Is this why Obama updated EO 13295?

I thought this carried enough weight to be used as an OP rather than an update to an existing thread.

On August 1, 2014, a thread appeared titled Obama Signs Executive Order to Detain Americans With ‘Respiratory Illnesses’ in which it is learned that the indicated Executive Order had some wording changed to:

"(b) Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled. This subsection does not apply to influenza." 

On September 17, 2014, a thread titled Doctor: Gov’t ‘Tight-Lipped’ on Respiratory Virus, May be From Illegals was posted regarding Enterovirus 68 was posted wherein this virus is considered as possibly to have come in with the recent spike in illegal immigrants.

Not much is known about the virus other than it is closely related to rhinovirus and spreads primarily as a respiratory illness amd has only been implicated in one death. It has been rare up until recently when a global increase in infections seems to have taken place beginning roughly in 2012.

It is believed to be responsible for a sudden and recent increase in hospitalizations across the country currently and is showing itself to be quite dangerous.

While researching the virus for the thread regarding illegals, I ran across this alarming paper, which shows just how dangerous it could be:

The anticipated eradication of poliovirus emphasizes the need to identify other enteroviral causes of severe central nervous system disease. Enterovirus 68 has been implicated only in cases of respiratory illness. We therefore report a case of fatal meningomyeloencephalitis caused by enterovirus 68 in a 5-year-old boy, which required neuropathology, microbiology, and molecular techniques to diagnose.

This appears to be the case study for the one reported death I've seen referenced in other research regarding this virus.


The patient was a previously healthy 5-year-old boy with up-to-date immunizations who initially sought care for headache, low-grade fever, sore throat, and unilateral neck tenderness in the fall of 2008. He had no tick exposure or travel outside of New Hampshire. A number of classmates reportedly had coldlike illnesses. During the following 2 days, he experienced myalgia and progressive weakness of his arms (right arm to a greater extent than left) and a change in the timbre of his voice. Four days after onset he visited his primary care provider who believed he had a nonspecific viral illness.


In the next few hours the patient developed bowel and bladder incontinence and the inability to walk. Later that evening he was found in bed, apneic and unresponsive, with intermittent tonic posturing of the upper extremities. He had a cardiac arrest en route to the hospital,...

How do they know it was EV-D68 and not some other complicating factor?

Identification and sequencing of enterovirus 68 in the spinal fluid, combined with the characteristic histopathologic pattern of enteroviral central nervous system infection, established this virus as the cause of the fatal illness.3

Fortunately, this type of presentation is not as likely.

Enterovirus 68 appears to be a rare cause of neurologic disease. The CDC Picornavirus Laboratory has identified only 1 other enterovirus 68 from CSF in the past 10 years. Nevertheless, identification of enterovirus 68 and other novel enterovirus neuropathogens will increase our awareness of their clinical role and pathogenesis and help establish their true incidence.

But as we know viruses mutate, and who knows what will pop out of Pandora'a box...

found this earlier today, its pretty interesting. ebola and the EV-D68 virus' could be used to round up and quarantine massive amounts of the population in the untied states, using the UN and possible Russian troops on american soil, heres yhe article... ill09192015 will_09192014

add to URL "will_09192014" for some reason it wont complete it

What do you think all the Fema camps are for and all the bullet's that were bought , holiday celebrations -nope they are saying ebola has gone airborne now be very afraid

Most of the suggested FEMA camps don't exist and the bullet buying has been explained/debunked

And they also told the public there was weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and a nutter in a cave in Afganistan with super good cell signals who they buried at sea , i know what i would rather believe

What was used against the Kurds then?

Sounds like you're trying to make the claims about Bin Laden sound utterly absurd and therefore untrue..

This is all off topic anyway, I was merely pointing out that what you claimed originally to be all untrue and therefore unrelated to this ebola outbreak, I mean it's not even in America and people are trying to link everything to it..

I've never really bought the Fema camp and am fairly well satisfied that I understand that the bullet purchases make sense in the light of training and resupply, etc. So nothing nefarious there beyond the underlying Gestapo attitudes exhibited by many (not all) in authority.

The executive order specifically excludes influenza, but does contain the phrase 'Severe acute respiratory syndromes,' which leaves open to interpretation just what may be used as justification to enact other measures.

Wow not one mention of illegals anywhere in the link, hmmmmm

From what I have read its related to the nasty summer time colds we usually get.

Where do most the illegals come from?

Heck, even the ones from elsewhere come through our southern border.

Smuggling is a major industry. Last year, Mexican authorities in Chiapas discovered two tractor-trailers carrying a total of 500 Central Americans, Indians and Chinese who had just crossed the Guatemalan border. Smuggling fees for immigrants from Asia and Africa depend on factors such as the length and risk of the trip and use of fraudulent documents. Chinese migrants pay as much as $65,000 and Indians about $25,000, according to U.S. border enforcement officials. If they cannot afford to pay upfront, clients borrow from family and associates or work off debts through indentured labor upon arrival in the United States.

Granted the above deals with smuggling, but the fact remains, there is a LO of unregulated human traffick across our southsrn border. ,

Specifically regarding E68 and other Influenza Like Illnesses:

In Latin America as in other regions, HRVs and HEVs account for a substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people with ILI, a finding that provides additional support for the development of pharmaceuticals and vaccines targeting these pathogens.


Acute respiratory infections (ARIs) are a leading cause of acute illness worldwide and remain the most important cause of pediatric mortality [1]. Lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) are among the leading causes of hospitalization and death in children less than 5 years old worldwide, particularly in resource-poor countries [2].

These are the type of diseases which the EO covers. How does that relate to illegal immigrants?

In this study, we investigated the recent circulation of HRV and HEV with emphasis on recombinant strains in children and young adults in Latin America.


Overall, HRVs and HEVs were identified in 16% (548 samples) and 3% (84 samples) of the ILI cases, respectively.

Is this above or below average for other similar diseases?

The frequency of HRV identified in our subjects with ILI is similar or greater to what has been found for influenza virus [30,31], human metapneumovirus [32,33], respiratory syncytial virus [30,31], and adenovirus [31,34] in the region, emphasizing the potential clinical and public health importance of this virus.

Human rhinoviruses and enteroviruses in influenza-like illness in Latin America

Granted, EV-D68 shows of rarely in the samples collected for this study, it's potential danger in manifesting as a neurological disorder gives it a little more weight I would opine.
