Jessica Vaughan on the Center for Immigration Studies blog tries to make anti-immigration hay out of the nations's Ebola scare in a story entitled "Dallas Ebola Patient Was Another Visa Mistake." It begins "Look up `likely visa overstay' in the dictionary, and you should find a picture of Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who is the first Ebola case diagnosed within the United States, and who is now being treated in a Dallas hospital."
The post goes on to admit that "The federal government has yet to disclose the details of Duncan's immigration history . . . ." (emphasis added). Without knowing the facts, Vaughan goes on to suggest that the United States cut off all travel from the three nations in Western Africa experiencing Ebola outbreaks.
