Hello Jeff...Below are two articles on EXISTING CDC Laws of inadmissibility
to the US on health grounds. Most 'refugees' being injected
into America have HIV AIDS, TB all types, Chagas, Malaria, Leprosy, MANY
STDs like Syphilis, and all sorts of parasites, worms, bacteria and viruses.
The CDC is using BSL 4 planes just to bring sick ones into the US for
treatment. That is a crime against America in my opinion.
They should be treated in their own countries. They are bringing in non
US citizens...foreign nationals from Africa and elsewhere. The CDC
planes are supposed to be used for American citizens who get sick abroad
Trump needs to examine the use of the Ebola planes. He can certainly order
the CDC to stop bringing in sick Africans etc. Why is the CDC doing
Center For Disease Control New Laws May Restrict Liberian Travelers
Feb 3, 2017
USA - U.S. President Donald Trump is on record for his disgust for people
who had had some sort of infection like the Ebola Virus Disease entering
the United States of America.
In August 2014 he tweeted, “The U.S. cannot allow Ebola infected people
back. People that go to faraway places to help out are great - but must
suffer the consequences!”
Travelers from Liberia including business owners and aid agencies could
come under immense scrutiny should another Ebola-like communicable disease
hit the country under a new and more robust regulation being undertaken
by the U.S. Center For Disease Control (CDC).
The new CDC regulation is going to put enormous pressure on who the CDC
allows to enter the United States.
The outlined changes, according to media report, are being welcomed by
many health lawyers, bioethicists and public health specialists as providing
important tools for protecting the public.
But the CDC's increased authority is also raising fears that the rules
could be misused in ways that violate civil liberties.
The update of the regulation was finalized at the end of the Obama administration
and was scheduled to go into effect February 21.
But the Trump administration is reviewing the changes as part of its review
of new regulations. So the soonest the changes could go into effect has
been pushed to the end of March.
Trump is on record for his disgust for people who had had some sort of
infection like Ebola entering the U.S. In August 2014 he tweeted -
“The U.S. cannot allow Ebola infected people back. People that go to far
away places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences!”
The United States, during the Obama administration turned over a thousand
of its battle line soldiers to humanitarian workers in 2014 during the
height of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia.
Their mission was to set up an isolation centers for doctors and other
health-care workers infected with the deadly disease. About 4,000 troops
were deployed in the country.
With President Trump’s 40 percent aid fund cut, there are rising concerns
about the role of the United States in countries like Liberia that had
enormously depended on aid from the United States through various projects
and interventions by U.S. agencies operating in Liberia.
The drafted executive order establishes a committee to recommend where
those funding cuts should be made.
It asks the committee to look specifically at United States funding for
peacekeeping operations; the International Criminal Court; development
aid to countries that “oppose important United States policies”; and the
United Nations Population Fund, which oversees maternal and reproductive
If President Trump signs the order and its provisions are carried out,
the cuts could severely curtail the work of United Nations agencies, which
rely on billions of dollars in annual United States contributions for
missions that include caring for refugees.
President Trump on last Friday signed an executive order to weed out would-be
immigrants who are likely to require public assistance, as well as to
deport — when possible — immigrants already living in the United States
who depend on taxpayer help, according to a draft executive order obtained
by The Washington Post.
Providing clarity on the matter, the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia informed
FrontPageAfrica that “The executive order issued last Friday does not
address persons likely to be a public charge.
However, persons likely to be a public charge are already (and have always
been) ineligible to enter the United States.
This is why the majority of immigrant visa applicants are required to
submit an adequate affidavit of financial support from their sponsors
in the United States.
If an applicant submits an inadequate affidavit of financial support,
the case is put in pending status until such time as an adequate affidavit
of financial support is submitted.
“Under current law and policy, Legal Permanent Residents do not become
deportable if they find themselves requiring public assistance.
On the contrary, once someone becomes a Legal Permanent Resident, he or
she has access to a variety of social assistance programs.”
Health-Related Grounds For Inadmissibility To The United States
By Jordi S Bayer
While you will not be denied admission to the United states for having
a common cold or flu, there are certain medical grounds of inadmissibility
that are designed to protect the health of the general public in the United
States. The requisite immigration medical examination report and vaccination
record provide important information that the U.S. Department of State
(“DOS”) and U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (“USCIS”) use
to determine whether an individual meets health-related standards for
The Medical Examination
During the immigration medical exam, the doctor will perform a physical
examination and review your medical history, vaccination records and lab
results. Individuals who are in the United States and applying for adjustment
of status will need to make this appointment with a USCIS-designated civil
surgeon. For those who are applying for immigrant visas through consular
processing at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad, a visit to a DOS-approved
panel physician is required.
