borderpatrol1-apLast week, Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council local chapter 3307, told news outlets he was worried for the safety of his fellow agents after immigrants from Liberia and other Ebola-stricken African nations were caught attempting to sneak into the U.S. “Not too long ago we did catch some people, I believe, from Liberia,” Cabrera admitted in an interview with CBS affiliate Valley Central News on Friday. Customs and Border Protection agents reportedly caught 112 people from Guinea, 231 people from Liberia and 145 from Sierra Leone during fiscal year 2013, according to Valley Central, but that figure does not take into account immigrants who evaded capture. Per the CDC’s own statistics, those same three West African nations are the hot spots from which most of the Ebola cases and Ebola-related deaths have been reported. “Our main concern like it’s always been is the health and safety of our agents,” Cabrera explained, adding that CBP agents “are trained, however, they are not medical professionals.” After witnessing first hand how CBP agents contracted various viral illnesses amid this past summer’s influx, Cabrera says he’s worried the same situation might play out but on a much larger, more catastrophic level.
