White House still in denial of need to ban travel from Ebola outbreak countries...

This seems like a no-brainer to me.  As I understand it, we are talking about 100 people a day. That won't kill any country and our governments first priority should be protecting us.

Via Mediaite:
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today reaffirmed that the government doesn’t think a travel ban between the U.S. and countries affected with Ebola is a good idea. Fox News’ Ed Henry asked, “Why is it still appropriate for the U.S. to allow people to fly to America from the hot zone?”
Earnest said, “Quite simply, Ed, because there are––there’s a multi-layered screening protocol that’s in place to ensure that individuals that may have symptoms consistent with Ebola are not even able to board planes in West Africa.”
