Rep. Graves Statement On Ebola

 U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement on the spread of Ebola in the United States:

“My prayers today are with the two Dallas nurses who put themselves at risk in order to help a patient with Ebola. They represent the best of America’s dedicated health care professionals.

“Now, Americans are asking how Ebola could spread in our country, why a nurse with symptoms was given permission to board a commercial flight, and why the strictest, safest protocols were not followed. It is disturbing to consider that it only took one Liberian, without symptoms when he arrived in the United States, to start this dangerous chain of events. That fact raises questions about the effectiveness of entry screening and should cause the president to seriously consider banning travel to the United States by non-U.S. citizens from the affected Western African countries. I would support that action, in addition to other aggressive measures, if it means keeping Americans safe from Ebola.”
