“This is insane letting them come here. Over 4000/month and do you think that that all those with Ebola will be found by using the methods of screening they are doing, not likely. It only takes a few infected individuals circulating in society to potentially unleash a catastrophe. As the situation in these countries continues to deteriorate most likely the number of people wanting to come here will increase.

If you are not right with God get right! The world is spiraling out of control and the only real security to be found comes from God.”  Admin

Both Homeland Security Secretary Secretary Jeh Johnson and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden said on Wednesday that 150 people a day arrive in the United States from Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea, the three West African countries that have been hit by the Ebola virus.

“When somebody travels from one of those three West African countries, even through a transit point (in Europe), we know where they’re coming from. So we’re able to track this. And we know that on average it’s about 150 passengers a day,” Johnson told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

“The number of travelers is relatively small. We’re talking about 150 per day,” Frieden told a news conference on Wednesday. He announced that questionnaires and temperature checks will begin at five major U.S. airports that handle “95 percent of all the 150 travelers per day who arrive from these three countries.”

One hundred-fifty passengers a day from West Africa works out to more than a thousand a week (1,050), 4,500 a month, and 54,750 a year.
