Fisher: Open borders make Breck vulnerable to Ebola outbreak

I am very much concerned about Ebola reaching Breckenridge! Because we are an international resort, people fly here from everywhere — including Africa! Why, therefore, have our government leaders not stopped all flights from Africa? When our officials are asked to do this — to protect, we the American people — they respond with nonsensical reasons. To me this smells of a “stand down” operation to simply allow threats to enter our openly porous borders. Please contact our congresspeople and local politicians to apply pressure to please stop all airfare from Africa immediately. This is not racism, but common sense and our leaders’ duty to stop all threats, foreign and domestic.
