This was on Infowars. I generally don't try and post his stories. So this is from a local news source in San Antonio. The Infowars story was more agitated.

The reason San Antonio needs French speaking volunteers is that immigrants from the Congo are being dropped off in San Antonio. This article says 50 now 350 on the way.

Is this ICE dropping them off?

Info wars concern is this is where the Ebola outbreak is right now.

If you remember the last time, was it a Dallas hospital that the person came to and they were unprepared for a suspected Ebola case?

yes they were brought to dallas. I'm not sure if dallas is one of the hospitals with a bed capable of dealing with ebola.
Evidently there are only 13 or 14 hospital beds within the entire country capable of dealing with something on the scale of ebola.

Given the characteristics of ebola and it's mortality rate, if it gets loose in this country it will probably not be stopped and we might actually see something on the scale of the plague in the middle ages.

Deliberately letting these people in from a place like that is beyond words, the danger it places the public in.

It is the same danger with the mexican border. I don't know what, if any, real inspection or quarantine abilities mexico has.
My suspicion is damn little if any real quarantine, all it takes is one ebola case to make it into mexico and one or more infected illegals to bring it here undetected.

Dallas was totally unprepared to deal properly with Ebola. The hospital staff was pitifully under-trained in how to properly deal with the necessary biohazard isolation. These illegals immigrants should not be permitted into the US. Send the CDC to Mexico and quarantine them for 30 days.

I doubt the dialect of "French" they need translating is anything anyone around here is capable of.

Congolese French isn't that far-removed from normal French; a Congolese lady at work and I chat from time to time and I've yet to notice anything unusual, but my French is only at the level of a 10-yr old.

Should be plenty in the Abilene area. We have a significant population of Rwandan and Congolese, thanks in part to the IRC and a corporation called zoltek who helped many of them immigrate after facilities were destroyed overseas.
When I was doing property management and facilities maintenance, several of our apartment complexes had partener agreements with the IRC It was eye opening to say the least. We had Nepali and Congolese refugees along with a small assortment of others the difference was unbelievable.
The Congolese and Sierra Leone, by and large, took great pride in everything they did. Clean and tidy residences , very well mannered children, a big emphasis on English and becoming self reliant. Those virtue's were almost non existent in other groups. There were certainly instances of cultural conflict, most being resolved with a 'this is how we do it here'.

In Congo, the ebola epidemic is back. Axios has a disturbing chart showing a sharp arc upward based on Congolese government data. Total cases have gone to from virtually nothing last August to 2,031 now — and the data suggest that the trend has not peaked.

That's news, because right now, Congolese migrants have begun crossing our unguarded southern border in large numbers.

No Ebola in Texas - fake news.

Just unfounded rumors.

Move along nothing to see here.

Seems to be correct. I just called some up on YouTube. It is remarkably Parisian, but of course, those are people on Congolese TV - they would be very polished. Nevertheless, with that as a basis, I bet that the rest of it is not that far off international averages.

Some Congo refugees being resettled to West Coast.

Caution infowars, so has a conservative bias maybe.
