As mentioned here previously, Border Patrol representatives last week reported that TSA was allowing illegal aliens to board commercial flights with no identification apart from a piece of paper. TSA's media mouthpiece immediately branded the report as false, and did so repeatedly.
Late Friday night, however, everything changed:
TSA employees at Laredo International Airport notified Border Patrol agents last night at 11 p.m. local time that a new policy was in place that would not allow illegal aliens to fly solely using an I-862, otherwise known as the Notice to Appear form. TSA employees stated they will allow illegal aliens who had been released on their own to travel with a foreign passport or ID in addition to an I-862.
So TSA claimed that the Border Patrol revelations were false, but then sort of realized that maybe they weren't, and so they sort of issued a new policy at 11 p.m. Friday, and so it's all good now; illegals have to have a passport or ID in addition to the piece of paper in order to get on a plane.
Glad they got that all sorted out.
