    Blatant fear mongering is all.

    The contemptuous word here is illegal. It's a poor way to introduce a country based on rule of law by implying that it's perfectly ok to break them first-hand upon entering.

    What's wrong with going through proper immigration channels for starters which does include checks for disease prevention as per your inquiry?

    You don't want any epidemic introduced that can potentially decimate a population. History proves that potential danger exists, and and with illegals , there's no way of knowing if something dangerous should happen to cross the border. That's why the screening and approval process is there.

    Ebola, SARS, bird flu, we are good at keeping the fear alive.

    I am so glad for being introduced to rose colored glasses...

    I couldn't imagine.

    Apparently you didn't study the history of the dangers disease pose.

    Look at how introduced European diseases decimated native populations in the past.

    The Ebola virus and West Nile virus as of somewhat recent events remain serious concerns and for good reason givin its potency.

    Can't say things are really rose colored in the vernacular of the term, givin this is something history has taught us and has clearly exemplified to be wary and cautious of things happening like this.

    Sometimes it's nessessary to undergo precaution rather than suffer "after the fact" in these instances.

    This travel ban is aimed to 'supposedly' prevent terrorists from coming to the US. It has nothing to do with preventing an outbreak of a disease.

    Oh I hope you weren't badly injured ... Look at the bright side, now your chances of getting hit by a car again is much lower than my chances of getting hit by a car for the first time, I think? :D

    It was a response to immigration and the subject concerning illegal entry for which disease control helps plays a role in defense of our borders as well as that of screening out potential risks for terrorism.

    It was a sidetracked issue. Probably best to return to main topic of op .

    A legal resident can bring a disease from overseas by traveling to an affected area.

    That's true. Dunno why someone would be willing to take personal risks like that. I would avoid areas where epidemics occur.

    The jist of the whole matter involves protecting oneself as well as others best as possible. It's a matter of personal responsibility imo. Not everyone follows that though or be willing to do so.

    But you can’t force others to do that.

    Guess that begs the question as to just who really is being forced, and or is doing the forcing?
