U.S. Homeland Security Committee demands TSA explain reports of racial profiling at Newark airport

The Republican chairman and ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee said they want the head of the Transportation Security Administration to explain how racial profiling became a common practice among TSA screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) and Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss) are both seeking answers from TSA Administrator John Pistole, after a federal report found several behavior detection officers, or BDOs, had singled out Mexican and Dominican passengers for special scrutiny, bag searches, questioning and document reviews in 2008 and 2009.

“We have been in contact with TSA. We are looking forward to hearing Administrator Pistole’s analysis,” King, who is from Long Island, said in a statement “After that, we will determine our course of action.”

Thompson said the report confirmed his fears the TSA’s Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques, or SPOT program, was vulnerable to manipulation or abuse.

“TSA should halt the SPOT program immediately until safeguards are put into place to address racial and ethnic profiling concerns,” Thompson said in a statement. “I will write TSA and request to see this internal report.”

TSA= The Stupid Agency

what are they doing, complaint for profiling,
the profiling should be in place from the beginning as oppose to those AMERICANS WHO ARE PRESENTING SOLID ROOTED PROOFS; Is in it what it’s all about , to find foreigners with intent to kill ,
so sorry for those being profile to get into the second most watch line, wich will release them as they provide more proof,of being AMERICANS,then being switch back to the first group, and coming down to foreigners from MIDDLE EAST COUNTRYS, COUNTING THOSE WHICH HAVE ACQUIRED OTHER NAMES TO INFILTRATE THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM; it’s all fair enough to the first group which can get out of those crowded lines faster which they deserve as UNQUESTIONABLE AMERICANS, who are tolerant enough to support those screening.

From my observations of TSA, I think many of the airport screeners are purposely doing reverse profiling. purposely selecting individuals who do not fit withing any terrorist profile. such as 80 year old grandmothers, teenage girls, middle-aged couples, babies and their mothers.
