American citizens are required to have a REAL ID to pass through airport security.
Yet illegal immigrants can use an arrest warrant to board a flight.
In the first three months of Fiscal Year 2022, TSA allowed nearly 45,000 migrants to use immigration enforcement documents, like arrest warrants, as alternate forms of ID to fly within the United States.
This is an insult to law-abiding Americans.
That’s why Senator Marco Rubio and I introduced the SECURE Flights Act of 2022 to make it clear that Department of Homeland Security-issued documents – like arrest warrants – are not valid forms of identification to fly.
The administration’s failure to enforce our laws, combined with the surge of illegal immigrants and drug paraphernalia across the southern border, is a grave threat to U.S. national security.
President Biden must reverse course immediately and put the safety and security of all Americans first.
