Should catching the measles, or mumps or chickenpox or tuberculosis, be part of a federal employee's job description? You know, take the TB the way the military at war with an enemy takes the bullet? Except, of course, that the military can defend itself. Border Patrol agents cannot.

It is now. InfoWars, via Drudge Report, has some news on just this appalling state of affairs:

agents than ever before are calling in sick to work or showing up sick, says a Border Patrol union representative who worries too many agents are succumbing to illnesses brought by illegal aliens.

Carlos Favela, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1929, says the number of agents affected by illnesses has reached alarming levels in recent years, with an estimated 20 to 25 agents from the El Paso sector calling in sick each day, while others come in to work sick because they've used up their sick days.

"I believe this is probably the record, you know, Border Patrol-wide, since ever, of agents calling in sick," Favela told ABC-7.
I'm surprised that either these Border Patrol members either have never been vaccinated, never had a booster (if needed) or the vaccinations didn't work.
