Apparently, traveling with identification is only for American citizens these days since illegal aliens are now permitted to fly on commercial airlines without any valid identification. The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) say that all they need is a “Notice to Appear” form, and they are free to fly wherever they please. No questions asked.
“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 use for domestic travel,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman Hector Garza told Breitbart Texas in the exclusive interview. “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,” Garza continued. “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.”

If these statements aren’t astonishing enough, don’t worry: there’s more.
The shocking assertions by Garza were further validated by the national body of the NBPC. Breitbart Texas obtained an exclusive statement from the NBPC.
“The National Border Patrol Council adamantly opposes the decision of DHS to release the illegal aliens who have been transported from the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector to other locations for processing. The lack of consequences has furthered this crisis and will only continue to do so. The fact that TSA is accepting the I-862 (Notice to Appear) as a form of identification and allowing illegal aliens to travel commercially shows just how little regard the federal government has for its own immigration laws.”
Breitbart Texas also spoke with Shawn Moran, the vice president of the NBPC and he stated, “Why waste money and effort transporting people from the RGV if we are only going to release them with no real way to track them? Why are we allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer.”
Spokesman Garza highlighted the significance of the NBPC’s assertions regarding security threats posed to the American public and stated, “The threat this poses from terrorists upon the American people is absolutely unacceptable. Central Americans are not the only people crossing our border and being released. Does anyone actually think that cartels and others criminal or possible terrorist organizations are not taking advantage of the fact that we are having to leave our border wide open while we reassigning the majority of our agents to process family units and minors? Of course this situation is being exploited by such threats.”
With the safety of commercial airliners in question, the threat to our nation’s security could be further heightened, NBPC fears. The 2012 United Nations (UN) report supports this concern. The UN Office on Drugs and Crime exposed that some traveling from “terror prone Somalia” were entering the U.S. illegally via Central America.
“Central Americans are not the only ones being smuggled through Mexico to the United States. Irregular migrants from the Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Somalia, and Ethiopia), as well as South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, India), China, and other African and Asian states are being smuggled through Central America.”
Keeping the UN report in mind, it is possible that many illegal immigrants could enter under the guise of being a Central American native, while in reality jeopardizing the safety of this country. With no identification or legitimate documentation, who could stop them?

A comprehensive analysis of Somalia was conducted by the nonpartisan Council on Foreign Relations. This is some of what they had to say:
“Its porous borders mean that individuals can enter without visas, and once inside the country, enjoy an almost complete lack of law enforcement. Somalia has long served as a passageway from Africa to the Middle East based on its coastal location on the Horn of Africa, just a boat ride away from Yemen. These aspects make Somalia a desirable haven for transnational terrorists, something Al-Qaeda has tried to capitalize on before, and is trying again now.”
Just when we think we have seen it all, we are proven wrong time and time again. Since it is unlikely that any of this is a joke, we can only hope that the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) will wake up and realize the harmful effects this decision will undoubtedly have on our nation – and soon.
Breitbart has attempted to reach the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for comment, but had not heard back from them by the time their article was published.
