On Tuesday evening’s Fox Special Report, Mike Emanuel reported he’s obtained an internal State Department memo indicating that the Obama Administration is considering bringing non-Americans suffering from Ebola into the country for treatment. Based on the memo, it is clear the State Department is recommending the action.
Emanuel: Sources indicate it is an internal memo marked sensitive but unclassified written by a State Department official. Some key points are as follows:
Purpose: Come to an agreed State Department position on the extent to which non-U.S. citizens will be admitted to the United States for treatment of Ebola virus disease.
Recommendations: That State and DHS Homeland Security devise a system for expeditious parole of Ebola-infected non-citizens into the U.S. as long as they are otherwise eligible for evacuation from the Ebola-infected countries and for entry into the United States.
Issue: The United States needs to show leadership and act, as we are asking others to act by admitting certain non-citizens into the country for medical treatment for Ebola virus disease during the Ebola crisis.
This while they can barely manage ONE Ebola patient in New York.
