    Hi wolf,
    I understand the fear of those asking for travel ban of citizens from Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. Let not forget that there are health care professionals from those Countries who are Citizens of this great Nation and are risking their lives daily providing cares in Hospitals, Clinic etc... around the Country. Some of these family has filed for their loved ones and have waited for years for the process to fall in place. Some of their family was/has been scheduled for their Visa interview and now booom...Ebola. If the US stop or revoke Visas of those families who loved ones has waited all these years and they contract Ebola and die? How will their loved ones handle it here in the US? The people of West Africa did not ask for Ebola, maybe if western Leaders restrict African Leaders from saving millions in International Banks and force them to spent on Health Care/Educations.... for those congress men and Women who are referring to West Africans as "those people" Put yourself in the shoes of an west African parent(s) living in the US who has not slept well since this outbreak, because they don't know that the next phone call maybe the news about their loved ones. I know this is election year, but can you guys put politics aside and be more Human/Parents?
