U.S. failing to protect against Ebola [Letter]

The current Ebola outbreak is one the most severe health emergencies of our times ("Ebola crazy talk spreads faster than the virus," Oct. 15).

This epidemic has now proved the United States is ill-prepared to respond to any severe or sustained epidemic threatening our public health system. Ebola originated in West Africa and it is rising in the countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. It should be contained over there and any infected people should not be permitted to travel to this country under any circumstances.

Meanwhile, the White House's misguided policies are permitting infected patients to fly here from Africa. On top of this, our misguided border control policy will permit now ISIS terrorists to sneak across the southern border with biological agents such as Ebola.

This is a very dangerous policy that the White House is currently carrying out and should be questioned by Congress now before it is too late.
