What the...? Up to 84MM Mexicans To Be Designated 'Trusted Travelers', Allowing Them to Bypass Airport Security Checks

Worried that foreign travelers -- especially those entering the U.S. from Mexico -- will be insulted by intrusive security pat-downs in airports? Well, rest easy: Janet Napolitano is on the job.

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... 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 [who] will get the perk through the U.S. government’s Global Entry Program... 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.

You couldn't even make this s*** up.

Perhaps Napolitano will refer to this program as "Skipping the Airport Screenings Americans Won't Skip."

LOL !

OH MY, oh my.

Just like Hillary Clinton's State Department, or Holder's DOJ, the Napolitano will be focused on harassing US Citizens giving special rights to other non Citizens.

Hillary has been obsessed with Our Allies, not the threats or enemies. Holder as well, seems to think giving Terrorists the rights of a US Citizen is a good idea, while he is busy denying the rights of those in Arizona to pass Laws designed to protect lives.

All this is the Obama, Reid, Pelosi, etc., way - the product of the Democratic Party.

Now the TSA will waste millions x-raying and patting down US Citizens flying on a plane. The government UNION labor force is fed nicely, overtly searching those who largely no threat to anyone, as they ignore the safer - less costly alternative of targeting the Muslim Extreme terrorists.

And now they are giving some from Mexico exemptions?

Oh my...

It'd take about 5 WACOs or a 6 digit casualty count in an incident, before people get really worried. America is so big that even if one state gets obliterated and goes into war, the other states will just pass it on by if they are allowed to.

obama and co treat our enemies better than us and our allies.

The recent TSA groping and porn photos of innocent old ladies and nuns in wheelchairs is no more than obama and napolitano showing the mostly conservative people who fly that they are actually boss. If you look at the demographics of the typical commercial airline traveller, you will see that it is a majority of the right that fly. They are getting back at us for throwing the dems out of the house and saying it is "We, the people"

Meanwhile they'll continue gate raping and porn scanning innocent people using TSA agents that have been trained by ISLAMIC SUPREMACISTS in how to appease muslims and humiliate Americans. Now we're going to protect the 'dignity' of illegal alien invaders too? WTF?

Here's my blog with info about the TSA agents being trained by terrorist affiliates and John Pistole's long history of dhimmitude:

ACA - wow, I never thought about that. I fly a lot - and you are correct that the demo is mostly white and likely to be conservative. My then 3 year old daughter was subjected to wanding and a pat-down on a flight to the Bahamas. All the whites on the flight went to secondary - none of the blacks. The TSA agents - 100% black. It was a pay back.

Dudes, two words. Air Taxi. Run small "business" jets or turbo props out of county airports. A network of these will get you anywhere you want to go with minimal fuss. Get it up and running it'll be priced about the same as bargain priced airlines within five years.

You have no idea what you are talking about.

This is a customs program, for customs screening for international travelers, most often for Mexicans and Canadians. The security checks are for entering the country and passing through customs, and have nothing to do with security pat-downs.

Please be more informed.

Hay all,

While Neapolitan 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. Neapolitan has committed to reducing the risk to life and security of migrants, according to the Mexican minister.

Ok... Correct me if I'm wrong, Global Entry Program applies to ENTRY. In other words, AFTER the plane has landed. The only security checks at this point is answering a couple of questions about fruit, veggies and if you have any items subject to duty.

If they are DEPARTING the airport on a flight, they will still have to go thru the security checkpoints, pat-down, scan, whatever... same as everyone else who holds a ticket.

Wrong?

Is she aware that mid eastern types are learning Spanish and living in Spanish-speaking countries so they can enter the U.S. under the radar? Is she aware that terrorists are crossing into the U.S. via our southern border? Is she aware of the lawlessness south of the border which will produce terrorists entering with Mexican documentation who will likely have bombs on them because of her silly policy?

If something happens, either on an airplane or after, is this the "crisis" the Dims want for Obama? This is one more opportunity for it to happen to help the Obama cause.
