An immigration enforcement advocate is outraged over a report showing that illegal aliens have been allowed to bypass security to board airplanes at two Texas airports.
Fox 14 in El Paso reported in a 2014 story that the National Border Patrol Council, which represents border patrol agents, said their clients have reported seeing the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) allowing illegal aliens to fly without providing photo identification at the airports at Laredo and El Paso, Texas.
To the dismay of the U.S. citizens standing in line waiting to be screened, agents observed as illegals were walked around security. The illegals had been issued I-862 notices to appear in court documents and were allowed to use those notices as identification.
During an appearance on American Family Radio, Dave Ray, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), said this has been brought on because illegal aliens are coming into the county in such large numbers and asking for political asylum.
"They are being walked around TSA and put directly on airplanes. They have no form of ID. We don't know who they are. They have no background check, and they are being walked around and put on passenger airplanes with other Americans," Ray laments. "Now when's the last time you got on an airplane without an ID? It's not going to happen. But if you're here illegally, there must be a different rule that applies to you."
