Well those that have been opposed to the immigration of so many into this country have been proven to be well-founded. Instead of deporting them as they come in our Government thinks its best to detain and pile them up in a facility in Arizona. Well, it’s all finally come to a head. An outbreak of measles has now reached 11 cases, and is spreading fast. Welcome to Obama’s and Hillary’s America! This type of thing isn’t going to end with deporting of illegal immigrants, the one being brought in the guise of “refugees” will bring disease as well. They claim to medically clear them but we all know the truth is never what it appears to be.

CASA GRANDE Reports— Health officials say more measles cases have been reported in Pinal County stemming from an outbreak last week at a private detention center in Eloy. Officials say Eloy Detention Center, which houses undocumented immigrants, has taken steps to prevent further spread of the highly contagious disease. Cases of the disease were reported last week in an inmate and employee at the facility.   Health officials have issued a community-wide health alert for Pinal County as one of the new cases visited multiple locations in and around Casa Grande from May 15 through May 22. “It’s extremely important that people who have a rash and fever call their health care provider or emergency department ahead of time to let them know they may have measles,” said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. “This will help stop the spread of measles, especially to those who are more at risk of developing complications.”

Public exposure for the new cases include:

Officials with Cottonwood Medical Center were contacted Saturday by the Pinal County Public Health Department and advised that a patient seen at the office May 18 is considered an active measles case. “Confirmation testing is still underway for this patient, but even in cases of suspicion, we must consider anyone who is not immune to measles and in the office at that time as potentially exposed to the virus,” the center said in a release.

Public Health continues to investigate contacts and places of exposure for these new cases. For information on signs and symptoms of measles, or where you can find vaccine, visit StoptheSpreadAZ.com. Medical questions should be directed to your health care provider.

For outbreak-related questions, community members may call 602-839-2275.

“Measles is one of the most communicable diseases there is. Ninety percent of non-immune people exposed to measles will get the disease,” Christ said. “It’s a viral disease of the upper respiratory system that is spread in the air and through droplet spread if the person coughs or sneezes. It can linger in the air, exposing people for up to two hours.”
