Pete Sessions: Stop Giving Travel Visas to Thousands of People from Ebola Countries

‘The United States should make sure that what we’re doing is isolating the people who can come, why they’re coming and who they are’

"The United States should make sure that what we’re doing is isolating the people who can come, why they are coming, and who they are. And we need to know about whether they live in the city, whether they live in places where this Ebola is taking place.

But we can certainly protect the United States, and that’s what this effort is about. It’s about isolating there where it is, exactly what the African nations have said they have done to create a circumstance where it is not passed on. It has nothing to do other than with common sense.

What we should do is restrict the amount of travel visas that we have to American citizens travel back and forth, and the visas only to essential personnel that need to be back and forth. That’s what we should do.”
