Ben Carson Suggests Measles Outbreak Is Due to ‘Undocumented People’
TAPPER: "Isn’t exactly what we’re seeing in California right now, this measles outbreak, isn’t this because the people in California have been given the option of opting out and they have a whole bunch of misinformation and they’re not getting their kids immunized and now we have an infant who has the measles disease? Isn’t this a perfect example of what happens when you don’t mandate it?"
CARSON: "It is a good example of what happens. These are things that we had under control. We have to account for the fact that we now have people coming into the country, sometimes undocumented people, who perhaps have diseases that we had under control. So now we need to be doubly vigilant about making sure that we immunize our people to keep them from getting diseases that once were under control."
