More people are flying than ever before. Planes are packed. So you trust the personnel hired by the airport to make sure no guns, knives or bombs are brought on board? (And yes, that’s what I mean! Remember the “shoe bomber?”). Sheesh, the airlines can’t even keep the fake ESA dogs in line!

TSA allowed me to fly in 2018 without ID between Houston and Las Vegas and back.


They just had to lay their hands all over me first.

Asylum seekers are illegal immigrants if they don't meet the requirements for asylum, and 98% of these people don't.

So as an American citizen whose family has been here for over 400 years I need proper documentation but illegals don't. Good to know they have their priorities as to which people are more important.

No they are illegal aliens that are taking advantage of a loophole in our system and our gullible generosity.



If things are so bad for them in their homelands that they are forced to flee with nothing but the clothes on their backs then why do they continue to march thousands of miles to make it to America when technically they should be stopping in the next country they enter?



I find it hard to believe that every single country in South America, Central America and Mexico is as violent and corrupt as their homelands. If they all are then we should be extra careful as to who we allow in to our relatively safe country because these people are bound to be carrying their problems of crime and violence with them.

When did we start following or caring about some international law as opposed to our own?

Real ID goes into effect Oct. 1. Asylum seekers should be shipped to Mexico to await their court dates, which is part of the deal Mexico just agreed to re: tariffs. I hope that means we can round up the ones who are in the US.

But let's see how trustworthy they are. We can't trust any other country so it seems.

U.S. laws say that they have up to a year to apply for asylum AFTER arriving here. There is no legal justification for forcing them to leave.

What other laws do you suggest we ignore? If we do not abide by our own laws, how does one expect others to do so?

You sound like a TSA employee.

The TSA needs to go. It's not going to. Things are going to get more political with them. We need to demand it end but we are too cowardly.