After the examination, the doctor will prepare a medical examination report
with his or her findings. You may be deemed inadmissible to the United
States on health-related grounds if you:
Have a communicable disease of public health significance
Fail to provide proof of required vaccinations
Have a physical or mental disorder that causes you to behave in a way
that makes you harmful to yourself or others
Have a history of drug abuse or addiction
Communicable Diseases of Public Health Significance
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) maintains a list of communicable
diseases that would cause someone to fail their medical examination or
be prevented from entering the United States. Such diseases include the
Syphilis (infectious stage)
Hansen's Disease (Leprosy, infectious)
There are also two additional general categories of communicable diseases
of public health significance that only apply to applicants abroad who
are examined by panel physicians:
Communicable diseases that may make a person subject to quarantine, as
listed in a Presidential Executive Order (currently cholera, diphtheria,
infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, and viral hemorrhagic
fevers, among others)
Communicable diseases that may cause a public health emergency of international
concern (“PHEIC”) (currently polio, smallpox, SARS, influenza)
As of January 2010, HIV infection is no longer defined as a communicable
disease of public health significance and does not make an individual
inadmissible on health-related grounds for any immigration benefit.
At the time of your medical examination, the doctor will determine whether
you have traces of any of the abovementioned communicable diseases by
conducting a physical exam and evaluating your medical record, travel
history, and blood work.
Failure to Show Proof of Required Vaccinations
If you are applying for an immigrant visa, you are required to be vaccinated
for several diseases, including mumps, measles, rubella, and polio, among
others. In order to avoid the need to be revaccinated at your immigration
medical examination, you should bring a copy of your vaccination records
with you as proof of past vaccinations.
If any of the required vaccinations are not received, you will be deemed
inadmissible. However, some vaccinations are not required if they are
not age / medically appropriate. For instance, certain vaccines are not
medically appropriate during pregnancy (known as a “medical contraindication”).
If this is the case, that vaccine requirement will be waived as not medically
Physical or Mental Disorder with Associated Harmful Behavior
Individuals who are diagnosed with physical or mental disorders with associated
harmful behavior are inadmissible. You may even be found inadmissible
for a prior harmful disorder, if that disorder is likely to recur. Harmful
behavior is that which causes psychological or physical injury or poses
a threat to the property, safety, or welfare of the self or others. For
instance, if you have a history of pedophilia or suicidal behavior you
will be inadmissible on this ground.
Additionally, alcohol use disorders are treated as a physical or mental
disorder for purposes of determining inadmissibility. However, someone
with an alcohol use disorder will only be deemed inadmissible if this
disorder is also associated with current harmful behavior or past harmful
behavior that is likely to recur. A record of alcohol-related offenses
with associated harmful behavior, such as an accident when driving while
intoxicated (“DWI”) or driving under the influence (“DUI”), or domestic
violence involving alcohol could lead to a referral for a mental examination
and a subsequent finding of inadmissibility.
Moreover, DOS recently released an updated Foreign Affairs Manual (“FAM”)
which included a new prudential visa revocation provision requiring U.S.
consular posts to revoke nonimmigrant visas for DUI arrests. This is very
different from the previous policy in which an applicant with a prior
DUI conviction would be required to provide a report from a panel physician,
but was not automatically barred from admission. In explaining this marked
change, DOS explained that a DUI arrest in itself may demonstrate visa
ineligibility for a physical or mental disorder with associated harmful
Drug Abuse or Addiction
A history of drug abuse or addiction according to the Diagnostic and Statistical
Manual of Mental Disorders (“DSM”) will make you inadmissible to the United
States on health-related grounds. Drug abuse is defined as anything beyond
a single non-medical use of a controlled substance. If you are classified
as a drug abuser or addict, you can only apply for immigration benefits
if the drug abuse or addiction is in remission.
Drug tests are not administered at every immigration medical examination;
the physician conducting the exam will determine whether a drug test is
necessary on a case-by-case basis. For example, if an individual has a
prior drug-related arrest or conviction, a doctor may determine that a
drug test is necessary as part of the medical exam. Note that a drug-related
arrest or conviction could also make someone inadmissible on criminal
Waiver of Health-Related Grounds of Inadmissibility
Under INA 212(g), USCIS can provide waivers for some medical grounds of
inadmissibility. Depending on the immigration benefit sought, there
are waivers available for all health-related grounds of inadmissibility
except drug abuse and addiction. USCIS will balance the U.S. public health
interests against family unity and an applicant’s needs in deciding whether
to grant waivers of health-related inadmissibility.
Thus, we recommend consulting with your immigration lawyer before applying
for a U.S. visa or green card if you may be subject to a health-related
ground of inadmissibility to determine if a waiver is available.
