Hawley grills Biden officials for letting illegals identify themselves with arrest warrants

Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley grilled the head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Thursday for allowing migrants to use arrest warrants as a form of identification when flying across the country.

The TSA allows migrants to use the warrants as a form of identification while traveling through U.S. airports, according to a letter exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation in January. Under 1,000 migrants have used the civil arrest warrants or deportation notices as identification at airports, TSA Administrator David Pekoske told Hawley.

“So we aren’t looking at whether a person is legal or illegal in the country,” Pekoske told Hawley at the Senate Homeland Security committee hearing for his re-nomination.

Hawley asked Pekoske for a reason for disregarding one’s legal status when screening migrants through TSA.
