More Americans are calling on the Obama administration to shut off travel to the U.S. from the three West African nations currently being ravaged by the Ebola virus, but a U.S. Border Patrol agent has essentially said that wouldn’t be enough.

A press release by the White House said government agencies are currently monitoring such travelers at five airports, but that won’t stop someone infected with the virus from simply walking across the country’s northern or southern borders or arriving at another airport.

The press release stated:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs & Border Protection (CBP) this week will begin new layers of entry screening at five U.S. airports that receive over 94 percent of travelers from the Ebola-affected nations of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.

That leaves about 6 percent of travelers from Ebola-afflicted nations free to bypass screening before entry into the U.S.
