Wondering how Thomas Eric Duncan was able to enter the U.S. while suffering from Ebola? He asked for a visa and received one in August.
In fact, the Department of Homeland Security is proudly advertising its "Ebola Outbreak-related Immigration Relief Measures to Nationals of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone Currently in the United States."
You read that right. Not only are the Obama Democrats leaving our doors wide open to those seeking entry from Ebola-infected countries, they're actually expediting visa requests!
Here's a more legible version:
With a 70 percent mortality rate and an incubation period in excess of three weeks, what possible reason could the Obama Democrats have for banning travel from West Africa?
Oh, that's right. Sorry, I forgot. They hate America.
Update: The inimitable Thomas Lifson notes that the notice "ONLY applies to nationals currently in the USA. IOW, no new arrivals. Mainly, I think to avoid kicking out people and forcing them to return to the hot zone."
Thanking him for his note, I responded that: "...the problem with this notice is that there is no cutoff date. In other words, if I make it into the U.S. today, then I presumably still qualify."
Consider the notice: it doesn't say "...in the United States as of 16 August 2014..."; no, if you make it into the U.S., you can apply for an extended stay and see your request expedited. Perfect, just perfect.
