Bobby Jindal: Ban travel from Ebola nations

By JONATHAN TOPAZ | 10/3/14 1:50 PM EDT Updated: 10/3/14 4:04 PM EDT

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Friday called on the Obama administration to impose a travel ban on flights to the U.S. from countries with Ebola outbreaks.

“We should stop accepting flights from countries that are Ebola stricken,” the Republican governor said in a statement.

“President Obama said it was ‘unlikely’ that Ebola would reach the U.S. Well, it has, and we need to protect our people,” he said. “But the Obama administration keeps saying they won’t shut down flights. They instead say we should listen to ‘the experts.’ In fact, they said it would be counterproductive to stop these flights. That statement defies logic. How exactly would stopping the entry of people potentially carrying the Ebola virus be counterproductive? This seems to be an obvious step to protect public health in the United States.”

Jindal becomes one of the most prominent voices calling for a travel ban, which the Centers for Disease Control and some public health experts have said is misguided, impractical or both. Earlier Friday, CDC Director Tom Frieden appeared on the morning talk shows to argue that a travel ban likely would “backfire” and make it harder for health officials to fully root out the virus.

“Even if we tried to close the border, it wouldn’t work,” the director said on MSNBC. “People have a right to return. People transiting through could come in. And it would backfire, because by isolating these countries, it’ll make it harder to help them, it will spread more there and we’d be more likely to be exposed here.”

Frieden added that the only way to eliminate Americans’ risk to Ebola is to stop the virus “at the source” — meaning West Africa.

Health officials continue to screen up to 100 people in Texas in connection with Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan, who is in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Duncan flew to the U.S. on Sept. 19, but the CDC said he was screened in Monrovia before his flight and showed no symptoms of Ebola.

Individuals flying from West Africa are screened for symptoms of Ebola before flying, but Frieden conceded that these tests are not perfect. The top health official has said repeatedly that he is confident the CDC will successfully contain the virus in the U.S.

In Washington, D.C., Howard University Hospital on Friday also confirmed that it has isolated a patient who recently traveled to Nigeria for potential Ebola-like symptoms. Nigeria has not had a new Ebola case in nearly a month.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Friday afternoon that the White House is not currently considering a travel ban, according to a pool report. The spokesman praised the “sophisticated multi-layer screening system” at airports in West Africa and said that on-board personnel have also been trained to identify potential symptoms.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Listen to the experts? Yeah, that would be bad. Experts are elitists. They know and understand stuff and are thus so unlike "us". Well, at least we now know that Bobby has finally and officially given up on his initiative for Republicans to stop being the stupid party. Seems he's doing a Sarah on this one and doubling down on being stupid. Way to go!

This 'persons' Minister in Dallas has said in the papers that he came here on a tourist Visa to get married. Charming.


I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

I don't think one guy constitutes an outbreak. That being said, I like where you went with it.

Well, not really true. US has a person in its health care system who has Ebola, that doesn't count as an outbreak. Not saying it couldn't happen, but the situation is being monitored.

Oh, thought already posted. Oops!

What are you saying? It's contained, managed and under control? Despite there not being flight bans? Impossible!

Would this ban cover U.S. citizens returning from West Africa? I don't think there's a legal basis for that. Seems like any kind of ban would be ineffective if you couldn't apply it to everyone.

That's just one of the issues. The other is that people travel from and to third countries that wouldn't be on the banned list. This is like closing the window and leaving the door wide open. It's stupid.
