tsa line at airport; illegal migrant issues

If you’re rushing to the airport and forget your photo ID, good luck being allowed on the plane.

But many migrants without “an acceptable form of identification,” according to airport signs, don’t need a photo. They get special treatment.

Migrants who have entered the country using President Joe Biden’s new CBP (Customs and Border Protection) One app — about 422,000 of them — can fly domestically without photo ID.

A sign posted in Miami International Airport tells migrants: “1. Notify the TSA officer that you are a migrant. 2. The TSA officer will take a photo (optional). 3. If requested, provide your alien identification number or biographic information.”

Taking a photo would allow the TSA officer to confirm that the person boarding matches the person pictured in the CBP One app. But the airport sign repeats, “Photo capture is voluntary.” The migrant trying to board could be anybody.

An American without photo ID will likely be grilled for more than an hour and patted down, and their luggage will be gone over inch by inch while their plane takes off without them.

Businessman Connor Esraelian, who was flying from San Francisco to his home in Chicago, forgot his wallet with his photo ID. He filmed the 75-minute ordeal to get on the plane, posting it on TikTok. He called it “a nightmare.”

He didn’t get an E-ZPass, but migrants do.

This is our government kowtowing to the immigration lobby and putting Americans second, safety be damned.

Even worse is the 16-year delay in implementing the Real ID Act, passed in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks to prevent people from using lax forms of ID to illegally get on planes.

Most of the hijackers used state driver licenses issued by states with lax requirements to get on the planes. They weren’t in the country illegally.

Following the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation, Congress enacted Real ID, barring TSA from accepting state driver licenses or other IDs that don’t require proof of being in the U.S. legally. Real ID was supposed to go into effect in 2008, but it’s been repeatedly delayed. Now the official start date is May 2025. Don’t hold your breath.

All 50 states now provide Real ID licenses to legal residents who request them. But blue states such as New York and Illinois are normalizing being illegal.

Illinois used to issue a license for illegals with a purple stripe across the top and the words “Not Valid for Identification.” But last June, Illinois discontinued it, in Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s words, “decreasing stigma and creating more equitable systems for all.”

Illinois Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias said the purple stripe had become “the ‘Scarlet Letter’ of someone’s immigration status.” Now legal and illegal residents of Illinois will qualify for the same “standard license” that says “Federal Limits Apply,” a fuzzy reference to the May 2025 deadline. In the meantime, illegals are boarding planes.

The same is true in New York state, which issues a “standard” license available to everyone, including illegals. It carries a vague notation, “Not for Federal Purposes,” which applies only after May 2025. The state Department of Motor Vehicles is barred from even asking a customer about citizenship status.

New York City’s ID program also blurs the distinction between legals and illegals. It’s advertised as one ID for all New Yorkers regardless of immigration status. The card looks like a state driver license, and nothing — not one word — alerts the viewer otherwise. It’s unlikely to work on a plane, but likely to allow anybody to get past security and into the elevator in an office tower.

An open southern border flooded with millions of migrants from over 100 countries, some hostile to America, puts our nation at risk. Most migrants are just desperately seeking economic opportunity. But it only took a handful of sinister actors with misleading ID to bring down the World Trade Center and cost nearly 3,000 Americans their lives.

Allowing migrants — or anyone — to board airplanes without photo ID, and promoting ID cards that blur that lines between legal and illegal, sabotage us. Don’t let Biden and the hard left play Russian roulette with our lives. Remember 9/11.

First off they are illegal aliens. Not migrants. Basically they entered our country illegally.
They are not immigrants. They ended our country illegally.
Americans were mandated to wear masks and be jaded with an experimental shot. Why wasn’t the criminals that entered our country illegally forced to do the same thing?
They aren’t even medically cleared of drug tested. Why? Could it be the Mexican Drug Cartels are funneling money to our politicians her in the United States.

As a 75 year old great grandmother I have been strip searched. Wanded for everyone to see like a common criminal all because I set off the X-ray machine, for I have 2 artificial hips. I carry a card from my orthopedic surgeon but they wouldn’t accept that as proof. But migrants that have just walked across the border are allowed on board without a photo ID or any ID. Really? I haven’t flown in 8 years and am not planning to. If I did I would not board the plane if there were migrants on board. Sorry, I have nothing against people immigrating into the US. But they have to be legal. Only the US lets millions and millions of people come in. From all over. Everyone. We don’t know who they are. Are given everything under the sun. Which is our tax money. But SS and Medicare and Welfare payments are or being stopped or cut from the citizens. No more money. But come in over de border, here you go. We will fly you where you want to go. Here is 5,000 dollar here is your soc sec nummer. Go get a job. Welcome to the USA. The American citizen whose job you are taken away is paying for all this largesse. Ole Joe and all the dems in the congress have gotta to go. And the MSM arrested for supporting insurrection perpetrated by ole Joe.

They are illegals and the reason the democrats want them is to illegally vote for a Democratic President. That’s what Obama did. This is America we speak English!!!!!! All people’s that have entered the USA has had to learn English up until a few years ago!! My great grandparents on both sides had to learn and speak English. The only time they spoke German was at home. They were proud to be Americans!! Now other countries are trying to take over our country and our leaders are doing nothing to stop it! My opinion and I’m sticking to it!

