As the migrant caravan crisis grows, Fox News is peddling fear tactics to their viewers. On Monday, a former ICE agent David Ward told Fox News host Charles Payne that some of the migrants have leprosy.
“We have three tenants of problems, national security, public safety, and public health issues with these caravans coming to the United States,” Ward said.
“In the national security realm, we have all sorts of people, not only from Central America but they are coming in from Africa and the Middle East and other places in this caravan,” he said.
He added, “They are going to come between the ports of entry where we have the paths of least resistance. Then [we have] public health. Individuals [are] coming from all over the world that has the most extreme medical care in the world.”
“They are coming in with diseases such as smallpox and leprosy and T.B. [and this is] going to affect our people in the United States,” he said.

Later, Payne clarified that there was no evidence that the migrants had leprosy.
How Trump could save America
Donald Trump keeps claiming that his accomplishments exceed those of all previous American presidents.
Earlier this year, the White House published an amazing piece, titled “The Historic Results of Donald J. Trump’s First Two Years in Office.” Trump´s staff patted itself on the back so hard it must have hurt.
You don’t have to be a psychiatrist to realize the following: First, Trump has an obsessive desire to claim himself a success story. Second, despite his massive narcissism, he is painfully aware that he is an unmitigated failure. That is what explains his irrepressible desire to aggrandize himself.
South Korean fighter jets fire 400 warning shots at Russian military plane
South Korean fighter jets fired nearly 400 warning shots at a Russian military aircraft on Tuesday after it violated the country's airspace, with Seoul warning of a far stronger reaction if a breach reoccurs.
The Russian A-50 early warning and control aircraft breached South Korean airspace twice off its east coast, the defence ministry official said, forcing the air force to scramble fighters.
Moscow denied any of its military aircraft had violated South Korean airspace, saying its planes had carried out planned drills over international waters.
But Seoul said a warplane entered South Korean airspace near the disputed Dokdo islets -- which are also claimed by Japan -- the first such violation since Korean War hostilities ended in 1953.
Democrats are on the verge of setting a ‘time bomb’ for any candidate who can defeat Trump
If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.
That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.
