    You really can't control it at the border because a legal US citizen flying back into the USA could be a carrier.

    +1,000,000,000 that was the first thought to enter my head. all the Libs saying that we would have fewer health problems if we could just socialize medicine but what about securing the border. For decades immigrants would be quarantined if they did not pass health checks at Ellis Island.
    God invented cops so that firemen could have heroes too!

    Once again, you can't control air traffic crossing borders. You would have to place quarantine areas at every airport accepting passengers from flights that originated outside the US.

    Immigration is VERY different than it was during the days of Ellis Island. Back then most immigrants were Europeans coming over by boat.

    Today people come from all over and land at any airport that handles international flights. And these people could be US citizens that were exposed during their stay outside the country and are returning home.

    With the worldwide air travel of today it's much harder to maintain control of infectious diseases. Especially those diseases that are spread human to human, which is the case with the current swine flu.

    People need to disassociate the current swine flu epidemic and US border control. Two completely different entities that are not related.
