The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allows illegal immigrants to use arrest warrants for ID verification at airport security checkpoints.
Fox News’ Bill Melugin tweeted the confirmation from the TSA Friday.
“For non-citizens and non-U.S. nationals, who do not otherwise have acceptable forms of ID for presentation at security checkpoints, TSA may also accept certain DHS-issued forms, including ICE Form I-200 (Warrant for Arrest of an Alien),” TSA press secretary R. Carter Langston said in a statement to Fox.
Illegals are supposed to receive additional screening and their DHS documents are crosschecked with CBP databases.
Then the illegals are “allowed into the secure area of the airport,” the TSA said.
TSA Administrator David Pekoske shared the information after Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) inquired about illegal immigrants flying across the U.S. in December.
“TSA’s response confirms the Biden Administration is knowingly putting our national security at risk,” Gooden told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Unknown and unvetted immigrants shouldn’t even be in the country, much less flying without proper identification.”
