CDC Refuses to Directly Answer If Ebola Patient a US Citizen

October 1, 2014

Tuesday during the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention press conference, which confirmed the first case of Ebola in the United States, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden refused to directly answer if the man who traveled from Liberia to Texas earlier this month was a citizen of the Untied States. When directly asked if the patient is an American citizen, Frieden would only say, “He is visiting family who live in this country. Do we have any other questions in the room?”  Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

    But now we know, he is not a US citizen; this irresponsible and dishonorable man lied about being exposed to Ebola victims in his apartment in Monrovia, and he lied to medical staff in Dallas about his exposure to Ebola patients. Now he has died and infected people. But if his relatives here are illegals or overstayed Visas, they need to be deported back to Liberia. Unfortunately, Obama & Co thugs protect illegals and lawbreakers because they are comfortable in the company of like lawbreakers.

    What is the significance of this question – if he’s an American citizen? Is it just automatically assumed that he’s an illegal alien? What if the man is a Liberian citizen, legally using his Liberian passport to travel to the US to see relatives? Is there anything illegal about that? What if the passenger was a woman from Sweden? Would the same question have been asked? Would the question have been asked if the patient had flown to Salt Lake City, instead of Dallas? And is the question also intended to establish that only US citizens should get medical treatment, and let visitors die or be sent back to their home countries? And the spokesperson for the CDC is a doctor – the press conference was about medical issues. The doctor isn’t the authority to ask about a patient’s legal status. This whole story is completely bogus and unworthy of a “news” organization.
