State Won’t Say How Many U.S. Ebola Victims Acceptable Price for No-Quarantine Travel Policy

State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki would not directly respond Thursday to a question from CNSNews.com asking her how many American Ebola victims would be an acceptable price for the American people to pay for the administration’s policy of allowing people to travel to the United States from three Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa—without even putting them through a quarantine period.

On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Homeland Security announced a new policy for dealing with travelers entering this country from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, which are currently experiencing an Ebola epidemic.

Under this policy, travelers from these countries will be checked on arrival at five U.S. international airports to see if they have a fever or are exhibiting symptoms of Ebola. They will also be questioned to see if they admit having had contact with an Ebola victim.
