TSA Let 25 Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School Owned by Illegal Alien By Edwin Mora July 18, 2012

( -- The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved flight training for 25 illegal aliens at a Boston-area flight school that was owned by yet another illegal alien, according to the Government Accountability Office.

The illegal-alien flight-school attendees included eight who had entered the country illegally and 17 who had overstayed their allowed period of admission into the United States, according to an audit by the GAO.

Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses.

Discovery of the trouble at the flight school began when local police--not federal authorities--pulled over the owner of the school on a traffic violation and were able to determine that he was an illegal alien.

Rep. Mike Rogers (R.-Ala.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security, said he found the GAO's findings "amazing."

"We have cancer patients, Iraq War veterans and Nobel Prize winners all forced to undergo rigorous security checks before getting on an airplane," said Rogers, "and at the same time, ten years after 9/11, there are foreign nationals in the United States trained to fly just like Mohammed Atta and the other 9/11 hijackers did, and not all of them are necessarily getting a security background check."

Stephen Lord, who is the GAO's director of Homeland Security and Justice Issues, testified about the matter Wednesday in Rogers' subcommittee. Rogers asked him: "Isn't it true that, based on your report, the Transportation Security Administration cannot assure the American people that foreign terrorists are not in this country learning how to fly airplanes, yes or no?"

Lord responded: "At this time, no."

While we are all being stripped searched to travel at the front door of the airports, train stations, bus terminals, highways, illegal aliens and terrorists work the airplanes, fly airplanes, drive the buses, and could easily place terrorist devices onboard airplanes, trains, buses, and wherever they like.

Just be thankful it wasn't 25 Tea Partiers attending a flight owned by another Tea Partier.

We have enough of their racism, bigotry and homophobia at ground level already.

I'm not surprised you were a little confused. For eleven years I ran a large university flight school. Many times I took non-American students to be fingerprinted and prepared paperwork for the background checks. But I didn't realize until I read this story that there was no cross-checking regarding illegal aliens.

Bush didn’t create it [the TSA]with this in mind - he created it to stop another 9.11 - He didn’t set up a system for Walmart Security Guard types to be on the look-out for conservatives, children to molest and places for folks with authority problems to throw their weight around. Nope that was done by Obama and Janet - two totalitarians in waiting.

Every liberal I know uses the “Bush’ comment you just used. Did you know that it’s one of their talking points?

Liberal talking point or not, a much better way to prevent another 9-11 would be to secure our borders and give those in charge of immigration the tools needed to perform timely, accurate assessments.

Instead Bush, like a good Globalist, spent his time and energy on promoting amnesty and the unhindered movement of goods and people across our wide open borders.

You’re joking, right? You have first hand knowledge of what Bush’s intentions were? Then you should know why a whole new layer of gov’t was necessary to ‘protect the homeland’ when we already have the FBI, CIA, NSA, National Guard, the Armed Forces, Border Patrol, ATF, the Secret Service, and probably many other alphabet agencies to protect us.

Tell us, what were Bush’s intentions when he advocated the North American Union Treaty without Congressional approval or even debate? What were his intentions of failing to secure the Southern border even after 9/11? How about signing McCain’s flawed Campaign Finance Reform bill? I could go on but there’s limited time and space.
