She said children in the camp had measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat as well as mental and emotional issues. "It was not a good atmosphere in terms of health," she said. "I would be talking to children and lice would just be climbing down their hair."Clearly, the Administration sees the present tidal wave of illegal aliens surging across the Mexican border (which has reportedly diverted 70% of the CBP agents away from security and law enforcement and toward providing care for "unaccomanied minors and incomplete family units" in some sectors, a step which is sure to exacerbate the problem) solely as a humanitarian issue with a minor public-health component, and not a border-security or law enforcement issue. Which makes sense given the ideological bent of this Administration, one that clearly welcomes the importation and placement of millions of grateful future Democrats on the welfare rolls. And the most transparent Administration in history is wise to keep a lid on this, lest the rubes in flyover territory start panicking about the tens of thousands of disease vectors that they are transporting on commercial airliners and buses to military bases and federal compounds across the country and far away from the border. They are wise as well to keep the optics of this under control; no squalid refugee camps at the Mexican border, pictures of which would be displayed on the nightly news (or at least on Fox and Drudge) for all to see. No, instead these illegal migrants are hidden away in places where cameras cannot go, and the light of public scrutiny on the actions of the government cannot shine.
A former nurse at the camp told me she was horrified by what she saw. "We have so many kids coming in that there was no way to control all of the sickness - all this stuff coming into the country," she said. "We were very concerned at one point about strep going around the base."
Both the counselor and the nurse said their superiors tried to cover up the extent of the illnesses. "When they found out the kids had scabies, the charge nurse was adamant - 'Don't mention that. Don't say scabies,'" the nurse recounted. "But everybody knew they had scabies. Some of the workers were very concerned about touching things and picking things up. They asked if they should be concerned, but they were told don't worry about it."
The nurse said the lice issue was epidemic - but everything was kept hush-hush. "You could see the bugs crawling through their hair," she said. "After we would rinse out their hair, the sink would be loaded with black bugs." The nurse told me she became especially alarmed because their files indicated the children had been transported to Lackland on domestic charter buses and airplanes. "That's what alerted me," she said. "Oh, my God. They're flying these kids around. Nobody knows that these children have scabies and lice. To tell you the truth, there's no way to control it."
The counselor told me the refugee camp resembled a giant emergency room - off limits to the public. "They did not want the community to know," she said. "I initially spoke out at Lackland because I had a concern the children's mental health care was not being taken care of."
She said the breaking point came when camp officials refused to hospitalize several children who were suicidal.
"I made a recommendation that a child needed to be sent to a psychiatric unit," the counselor told me. "He was reaching psychosis. He was suicidal. Instead of treating him, they sent him off to a family in the United States."
She said she filed a Child Protective Services report and quit her job. "I didn't want to lose my license if this kid committed suicide," she told me. "I was done."
Baptist Family & Children's Services spokeswoman Krista Piferrer tells me the agency takes "any allegation of malfeasance or inappropriate care of a child very seriously."
"There are a number of checks and balances to ensure children are receiving appropriate and adequate mental health care," she said.
Piferrer said the clinicians are supervised by a federal field specialist from HHS's Office of Refugee Resettlement. She also said BFCS have 58 medical professionals serving at Lackland.
"Every illness, whether it is a headache or something more serious, is recorded in a child's electronic medical record and posted on WebEOC - a real-time, web-based platform that is visible to not only BFCS but the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services," she said.

Secrecy Surrounds Disease Environment Accompanying Cloward-Piven Human Flood
Apparently the Administration has the long game in mind regarding the Cloward-Piven human flood they started:
