Americans and legal travelers boarding aircraft in the United States must give state or federally-issued identification. In 2025, that requirement will be increased to require "real IDs," which contain more data than simple state-issued drivers licenses.
"For non-citizens and non-U.S. nationals who do not otherwise have acceptable forms of ID for presentation at security checkpoints, TSA may also accept certain DHS-issued forms, including ICE Form I-200 (Warrant for Arrest of an Alien)," a TSA spokesperson told Fox. This document is then validated using an "alien identification number" which is checked against CBP databases.
"All passengers whose identity is verified through alternate procedures receive additional screening before being allowed into the secure area of the airport," the TSA said in a statement.
In a Spaces hosted by James O'Keefe and Ashley St. Clair, pilots revealed that illegal immigrants are not subject to the same kinds of security screenings as other passengers. Some illegal immigrants are issued boarding passes reading "no name given."
In short, those who commit the crime of crossing the border illegally are not subject to the same laws the citizens of the United States are forced to comply with in order to travel. When illegal immigrants cross the border and are apprehended, they are given a court date several years off then released into the US. Often, they are given shelter, housing, and are eligible to apply for work permits in a matter of months. While DHS has said that most of those who cross will not be eligible to stay, they are allowed to create lives in the US anyway.
In 2022, the Biden administration proposed an ID system for illegal immigrants called the "ICE Secure Docket Card program" which would give illegal immigrants temporary ID cards and a legal form of identification they could use during their immigration process of trying to gain permanent residency status in the US.
$10 million was allocated for the pilot program.
"According to a recent report," said the House Oversight Committee at the time, "the Administration is planning to issue identification cards to individuals who illegally cross the southwest border and are released into the interior of the U.S. This pilot program, known as the ICE Secure Docket Card program, is intended in part to help illegal immigrants circumvent checking in physically at ICE offices and more easily access benefits within the United States. We are concerned that this pilot program is yet another Biden Administration move encouraging illegal immigration by rewarding illegal immigrants for breaking our laws."
