All Canadian provinces have found out that the only reason someone is getting the H1N1 flu is because they have received a H1N1 vaccine immunization. The H1N1 immunization shot is a direct killer. In the United states alone over 114 children have been killed by H1N1 since April. Hungary, Ukraine, Russia, China and Japan all are either not requiring or prohibiting the H1N1 vaccination shot from being given. This is a man made disease which originated from a vile and is directly construction from the 1918 influenza virus which killed over 30 Million U.S. citizens.
Evidently the H1N1 flu virus does discriminate. It discriminates only toward those who have taken the H1N1 flu vaccination shot. Since the Baxter lab like companies are not liable would this mean that King County would be liable for any complications or injuries which beset the client recipient. In the United states Constitution “Relief in Law” must be provided and would this mean that the Congress or King County would have to pay for any complications. Perhaps this is why the Congress is pressing for Health Insurance coverage so their mistake is actually paid by the citizenry.
Also, the ordinance is not in alignment with federal statutes and it is directly unconstitutional in its ordinance. Congress has the right to all Bills referring to Naturalization. Since illegal immigrants are a Naturalization situation then and only Congress can write bills protecting illegal immigration. King County needs to have direct permission from Congress in order to have this Ordinance enforceable. Working with Congressman McDermott and Congressman Reichert and Congressman Inslee and Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell for legislation needs to be done first before any type of legislation can be passed or considered.
Also, the ordinance was illegally passed because public testimony was not completed prior to its passage at the eleven o’clock hour. Public testimony continued after the one o’clock session which I testified in. The process needs to be where the ordinance needs to be voided and re-entered with full public testimony.
No provision was giving to attempt to have the clinic clients enter into a health insurance policy thus to mitigate or reduce future expenses to the King County Clinics.
Also, I am working on a project which may decrease our King County budget by somewhere from 5% to 10% for next year. This will be due to incorrect calculations from prior year data which I have observed. Am trying to assemble the information at the present time and will be making a presentation hopefully by the end of the month. So cost saving measures need to be put into ordinance format and perhaps encouragement of people making or getting medical insurance would be a great cost saving idea. Obviously the ball is in your court. **********************************************

Thank you for your email. Ordinance 2009-0393, relating to undocumented immigrants, was adopted by the Council this week. Fully consistent with federal law, the legislation adopts the current practices of King County departments, including the Sheriff’s Office, Public Health, Adult and Juvenile Detention, and the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
Under the legislation, all King County residents, regardless of immigration status, can now feel safe in coming forward to report crimes, assist in police investigations and seek preventive medical treatment, such as vaccinations, protecting the public at large and saving taxpayer dollars. King County is a local service provider and does not have the authority to enforce immigration laws or detain people – that is the federal government’s role.
The Sheriff’s office has stated that they could not do their job if people were afraid to come forward as witnesses or victims. That cooperation is essential to completing effective investigations and protecting the public. With regard to public health, if an epidemic starts in a population that doesn’t have access to care, it’s only a matter of time before it spreads to everyone. Diseases like H1N1 flu don’t discriminate based on whether or not you’re a legal citizen, and therefore, restricting access to care for some hurts us all.
Therefore, providing this protection makes sense from a moral perspective, as well as an economic one. Again, thank you for your email. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions regarding this issue or any other issue in King County.
Sincerely, Julia Patterson, District 5
