If it’s a day that ends in y, you can bet that Obama’s administration is doing something to make Americans less safe from refugees. This time, he’s loosening a ban on who can come to this country with serious diseases.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the administration is set to end the ban on people immigrating to the United States with chancroid, granuloma inguinale, and lymphogranuloma venereum, three venereal diseases.
“Accordingly, this (final rule) will: Revise the definition of communicable disease of public health significance by removing, granuloma inguinale, and lymphogranuloma venereum as inadmissible health-related conditions for aliens seeking admission to the United States,” an entry in the Federal Registry read.
And this isn’t anything minor, either. Now, the only “communicable diseases of public health significance” will be tuberculosis, leprosy, syphilis, and gonorrhea.
“This change in policy illustrates, once again, that increased immigration is the main goal of the Obama administration, no matter the costs,” CIS’s legal policy analyst Jon Feere said in a statement.
“The administration itself estimates that more people will become infected and that there will be increased health care costs as a result of these changes. But obviously these are considerations that have little relevance for those with an open-border perspective.”
“(I)t means that plenty of dangerous aliens get a pass and it means that violence has largely become a prerequisite for immigration enforcement. Similarly, the change in STD policies means that many infections are potentially being ignored,” Feere wrote.
Needless to say, this caused some consternation on social media.

This is just another indication that the Obama administration cares not a whit for your safety. It’s all based around the fact that Obama wants to let as many immigrants in as possible for the most cynical electoral reasons.
As for the safety of the American people, let it be damned.
