A top Republican congressman claims the Obama administration is exploring plans to bring non-U.S. citizens infected with Ebola to the United States for treatment.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that his office has received “information from within the administration” that these plans are being developed. So far, only American Ebola patients have been brought back to the U.S. for treatment from the disease epicenter in West Africa.

Goodlatte warned that expanding that policy could put the country at more risk.

“Members of the media, my office have received confidential communications saying that those plans are being developed,” Goodlatte said Monday night.

“This is simply a matter of common sense that if you are concerned about this problem spreading–and this is a deadly disease that we’re even concerned about the great health care workers when they come back not spreading it–we certainly shouldn’t be bringing in the patients.”

The chairman wrote a letter last week to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry asking whether such plans exist, but he says he has not gotten a response.


The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch also reported, shortly before Goodlatte sent the letter, that the administration is “actively formulating” plans to bring Ebola patients into the U.S., with the specific goal of treating them “within the first days of diagnosis.”

  • Goodlatte is right, but he has a lot of nerve saying it.

    • Oil Can Harry

      You beat me to it.

      I don’t know if Obama is plotting to import Ebola patients into the US but I do know Goodlatte supports importing millions of Hispanics here through Amnesty.

      • Sick of it

        I’m not a fan of drug-resistant TB OR Ebola.

  • MekongDelta69

    Sure, why not? [/sarc] We bring every other loser group into this sewer (formerly known as the greatest country in the history of the earth).

    Meanwhile the VA treats us like garbage…

    • MannyR

      Their literally denying combat veterans back from overseas doctors appointments for PTSD or ignoring them until they commit suicide or just go away. Meanwhile he sends our military to an Ebola hot zone for a non military oriented mission to help blacks while our on citizens can’t get the promised benefits they earned dodging 7.62rounds overseas. And what does anyone do? Nothing. Zip . Nada. I’ve come to the conclusion since retard was re elected in 2012 that the US isn’t worth fighting or dying for and have since begun to make plans to move permanently to South America. Call me a quitter or tell me not to let the door hit me in the backside on the way out…whatever.

      • Nancy

        I’m right there with ya, Manny. Those of us with children still under our roofs would be foolish not to have an Escape Plan already in place. Sure, I’d like to stay and fight with my white brethren, but keeping our kids alive and safe is our first priority.

    “If my people are to be destroyed by the Ebola virus, then so too the hated whites who have brought so much destruction and hate to the black race.” Barack Hussein Obama

    Well, he could have said it.

    • Truthseeker

      If it weren’t for the White race, most Blacks would’ve either starved to death, been killed in tribal warfare, or fallen victim to disease. We give them food, money and medical aid, and it’s never enough. We let them live in our countries, where they have more opportunities to prosper than anywhere else, and we get called White supremacist oppressors. We elect one of them our president, and he works to destroy us. We can never win with these people. It’s time to stop seeking their approval.

      • Anglo

        I’ve never wanted Blacks’ approval; I just want to be rid of them.

      • MannyR

        It was time long long ago. As Richard Butler said “We’ve got ourselves into a hell of a mess in this country.”

    • George Costanza

      How many Africans have died from Ebola so far? 5,000? Why is Obama sending in 4,000, mostly WHITE service men and women? is it to “even” the score??

      • dd121

        I see I’m not the only one suspicious of his motives.

    • MannyR

      He’s thinking it. Over and over and over….

  • none of your business

    Part of Cloward Priven, overwhelm the system. A NYC hospital had to transfer all its ICU patients to accommodate some idiot just returned from Africa. It has been turned into a racial issue, save the Africans but kill White Americans. It is also a liberal vs conservative issue. I wonder what side liberal white women will support?

    • TruthBeTold

      Today I learned that Cloward and Piven were at the signing of the ‘Motor Voter’ law under Clinton which now makes sense:

  • Big Pharma needs more Ebola victims here to test the vaccine on.

    There’s method in what seems like madness. I agree with others that Obama’s hatred of whites motivates his thinking and actions, but the bigger agenda seems to be to enrich Big Pharma, which reportedly has developed a vaccine.

    The power elites who pull puppet Obama’s strings would need more Ebola patients in the USA in order to test the vaccine on and monitor the results.

    Follow the money, folks. There’s billions to be made off Ebola and there’s the power elites working on getting their mitts on that money now.

