U.S. Somali Community Facing Huge Measles Outbreak

On Monday afternoon the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) announced that there are now 48 confirmed cases of measles in the state, the highest level in more than twenty years.

This represents an increase of four cases since the last report three days ago on Friday. The first case was diagnosed on April 11.

The outbreak has not expanded beyond the three counties where cases were previously confirmed.

Forty-five cases have been confirmed in Hennepin County, two in Ramsey County, and one in Crow Wing County.

Forty-five cases have been “confirmed to be unvaccinated. . . one had one dose of MMR [and] two had two doses of MMR,” according to MDH.

One of the new cases reported over the weekend is an adult, bringing the total number of cases confirmed in adults to two. The remaining 46 cases are “in children ages 0 through 10 years.”

As before, the majority of the cases are within the Somali community. “41 of the cases are Somali Minnesotan,” the MDH reports.

Of the 48 cases, “41 of the cases are Somali Minnesotan.”

    Barry, you let this disease back into America.

  • BikeIce

    “Huge” outbreak? Hardly. In the 50’s there were thousands of cases all over the USA and the vast majority survived to then have lifetime immunity to the disease. As a result, 95% of measles incidence faded away by the early 1960’s before the measles vaccine was ever developed.

    • Terry Butts

      A number so high measures to prevent the spread of such diseases were actually passed into the immigration laws passed in the 50’s.

      Many of which were ignored under obama’s term because the large number of “refugees” he wanted to bring into the US was unachievable if those laws were followed instead of abusing the WAIVER system that was supposed to be used only for special circumstances not because obama wanted thousands of refugees resettled before his time in office and control over the process ended.

  • John Edward Blake

    These diseases are being brought in by illegals and refugees.You my think we help them and they certainly drain the resources and benefits citizens who pay the taxes should be getting.But for everyone helped there are thousands upon thousands just waiting to get the benefits ,the jobs and the hope.But it cannot happen to the billions this way.We must go to them and teach them how to raise themselves.All sensibile people know it.The ones who don`t have vested interest and greed pushing them.Civilization always fails from within as history has shown.So will the west fail and then the Islamic culture fail and different civilizations will rise because of lack of insight.

    The gifts from the obamanation will haunt us for a long time. People from the 3rd world living a Lifestyle against the United States with an average IQ of 60 brought unchecked into The United States. What could Possibly go Wrong ? Well this for one thing, Drain on our resources, crime toward others, and Terrorism already evident from their actions. Thanks Barry Soetoro, NOT !

  • Agostino

    Besides language, the biggest problem for Americans posed by “refugees” is the absence of health data. Their vaccination records, if any, are unknown or unavailable. In the past, immigrants coming through Ellis Island received screenings for communicable diseases. It is also possible using blood tests to search for vaccinations. As far as I know this is not done.

    • Terry Butts

      Apparently it was not done on the ones issued waivers to speed up the refugee resettlement during obama’s time in office. After all such tests would slow down the process especially if immigration law concerning people who have communicable diseases was followed.

  • Dee

    and “dental” which has been determined to meet the ” Minimum Essential

    of ACA(Obamacare), thus, avoiding the penalties associated with not
    acquiring coverage. Thousands of Somali Muslims shipped to
    Twin Cities, Minnesota, most reporting high active tuberculosis, are
    overwhelming the health facilities of Minnesota. Other UN refugee
    dumping grounds are Colorado and Alaks. Beware of coughing Somalis.
    Folks in the States infected by these diseased are in many cases on

      Diversity” is a code word for White genocide

  • Terry Butts

    People seem to forget that under obama WAVERS were issued that allowed REFUGEES to skip most of the required immigration procedures. Now they are trying to blame those who express concern over the large number of side effects some of the vaccines have caused for this when US IMMIGRATION could have taken care of things before they were even relocated into this nation.

