TSA Let 25 Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School Owned by Illegal Alien
(CNSNews.com) -- 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
Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses.
Rep. Mike Rogers (R.-Ala.), chairman of the House Homeland Security
Subcommittee on Transportation Security, said he found the GAO's
"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."http://cnsnews.com/news/article/tsa-let-25-illegal-aliens-att...
