White House Has No Interest In Travel Ban Despite Calls From Congress

Nearly 100 lawmakers favor placing travel restrictions on persons infected with Ebola in order to decrease the odds of entering the U.S.

At least 80 members of the House and 20 members of the Senate have said they favor banning flights that could carry passengers coming out of West Africa or temporarily rescind the visas of residents of Ebola stricken nations.

Nearly every African nation has instituted travel bans on West African countries with significant outbreaks but The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer won’t budge.

This past Friday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said new “Ebola Czar” Ron Klain will report to former UN ambassador and current National Security Advisor Susan Rice.

As a reminder, Susan Rice is the woman who went on five Sunday talk shows to lie about a YouTube™ video being responsible for the 9/11 attack in Benghazi. She is also the same person who said alleged Army deserter and Taliban sympathizer Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction.