    Stopping the uncontrolled spread of disease was one of the reasons that immigration laws were written issuing WAVERS to thousands just to GET THEM IN THE NATION faster circumvents many of the protections that law was intended to provide the citizens of this nation.

    • olddawg1

      Those were actually waivers, not wavers. However, in this case you are accurate, because Immigraton officials simply “waved” as the refugees poured in.

      • Terry Butts

        Corrected the typo another failed reliance on spell check. Though I do imagine that was about all they did was wave as they went by considering the large number he allowed to pour into this nation there was not much time for anything else.

        • olddawg1

          Exactly! And you know that if this measles outbreak would not have happened until a couple of years from now, the liberals and the media (oops, that’s redundant) would blame it on Trump for not being tough enough on immigration. As it stands now, I am waiting for the idiot democrat senator from Minnesota to blame this outbreak on Trump by saying that the refugees were too scared to visit a doctor because they were afraid they would be deported.

          • Terry Butts

            I have no doubt they are already trying to figure some way to blame this on Trump anyway.

          • olddawg1

            They might say that Comey was investigating it, but since he was fired people will die from measles. Gotta love the 180 degree turn by Schumer, Pelosi, etc.: A couple of months ago, they were saying it was a travesty of justice that Trump didn’t fire Comey, but now it is suddenly a travesty of justice that he did fire him.

          • Terry Butts

            Basically it is their anti Trump stance if Trump supports it they are against it if Trump is against it they support it regardless of what it is even when they contradict themselves so long as it goes against what Trump is trying to do for this nation.

            So if Trump wanted him to stay they wanted him gone if Trump wants him gone they want him to stay.

          • olddawg1

            Yep, they have an army of people who spend every day formulating their official position and sending it to the “resisters” so that they will know what they are supposed to support and oppose. I think Trump should say that Hillary should not be prosecuted, so that the left will turn on her and demand that she is prosecuted because they think Trump is covering for her. Haha, yeah, that will happen…

          • Terry Butts

            The old reverse psychology ploy who knows it just might work if they just react without thinking to oppose it just because Trump said it.

          • olddawg1

            Might be worth a try–or if nothing else, it might just make their heads explode trying to figure out what to support.

    • 2 parrots and a dog

      It was the main reason. This will get worse. All of the parents who haven’t vaccinated their children may see them die or see them extremely ill.

      • Terry Butts

        They were not exposed to any “PROPAGANDA” (valid concerns in most cases) until LONG AFTER they were resettled.

        Had they been CHECKED in accordance with immigration laws passed in the 50s the infected would have been treated before entering the general population.

        While most vaccines are safe there are some that have caused side effects especially in people who THE MANUFACTURERS THEMSELVES warn not to take the vaccine.

        The PRO VACCINE people who are pushing for MANDATORY vaccination with NO RIGHT FOR PEOPLE TO CHOSE for themselves based on their own medical history ignore this fact.

        When an HONOR ROLL students gets one of the new vaccines just developed and leaves the DR Office unable to even tie their own shoe laces it is PURE IGNORANCE to claim they were BORN with the problem it was just a COINCIDENCE that symptoms only occurred a few minutes after a vaccine was administered.

        • 2 parrots and a dog

          Terry we are writing about two different things. I also believe that parents should have a choice of when to vaccinate or not except for polio, but that isn’t the point I was making. It wasn’t a huge problem when parents chose prior to the illegals because most illnesses there are vaccines for had all but vanished from our nation. My point is that now those parents who made that decision, for a valid reason or not, are going to see their children at risk of getting life threatening illnesses because of Obama allowing disease carrying illegals to cross our border freely. Many have lice too. We have immigration laws for many reasons and they should all be enforced. Most of the natural born Americans were born after there were vaccines and never experienced their children or siblings die from diseases like whooping cough and if they had, they would certainly want our immigration laws enforced so that any Americans’ children who haven’t been vaccinated would not find themselves in the position of becoming gravely ill. Hopefully that clears up my position for you.

