I wonder if this was an illegal?

/wild speculation If I was a terrorist organization with lots of money, who wanted to kick off some bio warfare with America, infecting people in Mexico then sending them across the border would be an efficient way to do things. /wild speculation

Last thing we need here, with ISIS terrorism concerns and shitty economy, is a fucking Ebola outbreak.

They just let everybody in except if your carrying over 3 oz of fluid in your luggage. If he flew in he's already contaminated all the passengers, all the people they have since come in contact with etc. Could be the start if he infected anyone else he came in contact with.

Wow!

Exactly how many people in Texas have the Ebola if you add up all of the threads?

Don't drink poop water, eat your dead, and practice basic hygiene. There, you will be Ebola free.
