The deadly Ebola virus has now claimed 670 lives in West Africa. The World Health Organization has called the outbreak the worst on record, while Doctors Without Borders says the situation is “out of control.” Concerns are growing that the Ebola virus could reach the U.S., in which case, the government is planning to implement a nationwide forcible quarantine of anyone they see fit – even healthy Americans.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states on it’s website:
“Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms.”
This knowledge becomes exponentially more disturbing, when you pair it with the fact that the Obama Administration has been heavily arming government agencies with military grade weaponry for some time now. Compound that with strict gun control laws throughout the United States and you get a nasty recipe for disaster. Obama may decide to start quarantining American citizens at the drop of a hat and many would have no means of fighting back.
The Common Sense Show’s Dave Hodges points out:
“Even if there was not a present immigration crisis at the border, there is a significant outbreak of Ebola in a seven country region of West Africa. With modern air travel, this government should be enacting protocols to limit the chances for Ebola from coming into the United States. Instead, President Obama is having ICE and DHS load up the busses and planes, at taxpayers expense to ship them throughout the United States without going through a minimum of a three week health screening period (i.e. Ebola’s incubation period).”
There is a possibility that the Ebola virus might already be present in the U.S., as some of those illegals crossing the border have been reported to be Africans.
