CORNING, N.Y. - Today Member of the House Homeland Security Committee Congressman Eric Massa (D-NY) called for an immediate and complete closure of the Mexican border until the H1N1 Swine Virus is contained and controlled. Rep.
Massa also called for the public to pay attention to the medical professionals at the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the WHO (World Health Organization) and follow their instructions.
"The public needs to be aware of the serious threat of swine flu, and we need to close our borders to Mexico immediately and completely until this is resolved," said Congressman Eric Massa.
"The CDC and the WHO are monitoring this situation closely and I call on all Americans to pay attention and follow their instructions as this situation develops.
I have complete faith in our medical professionals and look forward to a swift conclusion to this problem.
I am making this announcement because I see this as a serious threat to the health of the American public and I do not believe this issue is receiving the attention it needs to have in the news.”
