TSA Admits Lying About Illegal Aliens Flying Without Proper ID

Kristin Tate, Breitbart, August 22, 2014

A new letter from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) admits that illegal aliens were being allowed to board planes using Notice to Appear forms they received after entering the U.S. illegally. The revelation directly contradicts a TSA statement last month denying such allegations to various media outlets, including Breitbart News. In July Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby broke the news that the TSA was letting illegal aliens board planes using Notice to Appear forms; subsequently, a TSA spokesperson publicly attacked Darby on Twitter, insisting that his report was “completely wrong.”

The newly-surfaced TSA letter was penned on August 7, according to the Gateway Pundit. It was reportedly sent from the TSA to Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX), a member of the Border Security Caucus. The letter confirms that illegal aliens are being allowed to board planes using a Notice to Appear form (also known as I-862), as Darby revealed in July.

Hector Garza, a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) told Darby that Notice to Appear forms can “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.”

According to the Gateway Pundit, the August 7 letter from the TSA admitted, “If a passenger does not have an acceptable form of identification, then the passenger is allowed to present two other forms of identification. One of the two forms of identification must bear the individual’s name and other identifying information such as photo, address, phone number, social security number, or date of birth. TSA may assess a variety of government issued documents to establish passenger identity. The I-862 form may be used along with another form of identification in this instance.”

It continued, “If a passenger can only present a Form I-862, TSA will attempt to establish the passenger’s identity through DHS partner Components, such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).”

Despite the letter’s admissions, the TSA had previously insisted that Darby’s report–which detailed the acceptance of Notice to Appear forms at airports–was untrue.

Ross Feinstein, a press secretary and spokesman of the TSA, took to Twitter to attack Darby and his sources at the NPBC. After claiming that Darby’s report was “completely wrong,” Feinstein falsely complained that no one had “contacted us for a statement and/or info. before publishing story.”

Darby responded to Feinstein, showing a screenshot which proved that he had, indeed, attempt to reach out to the agency via email prior to the publishing of his article.

The TSA continued to deny Darby’s allegations. The agency said in a statement to multiple news outlets, “These reports are false. A Notice to Appear, issued by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), is not an acceptable form of ID at the TSA checkpoint.”

    “Hector Garza, a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council”

    I’ll go ahead and assume that someone named Muhammad al-Camel or something similarly absurd will soon be named head of our anti-terrorism forces and Cheech and Chong will be in charge of drug interdiction efforts.

      Breaking news: Bernie Madoff has been appointed head of the SEC and I have indeed hired a fox to guard my henhouse.

      • We not? We have already seen the BATF involved in running guns to Mexican narco-gangs, a.k.a.”Operation Fast and Furious”.

        • Extropico

          The ignominy of Eric “My People” Holder as head of DOJ can be matched by appointing ISIS members to head the FAA and TSA.

    A lawsuit should be able to stop this. If American citizens have to show a photo ID in order to board a plane, everyone should have to show one. Shut down the TSA.

    • If the suit cited “equal protection under the law”, it would probably win.

      • Pro_Whitey

        You might be right, but the problem of equal protection under the law” is that when you really try to understand the concept, it becomes pretty meaningless. The law interacts with people under an nearly infinite variety of circumstances, and any particular collision of an individual and the law can have an odd result that might seem unfair compared to another’s result. If we can come to an approximate definition of equal protection, it means that the process of law should be relatively standardized, and that the law not make distinctions among individuals that are improper or invalid. The question then becomes, who determines what distinctions are invalid? Ruth Bader Ginsburg types have decided that it is now improper to make distinctions between homosexuals and heterosexuals. Why? Because her motto is, le constitution, c’est moi! That is, because she has the power. With such scum in charge, they will surely find some reason to justify the distinction between law-abiding citizens and illegal alien terrorists that benefits the illegal alien terrorists. To types like her, we are the enemy.

    Another government agency:
    “Lawssss? We dun need no steenkin’ lawssss.”

  • Truthseeker

    How leftists can think that more government is good is beyond me. The government we already have is woefully untrustworthy.

    • Their refrain is usually “We just haven’t spent enough money yet,” though sometimes we are treated to real lu-lus like “Let’s pass the bill so we can see what’s in it” (Nancy Pelosi).

  • willbest

    The TSA is 8.5 billion dollars a year we should be spending on border security being used to harass law abiding citizens while providing zero protection to them.

      I have not flown since TSA was instituted. I refuse to be photographed or physically molested by Obama’s brownshirts (initially ok’d by ignorant Bush) in order to fly. If Americans had any backbone, a mere 2-3 day boycott of flying would have stopped this. Of course, people are much too busy to do anything like that – why, they might miss their vacation, or their meeting, or their football game!

