One of the worst things about flying is going through security. My mother and sister-in-law flew from Houston to Pittsburgh a few weeks ago. My mother is 92 years old. She walks with a cane. She had no problem going through security in Houston. On their flight back to Houston from Pittsburgh, she and my sister-in-law had no problem going through security. Then the flight was cancelled.
When they went through security the next day, my mother, who had an expired driver’s license, was denied passage.
The expired license had her picture, date of birth, and the usual security features and worked in Houston and in Pittsburgh for the cancelled flight. Security management was called, and, after a lot of verbal back and forth, my mother was permitted to pass. You don’t want to mess with my sister-in-law.
What changed? No one knows.
At the same time, illegal aliens are being moved all over the United States without any identification.
“Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). ‘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,’ NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.”
Then there’s this. It’s classic:
“Kahler Nygard took a Spirit Airlines flight to Denver to visit with friends. When he departed from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Transportation Security Administration agents patted him down and allowed him to board his flight. When the plane landed, he was singled out and ordered to exit before the other passengers. After he exited the aircraft, TSA agents approached Nygard and demanded that he go through an additional pat-down and a screening of his luggage for explosive materials.
“He had already arrived safely at his destination in Denver and simply wanted to leave the airport. After an argument, which can be seen in the . . . video [below], Nygard refused the pat-down, despite the fact that TSA agents claimed that he would be arrested if he did not comply, and exited the airport without incident. According to KMSP-TV Fox 9 News, Nygard flew back to Minnesota [September 6th] . . . without any complications.”
