Cruz: Neither Obama Argument Against Flight Ban Makes Sense

‘Screenings only work if the passenger is showing symptoms’

Cruz: Neither Obama Argument Against Flight Ban Makes Sense (National Review Online)

Senator Ted Cruz Sunday said neither of the Obama administration’s explanations for not banning incoming flights from countries with active and uncontrolled Ebola outbreaks makes sense.

Speaking with Candy Crowley on CNN’s State of the Union, the Texas Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate pointed out that federal public health authorities’ boast of having set up screening at five airports is meaningless because those five airports do not include Dulles International Airport, the point of entry of the late Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of Ebola in a Dallas hospital after transmitting the deadly hemorrhagic fever virus to at least two other people — the first known domestic human-to-human transmissions of Ebola in U.S. history.
