Vanity-possible illegal immigrant flight to Baltimore
Vanity | July 12, 2014 | Cyclotic

Posted on 07/17/2014 3:28:15 PM PDT by cyclotic

I'm awaiting a flight in Phoenix to Baltimore. 11 teenage Hispanic boys and four non-Hispanic adults just sat down all in a row in the terminal. The boys have not said a word and oddly, none of them have shoelaces.

This is weird and I'm not sure what to make of it or what to do. Being in a TSA zone, I sure don't want to start a protest.

I wonder what .gov ID they will show to get on a plane.

No. Jeans and variety of shorts. Still no talking like a normal group of boys would do.

Try to politely to their non-hispanic handlers - see what kind of response you get.

Do you have the proper supplies to protect yourself from TB, etc. I think the air filtration may filter out TB, but I am not sure.

Cyclotic could use some ideas.

Why don’t you express your concerns to the personnel at the desk? Ask them if these are illegals and say you’re concerned about health issues and don’t want to fly with sick people aboard the plane.

No shoelaces probably means they’re in juvenile custody.
Take comfort knowing you paid for their tickets

You’ll pay for their food
You’ll pay for their shelter
You’ll pay for their entertainment
You’ll pay for their “education,”
You’ll pay for their voting rights

If there is any doubt, then there is no doubt. Catch the next plane. For some real fun, if they are from elsewhere, tell your fellow passengers why you are taking the next flight, and watch the fun ensue.

Confirmed. Illegals heading to Maryland. Handler just insulted me but confirmed they were from the border. Now she’s talking to another handler.

I highly recomnment at least going to an airport store and buy a handkerchief to werar over your mouth and nose throughout the flight AND buy hand sanitizer and dont touch anything on that plane that you do not need to.Droplet transfer of TB baccillus tends to live a while on surfaces! (like tray tables, etc)

I found this:
This morning Diane Sawyer of ABC News interviewed Andrew Speaker, who stirred up panic, outrage, and controversy after he flew across the Atlantic on a commerical flight, knowing that he was infected with a drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis (TB).

Speaker, an attorney from Atlanta, GA, says that CDC doctors told him that he could not infect others before he flew to Europe, but while he was in Europe, the CDC called him and told him to cancel his commercial flight plans and “turn himself in” at a European clinic.

“We said, ‘Let’s get home and get to Denver,’” Speaker says about his and his wife’s decision to leave Europe. “Both of us worried if I turned myself [in] the next day, that’s it. It’s very real that I could have died there... People told me if I was anywhere but Denver, I’ll die.

“I feel awful. I’ve lived in state of constant fear and anxiety. I’m exhausted, for a week now. And to think that someone else is now feeling that, I wouldn’t want anyone to feel that way - it’s awful. I just hope they can forgive me and understand that I really believed [I] wasn’t putting people at risk because that’s what the people told me.”

Sawyer and Speaker both wore masks during the interview on Good Morning America, and the interview took place in a room with air filtration and UV lights.

Health officials are scrambling to find passengers who were on the commercial airliners with Speaker so that they can get tested for TB.

The recirculated air in airplane cabins is notorious for carrying germs as well as chemical contaminants. The Plane Clean Air Filter (pictured above) attaches to your personal above-head air nozzle and removes 99.5% of all bacteria, viruses, and allergens from your air stream.

Many people wear masks when traveling on airplanes

TB bacteria is normally carried in “droplets” ranging from 1 - 5 microns, and M. tuberculosis itself ranges from 0.4 – 1.4 microns in size, so I would recommend a mask with a HEPA filter, which filters particles down to 0.3 microns.

Over the past few years, different health agencies have given conflicting reports about the type of mask necessary for preventing the transmission of TB. To be safe, I’d go with true HEPA mask with 99.97% efficiency, although an N95 mask with 95% efficiency gels with CDC recommendations and would certainly be better than nothing.

The way the mask fits is even more important than its filter efficiency, as an ill-fitting mask may lose up to 20% of its efficiency. To be effective, the mask needs to be the correct size and fit snuggly with no gaps between the mask and face.

Ask them this:

“Soy de Casa de Maryland. ¿Eres mis pupilos?”

If they say “si”, they’re illegal aliens. Then ask them about MS-13; that will get them all excited.

As many as 15 percent of U.S. commercial airlines that carry more than 100 passengers lack HEPA filters. And there are currently no standards or regulations that enforce filtration. Even though cabin air is exchanged through the system about 20 to 30 times per hour, there remains a risk, albeit minor, of airborne disease transmission. But who exactly is at risk of infection? And what are they at risk of catching?

Risk of transmission
Generally speaking, your risk of airborne disease transmission depends on how close you’re seated to an infected individual. A safe distance of at least two rows during an eight-hour flight was traditionally assumed sufficient, but this estimate came from studies on the spread of tuberculosis, a contagious bacterial infection of the lower lungs. When a single passenger with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), a viral respiratory infection, infected 22 fellow passengers on a flight from Hong Kong to Beijing back in 2003, researchers realized that passengers as far away as seven rows were at risk.While increasing ventilation can help to decrease the risk of airborne transmission to nearby passengers, the greater risk of infection comes not necessarily from the air, but from direct contact. Diseases like influenza, for example, are more likely to be contracted when someone coughs or sneezes directly on or near you or when you touch an infected surface and then touch an entry pathway on the body, like the eyes or mouth. In many respects, then, airplanes are not much different than other forms of public transportation, like buses or trains. Washing your hands and avoiding touching your face will therefore help to further prevent disease above and beyond proper air filtration.

I asked why they didn’t have shoelaces. She said they were in juvenile detention. I said where from. She said border. I asked if she wasn’t ashamed of herself for facilitating an invasion of illegals. She said have a nice day and went to report the contact to her boss.

Nice. I woulda raised my voice a little as she walked off...something like, I'd be having a better day if you weren't escorting illegals with unknown diseases! HA! I woulda, too. Just like I gave the TSA agents copies of pocket Constitutions the last time I flew.

Are they on your flight? What is the Southwest flight number and arrival time? I assume it is to BWI? I’m sure we can get some VA/DC/MD freepers to protests them on arrival.

Then again if its MD they will charge you with a hate crime.

This is insane. They are taking criminal juveniles and flying them, on taxpayer dime, further into the country. Not out of the country---which they tell us is an impossible task BUT further into the country.

I am speechless.

Does anyone else even seem to notice this? Are you the only one who seems to even see this?

They’re probably most likely “Obama’s refugees” as you are not the only one I have talked to who has seen this. He is sending them all over the country. What we got is a traitor for President, that is the bottom line here. Besides assisting terrorists who we are at war with, he is also blatantly assisting foreigners in breaking United states laws not to mention stealing money from the people. The question is not him: You’re always going to find traitors and general punk asses like that. The question is Congress. THEY are responsible for taking action when this happens, THEY are not doing their job. Republicans and Democrats are refusing to take action, and that is where the problem lies.

Is there any way we can get a list of those airlines by name that are flying illegals? We are headed into the peak flying season and several families I know are planning to fly to their vacation destination. Would like to be able to tell them which airlines to avoid booking flights on.

Maybe start a boycott of those airlines?

I think I would inform the nearest airline stewardists that having possible diseased criminal invaders on a plane full of US Citizens is wantedly putting you and every other passenger at risk and failure to inform those
“Customers” is failure of due diligence on their part and could very well result in a very public Civil trial should anyone become Ill.

They are in back. I spoke to a pilot who alerted the gate agent to monitor the sick kid. Apparently they get a med exam before being allowed to leave detention. Like I believe the government doctors.
