WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials will begin asking travelers about illness if they're entering the country from areas with confirmed swine flu.

What a bunch of fools. Endangering us all.
Send the illegals directly to the ER.
There’s a solution
And of course they’ll all tell the truth. /s
And the passengers will reply, “No.”
I thought that some countries were taking the passengers’ temperatures as they entered the country. That might at least do some good.
All it will take is for people to bring this to a few dozen cities, and then it will be a bit late to act.
But no doubt they’ve got plenty of Tamiflu for Obama and his pals.
Scuzza moi, do you have any swine flu? No? Oh, pardone. Please come on in!
A bit late..
Border? What border?
Some poor U.S. tourist who mistakenly drank the water or ate some fruit will be stuck in Mexico.
Meanwhile, the illegals will be entering at sites that aren’t checked.
Above her pay grade too??
Is there anyone in this cabinet that can tell the difference between a tail and a set of horns so they can grab the bull and face the situation?
Asking about whether they’ve been ill... right.
“Excuse me, sir, have you been ill?”
“COUGH HACK COUGH HACK HACK COUGH COUGH... No, senor.”
“That’s fine. Welcome to the United States of America. Would you like a pillow? Is there anything we can do for you?”
CLOSE THE BORDERS AND CLOSE THEM NOW!
How can they ask about the flu at the border if the illegals are crossing it..................... ILLEGALLY!
Oh you lied.Let me smack you hand.
I guess this includes illegals?
We can’t control diseases at the boarder if we can’t control the flow of illegal immigration.
Illegal immigration is now a public health danger.
It’s funny because I’m from Puerto Rico (a U.S. territory), and every time I leave the San Juan airport, I am asked by TSA and U.S. Customs if I’m an American citizen or not (which I am, of course) because there are a lot of Dominicans and other Caribbean natives passing themselves as Puerto Ricans in order to be able to enter the U.S. mainland without passports or without going through Customs.
But, the thing is, they ask you for a “YES” or “NO” answer. So, if a Dominican or Caribbean native can pick up the Puerto Rican slanG on how to say “NO” (which is basically “NO” — pronounced linguistically like ANY OTHER “NO” — then they’re ‘good to go’ and off to the U.S. mainland.
I live in Wisconsin and we don’t have those signs. My sister and I visited my brother in LA and then drove to San Diego to see me other sister for a surprise birthday party. (I-5?)
I was astounded by the signs, and this was over 10 years ago.
Is that sign on the US side of the boarder?
Good grief, Silvie - I gotta wonder if the dolts in Washington have a clue what they’re talking about when they say ‘border’. I’m beginning to think that even Napolitano is clueless, and she was our governor fer cryin’ out loud...
Perry needs to take the bull by the horns and close or seriously screen our borders.
I just can’t imagine anybody lying about such a thing. /sarc
It first looked mostly like a swine flu virus but closer analysis showed it is a never-before-seen mixture of swine, human and avian viruses. A direct vaccine won't be available for months, Tamiflu meds do help a lot.
Here's the kicker, it is H1N1 type virus, so what? It is the same strain as the Spanish flu that killed millions and was thought extinct since 1957.
How did it reappear and recombine with avain and human flus to make a new very lethal virus? It has a 6% mortality rate and is spreading in Mexico rapidly as an aerosol.
It kills by getting your immune system to over-react and fill the lungs with fluid. The younger and healthier, i.e. better immune system, the more lethal it is. That's what makes it so unusual from all other flus.
It was first detected in Mexico on March 18th and no alerts were given. Anyone who has been to Mexico in the last two months was exposed, 10 day incubation period. Even if you had a mild case you may have passed it on. The patients are expanding exponentially and the many rural areas of Mexico have not been surveyed.
We have to quarantine Mexico immediately.
This may be a WMD attack because of the possibly manufactured nature of the mutation of this virus.
Then, we have Mexican children who are bused across the border to go to our schools. Another health risk.
He should as soon as it's his responsibility to do so.
Until Texas is a nation, Texas shouldn't have to.
There are so many rules in this country today that, because of the way they are enforced, accomplish nothing but the inconvenience of the good and law-abiding. It’s terrible.
Oh man - the comments on that game thread are just to die for!!
“Yo no tengo much dinero para uno plano ticketo nuevo, so, um, yo no tengo swino flu-o.”
Everyone coming from Mexico will of course not lie.
too little too late.
they want to kill a bunch of us off so there is more stuff for them.
One of those better to ask forgiveness than permission things. We can do what we want with our own borders and sort it out with the Feds later. He’s already told them once that if they won’t do anything about the Mexican border he will.
“No sir, I haven’t felt sick recently.”
50,000 people later
“What? No man, not sick, haven’t been since 3 years ago.”
El Señor trabaja de maneras misteriosas.
They are telling schools to be prepared to shut down, but they won’t close the border.
The CDC says “It’s impossible to contain” (so we won’t bother trying.)
What do we do with a US citizen who thinks they are sick trying to return home? Ban them from their own country? Is that constitutional?
The one that I, a US citizen, had to argue my way through last week as I tried to get home to Ohio from Canada. It was ridiculous. I was arrested 10 years ago for disorderly conduct (during a divorce.) $100 fine, no probation, no jail. This popped up on their screens in Houlton, ME of all places. They actually took me to an interrogation room for an explanation.
"Homeland Security" is a joke.
“The CDC says Its impossible to contain (so we wont bother trying.)”
That’s pretty much the excuse the open border crowd has been using successfully for illegal immigration.
WHAT the hell good is THAT?
Just about everything I read lately raises my blood pressure. BO and his ilk will celebrate when they cause FrogMom to stroke out.
I live in Arizona, I’m expecting a zombie attack from the south.
It's the same poppy cock as standing at the ticket counter at the airport and these bozos asking questions like;
Are you the person to pack these bags?
Have these bags been in your possession while traveling?
What non sense
Cough Cough no and that is a racist question.
Heads are going to roll if an outbreak is traced to illegal alien.
We were warned.

My brother and his wife, who live in Germany, are coming home for a visit in three weeks. I have much trepidation about what the world will be like in that short time. Time will tell. Part of me thinks this who hysteria is smoke and mirrors courtesy of 0 and company. Who knows?
