Illegal Immigrants Better Vaccinated Than Americans

To any neocons out there trying to blame the measles outbreak on illegal immigration, well, you’re wrong. As The Guardian reports, most South and Central American countries such as “Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador have higher rates of measles coverage than the US, according to estimates by the World Health Organization (WHO).”

Rather sad that poor people from more uneducated and illiterate countries are smarter than affluent white people here in the States when it comes to vaccinating their children. How the hell did the country that sent men to the moon become less informed about vaccination than dirt poor vagabonds from the slums of Mexico? Again, that’s just sad.
