GOP Lawmaker Says Migrant Children May Carry Ebola

Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN) suggested "that immigrant children from Central America could be carrying the ebola virus that has killed some 800 people this year in West Africa," the Northwest Indiana Times reports.

Referencing a conversation he had with Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-IN), a heart surgeon, Rokita said: "He said, look, we need to know just from a public-health standpoint, with ebola circulating and everything else -- no, that's my addition to it, not necessarily his -- but he said we need to know the condition of these kids."
