The safety of America's airline passengers is being compromised for the sake of diversity in hiring air traffic controllers, an attorney suing the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host Tucker Carlson on Friday.

During the Obama administration, the FAA replaced the previous hiring standards with rules designed to increase diversity among air traffic controllers, attorney Michael Pearson said.

“A group within the FAA, including the human resources function within the FAA -- the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees -- determined that the workforce was too white,” Pearson told Carlson. “They had a concerted effort through the Department of Transportation in the Obama administration to change that.”

"A group within the FAA ... determined that the workforce was too white. They had a concerted effort ... in the Obama administration to change that." - Michael Pearson, attorney suing the Federal Aviation Administration Pearson said there’s no data to support that increasing diversity in the ranks of air traffic controllers would make the flying public safer. Thus, Pearson said, he is suing the FAA for its revised hiring practices.

“It’s the safety of the national airspace that’s at risk here,” Pearson said.

Pearson, who said he was an air traffic controller in four of the nation's busiest facilities for nearly 27 years, asserted that much of the problem lies with the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), the union that controls a large political action committee.

"They fund a lot of politicians,” Pearson told Carlson.

“Nothing will get passed in aviation unless they get blessing of the controller’s union,” he said, referring to legislation proposed in Congress. “Their position radically changed when the Obama administration came in.

“This is social engineering at its finest,” he added.

TSA has very uneven quality standards for it’s employees. Take a flight from Philly to Miami. In Philly the TSA employees are bored and indifferent. In Miami you’d think they were hiring Marines. They take the job much more seriously down there.

I don’t think I could do that job.

Tucker read the test items, and it was shocking. Those seeking to be flight controllers get more points for being unemployed for the current three years than those who are pilots! They also get more points if their worst subject in school was science.

Yep, that’s really who passengers want guiding their flights at our over-crowded air traffic hubs.

Wait until we find out there was a similar program for neuro surgeons.

His goal was to slowly destroy the country in every way he possibly could...all “under the radar” as much as possible.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
The illegal, unqualified, ineligible foreign, commie, POS, imposter/usurper needs to be locked up in GITMO as an enemy combatant.
