... they are from China, right?
And there are diseases in China, right?
Some Chinese immigrate illegally from China, right?
And diseases pass on from parents to children, right?
Which means all Chinese children of immigrants from China are riddled with diseases, right?
(Possibly Ebola.)
(Possibly while taking away our jobs.)

I'm just asking questions here.

No, it is claimed that diseases are all an American plot to kill undesirables. So is this true, are Americans just trying to infect immigrant children with diseases and sending them home in order to wipe out whole populations that are not "American" enough?

By asking these questions, you assert the validity of the unspoken underlying premise and I will therefore take them super-duper-serious. Thank you for bringing this to my attention and helping enlighten me.

There are some who actually believe that there is some truth to these kind of intentions. Especially when the neocons spout the following drivel:

Quote:
"Information systems will become an important focus of attack, particularly for U.S. enemies seeking to short-circuit sophisticated American forces. And advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool."

--Project for a New American Century, page 60 of "Rebuilding America's Defenses" (Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, etc.)

I thought they were all just cheap knock-off's of popular Western diseases that were developed in some kind of sweat-shop biological weapons plant.

It's why I never get my vaccinations at WalMart.

I guess, depending on your point of view, some Chinese come from Taiwan. I guess that would be China then, too, then wouldn't it.

Mexicans definitely come from Mexico.
