Enterovirus D68 has killed five U.S. children and infected hundreds more in the past month and a half, doctors confirm, and some believe there may be a connection between the sudden outbreak and the throngs of unaccompanied, illegal-alien children now being housed across the country.
A 2013 study published in Virology Journal found EV-D68 in a small proportion of young people with flu-like symptoms in eight Latin American countries.
According to investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, there are significant numbers of unaccompanied illegal minors in Kansas City and Chicago, the two cities where the current EV-D68 outbreak was first identified.
The outbreak happened in mid- to late August, right around the time when many children would have gone back to school and come into contact with their new illegal-alien classmates for the first time.
While not proving the Enterovirus outbreak originated with the Central American children, the CDC reports on its website confirmed EV-D68 cases in 44 states and the District of Columbia since mid-August. That includes states, such as Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming, which have very few illegal minors. Meanwhile, Arizona, a common crossing point and holding ground for illegal aliens, is one of the six states that have not had a confirmed case of EV-D68.
And Enteroviruses are not unheard of in the United States. They commonly circulate during summer and fall. The current strain, EV-D68, was first identified in California in 1962 and has rarely been reported in the U.S. since then. The CDC has not offered any theories to explain the current outbreak, which has led many to speculate.
TheConservativeTreehouse.com made the connection between the EV-D68 outbreak and the thousands of illegal immigrant children who have arrived in the U.S. this year in an article Sunday titled “Obama is Complicit in the Murder of Five Children – Illegal South American Immigrants Introduce Deadly Virus to U.S. Children.”
It showed points where illegal alien children are known to have been sent and the locations where virus cases have been reported.

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly – author of “Who Killed the American Family?” – said she agrees Obama is responsible for allowing diseases to enter the country.
“There are all kinds of diseases in the rest of the world, and we don’t want them in this country,” Schlafly said. “And it’s Obama’s job to keep them out.
“Out of all the things he’s done, I think this thing of letting these diseased people into this country to infect our own people is just the most outrageous of all.”
Schlafly said the government should screen immigrants for disease before they enter the country, as was done at Ellis Island a hundred years ago.
“That was the purpose of Ellis Island – to have a waiting place where it was decided whether people were healthy enough or responsible enough to come into our country,” she said. “The idea that anybody can just walk in and carry this disease with them is just an outrage, and it is Obama’s fault because he’s responsible for doing it.”
In her new book, Schlafly wrote about Antonio Gramsci, the Italian communist who developed a strategy in the early 1900s to overthrow Western society from within.
Gramsci’s idea was to attack the foundations of Western society, including patriotism, national unity, tradition, language and the rule of law. However, Schlafly does not believe the present illegal immigration crisis is something Gramsci would have foreseen or incorporated into his plan.
“Gramsci lived some time ago, and I don’t think he had any idea that we were going to be so stupid as to let anybody into our country who walks up to the border,” she said.
When asked why the current administration hasn’t done more to prevent diseased illegal aliens or Ebola carriers from Africa from entering the country, Schlafly said Obama wants to make the U.S. more like the rest of the world.
“Obama doesn’t want America to believe that we’re exceptional,” Schlafly said. “He wants us to be just like everybody else, and if Africa is suffering from Ebola, we ought to join the group and be suffering from it, too. That’s his attitude.”
