**Public Health Concerns Regarding Influx of Illegal Immigrants**On Monday, July 7th, 2014, I directed my staff to contact the County Health Department, Arizona State Department of Health and the CDC to gather information in regards to public health concerns of infectious disease outbreaks as a result of a large number of illegal immigrants being transported in and out of Southern Arizona. The County Health Department, as of July 10th, has not provided my office with a plan or guidance but we do know they are working on getting information out to the public. The CDC sent a response to my office and that can be found here ( link to CDC response). As I feel we should be doing everything possible to ensure we have accurate information and that the Federal, State and Local Government is prepared if such a health crisis should occur, I have sent a letter to Governor Jan Brewer (Click here to view letter) and will continue to update this site as more information becomes readily available. If you have questions or comments, please contact my office (520) 724-8097 or email email@example.com .
