Flying is such a pain, isn’t it? There are so many hoops to jump through, I’m surprised you don’t have to jump through an actual hoop. Flaming, most likely. But don’t bring nail clippers or a lighter on a plane! Ok, I get the lighter.
The level of precaution is somewhat understandable. After all, we all remember 9/11. That can’t be allowed to happen again, so if we have to take off our shoes and belts and show correct, acceptable ID, I guess that’s ok by me.
The United States has struggled of late as to what we think is justifiable reason to show an ID. Democrats think it’s racist to require an ID to vote. Personally, I feel like if you are too lazy or stupid to figure out how to get an ID, you probably shouldn’t be allowed to vote, but I’m old fashioned that way.
ID to buy booze, tobacco, drive, buy Sudafed, pick up prescription drugs, buy a gun; Dems have no problems with those. If they could, they would require 20 forms of ID on the gun.
ID to fly? Well, it would seem like this is a no brainer, right? I guess “no brainer” is apropos. Check out what this Democratic administration may be doing in an airport near you. Le’s see what Law Enforcement Today says:
For anyone who has been gawked at and patted down by TSA agents at one of America’s airports, the following is probably enough to make your blood boil.
This comes about as we learn that a number of illegals released by Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) have been allowed to use copies of their arrest warrants as proof of identification to board aircraft, Town Hall reports.

Hold up! Stop the plane. You are telling me that illegals are being allowed to fly with no identification, except the paperwork saying they are criminals? How is this ok?
We all have to be poked, prodded, scanned, patted down, and half undressed just to hop a 3-hour flight to the beach, and illegals with arrest warrants are just cruising on by with no ID?
Only in Joe Biden’s America. Just shameful and terrifying.
This has gotten the attention of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), who grilled the head of the TSA during a Senate hearing this past week.
TSA Administrator David Pekoske testified that around 1,000 illegals had used either arrest warrants or deportation orders to travel on US airlines, neither document of which contains photo identification as the rest of US flyers have been required to present in order to fly.
In a statement to Fox News, a TSA spokesperson said:
“For non-citizens and non-U.S. nationals who do not otherwise have acceptable forms of ID for presentation at security checkpoints, TSA may also accept certain DHS-issued forms, including ICE Form I-200 (Warrant for Arrest of an Alien).”
Once again, the America last policies of the Biden administration rear their heads. American citizens, potentially sitting next to undocumented criminal aliens, all on the government dime.
This is not ok. Do we still have busses? How about a Greyhound ticket rather than an airline flight? Or better yet, how about strengthening our borders and at least attempting to stem the flow of illegals coming into America. Nah, fewer potential voters for the Democrats.
If this infuriates you, it should. We as Americans should be able to trust our government to look out for our safety and best interest. Clearly they don’t.
