As if there were not tons of issues with the southern border you can now add another to the list.
A migrant with a flesh eating bacteria was stopped at the border.
Which begs the question, how many migrants with this disease have made it into the United States.
The migrant who crossed with a group is now being treated, WKRC reported.
A man who was in Border Patrol custody had to be treated for a flesh-eating bacteria.
The migrant who was already in custody at the Lordsburg, N.M. Border Patrol station told an agent Thursday about a growing rash he had.
He was taken to a medical facility for evaluation. Officials said hospital staff diagnosed him with a flesh-eating bacteria. They said he needed more extensive treatment.
“We’re seeing for example, chicken pox, different strands of influenza, syphilis, scabies. This is something that we see with the illegal aliens and we have to provide treatment for them,” said Carlos Antúnez with U.S. Customs and Border Protections.
On the same day, a large group crossed illegally at the southern New Mexico border, said a Border Patrol official.
A group of 306 migrants crossing illegally were taken into custody by border patrol agents working at Camp Bounds Forward Operating Base at the Antelope Wells Port of Entry.
This group consisted mostly of Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles, they said.

Send him to testify in Congress. We need to ask him how he got infected.
