Pandora’s box…..Redux 1.0

October 15, 2014

This morning, as the coffee worked its magic clearing the fog of sleep, I heard something on the radio that would normally seem so obvious yet no one until now was talking about it. The reason we are not restricting travelers from Africa is because then we would actually have to also ensure our borders are also secure. Common sense says that if we restrict flights from ebola ravaged countries these people would just fly into Mexico and walk across the border.

For years now both political parties have been fighting each other about tightening border security with nothing accomplished. I think this is partially because they would be seen as racist for closing the border, but also because they see these criminals as potential voters. So now, because of their inaction, they have a major problem in that they could not restrict anyone entering the United States from African nations without making sure that anyone crossing the border is also not carrying the ebola virus. Of course the only way to do that is close the border’s down and inspect every person entering the United States.

Now I have always viewed our government representatives
as suspect in anything they say or do
but would they really put our nation in danger
because of a political agenda?

    To answer your question Pete, I think some of them already are. (see your second paragraph).
