It would have almost certainly showed up in those states where they were being detained or came into first, then spread out. Not showed up in farther away states. This isn't something that has a vaccination, so even that wouldn't have mattered.
    I err on the side of caution where my grandchildren are concerned. How about you?

    Like I said, we have many cases of a stomach bug here which could be in the same family of viruses. Give it a few weeks to see if the respiratory version shows up in other states.

    Extremely poor correlation with the reported cases of this particular illness. Thanks for proving my point.

    Like seriously, statistically speaking this would be better evidence that immigrant children prevent this illness.

    Border states likely have a higher immunity to foreign diseases and such because we've been exposed on a greater basis for years.

    As I've said, I expect my children to get sick. I do not blame anyone for bringing it in. Illness is part of nature. I'd prefer not to have them exposed to deadly viruses, where the majority die from it, especially if they would be within the "vulnerable" group, but I can deal with other non-deadly illnesses, like this one. It builds up their immunities. It sucks to have them sick, but most of these things won't actually kill them. This one hasn't killed any children so far, and neither of my children have asthma or other issues that would leave them vulnerable, and that is assuming that whatever they had this past week, which they are getting over, wasn't this illness.

    Sorry, but I doubt you really do err on the side of caution. Do your grandchildren wear surgical masks when they come visit you or you them? If not, then you really aren't that cautious. This is just another faux outrage by the right to use the immigration situation as fear mongering.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I really do think the border should be secure and I agree with most of the rights reason for it but this fear mongering of "OMG THINK OF THE CHILDREN" excuse is lame. I can think of far more valid reasons to secure the border than some fruit balls trying to coorleate a respiratory illness all of a suddn to the border crisis.

    More deflection from the Obama deranged syndrome team. Everything I said IS valid, despite your saying it isn't. Don't like it go pound sand. Your deflection and unable to answer is noted.

    Still can't answer huh? Not suprised. I find most cons run away scared when presented the truth compared to their fear mongering.

    Mental gymnastics gold medalist WCH, everybody.

    Look, even with this "higher immunity" to "foreign diseases" nonsense, the correlation still fails miserably. Whatever the opposite of a correlation is, this is it right here. This is not the Obamavirus you so desperately want it to be.

    CDC says it's probably a relative of the rhinovirus. The common cold. But no. WCH, internet viral epidemiologist, says it must be Obama's fault based on zero evidence.
