Ebola Virus

Dear Mr. Obama,
Why are people who've been in these infected countries being allowed into the US without being quarantined? They did a better job at Ellis Island back at the end of the 19th century keeping infectious diseases out of the US than we're doing today. Who knows how many people this man has infected or how many they will infect? Instead of sending 3000 of our troops into an ebola danger zone to help Africans, you should be more concerned about keeping ebola out of the US? US hospital staffs aren't trained to recognize ebola symptoms. This man went to the hospital and was released because it wasn't recognized he had the disease. This man will just be the tip of the iceberg and shows how ineffective this government is at keeping ebola out of the US.
