The founder of France's far-right National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen, downplayed remarks made Tuesday that the Ebola virus could address Europe's immigration problem saying it was purely an "observation" about potential disasters. Le Pen handed over the party leadership to his daughter in 2010, but is running as an MEP.
