Legionnaires' disease outbreak at border base in NM. Deliberately covered up during a visit by members of Congress
ANIMAS, N.M. — There is a health crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border that was deliberately covered up during a visit by members of Congress, according to the head of a sanitation company supplying outposts there.

Tricia Elbrock, the owner of Elbrock Water Systems in Animas, N.M., supplies portable bathrooms at facilities near the border. She told the Washington Examiner that after she dropped off two portable toilets near the border at the request of the Border Patrol, her cleaning staff was "overwhelmed" after hundreds of migrants used them.

“There’s a crisis here — the influx of people. These little counties and towns cannot handle that mass,” Elbrock said during a recent meeting at her business in Animas. She also fears the number of migrants using the bathrooms is a hazard. “There’s a health issue with the porta-potties."

Last month, an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's base in Antelope Wells, N.M., forced officials to close an indoor bathroom that migrants had been using. Officials allowed migrants access to that bathroom in the hopes of avoiding a bigger mess around their headquarters that would have been unavoidable had no bathroom been available.

Elbrock dropped off two portable toilets, but said two wasn't nearly enough. She said one is appropriate for 10 to 15 people and that the Border Patrol should have asked for 15 based on how they were used. "That facility can’t handle that many people. They’re gonna be overwhelmed," Elbrock said.
