Border Patrol Agents Threatened with Criminal Charges for Speaking to Reporters
HOUSTON, Texas (June 13, 2014) —A surge of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has left federal resources and facilities overwhelmed. Most of the new migrants are children from Central America. In the aftermath of Breitbart Texas releasing photos showing minors warehoused in crowded U.S. cells, Border Patrol agents in Texas have been instructed not to speak to media outlets.
The Associated Press (AP) obtained an email from Eligio “Lee” Pena, an assistant patrol agent, that ordered more than 3,000 agents to not speak to reporters about the “humanitarian crisis.” The email allegedly said that reporters are likely to press for details and “may try to disguise themselves” in the process.”
Border Patrol threatened with arrest if they talk about infectious diseases being carried by illegal immigrants
It is being reported in several different places that some of the illegal aliens who are flooding over the border since Barack Obama used Executive Orders to implement defacto amnesty and the DREAM Act are carrying infectious diseases.
Now, according to this story, some whistleblowers are coming forward with claims they have been threatened with arrest if they came forward with this issue.
Here is more:
A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.
In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.
“There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told me. “We were under orders not to say anything.”
The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.
The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”
“It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”
She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.
“Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”
She said children in the camp had measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat as well as mental and emotional issues.
“It was not a good atmosphere in terms of health,” she said. “I would be talking to children and lice would just be climbing down their hair.”
A former nurse at the camp told me she was horrified by what she saw.
“We have so many kids coming in that there was no way to control all of the sickness – all this stuff coming into the country,” she said. “We were very concerned at one point about strep going around the base.”
Both the counselor and the nurse said their superiors tried to cover up the extent of the illnesses.
“When they found out the kids had scabies, the charge nurse was adamant – ‘Don’t mention that. Don’t say scabies,’” the nurse recounted. “But everybody knew they had scabies. Some of the workers were very concerned about touching things and picking things up. They asked if they should be concerned, but they were told don’t worry about it.”
The nurse said the lice issue was epidemic – but everything was kept “hush-hush.”
Of course now that this story is out Barack Obama and the Democrats will use it to promote this as a humanitarian crisis while ignoring the fact they manufactured this crisis in the first place. They will say this is proof that these people need to stay here so they can get the care they so desperately need…..

Questions swirl as more immigrants hospitalized
Zermeno said Border Patrol agents were being pulled off the line to help with processing the immigrants. Zermeno told 10News this could pose a safety issue due to less agents on the street.
Meanwhile, 40 were being quarantined at the Border Patrol Chula Vista Station with active scabies and head lice. The facility will provide them with showers, laundry service and bedding. Another 10 people, mostly children, were taken to local hospitals with unknown illnesses.

Border Patrol union claims scabies ‘outbreak’ threatens agents, public (July 7, 2014)
A Border Patrol union claims that illegal immigrant minors are coming into the U.S. with “active scabies and other illnesses,” claiming one of its agents already has contracted the mite-borne skin infection and warning it could spread into surrounding communities if precautions are not taken.
The union’s warning comes amid claims of tuberculosis at one camp in San Antonio and Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s testimony last week of a confirmed case of H1N1, or swine flu.
The medical issues pertain to illegal immigrant minors crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and being detained in Texas and other states. The most detailed information so far has come out of the San Diego Local 1613 chapter of the National Border Patrol Council.
He added that agents do not know which detainee may have passed on the illness, and said they suspect “they could have been already transferred to ICE custody and may have already been released in the surrounding communities.”
According to the CDC, scabies is caused by the human itch mite, which burrows into the top layer of a person’s skin and lays its eggs. Symptoms include severe itching and a skin rash. The infection can spread rapidly in crowded areas like “nursing homes, extended-care facilities, and prisons.”

Now reports from an informer inside Customs and Border Protection says that the civilians were not alone in their refusal to allow the federal government to violate their constitutional guarantees of free speech and assembly. Border Patrol agents reportedly told their superiors that they would “stand down” if the Department of Homeland Security carried out its threat to use force to end the peaceful demonstrations.
