Now that we’ve seen this happen, we know now that we need to do more to make people feel prepared.”
She added, “We realized this week that this is a teachable moment, and despite the guidance we have sent out [to hospitals], people don’t necessarily understand how to implement it.”

“I don’t usually get into the political part of it,” explained Chris Cabrera, now a vice president in the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307, “but I find it odd that their whole thing is, ‘We are going to get amnesty when we get here.

That this is happening should surprise no one… That there is finally some pushback by journalists is what IS surprising…
This is just part and parcel of Obama’s socialist agenda. The old soviets had a saying about their newspaper called the “Truth.” They said there is no truth in the news, and no news in the Truth. We are very close to that today in America.

“They want to pick and choose which journalists are covered,” the Texan Republican told Breitbart News. “In other words, if you’re a blogger they might not cover you, but if you work for the New York Times they might.
