Mack: Enhanced TSA Security Screenings Go Too Far
WASHINGTON – Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14) today called the enhanced pat-downs performed by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents an invasion of Americans’ privacy rights, and called on TSA to cease them immediately so Congress can review airport screening policies.
“TSA’s new enhanced security screenings are outrageous and have gone too far. We all want our nation to be safe, but this security must not come at the expense of our freedoms. I’m extremely concerned that TSA’s enhanced pat-downs infringe on individuals’ privacy rights and give the federal government unprecedented power.
“The enhanced pat-downs should cease immediately. Congress and the Administration must examine whether there are other measures we can take such as privatizing TSA or revising the security searches to ensure our national security while protecting one’s rights.”
