Should Congress pass legislation that restricts travel to the U.S. from Ebola-epidemic countries?

Yes

1
If few people travel to the U.S. from Ebola hot zones, it will reduce infection.
2
Enacting restrictions would make citizens feel better and reduce hysteria.
3
Someone could have Ebola and not know, so it?s better to just keep them out.
4
If we just keep people out, the U.S. won?t focus on curing the real problem.
Add your own "yes" argument

No

1
Restricting travel would keep aid workers from getting to where they ned to be.
2
Because of varied flight plans, people could come in from West Africa anyway.
3
If people hide movements because of a ban, we won't know of potential problems.
4
Making things harder for aid workers means more people will be infected.
5
If there are more infected people, it?s more likely that Ebola will spread.
