Ebola outbreak in Central America + open borders = disaster

In an interview yesterday with CNN's Candy Crowley, Senator Ted Cruz made numerous points about Ebola, speaking like a true leader, brushing off her snark.

He advocated for common sense measures including a temporary freeze on visas from West African nations where Ebola is raging and for stopping all commercial air travel from those countries until the disease is under control.

Cruz also shined a light on an issue less often discussed, which is the disaster that would unfold here in America if Ebola were to take hold in Central and South America. If such a scenario were to develop, people would be fleeing these regions in droves, crossing our border.  

Everyone in the GOP needs to be hammering away on this point. (Would that they hammered away on anything.)

If you can stomach Crowley, the entire 18-minute interview is worth a listen.
