Do you start to dissect this story with the egregious lie from an untouchable and all-powerful central government bureaucracy? Or with the exposure of the depths to which we’ve sunk to comfort ourselves with security theater? Or perhaps said bureaucracies’ blank disregard for the potential for disaster contained within both the lie and the kabuki?
HOUSTON, Texas — The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently penned a letter that confirmed what Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby reported back in July–the agency was allowing illegal immigrants to board planes using only Notice to Appear forms that they received after entering the U.S. illegally. The revelation directly contradicts the TSA’s previous allegations thatÂ Darby’sÂ report was “completely wrong.” Reacting to the TSA’s letter, Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert told Breitbart Texas that theÂ agency’s handling of the situationÂ are both “egregious” and “destructive.”
“The TSA serves under and is accountable to the Commander in Chief, and this egregious, destructive conduct by the Homeland Security Department and TSA puts Americans at grave risk,” Gohmert said. “Why do we have to undergo groping, thorough review of our photo ID’s, and long infernal lines while the TSA is figuratively closing it’s eyes and waving people with no regard for U.S. law right onto airplanes?”
The congressman continued, “Maybe the President didn’t hear SOUTHCOM Commander, Gen. John Kelly, both times he made clear in Congressional testimony that the criminal networks and terrorist organizations penetrating our southern border are a threat toÂ the very existence of the United States. That includes being a threat to whatever golf course the President happens to be on at the time.”
Whichever way you choose to go in analyzing this outrage against common sense, responsibility, the rule of law, and the so-called “citizenry” itself, you gotta love Gohmert’s parting shot.
