U.S. General: "Bar the door" if Ebola hits Central America

The Pentagon's top commander in South America is now warning America's borders may be the next Ebola entry point.

“If Ebola breaks out, in Haiti or in Central America. I think is literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ in terms of the mass migration of Central Americans into the United States,” Marine General John Kelly, chief of the U.S. Southern Command, said Tuesday.

Does his warning add up?
