There were in fact NO ISIS at the Border today... or any other day

Pants on Fire: Duncan Hunter makes unconfirmed claim Border Patrol caught at least 10 ISIS fighters | PolitiFact Texas
The California Republican, speaking to Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Oct. 7, 2014, said he’d learned from the U.S. Border Patrol that Islamic State fighters had been nabbed trying to enter the country from Mexico. "ISIS is coming across the southern border," Hunter said, adding a moment later: "I know that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas."
-- PolitiFact Texas
No state or federal law enforcement agency confirmed Hunter’s account when PolitiFact Texas inquired, and Hunter spokesman Joe Kasper declined to reveal the congressman’s sources.  Of course it is very difficult to reveal the non-existent.

Fox News, in its original Oct. 8, 2014, online news report on Hunter’s declaration, quoted the Department of Homeland Security disputing his account.
Homeland Security told PolitiFact Texas that no such apprehensions have occurred. An agency spokeswoman, Marsha Catron, emailed: 
"The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground. DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border."

Dr. Anthony Fauci Tells us to Hype Down on Ebola

NIH Doctor Takes Fox’s Chris Wallace to Science School over Ebola Panic | Mediaite
Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases explained the Sciences to Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, who quizzed him on a variety of ebola-related issues, some of which veered toward the wildly hypothetical. Wallace especially wanted to know why flights out of affected countries like Liberia had not been banned. Fauci explained that isolating a country in the midst of a crisis created an unbearable strain on an already vulnerable infrastructure and prevented supplies from making it to affected regions. 
“Experience is that when you close off a country, you create such stress and fear, you amplify the problem,” Fauci said. Wallace added that only two people out of 10,000 receiving additional screening when they landed. Fauci explained that this was because nobody symptomatic would have been allowed to fly in the first place. “If you have symptoms or a fever,” he said, “you will not be allowed on the plane.” 
Fauci also all but rolled his eyes at Wallace’s suggestion that ebola could sneak across the border, either through undocumented immigrants or as part of a bioterrorist plot. “I wouldn’t be worried about ebola coming across our southern borders when we have an ebola issue right now in South Africa,” Fauci said. “That’s a hypothetical that’s very far-fetched. As far as terrorism — nature right now is the worth bioterrorist. I’m worried more about natural evolution in west Africa than I am about a terrorist.” 
“If I were a bioterrorist, [ebola] would not be my choice,” Fauci added, given that it required contact to spread. “It would be inefficient.” Fauci concluded that he understood the fears over the virus, but that the strength of the U.S.’s health infrastructure made it close to impossible to replicate what’s happening in west African in the U.S. “We have to get our actions and our policies based on scientific testing,” Fauci said. “It could be will see another case, but we won’t have an outbreak.”
Remember FACTS not FOX kids. Always check the source.