    • Valmont

      If a vaccine is found, won’t the shrieking begin in milliseconds for the evil ones of Big Pharma to dispense it for free to our brethren in Africa?

      • Free for the feral blacks yes, but not “free” the government, “aid” and “charity” organizations, etc. Will all pay the pharmaceutical companies for the drugs, and thats all that matters. As with everything else which the life sustaining iv drip into africa is made of, this too will be paid for by you and me.

      • none of your business

        The AIDS meds cost $900.00 per month for American insurance companies. But they are given free of charge to worthless Africans. The meds don’t keep them from raping babies to death as an AIDS cure though.

    • Juggernaut3000

      The government needs Ebola victims here to expose American Whites to the deadly infection.

      It’s a part of their War on Whites and Genocide of the White Race.

      All else is secondary, and it should be appallingly clear to anyone who’s been paying attention.

  • Adolf Verloc

    Judicial Watch? Meh. Larry Klayman is as nutty as a fruitcake.

    • Yancy Derringer

      It was Judicial Watch who successfully sued the Department of Justice to release the Fast and Furious documents Obama kept hidden by “executive privelege.” Judicial Watch is now pressing for indictments, including Holder’s.


    • TruthBeTold

      Klayman is nutty but I believe he was forced out of JW and sued.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Obama administration is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment.

    Dead or alive, they’ll be voting Democrat in next week’s election.

    The obama regime must have a damning NSA file on Mitch McConnell.

    The plan includes special waivers of existing laws and regulations.

    This is tyranny imposed by a dictator. It is criminal to import and inflict on the American public a deadly, contagious pathogen with no cure.

    The time to Water the Tree of Liberty is drawing near…

  • JohnEngelman

    Ebola is not always lethal, but the treatment is very expensive. Ebola is one more reason to keep Negroes from migrating to the United States.

    • LHathaway

      Some leftist will argue that Ebola has no affinity for any particular race. Whites and Asians can harbor Ebola. You may be right, John, but I think the main reason to prevent blacks from immigrating to your white country is eventual white extinction. The Caribbean islands seemed to go first, African seems close behind them in getting rid of whites, Brazil and the US seem next on the getting-rid-of-whites agenda.

      • JohnEngelman

        Blacks are unlikely to cause “eventual white extinction.” What they do cause is bad enough: crime and welfare expense. Most of them are genetically ill suited for the demands of a modern high tech civilization.

        Most are at least dimly aware that they need us to manage their affairs.

        • MannyR

          Their not smart enough to think long term in that sense.

        • WR_the_realist

          They seem eager to wipe out the few whites left in South Africa, after “mission completed” in Rhodesia. They don’t care if the consequences are that they starve in poverty. At least they got rid of Whitey.

        • LHathaway

          If they are aware, it would just make them resent us more. There may be something to Richard Lynn’s Asian, white, black dynamic, with Asians showing less visible dysfunctions on average but I suspect if you live long enough John you may have to face up to the fact blacks are as intelligent as whites.

          • JohnEngelman

            As I have gotten older I have had to fact up to the fact that most blacks are less intelligent than whites, and more prone to crime and venery. I used to think they were our equals.

          • WR_the_realist

            Where did you get your revelation that blacks are as intelligent as whites? The data I’ve seen is consistent with blacks being one standard deviation behind whites.

          • LHathaway

            I agree with you, much of the data shows that blacks on average are less intelligent than white. Then again, much of the ‘research’ into racial differences in intelligence, at least done 100 year ago or longer, was likely fabricated for the purpose of making their white audience feel better about themselves. Probably done so (whites feeling better about themselves) so they would be kinder to people of color. . .

            Most of the new evidence suggests white on average are smarter than blacks (and both are less intelligent than asians), never-the-less I suspect it will turn out that blacks are as intelligent as whites.

          • WR_the_realist

            You seem to have swallowed the left Kool Aid on this issue. IQ tests were not designed to prove white superiority. They were designed to test for intelligence in a way they would correlate well both with academic and job performance and subjective notions of intelligence. Asians do somewhat better on IQ tests than whites do and blacks do a lot worse. That doesn’t sound like a test designed to prove white superiority. The notion that the results were “fabricated” is a lie promoted by the late Stephen Gould, who was driven by his own leftist biases far more than the psychometricians were driven by any biases of their own.

