Local 2455 Members,
Border Patrol Agents in the Laredo Sector have come into contact and treated numerous members of the migrant caravan for serious illnesses, including SCABIES.
SCABIES is a parasitic skin infection that is highly contagious. Scabies is caused by a mite that burrows into skin and lays eggs, causing an intense itching and rash.
Border Patrol Agents are encouraged to use PERSONAL PROTECTIVE GEAR including Latex or Non-Latex Gloves, Long-Sleeve Shirts, and to take precautions, including Frequent Hand Washing, Decontaminating Processing Areas and Decontaminating their Uniforms.