      The next time I fly it will be to leave this cesspool for good.

        I had problems with my passport chip reading in the computer so airport personnel spent 10 minutes trying to scan it; finally, they required me to show two picture I.D.’s with my passport photo against my face. I showed my passport three times before boarding.

    Well, we got the ole fox watchin’ the hen house scenario. Yeah, right, we know how that works out. Whoa, you know what I just did? I made reference to White Western civilization. Uh huh. Oh yes I did. WOW, you say! WHAT! We Whites have a culture? Whoa, I thought we did nothing but appropriate negro culture! I mean, they said so! Any White caught twerking is appropriating negro culture. And, they are! However, do not get me started on negro appropriation of White culture and civilization.I’ll see your twerk, jazz, and rap; I’ll raise you EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD that matters which was developed, invented, and created by Whites. I’m not blinking in this game, mfers. Your turn.

    My friends, this is just more evidence that we live under a corrupt, tyrannical government, which is committed to our dispossession and destruction.

    But this type of situation has existed for as long as there have been governments.

    We white people are responsible for the best civilization this world has yet produced. We represent what I believe to be the optimal balance of intelligence, creativity, and beauty.

    If there are solutions to our present predicaments it is we who are best equipped to find them.

    But we will not do so, as long as we are kept placid, ignorant and divided by the powers that be and their lickspittles in the press and mass media, who project lie upon lie into our homes and our children’s heads.

    So what is to be done?

    For now, we can teach our children the truth about the myth of egalitarianism and diversity, and prepare as best we can for the cataclysmic changes that must eventually come. Seek out those of precious like beliefs and forge alliances. Prepare ourselves to be as self sufficient as possible, and pursue education that gives us the skills that are needed to survive. Ignore the unjust “laws” insofar as you can without being incarcerated. Practice white solidarity whenever possible. Cease to praise the societal created “heroes” like the lecherous Dr. Michael “Martin Luther” King. Someday a remnant of white civilization will have to rebuild upon the ashes.

    It is time to befriend salvageable misguided whites kindness, patience and understanding, in hopes that they can be turned. Rarely is one is ever convinced by angry rhetoric, but by being a friend to another white when he or she is attacked by “diversity”, a doorway of opportunity opens up, and one might just be able to help that poor soul resolve its cognitive dissonance.

    If I sound pessimistic it is because there were many in the Roman Empire who warned of corruption and deterioration, yet the empire fell, as all empires do. Somehow, I think the Germanic “barbarians” who returned to their homelands in the end had the right idea.

    Just horrible

  • kjh64

    This is the same TSA that makes you take off your shoes, scans all of your luggage, makes you separate electronic devices, doesn’t let you take in liquid other than small amounts, show your ID etc. I had a small bottle of water confiscated by TSA and was chosen as part of a random search to have my cell phone scanned for explosives as an obvious White American while Brown foreigners walked on through. This TSA?

  • Is this the same TSA that sexually gropes American citizens with proper ID when we want to fly somewhere, and which kept a Colorado Springs agent on as a passenger screener for an entire year after he pleaded guilty to indecent exposure and sexual assault on a child? I am simply shocked that and agency like this would lie about something.

  • Dale McNamee

    End the TSA & DHS ! They’re useless,worthless, and full of rot and de-comp…

    Also, what makes Hispanic illegals so special ?

    Under this regime, I’m beginning to hate certain nationalities…

  • none of your business

    The 14th amendment and “equal protection under the law” mean exactly what a Judge says it means. That means that a 95 percent White government agency is guilty of disproportionate representation because it is not 13 percent black. But when a government agency is 95 percent black it is NOT GUILTY of disproportionate representation because it is not 70 percent White to reflect the population of the country.

    Also remember that numerous US Civil Rights Commissioners over the years have declared that the 14th amendment and “equal protection under the law” does not apply to Whites.
    LIke communist Russia and China, the law is exactly what the current Judges declare it to be.
    The constitution remember, was written to be interpreted by Judges and not applied as written. The literal VS, Judicial interpretation question was settled as soon as possible, Marbury VS. Madison 1804. President Jackson may have said “Justice Taney has ruled, now let him enforce his ruling.” But Jackson caved and enforced Taney’s ruling. And so it has been since 1804. Sometimes the rulings have benefited Whites, but since Brown VS. Topeka 1956 every ruling has been detrimental to Whites and those rulings are reducing us to an untouchable caste to be exterminated.

    Sad to say, there is no legal, constitutional means for Whites to regain our rights.
