Yet another example of one of the backbreaking, nasty jobs the lazy Americans simply won’t do.

Quote:
On Friday, Jophan Porter, 38, was arrested in Miami International Airport after it was discovered that he was in possession of several documents in the name of Anthony Frair, a New York resident.

Porter is actually in the country illegally from Guyana and has been working as a flight attendant with American Eagle Airlines, and has been doing so with a Department of Transportation ID card and a passport in Frair’s name.

The implications are frightening. I wonder how many illegal aliens have been cleared by our inept government.

If an illegal can squeak past a background check. Then who else has?
Can terrorists do the same?
If so why even bother with any airport security.
The fact of the matter is a criminal was missed during the screening process.

You actually have to ask? Do you actually think that all illegals in our country are just here to work and none of them could be terrorists? Here we have an illegal working as a flight attendant. Does 9/11 ring a bell?

The only terrorists that have launched successful noteworthy attacks over here have been here legally.

The post I quoted appeared to be implying that the frightening implications were related to illegal immigrants getting cleared.

The 911 hijackers were here legally.

I see, so because the 9/11 terrorists entered legally it is set in stone that any future ones will do the same? It IS frightening that our security checks were able to be compromised.
