nobody knows. And what brought measles back? An influx of illegal immigrants, says the agency.

This is according to Breitbart, which also reports that the 20-year high of measles cases reached in 2014 was caused by foreigners, not the unvaccinated. Perhaps the CDC is now claiming this because the truth is coming out that the vaccinated often spread measles during the "shedding" period when the live virus from the vaccine is contagious to others.

"Numerous scientific studies indicate that children who receive a live virus vaccination can shed the disease and infect others for weeks or even months afterwards," said award-winning documentary filmmaker and activist Leslie Manookian, producer of The Greater Good, a film aiming to open up dialogue about vaccine safety. "Thus, parents who vaccinate their children can indeed put others at risk."

Is blaming foreigners for measles outbreak damage control to protect MMR vaccine?

You won't hear much about any of this from the mainstream media, which is violently lashing out in response to growing awareness about the dangers and ineffectiveness of vaccines, and the MMR vaccine in particular. Still, more and more parents are discovering the truth, despite what the media is telling them.

Perhaps this is why the official story surrounding the Disneyland measles outbreak is suddenly changing, with illegal immigrants as the new scapegoats. Is this another instance of damage control resulting from the public not buying that the unvaccinated are to blame for spreading measles? The signs are pointing to yes.

"Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals," added Manookian, who is calling for health officials to institute a mandatory two-week quarantine for all children and adults who receive the MMR vaccine.

"CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who've been recently vaccinated."

Measles-related deaths, it's important to note, dropped significantly in the years leading up to when the first measles vaccine was introduced in 1963. By that time, improved sanitation and nutrition had already made measles a non-issue, and the vaccine wholly unnecessary by all statistical accounts.
