Commercial airliners have turned into petri dishes of infectious disease thanks to the government's decision to allow illegal immigrants to jet around the country, famed private eye Bo Dietl told Newsmax TV.
The decorated former New York City detective said that as officials place children — illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border by the thousands — into foster homes, they are skirting usual safety precautions.

"I am so outraged. People are boarding planes, commercial airliners with a piece of paper that can be [made] on a copy machine — no photo ID — and are able to fly around the United States,'' Dietl said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show.''
"They're coming from Third World countries where you have diseases that are prevalent. God knows what they're bringing [in]. You're on a plane, somebody's coughing, you don't know what they're coughing up. They've got mosquitoes in their hair.''
On Monday, Dr. Elaina George, who specializes in ear, nose, and throat afflictions, told Newsmax TV that the United States is facing a major health threat due to the explosion of disease at detention centers holding thousands of illegal immigrant children on the southern border.
"It’s absolutely a health threat,'' said George, a board-certified otolaryngologist. "It's like a perfect pressure cooker … a culture medium if you really want to think about it in that manner.''
Those youngsters are now being flown to different cities around the nation.
Shockingly, Dietl says, as the young immigrants are allowed to travel with ease, law-abiding Americans are still subjected to rigorous security measures by the Transportation Security Administration.
"When we go on a plane, we got to take our shoes off, you can't bring a bottle of water, and we're American citizens. When is it going to stop?'' said Dietl, founder of Bo Dietl & Associates.
"You know how bad it is when you fly as it is. Anybody who has a cough or cold, you get off the plane, you're sick. Imagine now you've got some foreign disease.
In "Central American countries, there is a poverty level there where disease is very prevalent, and I don't mean to knock my Central American neighbors, it is what it is. They're not able to get the proper health facilities there, injections and all.''
He blamed the Obama administration for being too lax in the enforcement of the nation's immigration laws.
"This is an emperor with no clothes on because he's just nothing … He thinks he's a king. He doesn't want to abide by anything,'' Dietl complained.
His attitude is, "Let's feed everybody that's coming over, give them clothes, give them cards where they can go and get anything for free. [The] heck with our kids in Chicago, New York and Detroit ...
"We've got to draw the line and help ourselves. This is America.''
