GRIFF JENKINS (FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT): These health issues, a spokesman for Tijuana's health department, Raimundo Aguilera tells me that they have treated 2,267 migrants so far. Over 60 percent have respiratory infections, there have been three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS, 101 cases of lice, four cases of chickenpox, and they are very much concerned about hepatitis because of the unsanitary conditions here. There's only 35 bathrooms for 6,000 migrants in a space intended for 1,000.
