U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown renewed his call to secure the border yesterday in order to stop Ebola from spreading into the country.

“This underscores the need to secure our borders. We have already seen people with Ebola arrive in the United States through normal channels and the type of havoc that can create,” Brown, a Republican, said in a statement yesterday. Brown has previously called for further border security as a way to protect against terrorism.

“My concern is with our unprotected border where people with Ebola and other infectious diseases can enter the country without being challenged,” he said.

The first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. died at a Texas hospital Wednesday morning. Federal officials announced the same day that they would begin screening passengers arriving to five American airports from Ebola-affected countries.



 
If Ebola gets to Central America, it could spread north from there, Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, told a crowd at the National Defense University this week, according to a press release.

“If it breaks out . . . there will be mass migration into the United States,” he said. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.”
