OBAMA/SHAHEEN WRONG TO OPPOSE EBOLA TRAVEL BAN

Concord – Senator Jeanne Shaheen and President Obama continue to oppose an Ebola travel ban, but such a temporary measure is needed to keep Americans safe from unnecessary risk of exposure to the deadly virus.

Yesterday, Shaheen told New England Cable News in an interview: “I don’t think at this stage that a travel ban makes sense.” Yet, it is precisely at the early stage of an outbreak that a travel ban makes the most sense.

“Senator Shaheen and President Obama are wrong to oppose a travel ban from countries afflicted by the Ebola virus. Many African countries have successfully imposed a ban to stop the spread of Ebola, and we must do the same. What is happening in Texas started with one infected patient who came here from Liberia,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. “It’s time for Jeanne Shaheen and President Obama to impose Ebola travel restrictions to keep Americans safe from disease.”

    Thanks to Obama’s No Travel Ban policy America is now the country with the greatest number of Ebola cases outside West Africa! And, Obama continues to use his expert yes men to oppose and stop a travel ban!

    New York – A team of physicians with experience in epidemiology and health science research applying scientific methods and statistical analysis have concluded that as long as travel from West Africa remains open, there is no way to stop the international spread of Ebola.