Safety of an American citizen is the very last thing on the minds of those in charge of it For if they really were to do their jobs properly they would have to take measures that would offend those that should be really watched That would be the job of the well and properly trained team But that would be discriminatory and racist and that will not do Must not offend To bother and inconvenient everyone else with pointless procedures is OK Would be laughable if it were not so costly and pointless Only fed govt can create jobs that are a dream come true for every zero dreaming of becoming a number

They aren’t “illegal immigrants” or “illegal aliens”; the are unvetted invaders, thus an enemy. This regime has deliberately failed to uphold Article IV Sect. 4 (as well as a lot more) of the Constitution of the United States of America as well as given aid and comfort to the enemy. They are TRAITORS and provenly “America last” saboteurs.

“Most migrants are just desperately seeking economic opportunity”. If by economic opportunity you mean tax payer funded handouts, that would be a true statement. The sorry, good for nothing, old devil in the White House who is controlled by Obummer the communist Alinsky disciple, following through on his pledge to “fundamentally transform” this nation, all a big scheme to retain permanent power!

Hard to believe isn’t it? I can’t board a flight using my regular old state driver’s license or even use my retired military ID… Oh, no! I need a “special” driver’s license. Meanwhile, Osama Bin Sanchez gets fast tracked into the country. In the Navy, it was called DERELICTION OF DUTY. These politicians have abdicated our safety and sovereignty to appease their pooitical agenda. And what is that agenda? Judging by cause and effect, one can only conclude it’s to fundamentally destroy America! And they wonder why Trump keeps winning?!

Dictator Beijing biden is using the VA to process Health Claims for his ILLEGAL ALIEN TERRORIST INVASION putting our Veterans LAST with a WAITING LIST of OVER 1 Million U.S. Military Veterans in backlog putting their lives and health at risk.
Dictator Beijing biden is INTENTIONALLY and ILLEGALLY using Federal Funds to give aid and comfort to CRIMINALS here ILLEGALLY in the United States.
This is a MAJOR INSULT to our Veterans the United States and US.
President Trump took care of our Veterans and there would NEVER have been an ILLEGAL ALIEN TERRORIST INVASION of MILLIONS being put before AMERICANS.
This is another Prime example of why to vote for President Trump.

Don’t worry people. The Dems. will not last long. The Muslims are gaining in population strength and then they will use our own governmental laws to insert themselves into the political structure of our country. Before you know it, we will not have to worry anymore. The ones who don’t comply by becoming a Muslim will be eliminated. Shoot I wonder if my comment will not even make it onto this comment board. Great Britain by all rights has become a Muslim nation already. They learned well from Hitler and his propaganda chief.

This whole border and immigration issue is sickening. There is not one Democrat in this Country, especially those Political DemocRATS, who give one fig about the lives and safety of the Citizens and Tax Paying people of this Country. Their only concern is their pockets full of money and the life style the hope to continue until they retire and still continue that same life style. They should be ashamed, but they have no conscience. In truth they should be prosecuted for endangering the lives of the Legal Citizens of this Country.

The only thing that keeps liberal-democrats in office is unequal process. American citizens need to realize that they don’t even represent us. They will do anything, including, cheat. They are depending on the fact that conservatives are obedient to the law and that is why January 6 was a case of entrapment, largely. When “violators will not be prosecuted” is the policy, there is no point to government which is levying taxes to enrich itself.

Democrats have blood on their hands if they would just open their eyes and take a look. Chinese fentanyl made into pills in Mexico and smuggled across the border has killed somewhere between 80,000 and 100,000 Americans in their prime each year biden has been president. HELLO!! That’s 27 to 33 9/11’s every year!!

Government handouts for the invaders are costing us–the taxpayers–almost half a trillion dollars each year!! I hope Gov. Abbott continues to ship them to blue cities. It’s finally sinking in with those liberals that these numbers of unvetted illegals cost communities more than just money. This morning, I heard a horrible account of a mother who had lost her teenage daughter to a vicious 17-year-old Mexican gang member. The family is suing for $100,000,000.

THIS MUST STOP.

Many US citizens must wade through mile long invasive forms to get any kind of assistance; not so for illegals-State/Fed agencies seem to have a No Questions asked policy regarding handing out freebies [at our expense]…the key to welfare kingdom is the SSN which is why we need to STOP our idiot Anchor Baby policy…[ID theft is a big problem among illegals & I witnessed it frequently when I was a Deputy Sheriff in AZ].

Obama running his 3rd. term via Joe. Ridiculous we allow this to happen. I’ll say that if the Democrats get re-elected this coming November, we will enter a 3rd. World War soon after. Open borders, media reporting their opinions instead of news/facts, erasing out history and the corruption in the government running rampant, will doom us as a free Nation. The younger generation is being so played and brainwashed!

first of all the title of the article should read “Pro-illegal immigrant dems playing russian roulette with our safety.” second, if any of this were going on under Trump, democrats would have impeached him again. also, if we (God Forbid) have another 9/11 because terrorists were able to get in this country illegally, I hope the open borders crowd will be able to live with themselves because the blood of innocent Americans will be on their heads.

We dont have a governnt anymore, but a criminal enterprise out to create a new country by replacing those (all citizens) who oppose their ideology. This is not anew movement but one like Hitler who chipped away at lets say the constitution, and the laws of Germany reporting twisted lies, misleading information, always blaming the opposition for all the corrupt things he was doing.While he took a stand for the peoples democracy and how harsh the opposition was being to all of us. punishing all of us in their corruption and greed. It worked because it turned all of Germany against those he deemed undesirables The similarities I think are there

It is really sad the way the Democrats are ruining the country. I really do not know why they want to do this. Most of them will be gone by the time this takes full effect, so I don’t see how they really gain by it. I guess if they’re hoping for future voters? But in reality they won’t be voting for their dumb asses, they will just be taking over and run the country into the ground. It will be the same as the crappy places they came from. America was great, maybe Trump can save it!