    • none of your business

      It is 70 percent lethal which is unacceptable. It is also an absolutely horrible disease to go through and treat with the constant threat of infection of the providers. Ebola treatment in America costs about $21,000 per day. It will come out of your medicare.

    • MannyR

      Americans need another reason to keep Africans from immigrating into our country like you need another reason to keep Michael Myers from entering your house at dinner time. Its common sense. It’s no brainer.

  • TruthBeTold

    Will the treatment centers be located in black neighborhoods or in white areas?

    Is the administration targeting a specific group? Is he exploiting the one group that willingly helps others hoping they too will become infected and spread the disease so they too can know what it’s like to be treated like Africans?

    • MannyR

      You literally hit it right on the head! I’ve been saying this for a while. He won’t enact a travel ban because he knows no ones gives 2 s#its what happens in “the cradle of civilization”. He’s wants Americans to be freaked out and therefore demand a vaccine be developed ASAP so that his fellow Africans have a fighting chance.

    • Juggernaut3000

      1. White areas. Blacks will be brought in. Apartments will be constructed so blacks can receive treatment and their loved ones housed near by. They’ll be allowed to stay forever, of course.

      2. The administration is targeting Whites for extermination. Treatment will be given to black Africans first, black Americans next and then every other non-White group while Whites will be locked out.

      Ask American Vets how that feels.

  • IstvanIN

    Expose our troops by sending them to Afreaka, expose our citizens by bringing them here. Sounds like Barack Obala. What will he do if all the nurses go on a sick-out?

  • libertarian1234

    While this policy might not be put into play, there are going to be much else that will be far worse in the next two years.

    The community organizer has almost openly declared himself. As Rush said recently, Obama is pushing aside all concerns about whether what he does passes muster with anybody, including the Democrats, and is now going down the last few yards at reckless abandon.

    He’s had this plan all along. It’s why he wanted to be pres. His Obamacare has been in the bottom drawer and finally pulled out after which the sycophantic John Roberts made up a story about forcing people to buy insurance amounted to a tax…not a mandate from the government. Obama’s plan to inundate the country with brown bodies and declaring amnesty for the ones already here has been sitting and waiting as well.

    He has other mandates and EO’s yet to be revealed also, and all of them likely spell disaster for the people who founded and built this country.

    This nation will be unrecognizable after two more years. Rush also claims he can’t be impeached. He didn’t have to say why, because everybody knows why. If the community organizer is impeached, there will be a race war throughout the land.

    And the white weenies who have the power to stop him won’t lift a finger to do so because it will jeopardize their wealth, power and assets.

    And the military higher ups have been thoroughly culled by Carter, then Clinton and now purged mercilessly by Obama, so there won’t be a military coup to force him from power.

    In effect, we have to sit here like toy ducks in a shooting gallery hoping we’re not all eliminated while Obama has control of the gun.

    And, since our elites are too cowardly to act with courage and distinction, maybe we deserve to just accept all the negatives and take even more abuse, then wait until we’re told to get in the back of the bus.

    Or maybe a leader will appear. A Buddhist saying goes something like, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”

    Modified to today’s situation can it be said that, “When the people are ready, a leader will appear?

  • Anglo

    So who would be paying to transport the Ebola patients to the US and who would be paying for their care? We know the answers to those two questions, don’t we.

    • Juggernaut3000

      Look in the mirror. And don’t be shocked when your taxes skyrocket in the next few years to pay for obamacare and ebola-stricken African blacks by the 747 load flown in to infect White American citizens.

  • Tarczan

    The Senate will not switch to the Republicans, there will be cheating and fraud on a massive scale, and this will likely happen. Obama will take this as his mandate to do whatever he wants, as if he needs it now.

    • Ike Eichenberg

      Even if they did take control of the senate, the rinos wouldn’t do anything to slow down the disaster-in-chief anyway.

  • Ebola… Africa’s greatest gift to America.

    White people need a country of their own.

  • Ella

    What fancy lobbying pharmaceutical group desires to push the ebola agenda onto American tax payers?

  • Is his name really “good latte”? Sounds like the president of Nigeria. Oh well, he’s right.

  • Joey Patton

    Of course nobody is every worried about the cost – which will be paid for by white middle class Americans.
