LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Members of Arkansas’ House delegation have sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging his administration to take more steps to protect Americans against the spread of the Ebola virus.

Republican congressmen Rick Crawford, Tim Griffin, Steve Womack and Tom Cotton want the administration to consider implementing travel restrictions on countries affected by the virus and enforce immigration policies.

Friday’s letter also expresses concern that people in affected countries could - possibly knowingly- be infected but not yet symptomatic and travel to the U.S.

Health officials in Texas confined four people to their home after they came in close contact with an Ebola patient hospitalized in Dallas this week.
