What the f…?
Via Washington Examiner:
The administration has decided to let immigrants with three sexually transmitted diseases known for causing sores or lesions on genitalia to enter the United States, an expansion of a previous decision to let in those with HIV.
The Department of Health and Human Services this month opened the borders to those with the STDs, deeming the communicable diseases not a big threat to the United States.
A report from the Centers for Immigration Studies said that HHS does not believe that the costs to taxpayers to handle the immigrants with STDs will be significant.
Now, said the Center, the list of inadmissible communicable diseases only includes syphilis, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, and leprosy.
“So what about the costs associated with the new rule change on the three remaining STDs? Don’t worry, Obama’s HHS secretary ran the numbers and explained in the Federal Register that, ‘The results are not economically significant, i.e. more than $100 million of costs and benefits in a single year.’ In other words, the cost of welcoming in aliens with these STDs will be below $100 million every year,” said the CIS report.
