A new report reveals the methods the Transportation Security Administration is using to “verify” the identity of illegal aliens who are boarding airplanes without proper I.D. – or, rather, how they aren’t.
After the Daily Signal published a report about how illegal aliens are being allowed to get on planes with the general ticket-buying public after being released by Customs and Border Protection, the TSA tried to explain how they’re validating these people’s identity before letting them get on the next Delta flight – all while forcing American citizens who bought their own tickets to show certain forms of government-issued I.D. to get on a plane.
In a response sent to the Daily Signal, the agency wrote:
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has an established process to verify the identity of individuals who have received a Notice to Appear from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and are ticketed for travel on a commercial airline.
TSA will continue to coordinate with CBP and use resources available to the agency to confirm the identity of every traveler to ensure that transportation security is not compromised.
That claim comes after widespread reports that immigration officials, under the direction of the Biden administration, are giving some illegal aliens taxpayer-funded plane tickets after they come into the country unlawfully, allowing them to enter the country and fly to their intended destination without proper I.D. or any lawful right to even be in the country. Photos from airports at or near the border show crowds of migrants holding manilla envelopes with federally-issued documents and messages, waiting to board planes to the interior of the country.

I’m at the McAllen, TX airport and noticed many migrants with envelopes and tickets to cities across America.— IW Anthony (@InformedAnthony) March 28, 2021
I was able to legibly read some locations:

Those “documents” the TSA will reportedly accept include things like the person’s notice to appear in court for an immigration hearing (which some border crossers aren’t even being given because border agents are too overwhelmed), and an “Alien Booking Record,” which includes any identifying (and completely unverifiable) information the person gave to border agents after being nabbed coming into the U.S. illegally.
These vague documents are now being accepted as valid forms of I.D. to board a plane in place of things like a driver’s license, passport, military I.D. or other validated, government-issued identification.
Illegal aliens who aren’t put on a plane are often dropped off at bus stations with a ticket to wherever they want to go, often without their identity having been validated and without having undergone a COVID test before being released.
