Foreign Ebola patients to be brought to US for treatment, warns congressman

(NaturalNews) The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has issued a new warning that the Obama regime is planning to import foreign Ebola patients into the U.S. for treatment. Representative Bob Goodlatte of Virginia recently told Fox News that he received "information from within the administration" that plans are in the works to bring non-U.S. citizens infected with Ebola to U.S. hospitals, further increasing the risk of a domestic outbreak.

Speaking to reporters, Rep. Goodlatte scorned the White House for even thinking that this might be a smart approach to handling the pandemic. Bringing in more Ebola patients, he suggested, will simply increase the risk to Americans while doing nothing to halt the spread of Ebola in West Africa, where some 15,000 people are estimated by the World Health Organization (WHO) to have died since last December.

"There's increasing evidence they are making those plans," stated Rep. Goodlatte.

"Members of the media, my office, have received confidential communications saying that those plans are being developed. ... This is simply a matter of common sense that if you are concerned about this problem spreading -- and this is a deadly disease that we're even concerned about the great healthcare workers when they come back not spreading it -- we certainly shouldn't be bringing in the patients."

Homeland Security refuses to confirm or deny that administration plans to bring in foreign Ebola patients

When asked to confirm or deny these allegations, both Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry were nowhere to be found. Fox News says neither party got back to the media agency with any sort of response, though Rep. Goodlatte is sure that the tip his office received is valid.

"Someone in one of the agencies," he said, contacted his office with the tip, which leads to the question: Who will be paying for the transport and treatment of all these foreign nationals who will be bombarding our healthcare infrastructure?

Rep. Goodlatte has been attempting to make contact with the White House to obtain details of the plan, but to no avail. However, his office's claims match those of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which also reported just days before the announcement that the White House was "actively formulating" a plan to bring foreign Ebola patients into the U.S.

The stated purpose is to treat patients early, "within the first days of diagnosis." But again, the effectiveness of this plan as it is officially stated is questionable at best, increasing the risk of Ebola transmission in the U.S. without mitigating the outbreak as a whole. A travel ban, on the other hand, which would bar anyone who might have Ebola from entering the country, makes a whole lot more sense.

"The risk... is that we still don't even know how exactly this disease is spread and you saw it today [with] the CDC changing their analysis in how that would occur," stated Rep. Goodlatte, referring to new CDC guidelines which admit that Ebola can be spread through expiratory bodily fluids at a distance of up to three feet.

"So why take the added risk of introducing people into the United States when we can take the resources there and treat them there? ... We think, again, that's just plain common sense, a practical way to stop this disease from spreading," he added.
