Conservative radio hosts - Michael Savage, Neal Boortz, Glenn Beck - have blamed Mexican immigrants for spreading swine flu across the border.
However, Rear Adm. Anne Schuchat, M.D., the interim deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's science and public health program, confirmed that the disease was found in U.S. travelers to Mexico who then returned to the United States: "I know that we have confirmation of disease in people who have traveled to Mexico, and I don't know the numbers, but I know that that is definitely the case in some of our cases, and that's an important factor to consider."
