TMA CALLS FOR MEDICAL ASSISTANCE FOR CENTRAL AMERICAN REFUGEES

The Central American women and children streaming into South Texas need medical assistance, and they need it now, says Dr. King, who travelled to McAllen to personally survey the growing refugee crisis. TMA is calling on President Obama and Gov. Rick Perry to provide medical aid to the thousands of women and children who have traveled from Central America to Texas. “Communicable diseases know no borders, and it’s critical we make certain no one is traveling with tuberculosis, pertussis, measles, or any other contagious disease,” Dr. King said. “Medical aid not only protects the Central American refugees. It also protects U.S. residents from potential serious and deadly diseases.”
