US Border Agent: We Are Not Ready For Ebola

US Border Agent: We Are Not Ready For Ebola

A U.S. Border Agent is saying that his department has no policy in place to watch the borders for illegals entering who might be infected with Ebola.

Fox 5 San Diego reports that the federal government has confirmed that six percent of people from Africa who enter the U.S. do so illegally through the southern border.

But apparently the U.S. government has no plan to monitor such people from Ebola countries who enter illegally and might be brining in the Ebola virus with them.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection claims that agents have received training for Ebola. But Fox 5 found one local official who disputes that claim.

National Border Patrol Council spokesman Gabe Pacheco told the station that agents are not up to the task of identifying symptoms of Ebola in immigrants.

"We have not been trained," Pacheco said. "There are no protocols in place and we haven't seen any protective equipment. We haven't had anyone tell us these are the protocols you’re going to be using."

"I know we are getting overflow from the San Ysidro Port of Entry," said Pacheco. "Could something slip through? Absolutely! We don't know what's coming across right now."

On October 7, SOUTHCOM commander, U.S. Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, echoed that concern, saying that our southern border represents a danger that the U.S. government is not taking seriously.

"If Ebola breaks out in Haiti or in Central America, I think it’s literally 'Katie bar the door' in terms of the mass migration of Central Americans into the United States," Kelly said, later adding, "So these populations will move to either run away from Ebola or in the fear of having been infected to get to the United States where they will be taken care of."

I feel so sorry for our birder agents that have had to put up with so many horrible things because of Obama.

Our southern border is our soft underbelly. I just wonder how many terrorists have crossed that border since 9-11 and are laying low waiting for the word from their damned imams.Canada has had several incidents in the last 48 hrs with terrorists assaulting Canadian soldiers. Dubya and obama together have violated their very first duty. Protecting our sovereignty. I really think armed American citizens will eventually have to remedy the problem.
