The city of Chicago has become overrun with third-world diseases such as measles and tuberculosis due to the surge of illegal aliens flooding into the city, with the number of measles cases in the city rivaling nationwide totals.

As reported by Breitbart, health officials in Chicago report 57 “confirmed cases” of measles, with the vast majority being found in the shelters that have been set up for illegals. Of those cases, 33 are children under the age of 4, while 7 cases are children between the ages of 5 and 17, 16 cases are among those between the ages of 18 and 24, and a single case was found in an adult over the age of 50.

As a result of the rapid spread, city officials warned that actual American citizens in the city may have also been exposed due to sharing public transit with illegals, including trains and buses, in addition to other public spaces such as stores and schools.

The total number of measles cases confirmed thus far in Chicago is almost exactly on par with the overall number of cases in the entire country in the year 2023; Chicago’s current total of 57 is just one shy of the 58 cases of measles recorded in the entirety of the United States last year.

The rise in measles cases has led to a formal warning from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The alert, titled “Increase in Global and Domestic Measles Cases and Outbreaks,” warns of the disease’s “highly contagious” nature, and reports that there have been 58 confirmed cases in the country between January 1st and March 14th.

The CDC specifically pointed to “seven outbreaks in seven jurisdictions compared to 58 total cases and four outbreaks reported the entire year in 2023.” It also noted that 93 percent of all measles cases this year are directly tied to international travel, further confirming the widespread public health threat of mass migration.

In addition to measles, the city of Chicago has also suffered an outbreak of tuberculosis, similarly located mostly in illegal alien shelters.
