Joe Biden has been accused of “knowingly putting our national security at risk” after his TSA revealed that illegal migrants flying without proper ID can simply use their arrest warrant. TSA Administrator David Pekoske made the admission in a response to Representative Lance Gooden. Mr Pekoske said that certain documents may be considered acceptable alternative forms of identification, including a ‘Warrant for Arrest of Alien’ and a ‘Warrant of Removal/Deportation’.

This sparked ridicule and outrage from Republicans, with Florida Senator Marco Rubio tweeting: “Just when you think these radical leftists in this administration can’t do anything crazier we learn TSA allows illegal immigrants to use arrest warrants as a form of ID.

“We are working to see what can be done to stop this from continuing.”

Fox Business host Stuart Varney exclaimed: “You show your driving license or passport, but illegals immigrants can show their arrest warrants.

“And you don’t think we have a border crisis, good lord!”

Rep. Gooden from Texas tweeted: “Criminal illegal aliens SHOULD NOT be allowed to use arrest warrants as ID to board planes into the US.”

He has described the use of arrest warrants as ID as “totally crazy”.

The Texan politician later told Fox News: “It tells me all I need to do is wear a mask and commit a crime to fly in America.”

Mr Gooden had originally sent a letter to TSA after a whistleblower claimed the agency was allowing “unknown migrants” to board commercial airlines in the US.

However, the TSA said that those who offer “alternate IDs” are subject to additional screening.

The policy applies to non-US and Canadian citizens who do not have government-issued ID or passports.

In his letter, Mr Pekoske wrote: “TSA is committed to ensuring that all travellers, regardless of immigration status, are pre-screened before they arrive to the airport, have their pre-screening status and identification verified at security checkpoints, and receive appropriate screening based on risk before entering the sterile area of the airport.”

While the policy has been in place before the Biden administration, Republicans are outraged as the ongoing border crisis with Mexico gathers pace.

According to a court filing earlier this month, there were 178,840 migrant encounters in December, up from 173,620 in November.

That was an increase from the 164,753 apprehensions in October.

Those numbers are dramatically higher than the previous year, when there were 72,113 encounters in November and 73,994 in December in 2020.
