GOP Demands Answers over Policy Allowing Illegals to Board Planes with Arrest Warrants

(Chris Parker, Headline USA) Rep. Pat Fallon, R-Texas, is among several Republicans demanding answers from the Transportation Security Administration after allowing illegal immigrants to use arrest warrants as a form of ID to board planes and public transport.

“The American taxpayers have been footing this bill for almost two years,” Fallon said during an interview with Fox News. “The situation has never literally been worse in our history.”

“If this administration didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all,” he said. “Because this makes absolutely no sense…the border crisis isn’t even a crisis anymore – it’s beyond that. It is a catastrophe.”

Fallon joined dozens of other Republicans led by Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., in sending a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas demanding an explanation from the TSA.

According to the letter, illegal immigrants may use both warrants and deportation orders as forms of ID to board planes. However, these documents are not included on the TSA’s list of acceptable ID forms.

“These documents are not secure documents and can easily be forged, copied, or otherwise manipulated,” the letter, obtained by Fox News Digital, said.

“Given the fact that American citizens are constantly being reminded that their IDs will soon need to be REAL ID compliant to board an airplane, it is extremely troubling that TSA is allowing illegal aliens to use nonsecure documents as IDs to board planes.”

TSA administrator David Pekoske claimed that “under 1,000 illegal immigrants have boarded with arrest warrants this year.” Republicans remain skeptical of that number. They also argued that illegal immigrants should be deported rather than allowing to travel farther into the US.

“The fact that U.S. taxpayer dollars are being used directly or indirectly to pay for illegal aliens to be transported throughout the country is a slap in the face to all law-abiding, tax-paying Americans, they wrote.

“Instead of using taxpayer funds to transport illegal aliens, DHS should be using those funds to acquire additional detention space so that it may detain the illegal aliens as required by law.”
