WATCH: Acting CBP Head Warns Infectious disease coming across the border is a real threat

Appearing on Fox News with Tucker Carlson, Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, warned that “borders matter” when there is a very real infectious disease threat.

Morgan also credited Trump admin restrictions from slowing illegal crossings.

Tucker Carlson asked Morgan if he was prepared for the scenario in which Mexico has “massive problems” with the outbreak.

Mark Morgan:

What I want your listeners to know is this isn’t the first infectious disease crisis.

SARS, H1N1, and what we do CBP as well as other governmental agencies, look we hope for the best, we plan for the worst and that’s exactly what we’re doing now. ..

We’re taking aggressive containment and mitigation strategies now to hope stem that, should that become a possibility.
