Protective Intelligence and Assessment Private-Sector Intelligence Lyle@Sentinelintelligenceservices.com. Intelligence Briefing/Healthcare Issues Medical Time Bomb – Illegals and Refugees flowing into the United States CONFIDENTIAL – RESTRICTED DISTRIBUTION: MEMORANDUM: TO: Mr. Donald J. Trump Republican Nominee for President of the United States Dr. Ben Carson Senior Advisor to Republican Nominee Donald Trump RE: Medical challenges spreading across the United States traced to illegals and Refugees DATE: September the 9th, 2016.
While the rhetoric regarding illegal crossings flowing into America and the concomitant influx of Middle Eastern “Refugees” into targeted States rages, the intelligence contained in this Briefing Summary transcends the debates, issues of political correctness, and politics in general. The content herein stated is already at a critical stature, and could quickly spiral out-of-control and represent a pandemic set of circumstances. You will receive unvarnished candor about the growing concerns health care professionals already are confronting in over twelve states, and multiplying. This memorandum stems from a formal closed-door Intelligence Briefing I provided at the Arizona State Senate on August 17th, 2016. We are now about one month later, and the conditions in multiple states, including the Border States of Arizona, California, and Texas are reportedly more challenging, and purposefully kept under the public radar.

Among the most remarkable acute diseases arriving with illegals are: scurvy, measles, chicken-pox, acute explosive diarrhea with third-world bacterial agents, and unknown bacteria and parasites attempting to resist antibiotics, as well as pernicious and new forms of lice and worms. It is well known, but concealed and not reported to local and State health officials by the Federal Government, large segments of the unaccompanied children coming into America are seriously ill coupled with remarkable malnourished syndrome.
Additionally, numbers of TB cases are increasing rapidly, including treatment resistant TB. The Federal Government has now increased the speed and volume of third-world populations into the United States; interestingly, especially into politically conservative states. The calculated work of the Feds has led to Muslims by the thousands from mostly terribly underdeveloped and deteriorating Muslim countries, including those Islamic Nations hostile to the United States, now arriving. The U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest has presented official figures depicting a massive spike in Green Cards for Middle Easterners; most notably, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, and Iran. In 2014 (the most recent year for which data is available) the U.S. awarded Green Cards to 103,901 immigrants from Middle Eastern countries entitling the holder to permanent legal status, federal benefits, and a direct path to US citizenship.
This is a 32% increase from the 78,917 given the year prior. These numbers do not reflect the numbers of illegals and Middle Easterners successfully entering America from our unsecure southern Border. There are unknown numbers of third-world humanity stemming from Haiti, Central America, and South America. The influx of humanity that is being discarded by these third-world Muslim countries is astounding, and fearful.

These people bring nothing of value with them; no skills, no education, no work ethic or even moral framework. In point of fact, the preponderant majority of these people are hardened criminals, many purposefully released from prisons, and warriors who have only known civil war and strife by opposing gangs and warlords. Their health conditions are terrifying which will demand a response to stem the epidemic. For the first-time, medical professionals this past June found a person in Pennsylvania carrying a bacteria resistant to antibiotics. This finding is highly disturbing, and health officials are sobered and alarmed.
In the past two weeks, a high school in Manhattan, Kansas experienced an outbreak of unknown type of bacteria or parasite creating bloody diarrhea, coughing and fever in over 150-students. Parents were asked to collect specimens from their children for lab exams. Refugees dumped in Vermont, North Dakota, Nebraska, Maryland have acute TB. This past week in Riverside, California, two suspected cases of Leprosy have now been found on grade-school age children; Lab samples were sent to a specialty lab in Louisiana for confirmation but it will take 2-weeks for a definitive diagnosis. Here in Arizona, over 100-cases of chlorine resistant bacteria were discovered in a couple of city operated pools. At the federal level there is silence coupled with denial.
At the state level, for at least upwards of fifteen states, there is horror as to what they are challenged with now, and concerned with in months ahead. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other agencies coordinating mass refugee resettlement are quick to reassure the public that NO problems exist, that speculation is merely politically motivated. But data from health services in the States of Florida and Indiana belie that claim. These two states have aggressively been combating the out-of-control refugee resettlement program fully underway in America. The health services in these two states have confronted the political hogwash and typical political speak oxymoron spilling out from various federal agencies, especially the CDC.

As an example, State of Florida Health Officials caught the CDC officially listing refugees as diagnosed with TB as, “Active Tuberculosis – noninfectious.” Among the most serious responsibilities an Elected Official has upon being sworn into office is the responsibility to provide for the protection and welfare of the citizens to whom he/she serves. A ticking medical time bomb exists across America with the ever increasing rise of illegals from third-world countries, and the refugee relocation program sponsored by the Washington establishment. A Clear and Present danger that knows no political ideology or party or candidate, but is stealthily spreading seeking new places to hide is about to take up residence. The chance for contracting a vicious disease mentioned in this report becomes ever significant, and this statement is NOT political rhetoric. Respectfully submitted, Lyle J. Rapacki,Ph.D LYLE J.