          • Terry Butts


            Though on the polio vaccine I would say as long as it is not the live virus vaccine that is required as the only lawsuits I have seen over the polio vaccine was when the live virus version was used without proper instructions given to the parents of the children by medical personnel resulting in some parents actually catching polio from the child because of the vaccine during routine childcare. Not sure if that version is even used any more this was a long time ago.

        • 2 parrots and a dog

          I also think that the mix up in my reply to your comment is due to these websites not matching replies to the correct comment. I just checked that out as an afterthought and saw that the site placed my comment incorrectly. That happens quite often on these sites and that can be irritating at times.

          • Terry Butts

            Yes I have had that happen as well in the past I think sometimes if clicked at the wrong time (such as just as another reply is posted) it puts the reply to someone else who replied to the same think just as the reply option was clicked. Causing such mix ups.

            at least that is my educated guess as to how this seems to happen knowing how odd computers act sometimes.

          • 2 parrots and a dog

            Thanks for being so nice about it. I try to be more thourough ni the early part of the day, but when my eyes burn I tend to take short cuts which also puts some of the blame on me. Lately I haven’t been on as much because of the burning which is why I was rushing. I spent today unsubscribing newsletters and I’m still not done. I’m headed to bed soon. Nice meeting you. Sorry again that I jumped the gun on that last one. God bless you and your family.

        • 2 parrots and a dog

          WTF are you rambling about> There is no mention of propaganda in my comments. Get a grip on reality and please get yourself some reading comprehension skills.

          • Terry Butts


            The STORY stated they were blaming anti vaccine PROPAGANDA for the lack of vaccinations among the “refugees”. Besides I thought two hours ago you already replied to this or was this one on hold until 19 minutes ago.

          • 2 parrots and a dog

            The same thing happened to you happened to me, site screw up, and I didn’t realize it until after I had already replied. I zip through all my emails these days. I was sent your message twice and although it looked familiar, I had already deleted the one I had read so I had no way to verify it was the same without going back and looking. Didn’t occur to me until afterwards anyway. Sorry about that. I get bleary eyed this time of the day.

    Muslims, 1/4 of the world population. 800 million cannot read. Not ONE university in the top 300 worldwide. 80% are on welfare in Europe. Dead last in human’s rights, IQ per country and Women’s right studies. No intellect, No sports, No cinema, No books, except one about a bloody conquerer prophet who married a 9 years old child. 57 muslims countries combined produce less in GDP than Japan or Germany economy alone, less than 1/5 of usa. Absolute zero in Olympics. Most are runned by crazy dictators and monsters and if they are removed out, civil war follows between two goat f****** factions, all for centuries. Zero evolution. They reproduce like rats, yet they don’t work or want to work. Finally they want to go to countries they hate to turn them into the s******** they came from, Need more?

    Here is what I KNOW about Islam: they espouse to a god w/NO name (Allah=”the god”) they identify w/a “white”man (SEE Hadith/Bukhari vol.1 no#63 and vol.2 no’s 122 and 141 as well as vol.4 No.#744 who claimed he KNEW NOT the things of the unseen. Sura 6:50 and therefore is NOT a prophet! Muslims are Jesus Christ deniers,(1 John 5:12/2:22 KJV) and when that happens they, or anyone, cannot prosper and so they wind up in abject poverty and need to take what they want by Jihad and force, as in Sharia law #3 thru 6! Muslims are LIARS, as per their own admission and Killers as well, by that same admission and “OBLIGATION” to LIE and KILL, SLAY, and FIGHT Jews and Christians, as seen in Sura #1 and 2! After all, would YOU follow a man who claimed that the sun set in a puddle of Murky water? Sura 18:86 or that all NON-Muslims had 7/seven intestines as per Hadith/Muslim vol. #3 no’s 5113 ch. DCCCLXI and 5114-5120, I wouldn’t follow this man to the bank!
