Open Borders Aren't the Problem

Shooting down the argument that illegal immigration fuels the spread of disease, Amesh Adalja called a Walter Williams column “a very obviously veiled attempt to use the prestige of science and medicine coupled with the real issue of health security in order to bolster a political position.”
 
Adalja, a Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security scholar, explains why Williams’ claims are overblown—and how criminalization is counterproductive. “The solution is not to further demonize them as carriers of what are not-so-exotic infections, but instead enable them to seek health care if needed, free from the worry that they will be damned back to whatever place they fled because they just want to get a flu shot.”
