REPORT: Immigrants From Ebola Countries Apprehended at Border

In 2013 the US Border Patrol apprehended:
** 112 immigrants from Guinea
** 231 immigrants from Liberia
** 145 immigrants from Sierra Leone

Chris Cabrera, vice president in the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307, told reporters immigrants from Ebola countries have entered the US illegally.
“Not too long ago we did catch some people, I believe, from Liberia.”

Valley Central reported:

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a level three warning for US citizens to avoid traveling to West African countries experiencing an outbreak of Ebola.

Immigrants from West African countries have entered the US illegally, according to Chris Cabrera with the National Border Patrol Council.

“Not too long ago we did catch some people, I believe, from Liberia,” he said.

During the 2013 fiscal year, statistics from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security website show Border Patrol agents apprehended 112 immigrants from Guinea, 231 from Liberia and 145 immigrants from Sierra Leone, which are the three countries currently experiencing the most cases of Ebola.

“Our main concern like it’s always been is the health and safety of our agents,” Cabrera said.

He worries agents are not properly protected in the event they come across an immigrant with the Ebola virus.

“Our agents are trained, however, they are not medical professionals,” he said.

In August Chris Cabrera said there is also more violence on the border than is being reported.
