St. Augustine, FL – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) today issued the following statement regarding the Ebola crisis:

“To protect Americans from Ebola, the President needs to implement travel restrictions, up to and including a ban on flights from Ebola-affected countries.  He should also suspend visas for foreigners from these countries. The President has the authority to take these actions under existing law, but if he persists in refusing to act then Congress needs to compel action.  I urge Speaker John Boehner to reconvene the House as soon as possible so the people's representatives can vote on these protective measures."
