Pekoske said he would respond to Sen. Hawley’s February letter tomorrow – the day after the hearing.
Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) asked Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administrator David Pekoske if they allowed illegal aliens to use arrest warrants as ID to get on planes. Spoiler: they do.

In late January, Fox News confirmed that The Transportation Security Administration was allowing illegal immigrants to use arrest warrants as an alternative form of ID to board airplanes.
“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 News. That refers to a civil immigration arrest warrant, not a criminal arrest warrant.
The agency added that the document will then be validated via an “alien identification number” being checked against a number of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) databases.
In February, Senator Hawley sent a letter to The Transportation Security Administration. Sen. Hawley asked if Pekoske had responded to the letter. Pekoske said no but will respond tomorrow.
U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) wrote to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administrator David Pekoske demanding answers on why illegal aliens have been allowed to present arrest warrants and notices of deportation as valid identification to pass checkpoints and board commercial airplanes.
Senator Hawley wrote, “The point of an arrest warrant is for police to actively seek out and apprehend criminals. However, you have now confirmed that illegal aliens may present arrest warrants to federal officials to board commercial aircrafts. This dystopian inversion exceeds the point of absurdity where radical open-border policies attempt to accomplish the very opposite of DHS’s core mission: apprehending those who cross our borders illegally.”
