296 Refugees Diagnosed with Active TB in Minnesota, Ten Times Any Other State; Majority Are Somalis

Two hundred and ninety-six refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) between 2010 and 2014 in Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

Seventy-one were diagnosed within one year of their arrival, while 225 were diagnosed after the first year.

The number of active TB cases reported among refugees arriving in Minnesota is ten times higher than reported in any of the fourteen other states that have released refugee TB data to the public, or made it available to Breitbart News.

The previous high among the other reporting states was Wisconsin, which reported 27 cases of active TB among refugees arriving in the state between 2014 and 2015.

Why were these immigrants not given a PPD (tuberculosis skin test that is read within 3 days of giving it) BEFORE being sent to the states? Why expose hundreds, if not thousands of U.S. citizens, including school-age children, to this potentially fatal and debilitating and mostly silent disease when screening can easily be accomplished before they're sent to their destinations?

This is a very serious shortcoming in the immigration process. The U.S. Public Health Service should be screening each and every one of these people before they're sent.
