      Two more juvenile immigrants have been isolated after they had flu like symptoms at a Brownsville Border Patrol Station.

      Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council #3307 Chris Cabrera confirmed that two children in the Fort Brown Border Patrol Station in Brownsville have been quarantined since Saturday.

      Cabrera said it is not known if they have the H1N1 virus at this time, but medical personnel said they had flu symptoms.

      He told Action 4 News Saturday that two cases of H1N1 virus are at each the Fort Brown and Brownsville Border Patrol Station stations in Brownsville.

      Cabrera added that an estimated 120 people are being isolated at the Fort Brown and the Brownsville Border Patrol Station because they were exposed.

      Medical teams are stationed inside the detention centers to screen for lice, scabies and chicken pox but not everyone gets medical clearance.

      If someone is released and they are symptomatic, it could spread rapidly said Caberera.

      Further details on the minors are not available at this time.
