Federal Govt Seeks To Lift Ban On HIV Infected Immigrants
Federal Govt Seeks To Lift Ban On HIV Infected Immigrants
Most people in the freedom movement know about the dangers of the HPV vaccine. Gardasil, which is known to cause spontaneous abortions, massive wart outbreaks, seizures, paralysis and death, faced great opposition when Texas governor Rick Perry tried to require girls to get the shot.
Inadequate attention, though, has been given to the
government’s recent mandate that immigrants recieve the controversial vaccine.
U.S. Customs Immigration Service, (formerly known as “INS”) which operates as part of “Homeland Security”, enacted new requirements starting in July 2008 for those wishing to immigrate to the U.S. See their official statement here:
USCIS Changes Vaccination Requirements To Adjust Status To Legal Permanent Resident .
This is nothing more than another eugenics program just like occulitist George H.W. Bush put into place, when he called for global population control as a Congressman in the 1960’s. The government targets people who are in a vulnerable position, who want to become residents, thus very unlikely to ’cause a stir’ by objecting to or refusing the shot.
American citizens have the liberty of telling their servant government no to these dangerous and poison vaccines.
Soldiers have been refusing vaccines for various reasons including the case of a Catholic soldier who refused the Hepatitis-A vaccine because it is made using aborted fetal cell lines.
In 2004 single mother Jessica Horjus got a dishonorable discharge from the air force after refusing the anthrax vaccine.

With all the available documented information on Gardasil, it’s a wonder no one has sued the government for this barbaric and unconscionable USCIS dictate.
Here are just a few of the excerpts regarding Gardasil, from HealthFreedomUSA:
Science For Sale: HPV Vaccines Safe (For Vaccine Makers, Anyway) Once Liability Has Been Removed
JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, not an anti vaccine venue, put it this way Results from our community-based study [of the benefits of Gardasil vaccination] provide strong evidence that there is little, if any, therapeutic benefit from the vaccine
Gardasil Adverse Events Include Deaths, Seizures, Judicial Watch Says
There have been 3,461 reports of adverse events, including a maximum of 11 deaths, in patients receiving Merck’s cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil, public interest group Judicial Watch said.
Since May, the group has found documents detailing 1,824 reports of adverse reactions to Gardasil, including eight deaths. Before May, Judicial Watch had obtained 1,637 adverse event reports. The group received the data from the FDA through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Of the 1,824 adverse events reported between May 10 and Sept. 7, 347 were serious reactions including paralysis, Bell’s palsy, Guillain-Barre syndrome and seizures, according to the group.
Thirty-three out of 77 pregnant women who received the vaccine experienced side effects, including spontaneous abortion and fetal abnormalities, Judicial Watch added.
[Entire report here.]
…In its report to the FDA, Merck noted that “it is not known whether Gardasil can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman.” It reported that 27% of pregnant women experienced an adverse reaction upon receiving the vaccine, and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) contains 45 cases of spontaneous abortion following Gardasil.”

Linked from the USCIS site are a number of pages with additional details regarding the purported Gardasil ‘mandate’ for all female immigrants aged 11-26. Meanwhile, fedgov Inc. is planning on allowing people with HIV to immigrate to the U.S. Note that they justify this change in policy by arguing that HIV is not spread through casual contact, but rather through sexual contact. With that line of logic, they should not require the HPV vaccine, since it does not prevent a communicable disease. The government has not issued a final decision on the HIV rule for potential immigrants. The public may weigh in on this matter by emailing the Centers for Disease Control at Part34HIVcomments@cdc.gov. Or,
you can submit comments by visiting This page. You can also read the public comments here.
The CDC lists three “Proposed key revisions” to the long-standing HIV rule:
HIV infection would no longer be included on the list of “communicable disease of public health significance”.
2. Testing for HIV infection would no longer be required as part of the U.S. Immigration medical screening process.
HIV infection would no longer require a waiver for entry into the United States.

