One of the purported reasons we have government-issued IDs is for national security, that hackneyed excuse for just about everything our government does that encroaches on our liberties. We have IDs so that so-called law enforcement can make sure we’re U.S. citizens, so that they can check our criminal history and see where we live. Our personal identification information is interconnected so that our government at all levels can keep track of us. For national security purposes, of course.
So if it’s really all about protecting our nation from stealthy foreign terrorists, you’d think that of all modes of transportation to be protected by mandatory identification screening, it would be commercial jets. You know, because of 9/11, that other excuse for everything bad the government does.
Apparently, if you’re an illegal alien that’s hopped across the Southern border, you don’t have to have an ID to board a plane. And I’m not talking about some specially commissioned military jet specifically for transporting illegals. I’m talking about them boarding commercial jet airliners with American passengers – passengers who were treated like terrorists by the TSA in the “security” checkpoint and who were forced to show their government-issued ID in order to get on the plane.
If you’re an American, you’re presumed to be guilty by the TSA until proven to be a “low flight risk.” If you’re an illegal alien who’s crossed the border from Mexico, you’re presumed to be innocent and deemed not a risk at all. I mean, what are the chances that some Middle Eastern terrorist or drug cartel member would actually use the current levee-breaking border crisis to sneak into the U.S. and board passenger jets? That would never happen, so there’s nothing to worry about.
Breitbart reported on what Hector Garza, the spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council stated. According to Garza:
“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.
“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. 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.
“We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.”
This makes no sense unless the government’s stated reasons aren’t their actual reasons. We have government-issued IDs so that we can all be tracked. This isn’t about national security. Otherwise, these people wouldn’t be allowed to be the exceptions to the law. They want these people flooding across the border. They want us all to be one, big happy family. After all, the Southern border is racist.
As for the Northern border? Well, that needs to stay, because we all know how dangerous Canadians are, eh. But the Southern border needs to be erased. It practically is already.
