You Couldn’t Get Away With it, But Illegal Immigrants Are Getting on Planes Without Photo IDs


The border situation just keeps getting worse and worse, and has the potential off affecting every aspect of American society for decades to come. With diseases, gangs, and potentially terrorists, being allowed to cross the border unfettered, now there are reports that released illegal immigrants are being allowed on airplanes without showing the photo ids the rest of us must provide when going through security:

Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.

“This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza. “This just adds insult to injury. Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.”

“The National Border Patrol Council adamantly opposes the decision of DHS to release the illegal aliens who have been transported from the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector to other locations for processing. The lack of consequences has furthered this crisis and will only continue to do so. The fact that TSA is accepting the I-862 (Notice to Appear) as a form of identification and allowing illegal aliens to travel commercially shows just how little regard the federal government has for its own immigration laws.”

Great, so when I get on a plane in a few hours, I could be sitting next to someone with a communicable disease, or maybe even a terrorist who has forged one of these Notice to Appear forms!

The NBPC is right, the federal government has little regard for its own immigration laws – or for any other law or the safety of its citizens, for that matter! This Administration is a danger to us all.