2008 Technical Instructions for Vaccination for Civil Surgeons
- Memorandum: Vaccination Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons
Date: May 8, 2008
To: Civil Surgeons
From: Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ)
Subject: Revised Vaccination Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons
This memorandum announces the release of the revised Vaccination Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons. These instructions supersede all previous vaccination-related “Technical Instructions,” “Updates to the Technical Instructions,” memoranda and letters to civil surgeons.
The revised Vaccination Technical Instructions are effective beginning July 1, 2008.
Any person who seeks admission to the United States as an immigrant or who seeks adjustment of visa status to that of permanent resident is required to show documentation of having received vaccinations against vaccine-preventable diseases, as recommended by the U.S. Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP). Because of new ACIP vaccine recommendations, significant changes in the Vaccination Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons have been made, as follows:
Rotavirus vaccine should be given orally to children 6 through 32 weeks of age.
Hepatitis A vaccine should be given to children 12 through 23 months of age.
Tetravalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine should be given to persons 11 through 18 years of age. Tetravalent meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine is an acceptable alternative.
Human papillomavirus vaccine should be given to girls and women 11 through 26 years of age.
Zoster vaccine should be given to persons 60 years of age or older.
Hepatitis B vaccine should be given to all applicants from birth through 18 years of age.
Influenza vaccine should be given annually to children 6 through 59 months of age; it continues to be required for adults 50 years of age or older.
Acellular pertussis-containing vaccines are available for use in persons at least 10 years of age.
The revised Vaccination Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons are available at CDC/DGMQ’s website at

- Adjustment Of Status For U.S. Permanent Residence Requirements: Technical Instructions for Vaccination 2008
On September 30, 1996, the U.S. Congress amended the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) by adding to the health-related grounds of inadmissibility a new subsection, “Proof of Vaccination Requirements for Immigrants.” This new subsection requires any person who seeks an immigrant visa or adjustment of status for permanent residence to show proof of having received vaccination against vaccine-preventable diseases, as recommended by the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The ACIP is an advisory committee to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that makes general recommendations on immunizations, including safe and effective vaccination schedules. Updated ACIP recommendations are available at CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) website: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines
The instructions in this document supersede all previous vaccination-related “Technical Instructions,” “Updates to the Technical Instructions” and memoranda and letters to civil surgeons. These instructions are to be followed for vaccination requirements for all persons applying for adjustment of status for permanent U.S. residence. If in the future, there are changes or updates in ACIP recommendations, those recommendations available in the CDC/NCIRD website should be followed.
CDC’s Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) staff is available for consultation on issues related to vaccination requirements for immigration and can be reached at 404-498-1600.
Significant Changes in the Vaccination Requirements
Rotavirus vaccine, hepatitis A vaccine, meningococcal vaccine, human papillomavirus vaccine, and zoster vaccine have been added as age-appropriate to the vaccination requirements.
HIV No Longer A Barrier
Federal Register Notices
Revision of 42 CFR Part 34 (Medical Examination of Aliens) Removal of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) from Definition of Communicable Disease of Public Health Significance – Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM)
Public comment open until August 17, 2009
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are proposing the removal of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) from the list of diseases that keep people who are not U.S. citizens from entering the United States.
Proposed Removal of HIV Entry Ban
Revision of 42 CFR Part 34 (Medical Examination of Aliens) Removal of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) from Definition of “Communicable Disease of Public Health Significance” – Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM)
Why does CDC want to remove HIV from the list and screening process now?
When the regulation was created in 1987, far less was known about how HIV is spread and what put people at risk for HIV. Health experts now know that HIV is not spread through casual contact like hugging or shaking hands, through the air, food or water. In the United States, HIV infection is passed between adults almost exclusively by unprotected sex with someone who has HIV or by sharing needles or syringes contaminated with HIV. CDC’s proposal to remove HIV infection from the list of illnesses that prevent entry to the United States is based on this improved understanding of the risks.
Will the proposed rule change increase the risk that average Americans will contract HIV?
Allowing non U.S. citizens with HIV infection into the United States will not pose a risk to the public’s health because HIV infection is preventable and is not spread through casual contact or day-to-day activities. It is mainly spread through behaviors which involve exchange of bodily fluids during sex or through sharing HIV-contaminated needles.
It’s important to remember that any risk posed by people with HIV is not a result of their nationality but is based on whether the person engages in specific behaviors that increase the risk of getting HIV, such as unprotected sex or sharing HIV-contaminated needles. HIV is not a new virus in the United States. Currently, it’s estimated that more than 1 million Americans are living with HIV.
Why are HHS and CDC removing only HIV infection when other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are still on the list of diseases that prevent entry?
Legislation passed in July 2008 removed language from the Immigration and Nationality Act which had previously mandated that HIV be on the list of diseases that can keep people from coming to the United States. This legislative change allowed HHS and CDC to reassess whether HIV infection should be removed from our regulations. CDC constantly reviews the list of diseases in the regulations. If CDC seeks to remove additional STDs in the future, it will do so through changes in these regulations.
What is the process for removing HIV from the list and when would the change take effect?
HHS published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on July 2, 2009, explaining the proposed changes in the Federal Register and seeking public comment on those changes. HHS and CDC will carefully review all public comments it receives and decide whether to make any changes based upon those comments. HHS and CDC will then publish a final rule in the Federal Register containing the final changes. Any change would become effective at the time described in the final rule.
