According to the National Border Patrol Council, illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners with only their Notice to Appear forms and no verifiable identification.
“This is not a federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” NBPC spokesman Hector Garza told Breitbart Texas.
“This just adds insult to injury,” added Garza. “Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate.
We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.”
Breitbart Texas obtained a sample document and a statement from the NBPC condemning the process:
“The National Border Patrol Council adamantly opposes the decision of DHS to release the illegal aliens who have been transported from the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector to other locations for processing. The lack of consequences has furthered this crisis and will only continue to do so. The fact that TSA is accepting the I-862 (Notice to Appear) as a form of identification and allowing illegal aliens to travel commercially shows just how little regard the federal government has for its own immigration laws.”
