7 Refugees With Active Tuberculosis Sent To Idaho

Last week we published an article titled, "What's Going On In Twin Falls Idaho?"

I strongly recommend you read it if you have not done so.

Today, we know a little more about what's going on in Twin Falls.

The Obama-appointed US Attorney for Idaho is threatening legal action against those in the community---and elsewhere--- who are "spreading false information or inflammatory information or threatening statements" regarding the alleged sexual assault by 3 Muslim refugee boys against a 5-year-old girl.

We also know now that the federal government has brought into the small community at least 7 refugees with active tuberculosis---and has done so in a number of other states.

Franklin Graham is holding a prayer rally today at 12 Noon on the steps of the Capital in Olympia. Please attend if possible. Please pray God's blessing on the event.

What's Going On In Twin Falls Idaho?

The Washington Post first reported that "a 5-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted three boys ages 7, 10 and 14" in an apartment house.

The Post said, "The exact nature of the sexual assault is unclear, but apparently the 7-year-old touched the girl, and it seems that the 10 and 14-year-old are being charged because they put the 7-year-old up to this."

The citizens in Twin Falls know more than the press is generally reporting but are being kept in the dark on too much of what's going on. And some of the locals are angry.

And some of what is being said is not true. But much truth is being covered up by the local authorities.

Enter the federal government.

The Washington Post has now published an updated op-ed written by a UCLA law professor who questions whether the US Attorney for Idaho has the legal right to make the statements she is now making---while seeming to assure the reader everything is under control.

Obama-appointed US Attorney for Idaho Wendy Olson came out last weekend with a statement on the matter---a highly unusual step for a US State Attorney.

Her statement said in part, "The United States Attorney's office further encourages community members in Twin Falls and throughout Idaho to remain calm and supportive, to pay close attention to the facts that have been released by law enforcement and the prosecuting attorney, and to avoid spreading false rumors and inaccuracies."

She also seemed to threaten those who do not comply: "The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law."

Red State references the Washington Post op-ed, adding that the US Attorney for Idaho is herself lying in her statement.

Yesterday, we learned that the federal government has brought into the community at least 7 refugees who have active tuberculosis.

Breitbart News says, "This makes Idaho the seventh state to confirm that recently arrived refugees have been diagnosed with active TB."

Other states include Louisiana (21), Florida (11), Colorado (10), Indiana (4), Kentucky (9-all in one county), and North Dakota (4).

Why all the secrecy?

The quick and easy answer by politicians and the press is to protect refugees from antagonistic citizens who oppose migration and Obama's refugee program.

The truthful answer probably lies more in this:

Idaho is one of 14 states that have withdrawn from the federal refugee resettlement program where the federal government has hired a voluntary agency (VOLAG) to resettle refugees under the statutorily questionable "Wilson Fish alternative program."

In Idaho, the federal government has contracted the Idaho Office for Refugees (IOR), a division of the large non-profit known as Janus, to run the program. Janus is one of the largest organizations within the very lucrative and politically connected refugee resettlement industry, which is paid more than $1 billion per year by Obama's federal government.

Jan Reeves, the man who runs IOR, was honored by the Obama administration at the White House in 2013 as a "champion for change."

During the ceremony. the White House said this about Reeves:

"During the past 5 years, Mr. Reeves, in partnership with the city of Boise Mayor's Office, has led the effort to more fully integrate refugees into the community and create a more welcoming environment for all newcomers. Through a successful engagement of dozens of community partners, this has led to the development and implementation of Boise's first Refugee Community Plan."

A billion dollars annually flow to this contractor and its subsidiaries.

Idaho is a profile of other instate refugee resettlement operations.

Between 2011 and 2015, 4,650 refugees were resettled in Idaho. Of these, 17% were from Iraq, 15% from Democratic Republic of the Congo, 12% from Bhutan and 11% from Burma.

Authorities say 90% of these refugees were screened within the first 3 months of their arrival in Idaho.

Of those screened, 21% tested positive for live active tuberculosis (LTBI).

Only 4% of the general population in the US tests positive for LTBI.

A recent UC San Diego study concluded that high rates of LTBI among resettled refugees "increase the risk of active TB in refugee resettlement communities."

The rate of LTBI among refugees resettled in other states ranges from 35% to 12% as follows: Vermont 35%, Tennessee 27%, Indiana 26%, Minnesota 22%, Texas 15%, and California 12%.

After 23 consecutive years of decline in TB cases, last year there was an increase. By all estimations, this is a result increasing refugee resettlement by an administration that by their own admission, are not able to properly vet those coming in.

There is more information here. Breitbart News is conducting an ongoing investigative report.

They say after pressing the state of Idaho, the state is becoming a bit more forthcoming than some of the other states with similar circumstances, however, there are still unanswered questions in Idaho and elsewhere.

North Dakota has also been caught lying about similar issues.

The secrecy and stonewalling seem to revolve around the administration advancing an open borders ideology that more and more citizens are rejecting. The authorities directly linked to this administration try to cover or downplay facts that don't enhance their political polices and ideology.

And, it's about the money. Much like the abortion industry and the poverty industry, a lucrative industry has grown up around the resettlement business. Hundreds of millions of dollars are being made by those who are well connected, creating a culture of corruption.

It was James Garfield, our 20th President, who in an article titled, "A Century of Progress" published in The Atlantic in 1877 said:

"Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because those the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature."

He continued, "If the next centennial does not find us a great will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces."

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful.

  1. A friendly correction: LTBI stands for "latent TB infection," not "live. active TB." Latent infections are, by definition, characterized by being asymptomatic and with no evidence of active infection. Live TB bacteria are non-demonstrable, but persistent immune response (positive "tuberculin" test) is present. This situation is most often caused by a subclinical, resolved infection or immunization with BCG. A 4% active TB rate in the general population would be a major epidemic!
