Henry Waxman turns Ebola travel ban question into immigration issue


Rep. Henry Waxman continues to amaze at a House subcommittee hearing on the Ebola response. Waxman’s already lied by connecting Ebola in the U.S. to budget cuts, and when the question of potential travel bans arose, Waxman implied such a move would be anti-immigration:

So Henry Waxman just compared a travel ban to immigration restrictionism. You go right ahead and make the restrictionists' case for them

Yes, Henry Waxman just said that "public health is tangential to the immigration issue." #whyamericaisscrewed #EbolaHearing

There is nothing that can’t be shamelessly politicized!

@michellemalkin I already thought his "Duh factor" was high for collaborating with the Nicaraguan Contras, but this goes beyond even that.

@michellemalkin Waxmans part of the original infection! Liberalism!

@michellemalkin Henry Waxman is part of the problem, his policies are leading to American citizens getting Ebola and Enterovirus.

@michellemalkin Frickin Dems always want to turn a life threatening situation political. Waxman is a repugnant farce. #tcot

That's just a damned stupid thing to say. @michellemalkin @WaxmanClimate MT "public health is tangential to the immigration issue"

Speaking of that:

All new entrants coming into the U.S. should be sent to Waxman's district first, let him do the screening #EbolaHearing

Great idea!



Apparently, we can’t have Ebola ‘travel ban,’ because deception or something; Really? One point destroys claim
