As violent drug cartels take over Mexico and expand their criminal enterprises north, the United States has signed a “trusted traveler” agreement that allows pre-screened Mexican airline passengers to bypass lengthy airport security checkpoints.
The foreigners will get “trusted traveler cards” with fingerprints and other biometric data and they must answer customs declarations questions on touch-screen kiosks before leaving airport inspection areas. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claims it’s a way to enhance information sharing and mutual security in the face of “ever-evolving, multinational threats.”
About 84 million Mexicans are expected to qualify for the trusted traveler program, according to Mexico’s Interior Ministry Secretary, who signed the agreement on behalf of his country this week. Celebrating the festive occasion, the Mexican government official assured that the new accord will facilitate the U.S. entry of business travelers and tourists who are key factors in economic development, growth of trade and cultural exchange.
Mexicans will get the perk through the U.S. government’s Global Entry Program, which allows participants to obtain security clearance by presenting a “machine-readable” passport or resident card at airport “Global Entry kiosks.” The machines issue the foreign travelers a transaction receipt and directions to baggage claim and the exit into the United States. Applying is easy. Candidates fill out an online application, provide valid identification and answer a few questions from a Customs and Border Protection officer.
While Napolitano was in Mexico finalizing the trusted traveler agreement this week, she also took the opportunity to sign a “letter of intent” to develop a plan for protecting immigrants from criminal attacks as they cross the border—illegally—into the U.S. Mexican officials have long complained that American law enforcement officers stand by as illegal immigrants are robbed, killed or violently beaten. Napolitano has committed to reducing the risk to life and security of migrants, according to the Mexican minister.
Janet Napolitano and the rest of Obama’s fucking “open borders” wackjobs are bat-shit crazy. They have no intention of doing what it takes to protect national security and U.S. sovereignty. They flush our immigration laws down the toilet, and eviscerate and forbid the Border Patrol to do their job.
Not only that, but the Mexican government takes advantage of Janet and Obama’s kowtowing in the name of “civil rights”; for foreigners, which is not mentioned in our Constitution.
We have a war on our southern border, which Janet refuses to fight.
Hey Janet, while you’re giving free passage to illegals (including rapists, murderers and MS13 gangs), and muslim terrorists who have used the Mexican border as an infiltration point of entry, maybe you can give me one of those “trusted traveler” passes. I’m an American citizen, retired Soldier with 30 years of Army service, 19 years of combined intelligence and counter terrorism experience, and I have at least three forms of ID. I want to skip through without being subjected to the asinine groping, scanning, and long lines.
How ’bout it, Jan? Or do I have to be Mexican or muslim to qualify?
