TSA allowing illegal aliens to fly without showing proof of identity

TSA allowing illegal aliens to fly without showing proof of identity

As the warm weather sets in in most of the country, many Americans are looking forward to summer travel. Which means they are also looking forward to the interminable waits in airport screening lines while TSA agents pore over their IDs.

Unless they are illegal aliens, in which case no documentation is necessary. The Washington Examiner explains:

The federal agency tasked with overseeing security at transportation hubs has been violating its own policy by allowing migrants who have been released from federal custody onto flights despite not having required documents, according to several Department of Homeland Security officials.

For the past six months, the Transportation Security Administration has allowed migrants released from the custody of other Homeland Security agencies to board flights to other parts of the country despite the passengers lacking any of the 15 documents it states are the only acceptable forms of identification.

The obvious danger of such a move is underscored by the sheer numbers of individuals who fit this description: Since January, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has released more than 200,000 migrants who arrived at the border as part of a family. A new report suggests that number will jump dramatically, with experts revising their prediction for alien border apprehensions this year upward from 931,000 to 1,072,000. And while the Left downplays the number of detained migrants whose names were on a federal government list of known or suspected terrorists, it is worth recalling that only a handful were needed to bring of 9/11.