Illegals and Refugees September 9, 2016 Medical Time Bomb NOW in America We are exposed to viruses, bacteria and parasites that the average American has not been exposed to previously. Doctors have not been trained to identify or treat some of these new diseases. We have NO antibiotic arsenal to defend against these superbugs especially CRE (Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae) and certain drug resistant TB. Centers for Disease Control estimates as many as 2 million antimicrobial-resistant infections occur in the U.S. each year resulting in 23,000 deaths. Unscreened refugees are being brought into our country and are being integrated into our communities: – NO background checks as to country of origin – NO previous medical history recorded – NO formal medical screening conducted – NO education on sanitation and basic hygiene practices Colistin is the antibiotic of last resort for particularly dangerous types of superbugs, and its failing! Wake-Up America and get ready for major illnesses.
A little known disease sweeping across the Middle East, Cutaneous Leishmaniasis leaves thousands disfigured and/or severely scarred. This disease is caused by a parasite found in the blood and is now showing up in America. No vaccines or drugs to prevent infection are available. Diseases can also be transmitted through infected livestock through the food chain to humans. Diseases are spread by more than 20 parasites, bacteria and worms associated with animals. Vast quantities of antibiotics are given to livestock and E-coli is becoming drug resistant. – Ground-breaking new research has revealed soaring levels of antibiotic resistance on beef, pork and chicken.
Overuse of antibiotics in farming is contributing to deadly drug resistance – a crisis predicted to kill one person every 3 seconds by 2050. Page 6 of 13 TB Statistics: More than 100 countries have reported individuals with TB, which is resistant to all or nearly all first- and second-line TB drugs. – The average cost for a hospital stay principally for a typical TB case was $20,100 – According to the CDC, care of patients with drug-resistant TB, costs many times more – $134,000 for a multidrug-resistant patient and $430,000 for an extensively drug-resistant patient – The uninsured and Medicaid accounted for a disproportionate share of TB hospitalizations In 2015, the largest number of refugees arriving in the United States were resettled in Texas (11 percent, or 7,479 persons) and California (8 percent, or 5,716). Large groups were also resettled in New York (6 percent, or 4,052), Arizona (5 percent, or 3,137), Michigan (4 percent, or 3,022), and Ohio (4 percent, or 2,989). Thirty-eight percent of all refugees were resettled in these top six states.
This data does not account for the 10,000 refuges that just arrived in the US nor the 86,000 Obama/Clinton want to relocate into America by January 1, 2017. The public isn’t being told all the information required to make informed decisions for their towns, communities, counties or states. Indiana – in 2015 – 400+/- migrants with latent TB settled in Indiana. In July 2016, refugees with ACTIVE TB are being permitted entry and quietly treated with your tax dollars. Indiana has a (26 percent) rate of TB infection among recently arrived refugees. Idaho – Seven refugees with active tuberculosis (TB) were diagnosed shortly after their resettlement in Idaho, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. 90% of the 4,650 refugees resettled in Idaho between 2011 and 2015, were medically screened within the first three months of their arrival, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
Of those screened, 21 percent (896) tested positive for TB. Minnesota – 150 cases of TB in 2015, a (22 percent) rate of TB infection among recently arrived refugees. Page 7 of 13 Oklahoma – Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstein was denied access last week to the HHS facility at Fort Sill – another facility run by BCFS. Vermont – Department of Health concealing the number of refugees with contagious active tuberculosis a month after it was reported that more than one-third of Vermont’s resettled refugees test positive for TB. Arizona – Active TB disease reported in Arizona totaled 198 in 2015. Of the 222 cases of active tuberculosis infection (TB) …reported among Arizona’s refugee populations…were caused by latent tuberculosis infections that became active…,” according to the state’s Department of Health. Eighteen percent “of all refugees resettled in Arizona arrive with a latent TB infection. Kentucky – 73 percent of recently arrived refugees who tested positive for LTBI did not successfully complete a treatment program, reported in 2013 study published by the University of Kentucky. Tennessee – (27 percent) rate of Latent TB infection among recently arrived refugees. Catholic Charities of Tennessee’s Office for Refugees, have failed to make to make public critical information on refugee tuberculosis (TB) health care. California – An estimated 2.5 million Californians have latent infection with tuberculosis; most are unaware of their infection and are untreated. 2,145 cases were reported in 2014. The estimated direct cost for active TB cases in California for 2014 was $51 million. Texas – Amarillo Mayor, “We’ve been trying to figure out the numbers for refugees and diseases for years,” Harpole said. “We’ve fought to get information from the (U.S.) State Department and (Texas) Health and Human Services. We got no help.”
New Hampshire – Governor Maggie Hassan has requested a temporary halt to the refugee program until she gets assurances and details from the federal government regarding its process for resettling them or for vetting them, which she said is currently veiled in secrecy. Kansas – More than two dozen cases of tuberculosis were detected at an eastern Kansas high school after coming into contact with an infected student. After widespread screening, state and county health officials announced Wednesday Page 8 of 13 the testing revealed 27 new cases of TB that hadn’t progressed to the contagious stage. North Dakota – Dr. John Baird, Health Officer for the Fargo Cass Public Health Dept. confirmed diagnosing and treating refugees with active TB barely a month after Lutheran Social Services denied that any refugees it has resettled in ND have been diagnosed with active TB. Additional states have experienced unique medical evidence of the spread of TB and other diseases in their states based on preliminary data. However, since it is not conclusive, those states were not listed in this briefing. [THIS SPACE LEFT INTENTIONALLY BLANK] Page 9 of 13 SENTINEL INTELLIGENCE SERVICES, LLC LYLE J.
