Blue City Los Angeles is Drowing in Trash Due to Homeless Population; Experts Fear Rising Rat Populations and Return of "Medieval" Diseases Spread by Rats' Fleas

They love the science.

But they're a little skeptical of the science of rat-control, garbage collection, and densely packed populations with little access to toilets or showers.

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year's record number of flea-borne typhus cases.

Even the city's most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA's busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

...

"I can't walk down the street without thinking that a flea could jump on me," said Estela Lopez, who represents business owners in the area.

...

An out-of-control rat population can even lead to the spread of dangerous strains of salmonella and bubonic plague, he noted.

Let's bring these Blue State Model ideas to the rest of the country so that we can all die of bubonic plague. That's fair and equal, right?

Meanwhile, although LA residents vote 90% in favor of open borders, they're not welcoming illegal immigrants dropped off in their city with the level of enthusiasm their virtue-signalling would suggest.

Due to overcrowding at the local south-of-LA migrant detention facility, about 100 migrants were released into the LA area.

Since this facility is located just south of Los Angeles and we're talking about a welcoming sanctuary state, they were greeted with open arms by caring locals.


Naw, I'm just kidding. People started showing up to protest or just "monitor" the situation to make sure they weren’t unleashed into the community.
...

One of the locals interviewed by CBS said he had heard from an unnamed law enforcement source that the migrants were going to be processed and released at nearby bus and train stations. That has them "concerned" and they will be watching to make sure it doesn't happen. The one quote from the guy is rather amusing. He's quick to point out that he's in favor of immigration and isn't a racist, but he just doesn’t want those people being set loose in his community.

Wait I don't understand -- doesn't LA want the dynamism and overflowing tax-coffers that hundreds of law-breaking, low-skilled immigrants will bring to their local economy?

What gives? I'm confuzamanated.
