Thanks, Mr. President!

A young illegal immigrant child from Central America was diagnosed with swine flu Friday after crossing the Texas-Mexico border, necessitating 2,000 vaccines be shipped to Lackland Air Force Base to treat people who may have been exposed, U.S. authorities confirmed to TheBlaze.

The child was diagnosed after being transported from a border holding facility to the base, where he showed signs of illness and had to be hospitalized. It’s the first known case of the H1N1 virus to be diagnosed among the recent surge of unaccompanied immigrant children to arrive at the base, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said.

“We are told the sick child was feverish for several days before being sent for medical treatment,” Gohmert said.  “Having spent the weekend on our border, I can tell you that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is not taking charge of the undocumented children in any kind of reasonable time frame as they are absolutely required to do.”

The federal government is reportedly now shipping 2,000 H1N1 vaccines to Lackland AFB to prevent an outbreak.

By the way, Lackland AFB would be a terrible place for an outbreak to occur. It’s only where every single new Air Force recruit undergoes basic training. It’s also where Air Force officer candidates get trained. It’s in San Antonio, Texas’ second largest city, and a trade hub between Texas, Mexico and the rest of the country.

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that H1N1 killed between 151,700 and 575,400 people worldwide during the 2009 pandemic.

But all those poor dears are fleeing the terrible conditions of their home countries!

Yeah, let's let them come here and bring their terrible conditions with them. Geez.

So Dear Leader's now using biological weaponry directly against an Air Force base?

Red Lines anyone?

And they just tried to dump a bunch in Escondido, CA, where I live. Believe me, the citizens were up in arms.

Ropes, lampposts and anything else anyone can think of is fine by me.

It should be understood that when people have a real problem that it is the responsibility of their government to fix, and their government does nothing but allow it to grow and fester, then the radical fringe of activists becomes empowered by those people who cannot get relief from their government. Government , in other words, has left a vacuum into which more activist elements move. This is not what I wish for. It is what will happen anyway. I do not doubt for a moment that various "militias" and other underground elements are feeling more and more that their time to act is here. Obama is playing with fire. It would be so much better if the duly constituted authorities, whose chain of command ends with Obama, would simply do what it is their responsibility to do. But it ain't happening.

Move these kids to Washington D.C. as obama seems to have no plans to stem the tide. Let he and congress deal with it, they have unlimited sources of money (fire up the printing presses.)
