Gov. of ‘Sanctuary State’ Declares Hepatitis A Outbreak State of Emergency

by Steve MacDonald

Jerry BrownGovernor Moonbeam Jerry Brown’s open borders, sanctuary state is in the news again.

California Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday declared a state of emergency to control a hepatitis A outbreak.

Last month, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency declared local outbreaks in September. The Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency began issuing health alerts about the virus in May.

A third world problem comes to a first world sanctuary state? No kidding, really?

Santa Cruz County has had at least 73 cases of the virus since April, San Diego County has had 490 cases and 18 deaths, and Los Angeles County has had 10 cases, eight of which were linked to outbreaks in the other two counties.

Eighteen dead, so far.

Over at USA Today, they report that,

California has distributed 81,000 federally-funded vaccine doses since the outbreak began and local jurisdictions have acquired more but the supply is insufficient, Chavez said.

But, according to Jerry Brown, the federally-funded supply of vaccines is inadequate.

So, California wants more federal money to pay for vaccines to backstop an open borders policy that violates federal law.

Chew on the irony of that while you consider this. While my search cannot be called exhaustive, I have yet to find the word immigrant in any of the reporting related to the outbreak.

None of the major media reporting I checked suggested a source for the spread other than the default,

Hepatitis A is usually spread by mouth through contact with objects, food or drinks contaminated by the feces of an infected person. 

And that,

California is experiencing the largest hepatitis A outbreak in the United States transmitted from person to person — instead of by contaminated food — since the vaccine became available in 1996. 

The homeless (they have homeless in Jerry Brown’s utopia?), and drug users are reportedly hit hardest.

The outbreak was caused by strains of the 1B genetic subtype, which is rare in the United States and more commonly found in the Mediterranean and South Africa. It is spread through contact with feces, putting people with inadequate access to sanitation at highest risk.

It’s common in most of Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, and everywhere(actually) except for a handful of Western-style Democracies. Oh, and now it’s common in Southern California.

    The hepatitis epidemic is driven by more than just illegal aliens. Its also driven by the gay lifestyle and drug use, all problems supported by the Brown administration. As long as California supports the presence of illegals, gay bath houses, and drug use with no penalties, the epidemic will roll on.

    Reminds me of the Rush Limbaugh joke.

    The only logical and fair thing to do is put troops along the border of California and quarantine the entire state. That way the people of California get their wish of being separated from the US and we are protected from that diseased (literal and political) state.
    Sounds like a win, win to me.

    • Most of California is not batsh*t crazy so we could probably get away with using the major faults as a guide and just quarantine the major cities on the coast and most of southern Cali and that would get the job done.

        Agreed, I lived in So Cal for the better part of 6 years and know for a fact that there is a huge portion of Californians that are active or retired military that are on the side of Traditional America.
        They would need to be extracted and brought to a safe area before we begin any type of large scale Bio Hazard Decon procedure.
        Hey this sounds like the makings for a new FPS game.

    I just read an article on the web site, California Healthline, there is a growing epidemic of syphilis in the state linked to the gay lifestyle. The form of the disease caused by the epidemic is called “ocular” syphilis causes the victim to become blind. Not only do tax payers have to pay for the treatment of this disease, Social Security now has to cover the person as being disabled for the rest of his life. This cost is added to the costs related to HIV, STDs, and a multitude of other diseases caused by this “legal” lifestyle. However if you’re a smoker you’re public enemy number one. Go figure.

    • Might as well get a taxpayer funded sex change then. Someone seems to have convinced them that those will fix “everything.”

    Wait a minute didn’t Gov. Brown also say big pharma was not to be trusted, declaring an emergency isn’t that a trick to get more money from the US Government while ignoring the US Governments laws on border security and removing invaders, say said invaders spreading sickness,drugs, murder and death….yeah I though so, enjoy your sanctuary city sickness Moon Unit Jerry Brown and all his voters!

    There’s a large contingent of conservatives in SoCal who are victims of the Socialist whims of the rest of the state. Of course, their taxes are carrying the freeloaders and parasites. Taxation without representation at its finest.
