Immigration foes say study links illegals and disease, but study’s author denies it

Immigration foes have mistakenly claimed that a new study of tropical diseases found that a rare tapeworm infection is being spread in the United States by Hispanic illegal aliens, according to the study’s author.

The study, by Dr. Peter Hotez, was reported in December by the Reuters news service. Hotez wrote that the tapeworm infection was impacting Hispanics in this country.

“This is not an immigrant issue, per se,” said Hotez, who is the chair of microbiology, immunology and tropical diseases at George Washington University. “It is a health issue for any group living in poverty in the U.S.”
