Border law-breakers evidently no threat to their fellow passengers

A border enforcement advocacy finds it “comical” that Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is allowing illegal aliens to use arrest warrants as IDs to board U.S. flights.

During a recent Senate hearing, Senator Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) got the administrator of the Transportation Security Administration to admit that since the beginning of the year DHS has allowed nearly 1,000 illegal aliens to use arrest warrants or deportation notices as valid identification for boarding flights to take them into the interior of the United States.

In response to more inquiries by Hawley, TSA Administrator David Pekoske added:

“They have an interview with the [TSA] officers that are on scene at the checkpoint …. They will bring in the federal security director if needed …. We aren’t looking at whether a person is legal or illegal in the country [because] our role is to make sure that people that might pose a risk to transportation is significant enough to either require enhanced screening or to not allow them to fly.”

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, finds it “almost comical” that TSA is issuing arrest warrants that are then allowed as proper identification to board a plane.
