    How could flight screenings have detected Duncan if he was not showing symptoms?

    No no... you didn't read my post. I don't support screenings. I support banning people from these hots spots from flying to the US period. Not screening them.
    ďI think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whatís being proposed here, heíd agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.Ē - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It would only show we don't have any safe guards in place to stem an outbreak here.
    Does the modern health care system of this country not count as a safe gaurd?

    But that wont do us any good with those here that get infected..... then jumping on planes to go wherever in the US.
    If we had the actual safeguards in place prior to the liar who came over here, we wouldn't have to be having this conversation.

    Had him do a 21 day quarantine before he got on a flight.

    That decision would have to be made by the health officials of the country that allowed him to board the plane.

    You cut the outbound flights. The inbound don't have to land to drop supplies.

    No it didn't, it could have been in place by the US who allowed his passport to board that plane.
